10 low-sugar & sugar-free desserts & treats

I have a sweet tooth, which is a huge problem!  But I have really been trying to cut down on sugar recently. It is hard, and sometimes I am literally crawling the walls wanting chocolate, but I know I just have to ride the wave and not have it – once I get over the wave I don’t want it anymore and I have forgotten about it.  But sometimes you just want a treat, or you want dessert, and a high sugar content is always an issue with those types of recipes.   But here are 10 recipes for treats and desserts that are low or sugar free, and so delicious!


10 low sugar & sugar free desserts & treats



Healthy Buckeye Balls 

This recipe from Desserts With Benefits, makes delicious chocolate peanut butter balls that are sugar free, low Carb, high protein and gluten free.  I first had Buckeyes several years ago when a neighbor made them for Christmas and brought some round to us. I couldn’t believe I hadn’t discovered these absolutely delicious treats before then!  They are just so good, and I am so excited that there is a healthier recipe that actually tastes really good!

Lemon Drop Cookies

Lemon drop cookies are just the perfect cookie to have with a cup of tea!
