Healthy Dessert Recipes

Cakes, cookies, bars, brownies, pie, and ice cream -- with our selection of healthy desserts, you can still enjoy all your favorite sweets while eating healthfully. We've tweaked your favorite dessert recipes to make them healthier, and we'll teach you how to transform your own favorites into healthy dessert recipes, too. Start with substitutes -- for butter, that is. Learn how you can swap out butter for healthier options that still result in scrumptious desserts. We also have simple tips to bake with less fat, add whole grains, boost antioxidants, and more that will produce delicious sweets with nutritional benefits. Chocolate is, of course, the star of many indulgent desserts and everyday treats. Try our heart-healthier recipes -- starring dark chocolate -- and enjoy the mouthwatering rewards. You'll always get yummy results when you bake with what's in season. Try our seasonal favorites, such as frozen desserts in the summer and harvest-fruit desserts for fall. If you're looking for a tiny treat, go for one of the 20 sweet snacks that have just 50 calories or less -- perfect for work or after school.
