These 17 hidden vegetable desserts sneaky in healthy veggies – like zucchini, beets, and pumpkin – though your eaters will never know!
My hobbies include cooking vegetables. And cooking treats. And sometimes hiding said vegetables into said treats.
Because whether you have a picky eater on your hands, have a surplus of veggies that need to be used, or just want to experiment with more healthy baking, adding vegetables to desserts can be a fun way to break out of the box in your cooking!
