Lately I really have been trying to eat better but man it’s so hard with all the yummy treats around at holiday parties.  So I’m going to give myself a little break on Christmas and then jump right back into it hardcore in January.  I mean who doesn’t love some amazing, yummy, deserts to make over the holiday season.  I’m not really into creating my own recipes but I love to look at what other people create.  So here are 8 Yummy Easy Holiday Dessert  recipes I found to eat up this holiday season.

Raw Peppermint Patties

Holiday and Peppermint go together like Peanut butter and jelly and this recipe is even Gluten free, Dairy Free, Vegan and Paleo Friendly.  Check out this recipe over at thenutritionista they are made with Coconut Oil which has so many awesome benefits plus that added coconut flavor.  Bonus is there is no cooking!  Yay!

 

 

 

Dreamy Seven Layer Bar

Now how the heck can you go wrong with a recipe with Dreamy in the name?
