19 Desserts You Won’t Believe Are Actually Healthy

When health is a top concern — whether it is because you’re dieting or simply living a healthy lifestyle — desserts can seem off-limits. But they don’t have to be! There are several ways to satisfy a sweet tooth without jeopardizing your health goals.

Whatever they are, research clearly shows they’re really good for us, with health experts saying we could probably be eating more nuts for our health. In fact, one study found people who ate a handful of nuts a day were likely to live longer than those who didn’t eat nuts.
