20 Thanksgiving Treats to Share (or not to share!)

Who here is a “make everything the morning of” person when it comes to Thanksgiving?

I can tell you with 100% certainty that I am!

You would think that someone with a healthy food blog, who has to budget her time accordingly in order to publish three new recipes a week, would have better planning skills when it comes to America’s biggest foodie day of the year. Alas, that is the farthest from the case.

Instead, I choose to push off all the baking, pie making, and turkey basting until the day of!

After all, what fun is Thanksgiving if you didn’t spend eight hours the morning of racing against the clock to bake the pies, make the sweet potato casserole, and race to the store for dinner rolls before dinner begins at 4PM?

If you’re also like me and end up frantically searching the web for a dessert to bring to Thanksgiving dinner the morning of, then allow me to alleviate a bit of your stress — and provide 20 delicious, deceivingly healthy Thanksgiving recipes to truly be thankful for!

While most of these are perfect to share with family and friends, I must admit: a few of them are single serving. Aka. perfect for the day-after Thanksgiving, when you finally have a moment to sit down, take a breath, and reward yourself for getting all the dishes on the table just in time.

Because while Thanksgiving is a wonderful holiday, sometimes enjoying a single-serving pumpkin pie with a nice steaming cup of coffee is just as nice.
