11 lower-sugar holiday desserts

Halloween through December 31st tends to leave us feeling full of sugar and stuck in a permanent sugar coma haze. This year, we want to help combat that sugar-filled state with 11 Lower-Sugar Holiday Desserts.

Lower sugar means something different to everyone.

To us, it means less added sugars and of those added sugars, using natural sugars (agave, coconut sugar, honey, maple, molasses, and date) whenever possible.

We hope you enjoy these 11 ideas as much as we have enjoyed testing them out for you!
