Wheat. Gluten. Sugar. Dairy. Trans fats. Common ingredients on dessert plates around America this holiday season.

But they’re the best part of anyone’s meal, and probably your favorite as well! So instead of skipping it, let’s make it better!

In this last entry in WellnessFX’s Holiday Recipe Series you’ll find four dessert recipes that are healthy and wholesome. What better way to wrap up the season?

Of course, if you’re just joining us, you’ll want to check out the other recipes you’ve been missing:

Our first recipe takes minimalist to the extreme! As we’ve learned from Ashley Tudor, author of Sweet Potato Power, sweet potatoes are an amazing food. Sadly, it’s usually buried in sugar and overly processed ingredients during the holidays to make the notorious and family favorite: sweet potato pie. But sweet potatoes are already delicious enough that this is all unneeded! Which is why we bring you the following from Life As A Dreger.Here’s another popular holiday pie with a healthy centerpiece – if handled right. Ani’s Raw Food Kitchen has a plethora of baked treats . . . without the baking part! Enjoy the benefits of raw food and awesome taste with this pecan pie.Eggnog is already mostly paleo, but it’s hard to know exactly what’s in something unless you make it yourself. If you’re trying to live like a caveman, utilize this recipe to make sure you do it right! Credit to CrossFit Zone.
Sweet raisins, malty carob, and rich walnuts are ground together to make a delicious, dark, sweet cookie. Packed with antioxidants, vitamin E, and EFAs, these cookies keep you trim and your skin radiant. – Ani’s Raw Food Desserts

    Reblogged this on What Do You Mean I Can't Eat Red Vines? and commented:
    I’m sad that they don’t list the recipe for those amazing-looking crepes or cannolis with the strawberries and chocolate sprinkles, but the rest of these sound good too!
