Looking at these blondies you'd probably never guess they were made without butter, flour or sugar. This recipe for Gluten-Free Chickpea Chocolate Chip Blondies pinned by Better Baking Bible swaps those ingredients out for chickpeas, peanut butter and honey instead.

Some great pies come out of the cold winter months, but this version pinned by Healing and Eating proves you can enjoy them all year long. The only sweetener in this Cacao and Coconut Cream Pie is dates.

These Raw Fruit Tartlets pinned by The Simple Veganista are a great breakfast or dessert that won't leave you feeling weighed down. The crust is made of nuts and dates and the filling consists of cashew sweet cream (and as an added bonus, there's no baking involved).

Smoothies are a great way to satisfy a sweet craving while filling up on nutrients. This Strawberry Kale Green Smoothie pinned by Organize Yourself Skinny contains Greek yogurt, coconut oil and almond milk (and optional bananas for extra sweetness).

You knew cupcakes were coming. Two Red Bowls pinned these Banana cupcakes with Nutella swirl. They don't have any frosting which makes them more like a muffin, and olive oil can be used to replace butter.
