Get the dessert recipes here on Healthy Seasonal Recipes richt here. Including maple apple crisp, our lighter carrot cake, maple cookies and brownies and more!

For the holidays this Gingerbread Sheet Cake is divine as is our recipe for Peppermint Pattie Cheesecake. These recipes are lighter and healthier than many dessert recipes you’ll find because often they include less sugar and saturated fat and they include whole grains as well.

We love to substitute maple syrup in for refined sugars and use whole-grain flours and nut flours instead of refined white flour when possible without sacrificing taste and delicious flavor!
