Something that you find easy to make and everyone in your family loves. I make a lot of things with oats like breakfast cakes that we eat for dessert. They have less sugar and more nutrients. I let them put cool whip on top and they love it. My galettes are big successes here too and super easy.

We often like fruit salad for dessert - that is pretty easy to whip up. Brownies are another favorite although of course not nearly as healthy! Sometimes we will just have frozen yogurt. We only do dessert 2-3 times per week.

I tweak my flax bread recipe to make it into cake by adding more sweetener and sweet things instead of savoury.
- dark chocolate chips and ginger
- lemon zest and raisins
- mincemeat to make "Christmas cake"
- flaked almonds and mixed dried fruit
- frozen blueberries

I also make a pumpkin slice from rice flour, canned pumpkin, mashed banana and dried fruit, nuts and seeds. That's more for winter because it's quite a space-filler!

We eat a lot of fresh fruit and soy yoghurt in the summer.

I add lots of bananas or pumpkin to different cake/bread things instead of the oil too. I hate all that grease in the desserts. Sometimes though, a decadent dessert needs to have all the fat and bad things in life to be just that, decadent! LOL

strawberry shortcake with angel food cake and homemade whipped cream - the kids like it much more than cool whip because its not as sweet. If its a super special occasion then I use pound cake

Funny you mention home made whipped cream Marta! Just yesterday I told Mia I didn't want to have home made whipped cream in the house because I'm completely weak to it and I can't be trusted around it LOL I should make I t for them though and freeze it.

I have one for summer that I love. . . because I love lemons! Whipped Lemon Pie. . . it's really good. . .perfect for a hot day. . . and really lemony!!

1 Pkg (8 oz) Cream Cheese softened
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
1 8oz container of frozen Cool Whip (or whipped topping)
3/4 cup Can Frozen Lemonade thawed
Graham cracker pie crust - 9 inch

Beat the cream cheese and condensed milk until smooth, beat in the lemonade, fold in the whipped cream, pour into crust and refrigerate. The whipped cream is the key - the more you add the lighter the lemon taste so you can just keep adding until you get the level of lemon you want. :-) It makes a really high fluffy pie. . . if you have too much for the pie crust I just put it in small dessert dishes.

some go to desserts are homemade cookies, brownies or chocolate cake. In the summer though it's strawberry shortcake, ice cream or homemade ice cream (although that seems to be a treat as it can get costly)

It's hard to make palatable, pretty desserts without dairy, wheat or sugar.

It's not a dessert without sugar. Even fruit has sugar in it.

Peach Crisp. So easy to make.

1 large jar of peaches.

1 bag of granola.

1 tablespoon of cinnamon.

Heat oven to 425 degrees. Get large baking dish. Spray with Canola oil or Pam. Fill with peaches. Place granola on top, sprinkle cinnamon on top. Bake for 20 minutes.

You can serve it with ice cream.

That sounds yummy too Kathleen!

Lemon is so good. I love those powdered-sugar-on-top lemon bars. I've seen a version of angel food cake and lemon pie filling on Pinterest.

Well actually I've never tasted it so I don't know if it's a version of the lemon bars but sounds good! My mom used to make homemade lemon meringue pie.

Is it 2 cans of filling I think it said? What kind of pan? My mom used to put a lemon drop in her tea. I just remembered that.

I made it both with one and two cans. I liked the one with two cans, Greg with just one. The one with just one comes out a bit more spongy. Still great though. I use a 10 x 13 for it.
