Desserts are enjoyed by almost everyone. It’s hard to resist the charm of something sweet. However, when you’re on a healthy diet, resisting cravings for desserts somehow becomes even more difficult. Every time someone opens a packet of cookies or offers you a plateful of brownies, you’re reminded of your diet goals, but then it’s next to impossible to not reach out for these goodies. But the guilt that follows is even harder to deal with. The moment you have a piece of that brownie or that chocolate-chip cookie, your mind starts doing quick calculations about how many calories you have overshot your daily calorie-budget by. Not to mention, all that pressure about spending extra time at the gym to burn those calories off! But all this won’t happen if your desserts are rich in nutrition and not just empty calories.
Guilt-free desserts are big business, with multiple brands launching their own lines of ‘low-calorie’ and ‘healthy’ sweets and desserts. But these may inevitably contain a lot of unwanted and unhealthy ingredients like preservatives, artificial sweeteners etc. If you want to enjoy your desserts in a 100 per cent guilt-free way, it’s best to make them at home and store them for consumption for subsequent weeks. We have one such recipe of a guilt-free dessert for you- pumpkin oats cake
