Healthy Thanksgiving Desserts ~ Cupcakes, Crisps, and Pie Of Course!

By Tone It Up on

Hi hi cutie pie! Thanksgiving is full of sweetness in so many ways ~ spending time with loved ones, giving back, expressing gratitude, and of course…the amazing desserts!

We love all the classics of course, but we also like to switch it up with some fresh TIU approved sweets. These are some of our all-time favorite healthy Thanksgiving desserts. They’re all made with whole, unprocessed foods and lower in sugar than the usual treats. Plus, they’re SO delicious ~ they are always a hit with the fam! 

They’re simple to prepare, and we’re breaking it down step by step so it’s as easy as, well, pie 😉
