Desserts are my favorite part of holiday dinners. There’s so many different flavors, textures, and colors… and I’m a big fan of the sweetness. But since I’ve begun treating my autoimmune disease, I have to stay away from sugar for the most part. it’s not fun, and I really miss eating sweets during this time of year. So for those of us that can’t have gluten and traditional sugar in our desserts, here’s a fantastic roundup of healthy holiday desserts that will have us feeling like we aren’t missing out at all!
