Top Desserts for Any Occasion

At Arrowhead Mills, we love crafting delicious recipes with yummy and healthy products. With so many sweets to choose from, you might need help deciding what to bake next. 

We’ve crafted together a list of some of our best dessert recipes for any occasion!

When you need something quick

We all have days when we realize we need to whip up something quickly! Whether it’s a last-minute gathering or your just short on time, we’ve got several great options. 

When it comes to speed, the oven might slow you down! One of your favorite no-bake recipes is our No-Bake Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Cookies. These cookies mix together in less than ten minutes–then just put them in the fridge or freezer to chill. If you’re feeling fancy, dip them in chocolate. Quick and yummy, this is also a great recipe to introduce baking to little ones without worrying about the oven. 

At Arrowhead, we love simple. Simple ingredients and simple recipes that you can make in advance. If you feel the same, then try our Chocolate Chip Cookie Jar Mix. Prep out a few of these jars to be able to make cookies whenever you need to!

When you need to make a lot

If you’re bringing a dish for a bigger event, you’ll want to make something that will let everyone try a bite, without you having to spend hours in the kitchen. 

Our Vanilla Hibiscus Cupcakes are easy to make in bulk amounts. These cupcakes aren’t only delicious, but also have a beautiful pink hue that will make them stand out. 

If you want a delicious cookie instead, check out our Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies. A batch of these cookies can easily be doubled, or even tripled, to serve all of your friends and family.  

When you have a special event

If you have a special event and want to bring a fun, delicious, and maybe a bit more fancy dessert to the table, we have some great options for you. 

Everyone loves tiramisu, and we’ve made a version that’s single-serve, allowing you to create a lovely display and ensure that everyone who comes is able to get one. Check out our Buttermilk Tiramisu recipe for your next event. It’s surprisingly simple and perfectly elegant. 

When you want a sweet crowd-pleaser, check out our Cheesecake Stuffed Cookies. These delicious chocolate cookies will delight your friends by being stuffed with a lovely not-too-sweet cream cheese fling. 

Our last suggestion for those special occasions is our Buttermilk Pudding. This pudding is made with our waffle mix and filled with delicious berries and a hint of liquor. It’s simple to make, but does require some chilling time, so make sure to make it in advance of your event.

When you want a complement to your tea or coffee

If you’re anything like us, you might want an after-dinner coffee or tea, and something just a little sweet. We have some great ideas. 

We love cakes and loaves for our after-dinner dessert, and you might too! Check out our Chai Coffee Cake which has a delicious warming flavor from chai and cinnamon. It pairs perfectly with tea or just a warm glass of milk. 

Our Peanut Butter Mocha Swirl Banana Bread is also perfect after dinner, or right when you wake up!

Healthy Holiday Recipe Ideas

Do you often celebrate the holidays with a big, sore belly that is too full to comprehend? In this post, you will find many tips and tricks for hosting healthier-than-usual holiday festivities to spare you a stomach ache. There are plenty of fantastic ways to make this year’s family gathering on the healthier side–better for your health and easier on the tummy!

Prepare veggie dishes

To start, focus on preparing a number of nutrient-dense vegetable dishes plays a huge role in keeping satiated. These are called “volume” foods as you can eat them in high quantities while sparing the calories.

Here are some side dish ideas that range from roasted vegetables to salads and more:

  • Balsamic-glazed root vegetables
  • Roasted Brussel sprouts with Parmesan cheese
  • Air-fryer green beans
  • Carrot and apple salad
  • Crispy air fryer potatoes
  • Simple roasted butternut squash soup
  • Quinoa stuffed squash
  • Greek yogurt potato salad

Prioritize proteins

In addition to loading up on vegetables and more volume-based foods; protein is the biggest factor in satiety. Your big Thanksgiving bird doesn’t have to be the only protein on the table. A roast, a shrimp cocktail, leg of lamb, cranberry meatballs, and deviled eggs are only some of the great protein-filled foods that everyone will benefit from eating.

Find the fiber

To finish, adding more fiber and complex carbohydrates is also a major key factor in how full you feel. The more fiber, the longer and slower it takes for you to digest. You’ll then be less likely to overeat and indulge too much on the lesser nutrient-dense foods.

Here are some dishes that are high in fiber:

  • Lentil & pomegranate salad stuffed sweet potatoes
  • Zucchini-lentil fritters with a lemon garlic aioli
  • Lentil & chickpea Wellington
  • Homemade hummus with crudité

Save room for dessert

With all of these delicious and inviting recipes, we can’t forget the best part of any holiday meal… dessert! These next few recipe ideas are all either made with lower sugar, added fiber from higher fiber flours & flaxseed, perhaps there’s added greek yogurt as well!

  • Mini greek yogurt cheesecakes
  • Flaxseed pumpkin bread with a cream cheese frosting
  • No refined sugar pumpkin parfaits
  • Healthy apple crisp
  • Chocolate covered chickpea clusters

While your entire holiday can consist of healthier options, if you decide to spend the day eating well and saving room in your belly for the best homemade desserts, we won’t judge! That’s the best part after all.

When you’re tired of pumpkin pie

You loved pumpkin pie in November. But now, you’re looking for something a bit different. Something fun. Something to make your Christmas guests go “Woah.” Well, we have some pies for that. 

If you love the delicious mix of peanut butter and chocolate as much as we do, then you’ll love our Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie.  This pie is served cold and contains the perfect mix of creamy peanut butter and a chocolate pudding-like filling. We also use oatmeal in our crust to give it a delicious crumble. 

Is peanut butter not your thing? That’s okay, we have plenty of other options too. Our Gluten-Free Cheesecake Pie is deliciously creamy and gluten-free! You can add peanut butter into the filling, or sub with a banana. Either way, it’s sure to be a game-changer this holiday season.
