Skinny Mini Fruit Tarts

Personally, a double chocolate ganache cake just isn’t appealing to me during the spring and summer. The thought of scarfing down a rich, gooey slice of chocolate cake when it’s 80°F out and I’m covered in a sheen of sweat doesn’t really make me warm and fuzzy inside. Well, it does, but not in the good…

Gluten Free Double Chocolate Cake Pops

Everybody loves cake pops. Whether they’re from Starbucks, a cupcake shop, even homemade! Unfortunately, not everyone can afford to eat them by the dozen and stay as thin as a rail. If you happen to have a cake pop maker, or have read the ingredients in a cake pop recipe, you can probably guess why.…

Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Oats

A HUGE, warm oatmeal raisin cookie in a bowl. For breakfast. That’s basically what these oats are, in a nutshell! With all the main ingredients of oatmeal raisin cookies (Ie. oats, vanilla extract, cinnamon, raisins), this oatmeal could definitely be mistaken for the actual cookie! And with the addition of flax seeds and banana, they’re just as sweet yet…

Tropical “Green” Smoothie

For the next week or two, Skinny Sweet Treats might be a little slack. No worries, I’m not giving up on this blog or anything (I’m too in love with sweets to ever do that!), but honestly… I’m not allowed to be on my laptop/phone for more than 10 minutes at the moment. Basically: I have…

Heavenly Coconut Cupcakes

I love food suggestions. Really, I do!

The Ultimate Fudgy Brownies

For the past two weeks, I’ve seriously been craving all things chocolate. Chocolate ice cream, chocolate frozen yogurt, chocolate chip cookies, and definitely chocolate brownies. And this time, a batch of Butterscotch Black Bean Brownies was not gonna cut it. So, lo and behold, I decided to create a recipe for a batch of Ultimate Fudgy Brownies. People are usually one…

Banana Coconut Cream Pie Ice Cream

I’m going to be honest here. It takes all my will power to not eat ice cream every night. Well, all my will power and the fact that it takes 30 hours for my ice cream maker to freeze. So, on those unfortunate nights when I’m forced to go without ice cream… I either have to…
