Enjoying Bariatric-Friendly Desserts for the Holidays
The holidays are a mixed bag if you're a bariatric patient. They can be full of magical experiences, but they can also make you feel torn between eating delicious holiday foods and sticking to your diet.
Desserts are especially challenging at this time of year. They're fatty, sugary, starchy, and high in calories. And, they're everywhere, including at work, in the home, and at parties and family gatherings. It's hard to resist, and now you don't have to. The BariatricPal Store has all kinds of Bariatric-Friendly Baking Mixes and Low-Carb Ingredients so you can enjoy desserts for the holidays.
Cookies and Brownies
Cookie exchanges can make you feel isolated if you’re not able to eat these sugary treats, but Bariatric-Friendly Cookie and Brownie Mixes can give you the chance to indulge, guilt-free. Have fudgy brownies and cookies such as Chocolate Chip, Snickerdoodle, Sugar, and Peanut Butter Cookies right from the oven.
They’re available in sugar-free and keto-friendly versions so you can stay on track. They take only minutes to prepare, and may require simple ingredients such as water or oil, butter, and/or eggs. Since they’re so good, you can use them for gifts or to serve at parties even though they’re okay for your own strict diet.
Cakes and Breads
Do you want to give a pretty loaf of sweet bread as a gift, or serve fresh cake at a gathering? Make it healthy with Bariatric-Friendly Baking Mixes! Banana Bread, Chocolate Cake, Yellow Cake, and Coffee Cake all come in keto-friendly mixes that are easy to prepare.
If you’re looking for a simple treat just for yourself, Mug Cakes may be just the thing. They’re portion-controlled and include flavors such as Chocolate, Chocolate Caramel, Vanilla Chocolate Chip, and Blueberry. These are also high in protein and microwaveable.
Frostings and More to Unleash Your Creativity
Our Low-Carb Mixes are easy to make with water or other minimal ingredients, but you can certainly add your own twists to your bariatric-friendly baked goods. It’s easy to jazz up your baked goods with bariatric-friendly ingredients such as low-carb or sugar-free Baking Chips in Milk Chocolate, Dark Chocolate, and White Chocolate, Chocolate Bars that you can break into chunks, and Frosting Mixes or Ready to Spread Frosting in flavors such as Buttercream, Chocolate, and Vanilla.
Baking Ingredients for More Seasoned Chefs
Do you want to bake from scratch using your own recipes? Go right ahead! The BariatricPal Store has low-carb ingredients that can let you make low-carb, low-sugar baked goods that come out beautifully. Low-Carb Almond and Coconut Flours and Low-Calorie Sugar Substitutes such as Monk Fruit Blends can help keep away carbs and sugar from the sweetest, most scrumptious of baked goods.
Everyone deserves to have desserts at the holidays, even if you're a bariatric patient. The BariatricPal Store makes it possible for you to enjoy freshly baked desserts with low-carb baking mixes. This year, you can join the holiday party while staying on your bariatric diet.
