Sweet and Healthy Recipes for Appetizers, Snacks, & Dessert
Strawberry Cheesecake Parfaits
This easy, no-bake snack offers an appetite-satisfying dose of protein in a creamy dessert package. Let the kids help assemble it while they still have a love of all things sweet. Switch out the berries with their other favorite fruits. If you only need one serving for you, don’t worry. It’s easy to scale this recipe up or down.
Greek yogurt and milk are the secret ingredients to keeping this quick-bread super moist. Though you can make the quick bread without its simple glaze, you know you can’t go without it. Using rolled oats provides extra fiber (a great excuse for anyone who asks how you can eat sweet foods so early in the day) and gives the bread the perfect texture. You can swap whole wheat flour if desired. The recipe easily makes 12 muffins for a quick on-the-run breakfast or midday snack. Make ahead and freeze for those busy mornings or weekends.
Take your pancake game to a whole new level with these mini Dutch Babies filled with seasonal fresh fruit and dusted with a touch of powdered sugar. Baking them in a muffin tin makes them perfect for entertaining larger groups or a brunch buffet, but really, this will be your go-to snack for yourself and the few people you allow to touch your sweet snacks.
