Healthy Dessert and Treat Recipe Roundup- Sweetened By Fruit Only- Most Paleo and Vegan!



I love desserts. In fact, they're some of my favorite types of foods, which is a big part of why I have an issue with the concept of SWYPO- the banning of healthy recreations of junky foods. By having a large variety of healthy dessert recipes to choose from, I am not tempted by unhealthy desserts, even though I used to be addicted to them.

My friend, Julie, is doing a sugar detox, and is off all added sweeteners, other than fruit and fruit based sweeteners, and was looking for ideas for desserts that fit those requirements, so she doesn't break and go back to eating sugar. She inspired me to compile this list of dessert recipes, all sweetened with fruit only, no white sugar or coconut sugar or honey or jaggery or stevia or fake sugars- either naturally sweet recipes, or sweetened with dates or date syrup, or apple juice concentrate. And all delicious!

These recipes are all gluten free, and the vast majority are also Paleo and vegan. I've marked which is which, so you only need to open the recipes that are relevant to you. (I am pretty sure all the recipes marked Paleo are also GAPS legal, and most are SCD legal too.)

Hope you enjoy these deliciously tasty treats!
