4 Guilt-Free Healthy Alternatives to Your Favorite Desserts
With the holidays in full swing, it gets harder and harder to satisfy your sweet and savory tooth while managing to zip up your favorite pair of jeans. No need to fret, there are delicious and healthy alternatives to your midnight snack that will keep you on track and satisfy your cravings more than ever before.
Foodstirs brownies will change your life, and this is not an exaggeration. This non-GMO boxed brownie mix is made with organic fair trade chocolate and organic unbleached flour. It may sound a bit fancy, but it really just means they are super tasty brownies without the artificial crap you find in other products.
Foodstirs also gives creative recipes to spice up the boxed mixes so that you always have something new to try. They offer a variety of dessert mixes such as gingerbread, sugar cookies, and chocolate chip cookies. The only thing between you and these insanely delicious brownies is two eggs, one tablespoon of water, and 1/3 cup of vegetable oil.
This microwavable popcorn is certified non-GMO, vegan, gluten-free, and is made with no artificial ingredients or colors. You can even choose from three flavors to satisfy your savory craving: Original Blend, Light & Zesty Blend, or Aromatic Herb Blend.
The Light & Zesty flavor is my personal favorite, but no flavor will disappoint. This addictive snack is finger lickin' good and will make you question the existence of buttered popcorn (sorry Orville).
Raw cookie dough is one of the best indulgences when it comes to sweets, but the raw egg and artificial sweeteners are not necessary to make this treat so tasty. Eatpastry's vegan and non-GMO cookie dough can be eaten straight out of the container or baked to perfection.
Flavors include Chocolate Chip, Chocoholic Chip, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip, Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip, and Gluten-Free Snickerdoodle. Excuse me while I go finish off a tub of this cookie dough and only feel slightly guilty about it.
Though this treat is considered a muffin since it's full of nutritious ingredients to jump start your day, it is also the perfect alternative to cake. Kodiakcakes' Minute Muffins only need water and a quick stir before being microwaved to give you a delicious, fluffy muffin in an instant.
The muffins are made with 100% whole grains, 6 grams of high-quality protein, non-GMO ingredients, and no artificial preservatives. Choose from Mountain Blueberry, Double Chocolate, Apple Cinnamon Oat, and Pumpkin Dark Chocolate.
There's no reason to "cut back" on dessert when you have these healthier alternatives. Satisfy your sweet or savory cravings with good quality, delicious food made with real ingredients.
