Thursday Treats 9.27.12

Posted Sep 27 2012 1:00am
It's almost Friday, which means your body is already physically prepared for a weekend. If you're still going to class or work on Friday and don't have the day off (like I do, ha!) perhaps you can treat yourself to a healthy dessert. This week's installation of Thursday Treats features some more healthified desserts by fellow FitFluential Ambassadors . Last week's post featured all of the indulgent chocolate recipes and this week...there really is no theme. That's not to say that this roundup is any less delicious. On the contrary, you will find recipes like cheesecake in a bowl and some coconut Paleo cookies. Did you cock your head in intrigue? You should have.

If you have any healthy dessert recipes because you have a raging sweet tooth, or are surrounded by those who have them, send me your recipes and they can be featured on this weekly post!

Which of these recipes will you make?


Clean Peanut Butter Bites

According to Brittany of Little b's healthy habits , this recipe was inspired by peanut butter cake bites, which ultimately sound amazing, but she took the initiative to change the ingredients and transform this dessert into something healthier. I mean, she does have a Pinterest board dedicated to cleaning up recipes.

This is a fun, bite-sized way to enjoy granola. Can you think of a more versatile snack than granola? You can eat it in so many different ways and if you're a fan of variety and all-around delicious things, this needs to be a recipe you try, thanks to Laura from Sprint 2 The Table .
Cheesecake in a Bowl

Okay, so it's not exactly a thick slice of cake, but Carissa of Colourful Palate has taken your late-night sweet cravings into consideration. Why do we like cheesecake? It's creamy and it's sweet. This version doesn't have nearly all the fat and has some protein, too!
Chocolate Bark with Almonds and Raisins

This is pretty much killing two birds with one stone. With the holidays coming up,  you can make this as a present and people will think you're super considerate and a genius, and in the same batch eat some and nobody will notice since it's bark! You can thank Elle of We Can Begin to Feed for this idea.
Chocolate Coconut Paleo Cookies

Danielle from Clean Food Creative Fitness has come up with a Paleo alternative for cookie-lovers. Though there is chocolate included, you can choose to omit this if you're strictly following a Paleo diet, or just have it 'cause you deserve a treat, right?
Kashi Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate Bars

This dessert uses Kashi cereal, and if you aren't drooling over this picture, we have some things to talk about. There are only 6 ingredients in this recipe and together will refrigeration this will probably only take you about 2 hours. Laura, aka Mommy Run Fast , is a genius.
