A Healthy Dessert Round-Up

Soooooo...while we sit here sifting through the internet for delicious AND nutritious desserts to make for you cupcakes this month (wah, this is hard), we were thinking, maybe we aren't as unhealthy as we once thought (riiiiight, they say, empty carton of ice cream in hand). But, we were actually kind of surprised. A bit like taking a step back from your latest craft project (ahem, Katy) and thinking, 'it's not so much a Monet but this paint-by-numbers is kinda classy.'

Now, of course, we've already established that our health-food standards are fairly low (red wine = cancer-fighting miracle drink) and last week's larabars were largely made of dark chocolate (dark chocolate = cancer-fighting miracle food), but, hey, we're trying. E for effort. 

So, while we continue to sift through the internet, enjoy these healthy baked wonders that are definitely, maybe calorie-free, fat-free, full of fiber and cancer-fighting miracle ingredients and might make Bradley Cooper marry you.  

Almond Milk Granita

This granita is a good way to start the day. When you are full of freshness and will power and before you've broken into the wine and cookies at midday.

Homemade Granola Bars

Universal fact; all granola bars are good for you. Particularly those with seeds and nuts and millet (it's a thing).

Almond Orange Florentines

These cookies are SO THIN! There is nothing to them. It's like eating Almond Chocolate air only delicious.

Banana Soft-Serve

For reals, muffins. This is prolly the healthiest item we have ever and will ever make. 

Blue-Eyed Bakers' Granola

No joke, people are friends with us largely because of this granola. They ask for the recipe and we direct them to our amazing website and they are SHOCKED that it isn't a secret recipe. They tell us we are sitting on a gold mine. Alas, we're kind of lazy, you can capitalize on this granola!

Morning Glory Breakfast Cookies

Er, a bit of a stretch but these cookies have carrot in them! And raisins! Maybe just don't make them into whoopie pies like we did. Whoops.
