Toasted Pecan Dessert (for One)

Toasted Pecan Dessert (for One)

The other night after dinner, I was craving something sweet. Since I don't keep any pre-made sweets at home, I have to make dessert if I want dessert! So with only 4 ingredients, I came up with something simple that I'm going to share with you today.

The portion size is teeny tiny, but just enough to satisfy your taste buds.

What's awesome is that this dessert is high in fat and protein (so it'll fill you up) and it's cleanse-friendly (so you won't feel bloated or experience a sugar hangover afterward).

Enjoy!

Pumpkin Pie Pudding

Pumpkin Pie Pudding

This will hit the spot if you're looking for a small snack or dessert. Its smooth consistency reminds me of pumpkin pie filling (sans the cream, eggs, and sugar). The pumpkin is packed with beta carotene and fiber, while the sunflower seed butter (or almond butter) adds healthy fat and protein.

The prep is easy. All you need is a few basic pantry ingredients, a bowl and a spoon. The fanciest kitchen equipment you'll need are measuring spoons and a can opener!
