14. Cranberry Apricot Fruit Cake

This recipe pairs morsels of fruity goodness with a decadent moist cake. The cake contains a little bit of lemon zest, almond extract, and cinnamon. It’s sweetened with a combination of maple syrup and molasses. The resulting flavor is rich, complex, and oh so satisfying!

15. No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake

Ready-made pie crusts might be convenient, but they contain cheap ingredients and preservatives that wreck havoc on your body. Instead our pie crust uses whole almonds, old-fashioned oats, coconut oil, and a hint of dark chocolate. The filling is a creamy, decadent combination of cream cheese, coconut milk, and natural peanut butter.

16. Caramel Pumpkin Spice Popcorn

Imagine all the deliciousness of caramel popcorn, but made without heavily processed sugar. We pop the popcorn using heart-healthy coconut oil instead of refined heavily processed vegetable oil. Then, we sweeten the popcorn with maple syrup and coconut sugar. Add a little pumpkin spice and you have a festive, clean-eating treat!

17. Oat Date Bars

These sweet fruit bars are perfect as a healthy dessert or as an on-the-go snack. Medjool dates are rich in vitamins and provide a significant amount of fiber. Not to mention, they’re high in natural sugars, which gives these bars and indulgently sweet taste. Combined with cinnamon, coconut oil, and vanilla, these date taste better than most cakes!

18. Caramel Apple Bread Pudding

We made this skinny dessert by eliminating processed sugars and sweetening with only applesauce and molasses. Additionally, using almond milk instead of regular dairy eliminates unnecessary fats and adds a variety of vitamins and minerals. With cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, and fresh apple slices, this bread pudding is perfect for satisfying your sweet tooth without wrecking your diet.

19. Superfood Chocolate Bark

A clean treat made for chocolate lovers! Made with silky dark chocolate, this bark has pieces of almonds, dried blueberries, and dried cranberries. It’s a berry chocolate extravaganza that perfectly mixes creamy and crunchy.

20. Olive Oil Honey Banana Bread

Most desserts stay clear of olive oil, but this recipe proves just how versatile the ingredient can be. The olive oil flavor isn’t dominant, yet it adds a complexity that’s exhilarating. The use of olive oil also makes this banana bread extra moist. The texture is soft and sweet without being overwhelming. Add some chopped walnuts or dark chocolate chips and you’re good to go!
