Sugar is one of the biggest diet-wreckers out there, but desserts like bubble tea, ice cream, and pastries are hard to resist. A popular solution is to have our favourite treats in moderation, but another way is to substitute them with healthier alternatives that taste just as great.
Well, these homemade cinnamon rolls from Guilt Free Food are something diet and health-conscious people can look forward to. They’re low in sugar and preservative-free so you know you’re not consuming any of the usual nasties. Order a 10-inch pan from $28 and you can opt for delivery or self pick-up.
If you’re on the hunt for some other healthy desserts, you can also get their high-protein and gluten-free brownies at $40.
Delivery fee: $12

Home-baked brownies are a timeless comfort food for the whole fam to enjoy. So it’s not a surprise that brownies from home-bakers like The Circuit Baker blew up while we were confined to our homes.
They sell only one item – Sea Salt Fudgey Brownies, so you can be sure you’re getting a specialised recipe here. At $15, you’ll get 6 delicious brownies measuring 5CM x 5CM that are a mix of sweet, salty and soft.
For those in need of this chocolatey therapy, slots for order are open only on Sundays at 12PM. You’ll have to fill in an order form on their Instagram bio but the form closes as soon as they hit their quota so it’s fastest fingers first.

Burnt cheesecakes seem to have exploded in popularity during the Circuit Breaker. But if you don’t quite have natural Martha Stewart skills to make one at home, you can easily order one to try it out for yourself.
Paparch Sg specialises in burnt cheesecake, which is the sole item on their menu. Reviewers say it has a melt-in-your-mouth texture with a perfectly balanced sweetness and cheesiness, so no worries about getting jelak here.
The size is a standard 7” which serves around 7 to 8 people. It’s only $49 which is decent considering that’s about $6.50 per slice. Plus, it’s halal and individually made with care.
Delivery fee: $10

French desserts are known to be dainty and light, and madeleines embody just that. They may not be very common to find in Singapore, but this homebaker is putting them on the map. She Sells Seashells makes unique flavours all the time, and you can get a taste of everything from matcha and earl grey, to yuzu, salted caramel, orange fig and espresso.
Head over to their Instagram page to keep a lookout for their bake sales and prices, since their prices differ per sale. But, as seen in their most recent bake sale, you can expect to pay below $20 for 6 pieces, and get box sets with madeleines, cookies and financiers for about $38 to get your money’s worth.
Delivery fee: $8-$15, depending on location, self pick-up available

Any dessert with a filling is almost always a win, and brownies are no exception. Dee Bakes’ indulgent stuffed brownies don’t just stop at regular chocolate or cream fillings. They have unique ones like an ovomaltine filling in a dark chocolate sea salt brownie and a speculoos biscuit filling in a salted pretzel cheesecake brownie.
Besides being a treat for yourself, they also make a great gift for your buddies who’re still working from home. For a $26 box, you’ll get 6 generously stuffed brownies that probably won’t last long enough to see your fridge.
