Dark Chocolate BrowniesDark chocolate brownies just got healthier with this rich and creamy version.Orange Cranberry SconesThis recipe was inspired by the orange cranberry scones they offer at Starbucks. They were one of my mom's favorite desserts there, until she found the recipe and was able to make them at home. She passed the recipe along to me and I was able to make it plant-based to enjoy. These scones are a great sweet treat because the whole batch only contains 7 teaspoons of sugar. That's almost less than ½ a teaspoon per scone, and that's a whole lot less than your average dessert. The glaze adds a little bit more sugar, but it is always optional.Chia PuddingChia seeds are well known for their high content of nutrients, omega-3 fatty acids, and fiber. With this attractive presentation you can provide a pretty nutritious and healthy dessert on special occasions or whenever you like.Surprise CookiesBecause these cookies are made without refined flour, they are much healthier than other recipes since they have much more fiber and a good amount of protein. However, since they are sweetened, it is recommended that diabetics consume them in very moderate amounts and as part of a program to eliminate insulin resistance.Coconut Layer CakeThere’s nothing more special than a layer cake.

The entire recipe can be made in a high-speed blender and it’s kind of magical to see the way the ingredients transform into something that tastes so distinctly like German chocolate cheesecake. I won’t deny that this is an incredibly rich cake, so make sure to be mindful of portion sizes!Spiced Pumpkin PieYes, vegan pumpkin pie.

Dare we say it tastes better, too?Citrus Cream BiscuitsUsually, biscuits tend to be a bit on the dry side, especially when they’re vegan, but these are lovely and tender, with the sweet-tartness of the lemon and orange peel shining through.
