Between baked apples, warm cinnamon, and pumpkin spice everything, fall is bursting with a cornucopia of mouthgasmic flavors. But despite their radiant orange color and heavenly aromatics, most commercially available desserts are overindulgent, decorated monstrosities.

Just because something flaunts its “pumpkin” or “apple” innards, doesn’t mean it’s healthy. More often than not, you’re actually eating a stealthy minefield of fat.

Drop the PSLs, there’s no place.

In an effort to keep autumn svelte, we’ve compiled a roundup of 10 uber-healthy dessert recipes to provide your full-blown fall fix, sans the obnoxious calorie, sugar, or fat counts of most seasonal desserts.

From pancakes and cookies, to smoothies and shakes, it’s an autumnal arsenal that’ll keep your stomach lean and taste buds salivating. Get seasonal and indulge at will — the recipes only require a few simple ingredients and whip up in under 30 minutes.
