More Goodness, Less Guilt Desserts

There’s nothing wrong with indulging in sweet treats every now and then, but too much sugar definitely has its downside. So how do you satisfy your sweet tooth while staying healthy at the same time? It’s a problem many dessert makers have tried to solve using healthier alternatives to sugar or flour.

A common misconception is that healthy desserts lack flavor. But by using quality ingredients, having the right recipe, and a can-do attitude sprinkled with creativity, you can still have healthy and amazingly good desserts!

We combed our archives for recipes you can try using Maya Think Heart Whole Wheat Flour, Pancake Mix, and Carrot Cake Mix, which have a whole lot of health benefits. So show your family and friends some extra love by feeding them food that is as healthy as it is delicious!

#1 Whole Wheat Fruity Eclairs

Éclairs are almost impossible to turn down. Made from choux dough and filled with creamy goodness, this pastry is usually topped with decadent chocolate icing. Our version uses healthy alternatives like whole wheat flour, stevia, nondairy nut milk, and fresh fruits. They’re not only delicious, but they also add color to any table.


#2 Whole Wheat Pineapple Carrot Walnut Cake

Who doesn’t love a good carrot cake? We take it up a notch with a recipe that’s delicious and easy to make using Maya’s Whole Wheat Carrot Cake Mix. Add some fresh pineapple for a unique twist, plus a healthy helping of walnuts for a dose of antioxidants. And it wouldn’t be complete without layers of cream cheese!


#3 Fiber-rich Pumpkin Muffins

One of our favorite muffin recipes, it’s chock-full of healthy stuff like oat bran, pumpkin, pecans, and spices. Use skim milk as a healthier substitute to full cream and maple syrup for the sugar glaze. The fiber keeps your digestive system in tip-top shape, so eat well to feel well!


#4 Whole Wheat Chiffon Cake
