Celebrate National Dessert Day with Honey Dessert Recipes

Today we celebrate National Dessert Day, and with it, a plethora of honey dessert recipes. Since National Dessert Day is in October we picked our favorite fall-inspired treats so as to not overwhelm anyone. Using honey to sweeten your food is healthier than using processed cane sugar since it has a lower glycemic index and more nutrients. Honey also doesn’t overpower the other ingredients in your recipes, making it the perfect addition to your kitchen, even baking with honey is preferable to using sugar.

Learn how to make honey poached pears and impress your guests with very little fuss with the added bonus of getting in one daily serving of fruit.

These healthy carrot cake bars are loved by kids of every age. I remember first being introduced to the concept of carrot cake as a kid, the whole idea of vegetables in the cake just didn’t go together. Then I tried it. How could I not love the carrot cake of the 1980s, loaded with gluten, hydrogenated oil and sugar, lots and lots of sugar?

Healthy Carrot Cake Bars

There are lots of ways to bake with carrots these days but the good news is these healthy carrot cake bars contain honey as an alternative to sugar, and overall, contain less sugar and a healthier oil than most carrot cakes.
