Our Favorite Diet-Friendly Spring Dessert Recipes

How many of you gave up dessert recipes for Lent? Maybe you were hoping to torture yourself slightly by clicking on this sure-to-be drool-worthy post and, while we hate to disappoint you, we're happy to tell you that spring recipes, while decadent, don't have to break your diet.

We've rounded up a few of our favorites. Get ready to fall in love (while staying on your diet!).

Chewy Chocolate Cherry Cookies

Surprise! This cookie comes with friends. We've gathered 15 100-calorie or less chocolate desserts for your browsing happiness. From meringues to truffles to crisps, these chocolate recipes are sure to satisfy your sweet tooth while leaving your waistline just as it is.

Chocolate-Dipped Banana Bites

Eat dessert and lose weight by choosing these sweet options from The CarbLovers Diet  to help curb your appetite and keep you looking slim. We suggest starting with already-sweet bananas and getting your fondue on. We love that the recipe calls for semi-sweet chocolate chips, but you may want to experiment with dark chocolate, too. For the antioxidants, of course...

 

Peanut Butter Cookies

These cookies will remind you of the peanut butter cookies your mom used to make you when you were a kid, but these have only 5 grams of carbohydrate per cookie. Get inspired with this cookie (and its friends!) by checking out our Diabetic Desserts.

While we love to splurge, we also like to keep an eye on our calories and general health. What dessert recipes do you use when you want to indulge while still staying on your diet?
