This is slowly becoming my favorite day of the week. Not only is it my last day of classes but I also get to exhibit some mouthwatering recipes from the FitFluential community. Whether you watched the Presidential debates and got angry, or watched them and got inspired, or forgot slash didn't really care, there are always treats to be had! I've said this 5 trillion (get it?) times and I'll keep saying it again: dessert it important to me. I'm sorry, I hate that it is, but it is. If it isn't dessert, it's having a treat for myself. I'm so glad I'm actually getting FitFluential Ambassadors sending me recipes because it reassures me that you can be fit and active, and still enjoy things like dessert just in a smarter and healthier way.
What's your favorite way of making a dessert healthy?
If this isn't making you want afternoon tea to start right now, I don't know what will. The fact that you're ingesting vegetables with a snack riddled with cacao nibs is enough to make me want to live off of this forever. Thanks, Sylvia, from Frolic Through Life , for this recipe!
Can you think of a more warming dessert than a crumble? Tamara of FitKnitChick has got this for you. Apples and blackberries already sound like the fruits you want to consume right now, but tossing in oats just screams autumn. Best part is it's sugar-free and the cinnamon will make you wanna sit by a fireplace all night.
The minute you make this you've officially welcomed fall into your home. Congratulations. Just saying the name of this snack already brings about waves of autumn. Kasey of Well of Health makes this apple butter using agave nectar and marshmallow fluff for sweetness and texture, yum! There's also a maple honey frosting...
Appropriate responses to this dessert include "WHAT?!" and "HOW?!" And twins, Michelle and Lori of Purely Twins , answer those questions: it's a baked vegan chocolate mint cake, and it's got protein powder, coconut sugar, and some mesquite. Yes, making these now is the correct reaction to these answers.
Where have these been my whole life? Monica of Moni Meals has a sweet-cravings recipe for those who want instant gratification. This is such a great recipe and really simple to execute. It's really, in all honesty, so fool-proof that I will make these tomorrow.
Try as you might you cannot escape pumpkin during the fall. These aren't your regular pumpkin cream cheese muffins or anything, though, they're the muffin version of a trail mix. Janice of Fitness Cheerleader used a half cup of trail mix folded into the pumpkin muffin batter. Mmmm.
