Dessert Doesn't Have to Be Dangerous

Sunday is sweet and a great day for treats. It doesn't mean you have to blow any diet you're on or load up on processed carbs or sugar. Dessert doesn't have to be dangerous. In fact, the following recipes include ingredients that are good for you. Dates, chia seeds, cacao, coconuts, and almonds are full of vitamins and nutrients. 

For example, Chia seeds have fiber, protein, calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus. They also contain a decent amount of Zinc, Vitamin B3 (Niacin), Potassium, Vitamin B1 (Thiamine) and Vitamin B2.

So if you're looking for deliciousness wrapped in goodness, look no further!
