LIKE OGP ON FACEBOOK :

When we gathered the most popular recipes of 2015, one thing was for certain: Green Monsters love desserts. Candy bars, cheesecakes, and truffles are just a few of the delightfully decadent desserts that are sure to be the inspiration for your next kitchen creations! This list also goes to show that you don’t need a full pantry stocked with fancy ingredients to create amazing things — in fact, many of these recipes feature coconut milk, dates, and chocolate, yet they still manage to be unique. Are you ready to feast your eyes upon the most drool-worthy desserts ever?

  1. Chocolate Brownie and Peanut Butter Parfait

    This parfait is absolutely delicious! Peanut butter and chocolate mousse is layered with raw chocolate brownie and then topped with homemade coconut whipped cream — and it takes a total of five ingredients to make it.

  2. Maple Banana Tiramisu Trifle

    What’s better than dessert? How about two desserts in one? A marriage of two famous European desserts was the inspiration behind this decadent creation. Coffee-infused cashew cream, rich chocolate drizzle, and bananas? Heaven.

  3. Homemade Twinkies With Coconut Whipped Cream Filling

    Don’t be intimidated by how complicated this recipe looks. Trust us, you really need to make these. Golden sponge cakes are filled with a generous amount of coconut whipped cream. These treats taste exactly like your favorite snack cakes — except they’re homemade so they taste, like a million times better.

  4. Lemon and Lavender Yogurt Cake

    Zesty lemon and soft notes of lavender pair perfectly together in this cake. Coconut yogurt is the key ingredient in making a cake that’s both moist and decadent, yet not heavy. Can’t you just picture this cake being the perfect centerpiece to a springtime garden party?

  5. Black Forest Cake

    Would you believe that avocados were used to make the frosting on this cake? Yep! When blended with chocolate, it makes the most rich and decadent frosting that you’ll ever taste. Not to mention, the chocolate cake itself is made with whole grains and applesauce, meaning that it’s an indulgence that you don’t have to feel too guilty about. If you want to enjoy a slice of this for breakfast, we won’t tell anyone.

  6. Tiramisu Brownies

    Here’s another example of why we love two-in-one desserts so much. This intensely chocolatey brownie is infused with a hint of coffee for a true tiramisu experience. It’s then topped with a creamy tofu cheesecake layer, making it irresistible, and then topped with an amazing tofu cheesecake layer.

  7. Mini Doughnut Balls With Caramel Dipping Sauce

    Fried donut balls. Should we say it again? Okay, here it goes: fried donut balls. These bite-sized delights are light, fluffy, and rolled in crunchy sugar crystals for added measure. Oh, and did we mention that they go perfectly with the caramel dipping sauce? Resistance is futile.

  8. Lemon Coconut Curd and Cupcakes

    Strictly speaking, we love a dessert with filling. These awesome cupcakes have a zesty coconut lemon curd filling. Not only that, but desiccated coconut is blended into the flour, meaning you get a taste of coconut in every bite.

  9. Chocolate Peanut Butter Power Bites

    These power bites are simple, nutritious, and packed with so much chocolaty goodness, you’d never guess that they’re actually good for you! Oh, and all that it takes to make them is a food processor, so that means less time waiting and more time snacking on these yummy treats.  No matter what, peanut butter, chocolate, and coconut always taste great together.

  10. Raw Vegan Twix Bars With Banana Date

    What time is it? It’s candy bar time! We’re proud to present to you an oat-and-date cookie bar base, covered with banana-and-date caramel, and then both are enveloped in smooth and creamy chocolate. Sure, your regular Twix bar does not contain banana, but when the result tastes this good, you’ll forget the nitty-gritty details.

  11. Sugar-Free Puffed Quinoa and Cacao Nib Chocolate Bars

    Puffed quinoa brings an addictive crunch to these minty chocolate bars! These little guys are solid proof that your desserts don’t need any extra sugar to taste extra-amazing.

  12. Raw Chocolate Coconut Balls (Just Like Bounty Truffles!)

    What better way to celebrate existence than with a sweet treat — particularly one that includes chocolate and coconut? A richly creamy coconut filling is covered in sweet chocolate and then you need only wait fifteen minutes for them to firm up in the freezer. A tough price to pay for something so amazingly yummy.

  13. Vegan Snickers!

    Medjool dates are naturally sweet with a richly caramel-like taste, making them perfect for mimicking the caramel and nougat layer of a traditional Snickers bar — without the processed sugar. These bars are fantastically gooey, crunchy, and chocolatey, all at the same time. How long can you hold out on trying these?

  14. Chocolate Covered Cheesecake Bites

    The only challenge with these bites is eating only one. Chocolate and cheesecake are pretty much a match made in heaven, so it’s no wonder that these little desserts are as delicious as they are. Creamy and rich on the inside, sweet and decadent on the outside, and an absolute delight to eat!

  15. 4 Ingredient Chocolate Caramel Truffles

    Prepare yourself to indulge in the simplest of simple desserts. Four ingredients and forty minutes in the freezer is all that stands between you and these heavenly chocolate caramel truffles.

  16. 5-Ingredient Vegan Quinoa Fudge

    Again and again, this list of great desserts just keeps proving that you don’t need to be an expert, nor do you need to give a lot of your time in order to make something delicious. Dates are a hero to a world of seriously awesome desserts. We already knew that they could make caramel, but fudge, too?! Unbelievable!

  17. 7 Ingredient Lemon Coconut Squares

    Let’s take a brief detour from all the chocolate to introduce this refreshing dessert. These bars put a new spin on traditional lemon bars in only seven ingredients! A creamy coconut filling that totally melts in your mouth sits atop a toasted almond coconut crust.

  18. Pumpkin Peanut Butter Truffles

    Peanut butter and chocolate are a dream team. How do you make something so perfect even better? How about adding pumpkin spice to a creamy maple peanut butter filling and then covering it with chocolate? These truffles melt in your mouth and they’ll take you all of five minutes to make.

  19. Peanut Butter and Jelly Cups

    This ridiculously simple treat starts with a layer creamy peanut butter shell. Next comes a juicy berry chia seed jam. Finally, another layer of peanut butter shell tops it off. The result is a little salty, a little sweet, and a whole lotta deliciousness.

  20. Creamy Coconut Mango Pops

    Let’s hear it for easy ice cream recipes! These coconut mango pops are bursting with bright tropical flavors — and then they’re dipped in chocolate and covered with coconut flakes. Once you try the original recipe, we highly recommend that you experiment with other fruits, like banana and pineapple.

  21. Egg-Free Cookie Dough (It’s Okay to Lick the Bowl!)

    Skip the oven and dive right into a bowl of the good stuff — like this heavenly cookie dough dip. We can all probably agree that the cookie dough is the most sought-after part of cookies, anyway, so why not? The secret ingredient to this sweet-tooth-satisfying treat is chickpeas! When blended with sweetener and a little bit of nut butter, those little beans perfectly mimic the taste and texture of cookie dough. Sounds like magic, right?

  22. Key Lime Coconut Cheesecake Cups

    These mini cheesecakes are so easy to make, but their taste will fool anyone into believing that you’re a master dessert-maker. Key lime and coconut have been proven to be absolutely amazing together, so why not combine them into one adorable mini dessert?

  23. Strawberry Cheesecake

    This is everything that a cheesecake should be: dense, indulgent, and delicious. A creamy vanilla cheesecake layer that sits atop a walnut crust is then coated with a sweet strawberry syrup made from dates. Strawberry cheesecake is a delight in spring and summer, but truth be told, we’d eat this dessert anytime!

  24. Matcha Green Tea and Mint Cheesecake

    Not only does this cheesecake look stunning, it also tastes amazing! The distinct flavor of matcha green tea and refreshing mint taste like they were made to be together. And that mint chocolate coating — um, yes please! If you love matcha, you have to make this recipe. No compromise!

  25. Healthy, Organic, Raw, Vegan, and Gluten Free Snickers!

    Raw, refined sugar-free, full of antioxidants, and it tastes like … a candy bar?? Believe it! Our hearts skip whenever we think about this rich, decadent chocolate-and-caramel frozen dessert! It takes five minutes to thaw once it’s out of the freezer, but that almost seems like too long to wait before digging in.

  26. Blueberry and Acai Berry Cheesecake

    We love raw desserts! Especially this divinely rich cheesecake. Made with superfoods like fruity acai and pomegranate and chocolatey maca and cacao, this is a dessert that you can feel good about indulging in.

  27. Chocolate Banana Coconut Cheesecake

    The creamy chocolate banana filling of this dessert is more like fudge than cheesecake and that’s only one of the reasons why you need to make this. Let’s not ignore the crumbly graham cracker cookie crust that pairs so perfectly with the chocolate and banana flavors. Not to mention, the top layer is a gooey coconut caramel that’s crispy on the edges. We’ll take a slice!

  28. Raw-vocado Key Lime Pie

    We love avocados, so why not use them to create amazing desserts? We already knew that we can create rich and decadent chocolate desserts with them, but we’d never have guessed that they’d be perfect for this inventive spin on key lime pie. Together, lime and avocado create an unforgettably creamy, delicious key lime pie layer that sits atop a date-and-nut crust.

  29. Chocolate Banana Peanut Butter Pie

    Let’s talk about the layers of this pie because they’re truly worth celebrating. There’s the cookie crust, a sweet, fluffy peanut butter and banana layer that we could eat an entire bowl of, and a layer of chocolate made impossibly rich and creamy thanks to the magic of coconut milk. When it comes to frozen pies, this one is among the best of the best!

  30. Fudgy Marshmallow S’mores Brownies

    S’mores are, without a doubt, the best part of any camping trip. Sadly, they also require an open fire, which many of us don’t have access to. This dessert is like a beacon of light on a foggy night. These fudgy brownies let you have all the ooey-gooey marshmallow-and-chocolate goodness with none of the mess. No open campfire needed.
