Don't Forget Dessert!

Because we do not want to live in a world without dessert, we've put together four decadent recipes you can feel very good about indulging in. Each one of these desserts is heart-healthy, cancer preventing, and brain boosting. Pretty sweet, huh?


Chocolate-Dipped Pears

  • 3 tbsp. dark chocolate pieces
  • 1 small pear, sliced
  • 2 tbsp. walnuts, chopped
Put 3 tbsp. dark-chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and heat for 30 to 45 seconds, or until chocolate is melted (don't overcook; chocolate will burn). Chop 1 small pear into slices; dip into chocolate until half of each slice is covered. Sprinkle chocolate-dipped ends with 2 tbsp. chopped walnuts, place on waxed paper, and refrigerate for 15 minutes, or until set.


Baked Apple with Walnut Crumble

  • 1 medium apple
  • 1 tbsp. walnuts
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 tsp. brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp. oats
Wash and core 1 medium apple. Mix together 1 tbsp. walnuts, 1 tsp. cinnamon, 2 tsp. brown sugar and 1 tbsp. oats. Fill center of apple with walnut mixture. Place in microwave-safe dish, cover, and microwave for 6 to 7 minutes, or until apple is tender.


Broiled Bananas with Walnuts

  • 1 banana
  • 1 tsp. honey
  • 1 tbsp. walnuts, chopped
Cut 1 banana in half lengthwise (leave in peel). Place on piece of foil, skin side down, and broil 5 to 6 minutes, or until browned on top. Drizzle with 1 tsp. honey and sprinkle with 1 tbsp. chopped walnuts. Serve in banana peel.


Chocolate-Covered Figs

  • 3 figs, dried
  • 3 walnut halves
  • 3 tbsp. chocolate chips
Make small incisions in bottoms of 3 dried figs and stuff each with 3 walnut halves. Place 3 tbsp. chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 30 to 45 seconds, or until chocolate is melted. Dip stuffed figs into chocolate. Place chocolate-covered figs on plate or waxed paper in refrigerator for 10 minutes, or until set.
