This dessert is made with ingredients that actively work to keep inflammation away. The starring ingredient is turmeric, one of the most powerful anti-inflammatory spices in the pantry. It's combined with coconut flour, cinnamon, almond butter, maple syrup, and chocolate chips to make a batch of no-bake bars.
These apricot lemon bars are yet another anti-inflammatory dessert that makes the most out of turmeric. They're more tangy than sweet, making them the perfect dessert for those who don't like anything overly saccharine. Made with oats and chia seeds, they have the added benefit of being high in fiber, too.
Black bean brownies may sound like a dinner dish gone wrong, but this recipe will make a believer out of you. The secret to sweetening them up without refined sugar is using coconut milk, coconut sugar, and cacao powder. The fiber and protein in the beans work to help keep blood sugar levels steady, too.
