'Tis the season for delicious, sweet treats! But if you're looking to indulge in something festive without ruining your diet, look no further. These healthy holiday desserts will have your taste buds singing with joy—without any of the guilt.

What's one of the best things about the holiday season? The desserts, of course! But if you're trying to watch your waistline, traditional desserts might not be the best option. This year, why not try some healthy dessert recipes that are just as tasty as your old favorites? Healthy desserts can be a great way to cut down on calories during the holiday season, while still enjoying your favorite treats. By choosing dishes that are low in sugar and fat, you can indulge without feeling guilty.


Let’s check out some holiday desserts that are healthy AND taste just as good as the original it’s based on!


Warm up your ovens and ready your taste buds – it's time for some healthy holiday desserts!

1. Coconut Rice Pudding

Traditional rice pudding has a lot of sugar, dairy, and eggs. I know because it was my absolute favourite snack/dessert when I was growing up. Check out page 20 of the Healthy & Warm Cookbook for a simple rice pudding recipe that you can make in your pressure cooker.  If you don't have a pressure cooker, you can make this on the stove in about 30 minutes using the same directions on the rice package to cook your pudding; or throw it all into a slow cooker for 4 hours on low and smell the loveliness for hours throughout the house!


2. Baked Apples

This one is easy AND delicious. It's so much tastier and healthier than an apple crisp and toppings can be customized for each person in the family! Grab page 21 of the Healthy & Warm Cookbook for this amazing dessert!


3. Gluten-Free Molton Lava Cakes

Found on page 22 of the Healthy & Warm Cookbook, this one does not disappoint! All you need is a slow cooker and you can make this upside-down lava cake for up to 6 people! I love that it's gluten-free, so I don't have to worry about the gluten upsetting my digestive system and I can actually FEEL GOOD eating this!

4. Gluten-Free Brownies

A simple, go-to dessert that you can't go wrong with! Brownies are a hit with the kids and are extra fun when topped with a scoop of banana nice cream! And they're even more exciting when you can make them in your air fryer! Head over to page 17 of these Healthy Air Fryer Recipes to grab your recipe!


5. Air-Fryer Carmalized Bananas

I don't know about you, but this simple dessert has become a bit of an addiction for me! I love pairing it with a small dollop of vanilla, plant-based yogurt on the side and topping it with toasted walnuts.  Find it on page 18 of the Healthy Air Fryer Recipes and give it a try! It only takes 7 minutes!


6. No-Bake Energy Cookies or Balls**

You can't go wrong with a no-bake cookie recipe, and when they're designed with both taste and fuel in mind, they make THE PERFECT guilt-free dessert or snack for any time of the holidays! So go ahead and eat a few - you'll feel great for doing so!  This Complete Recipes book is LOADED, but for some particularly festive options, try my favourites (just squish them flat to look like a cookie, or roll them in a ball like the recipe instructions say):
