Well, my turkeys are brining in the fridge as we speak and I’m right on schedule with my Thanksgiving feast preparation. But, I thought I’d take a break to share some desserts with you (the next thing on my list). Festive desserts can push us over the edge, packed with butter, oil, fat and sugar. So why not make them healthier and just as enjoyable? Here are some of my favorite meal finishers and snacks for this pumpkin and spice time of year.
No messing around, here’s the sweetness.
Pumpkin Cream Cake Roll like a pumpkin cream cheese bar all rolled and swirled into one
Pumpkin Pie with Almond Crust gluten & dairy free
Pumpkin Cake Cookies portable packages of pumpkin goodness – top with frosting or dark chocolate drizzle
Chocolate Fudge Brownies Squares (with sweet potato) rich and chocolatey – gluten & dairy free
Pumpkin & Cranberry Biscotti crunchy & sweet dipper for coffee or tea
Mini Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins bite size and studded with chocolate
Pumpkin-Orange Custards creamy delicious individual custards – serve with an assortment of toppings
Apple & Cranberry Turnovers made with phyllo dough
Apple Pie Parfait super nutritious dessert, snack or breakfast
Easy Berry Crisp use any fruit like apples (I add a little applesauce too) for a healthier version of apple crisp
Pumpkin Bread with Orange-Cinnamon Honey Butter one of my most searched and pinned recipes this season
Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving!
