Show off your favorite fruit with these two-bite dessert pizzas. These ones have mixed berries, but we think sliced kiwi or banana would also be super delicious. The marshmallow creme has just two ingredients, so if you need a crowd-pleasing dessert in a pinch, this recipe is perfect for you.

Part carrot cake, part blondie, this recipe uses healthy ingredients like flax meal, coconut oil, and avocado–and plenty of yummy things like cinnamon and pecans. Even the Easter bunny will approve of this carrot-filled treat.
