7 Healthy and Delicious Desserts

Dieting. A word that many people use, but more than often don't stick to.

That's okay! Diets are made up of tasteless meals that you can eat in one bite. Now, who wants that?

Let's be real! You don't need to diet! You just need to eat healthy and in moderation. These 7 healthy dessert choices will have your taste buds dancing and you stomach satisfied!

1) Fig-Pecan Macaroons
Macaroons are always made with egg whites and no fat meaning they are a super healthy treat! This recipe includes intensely sweet dried figs so don't forget to remove the hard stems!

These macaroons include pecans, ground cinnamon, grated lemon rind, cream of tartar, salt, egg whites, powdered sugar, and dried Black Mission Figs.
