8. Lightened-Up Grasshopper PieLightened-Up Grasshopper Pie [Vegan]

Not saying it’s 100% healthy because the base is still made with chocolate cream biscuits, but it should be lighter on your digestive system than the original stuff.

9. Carob and Fig PieCarob and Fig Pie

Not only is this cake perfectly balanced (both in the flavor department and the nutrition department), all you have to do is throw all the ingredients in a blender and the place it in the refrigerator to set.

10. Seafood Pot Pie Vegan Seafood Pot Pie
