None of These Dessert Recipes Have Any Sugar (You're Welcome)

If you're like us, when the sugar cravings hit, they hit hard. While it’s easy to give in to them and grab a cookie from the pantry, we’ve been warned by nutritionists like Isabel Smith, MS, RD, and CDN, of the low nutritional value and high amount of calories found in sugar. Therefore, we try our best to stave off these urges. But what if we told you that you didn’t have to resist your sweet tooth any longer? Thanks to Laurel Gallucci, founder of Sweet Laurel bakery, you can now indulge your cravings with these refined sugar–free dessert recipes that taste just as good as the real thing, but with more nutritional value.

Gallucci’s concoctions can be summed up as wholesome, healthful, and extremely delicious. And if you’ve ever had the privilege of tasting one of her cakes, you know exactly what we’re talking about. However, for those of you who haven’t, she shared a few of her easy, healthy recipes, all of which are free of refined sugar, gluten, and dairy.

From an Instagram-worthy chocolate cake to delectable strawberry waffles, both of which are made with maple syrup (a healthy sugar alternative that Smith says has 54 antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties), Gallucci has provided us with easy-to-follow recipes so that you too can taste the deliciousness that is Sweet Laurel.
