Healthy Holiday Desserts: Link Roundup!

It's time for making holiday desserts! Hooray! But special desserts don't have to be terrible for you. I'm going to be trying out some healthy dessert options this year in an attempt to lessen the overall end-of-December junk food consumption. As I'm pretty much a Pinterest junkie, I have no shortage of ideas. Here are some recipes to get you started!

         I just tried this one the other day, and it's amazing! 
           Plus, its got none of the eggs or dairy of regular nog.

                                                            Healthy Eatmore Fudge Squares
                                                       These frozen, but creamy squares are
                                                 made with ingredients like banana, nuts, and
                                                dates. This is a yummy dessert that won't leave
                                                                      you feeling guilty.

                                                         Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip
                                                The base of this ingenious cookie dough dip is
                                                  made with chickpeas! This would be great
                                                  served at a party with graham crackers for

                                                                  Cinnamon Glazed Popcorn
                                                      Flavored popcorn around the holidays is
                                                     nothing new, but this flavorful recipe keeps
                                                      the tradition while taking the health factor
                                                                       up a few notches.

                                                            Chocolate Covered Date Cups
                                             Just imagine biting into one of these babies. Mmm.

                                                               Sweet & Nutty Trail Mix
                                                     Trail mix is great to have handy so you
                                                 don't find yourself munching on not-so-great
                                                 alternatives. It's also  great to take along on
                                                   car rides if you'll be doing any traveling
                                                                     over the holiday.

                                                       Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites
                                                    Sweetened with honey and made with a
                                                 chickpea base, these cookie bites will keep
                                                    you happy without giving you all the fat,
                                                       sugar, and carbs of regular cookies.

                                                                     Happy cooking!
