Our dessert recipes have a healthy spin but still taste indulgent and satisfying. We like to use small portion sizes, natural sweeteners, and whole food, nutrient-dense ingredients. Whatever the case, they always hit the sweet spot of being both delicious and enjoyable.

What’s a healthy dessert?
“Healthy dessert” is kind of an oxymoron, right? A dessert should be a treat, not a health food! When it comes to healthy eating, it’s hard to know how to handle sweets.
Here’s what works for us: our motto is all things in moderation. Indulgent desserts should be on limits as part of a healthy diet, so they don’t become a forbidden luxury.
The sweet spot, for us: healthy-ish!
At the same time, we love creating lighter versions of desserts. These are desserts made with whole foods and nutrient rich ingredients that feel like decadent treats.
That’s where our “sweet spot” is: healthy desserts that maximize both flavor and whole food ingredients.
What healthy-ish desserts are…
The healthy dessert recipes we create have calories and sugar and fat. But they’re carefully crafted to bring in whole ingredients that are rich in nutrients and leave you satisfied.
None of our dessert recipes have processed ingredients. And most of them won’t leave you with a sugar crash (as long as you don’t eat the whole pan!).
