Happy summer, ghee lovers! The sun is shining, the weather is heating up, and we are all collectively emerging from last year’s hibernation. We are just as thrilled as you are that we are able to safely gather together again with friends and family.  

To celebrate life picking back up again, we thought we’d roundup a few of our favorite healthy desserts – that feature 4th & Heart Ghee, of course – that will be a hit at any event or potluck all summer long! Enjoy, and happy cooking! 


Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Cup Stuffed Brownie Cookies by @rachlmansfield

Can you say that ten times fast? Sure it’s a mouthful to say, but it’s a *delicious* mouthful! These cookies are incredibly decadent and flavorful, and because they’re portable, we thought they’d be a perfect treat to make in advance and bring to any potluck or backyard BBQ!


Lemon Cream Paleo Sandwich Cookies by @paleorunningmomma

This is the paleo Oreo-lemon creamsicle mashup that you never knew you needed – once you try them, you won’t ever go back! These cookies are really easy to make and are a perfectly bright and zingy dessert to eat on a hot summer night. Be sure to bring extras, because these will disappear before you know it.


Paleo Lemon Pound Cake by @paleorunningmomma

We know we already have a lemon dessert on this list, but we included this recipe for two reasons: 1) The lemon can be switched out for any citrus (think orange, grapefruit, or lime) and 2) It’s a foolproof and incredibly yummy recipe, so we just couldn’t resist! We suggest subbing in our Vanilla Bean Ghee for extra flavor. This is a great dessert to load up with some berries and healthy whipped cream for a crowd-pleasing summer dessert! 


Healthy Pecan Pie Bars

Pecan pie is absolutely synonymous with summer gatherings, so it was a no-brainer to include it in this roundup of summery desserts. The crust gets its deliciously buttery flavor from, you guessed it, 4th & Heart Ghee, and is a perfect complement to the roasted, caramel-coated pecans. Hungry yet? We know we are.


Tres Leches Cake Healthy

5. Tres Leches Cake by @yummly 

This is another quintessential summer dessert made all the better with the addition of ghee! As this cake chills in the refrigerator, it soaks up all of the gloriously sweet milk to make a dessert that’s somewhere between a cake and a pudding. It’s beyond delicious, and it’s the perfect way to end a meal on a summer evening because it is best served cold!


Baked Churro Donuts

6. Paleo Baked Churro Donuts by @whatgreatgrandmaate

The last recipe in this roundup is an innovative (but just as amazing) twist on churros in the form of donuts! This recipe is also Whole30, Paleo, and nut-free (not that you’d ever be able to tell)! These sweet cinnamon treats are even better when dipped in an after dinner coffee or espresso, making them the perfect way to end the day whether you’re out with friends, or just at home with the family.
