10 Health(ier) Homemade Treats for Kids

By Emily |

If your toddler is anything like mine, they could eat dessert morning, noon and night. I am thankful that my son is a good eater, not picky at all, but he definitely also has a sweet tooth.

Sometimes the first thing he asks for when he wakes up in the morning is candy, or cookies. Yeah, right! And then he gets upset when I say no!

We don’t eat a lot of dessert in our house. Mostly because I don’t have time to make dessert on top of three other meals a day. But, we definitely do enjoy sweet treats and recently I’ve been on the search for treats and dessert I can feed my family without feeling (so) guilty.

These sweet treats are healthier than most traditional desserts, with whole grains, unrefined sweeteners, and even a few surprise ingredients (beans!), so you can feel good about serving them to your family too.

Also, there are many families out there that deal with food allergies or food intolerance in their kiddos, and it can be hard to find yummy treats and desserts that fit their dietary requirements. Many of these recipes are  gluten and dairy free too.

And yes, most of these do contain chocolate. Because really, isn’t that what defines a sweet treat? (And maybe also because I’m seven months pregnant!)

Here are 10 Health(ier) Desserts for Your Family:
