Because refined sugar has such severe health consequences, I’m always looking for ways to satisfy that sweet craving with something healthier. Cue: healthy sweet potato brownies (can I get an amen?!). You would never know the base of this sweet treat is nutrient-rich sweet potato.
Dessert doesn’t have to be bad for you. Instead, get creative and find a new way to incorporate something healthy. If I need something sweet to satisfy me after dinner, I reach for one of these superfood chocolates.
Homemade fortune cookies let you be the fortuneteller for the night. If you’re up for a little experiment, try making them from scratch. They’re a bit finicky and much easier if you have a friend or sous chef to help. But if you just want to add some zazzle, buy your fortune cookies, then dip them in melted chocolate and pretty sprinkles. I won’t tell.
