Worried that you’ll gain weight because of your sugar cravings? Well, if you choose the right recipes for your desserts, you can enjoy your sugary delight without gaining any weight. Including physical activity in your lifestyle and eating clean are two important factors in maintaining your health in a good shape. By eating junk food and not exercising at all, you are buying a ticket that will take you straight to overweight and health issues. This is not a change that you have to make in a critical moment, but more like a choice, you make for your own sake. Obtaining the same delicious taste of junk food is not impossible if you are willing to put some effort into it. Since desserts are the ones that usually cause problems in one’s diet, here are some recipes that can help you keep your cravings in control.

Who doesn’t love pancakes?

Pancakes represent the perfect option for breakfast, for a quick dessert or a craving you have. The original recipe might include too many carbs for your diet, but no one said you can’t cook tasty low carb pancakes. Finding a pancake recipe that’s packed with protein or fiber is the right choice to keep yourself in shape. Ingredients such as oatmeal, cinnamon, and low fat cream cheese are recommended for such a meal. Usually, low carb pancakes tend to be flavorless and not rich in texture. This is the reason why many people avoid making them. In reality, if you use the right protein powder and tasty fruit or nuts, you’ll be amazed how delicious this dish can get. Try it once and you’ll fall in love with this recipe instead of the traditional, fatty one.

Chocolate chip blondies

You are a fan of dense blondies but you simply can’t eat them because of they are sugar bombs? How about a recipe that is sugar and gluten-free? Don’t be afraid that this blondie won’t be tasty. You will mix key ingredients to get the best possible taste out of this recipe. Even though it sounds impossible, eating chocolate chip blondies on a diet is now extremely accessible. If you’re not very good with cooking, this is the recipe you want to try first. You just have to put together all of your preferred ingredients (including some store-bought chocolate that’s also sugar-free) and put the mixture into the oven.  

Low carb skillet brownies

On the other hand, in case you prefer brownies over blondies, there is an option for it. Preparing a skillet brownie has never been easier, especially because you’ll make it low carb. This recipe includes no sugar at all – only tasty ingredients such as cocoa, nuts, peanut butter and vanilla. Get that dense and moist consistency, put it in your skillet and throw it in the oven for a while. If that’s your cheat day, you can add a scoop of ice cream next to it and enjoy the perfect dessert.
