With the official start of beach season a mere month away, people are suddenly interested in healthy eating again. From green juice and the paleo diet, there are tons of ways to shed stubborn pounds. But let's be real: Who doesn't crave a cookie every now and then?

So we've turned to Pinterest and to find the best healthy cookie recipes. Whether gluten-free, sugar-free, or dairy-free, these treats are definitely not taste-free. Dare we say it? They're totally decadent—we bet you won't be able to stop at one.

Feast your eyes on double chocolate chunk cookies, which are ridiculously fudgy but contain no gluten, grain, egg, or starch. The substituted almond flour imparts a nutty bite.

We forgot all about white sugar after discovering a healthier sweetener found in these peanut butter jam-filled cookies. For something a little fancier, we're looking to the flavorful and gluten-free molasses rum raisin cookies made with arrowroot flour and unsulfured molasses, or these gorgeous almond pulp cookies that use almond milk leftovers and mashed dates.

So fire up your ovens with these recipes and indulge guilt-free with a few healthy cookies. Consider it our little secret.

Check out the slideshow above to discover guilt-free, healthy cookie recipes.
