No-bake treats for the win! These healthy options will help you make it through the days you need a nourishing dessert, but don’t feel like baking.
Even when it’s not too hot to turn on the oven, I’m all about the no-bake treats. Baked goodies can be comforting, but sometimes you just need a nice bowl of ice cream, a milkshake, or some chia seed pudding for a treat!
So don’t try and tell yourself you don’t need to peruse these amazing recipes. We all know you do.
These delicious treats are healthy (for the most part) and come in a variety of diets. There’s a little paleo, a little keto, a little vegan/vegetarian, and they’re all 100% gluten-free!
