A little dessert flashback

Happy Friday Friends!
Another week has flown by.  Things have been a little quiet over here in my corner.  Been working through some details with my health, and that has taken top priority next to my wonderful husband and job.  I feel pretty out of the loop and I hope to catch up more with all my lovely friends soon!

I have been on a pretty restrictive eating plan for a few weeks to eliminate some health issues I have been dealing with. Until things are resolved a bit more, I am not really able to eat any sweets.  Since we have a dessert theme this week I thought I would bring you some of my favorite desserts from 2016!

Today I am linking up with Farrah from Fairyburger, Annmarie from the Fit Foodie Mama, and Jess from Hello to Fit for a dessert themed week!
Sometimes a little dessert pick me up in the middle of the day is needed.  That is when I turn to my energizer smoothie or my baked apple smoothie!

At other times I am craving a warm fruity dessert and I pull out some ingredients to make a crisp.  Most commonly I make apple, but lately, my pear crisp has been my go-to!
Another dessert I love is a recipe that I used from the lovely Annmarie at Fit Foodie Mama! I actually have some sweet potatoes in the fridge right now I need to use this weekend and I bet this amazing sweet potato blondie recipe will be made for my friends & hubs!
You may remember the amazing Sweets in the Raw cookbook I posted about over the summer that was written by my lovely sweatpink sister, Laura Marquis!
I am still in love with everything in this cookbook, and love experimenting with the recipes!

When I am able to eat grains again I will be making this delicious cranberry quinoa cake! So easy and makes a yummy dessert, especially in the cooler winter months!
And if you are all about a warm drink dessert, you have to check out my peppermint protein hot chocolate!

Well that’s a wrap my friends.  I will be filling y’all in more soon on all that has been going on the past few weeks.

Make sure you check out all the amazing ladies and their awesome mouthwatering recipes!!

    The baked apple smoothie looks awesome. Hope the eliminations give you some answers and you’re feeling better soon!

    I hope everything’s okay! <3! All those desserts look awesome! I need to go get some apples so I can make that smoothie! 😛 I'm running low on fruit again!

    I LOVE my sweets and desserts which is why I have a healthy cookie dough in the fridge, made my girls healthy cookie dough filled muffins, and while I’m eating chocolate as I type. SHHH!
