16 Healthy Dessert Recipes

Every now and then, you deserve a treat – especially when you are training hard in your running. You can’t eat a 100% “perfect” or “healthy” diet – nor should you. Treating yourself, whether it is to desert or a glass of wine, provides mental and physical benefits. 

That said, especially when you are training for a race and focusing on high-quality nutrition, you don’t want to negate all of your hard work by indulging every day. These healthy treats compromise between the indulgent taste of desserts and sweets without being too rich, especially when you are preparing for a goal race and saving those truly decadent foods as a post-race indulgence.

  1. Yum!!! I pinned this and can’t wait to try some of these. I always need a sweet treat after dinner. My fav healthier dessert to make at home are caramel chocolate balls that are paleo. In a food processor you mix about 10 ounces of medjool dates, a scoop of chocolate protein powder, 1-2 tablespoons of almond butter and a half cup of unsweetened coconut. Roll into balls, refrigerate and try not to eat too many in one sitting! They kind of taste like Girl Scout Samoas. xoxo
