After a long day of school and homework, I am always in need of a tasty treat. But it can be challenging to find desserts that are fast, easy to make and not going to give you an insane sugar rush at the end of the day. After some research, I found a website called the minimalist baker: http://minimalistbaker.com/recipes/, which contains a plethora of healthy, tasty treats. Here are some of my favorites:
