Reintroduce Your Favourite Childhood Desserts With These Healthy Alternatives

When you were a kid, you probably didn't take a second thought before devouring that cupcake at a classmate's birthday party, or that ice cream sandwich on a hot summer day, the cream dripping down your hand, and you gladly licking up every last bit. A gooey toaster pastry was nothing to scoff at, and animal crackers? They were an anytime indulgence. But as an adult, you've probably put a big wall up against you and such desserts for their high calorie, refined flour, sugar, trans fats and long list of ingredients you can't make sense of. But as anyone living a well-balanced lifestyle can attest to, kicking the sweet treat habit only leads to secret binging. So, rather than deprave yourself of treats, how about redefine the ingredients you associate with them?
