Over the weekend, there's nothing better than baking up some tasty treats — especially when they've been given a healthy twist. Whether you love cookies, brownies, or muffins, the latest batch of recipes from the FitSugar Healthy Recipe community group will definitely satisfy a sweet tooth!
No-Bake Trail Mix Cookies
OK, this recipe is a total win, because you don't even have to turn on the oven — perfect for those hot Summer days! Made from only five ingredients, these gluten-free, vegan cookies contain quinoa, making them a protein powerhouse.
Dark Chocolate Brownies
These might not be low-cal, but they are rich in antioxidants and fiber and contain much less sugar and fat than you'd find in a traditional brownie recipe. There's also black beans hidden in them — which you won't even taste! — so let's hear it for the extra protein boost.
Wait — there's more! Check out some delicious-tasting coconut muffins and Paleo banana bread after the break!
Coconut Pineapple Date Muffins
No need for refined sugars when you have the natural sweetness of pineapple and dates. This recipe also skips out on butter, opting for coconut oil instead.
Make like a caveman and enjoy a slice of this Paleo banana bread. In this recipe, you'll find ingredients like almond flour, coconut oil, and, of course, bananas!
