The holiday season is wonderful in many ways but incredibly bad for your waist line and your wallet. I don’t even like sweets all that much but if I had a dollar for every cookie, cake or candy that I’ve eaten this month, I’d probably have a hundred bucks. I’m not really into gift giving but I always loved the idea of preparing care packages for my loved ones. This year instead of baking the usual cookies, I’ve opted for a number of healthier options that will still entice the sweeties.
Sucré Santé: my list of healthy dessert recipes for the Holidays
Vegan, Gluten-Free, Natural Sweeteners and no sugar added (with exception of chocolate chips).
Raw brownies, nutty granola bars and energy balls made with dates, nuts and seeds are just a few of the goodies that I’ve prepared for my sucre sante packages. As I mentioned, I am not a big “sweets” person so these recipes are not my own creations but rather a compilation recipes that are tried, tested and true. They are all from well established (mostly vegan) food blogs. The links to the recipes are included in the list below, ENJOY!
