You don’t have to neglect your sweet tooth this summer thanks to these delicious plant-based summer desserts…the best part is, they are all surprisingly healthy! 

Almond butter bananas

Are you looking for something quick, easy, and healthy? Then whip up some almond butter bananas! All you need to do is slice a banana into thick coin-like slices and put some of your favorite almond butter in-between. You can add raisins, and for an extra refreshing dessert, use frozen bananas! 

If you’ve got a little extra time and want to use up your ripe bananas, try this 2-ingredient banana almond butter ice cream recipe from “Sassy Spoon” (just skip the chocolate chip and marshmallow toppings to keep it plant-based). 

Peanut butter oatmeal cookies

Repeat after me: peanut butter, banana, and oats. Those are the three ingredients you need to make healthy peanut butter oatmeal cookies! If you have a sweet tooth, you can add ingredients like raisins, vegan chocolate chips, maple syrup, or nuts! Pair cookies with a glass of almond milk and you’ve got yourself an epic combo.

This recipe for chewy peanut butter oatmeal cookies from “The Simple Green” is one of our faves!

Remember those cookies I was working on for ages? Well, they’re finally ready! I bring you a simpler and healthier treat for you and/or your little ones…these chewy peanut butter oatmeal cookies are low in refined sugar, contain no refined oils, and are full of great peanut-y flavour. They’re chewy on the inside with a lovely crunch around the edge…and best enjoyed with a glass of cold almond milk (obviously)!
