As the holidays approached, I started asking:

What’s the perfect gift for Precision Nutrition’s awesome readers, clients, students, and grads?

Of course, the conversation turned to food.

We’ll give them a bunch of amazing holiday baking recipes to share (and savor) with friends and family.

But… at Precision Nutrition, we always like to keep things interesting. So we decided it wouldn’t just be PN-approved recipes. It would be a PN-approved recipe bake-off.

First up is our very own food photographer, Jason Grenci. In addition to being one of the best food photographers in the world, he’s also an incredible recipe developer who loves rich, premium ingredients.

(In other words, you won’t find dates or beets hidden in one of Jay’s delicious desserts).

Next up is Mariane Héroux-Potter, a holistic nutritionist, coach, and researcher here at PN. In addition to being excellent at all those things, she too is a talented recipe developer with expertise in less processed, whole-food substitutes for traditional baking components.

(In other words, you might find dates or beets hidden in one of Mariane’s delicious desserts).

So here’s the deal:

We engineered a head-to-head bake-off with the goal of creating five pairs of creative, unique, and delicious holiday desserts.

Tarts? Yes.

Cakes? You got it.

Chocolate? Of course.

These are 10 of the most amazing (and lovingly created) desserts I’ve ever laid eyes on.

Jay’s using classic staples like all-purpose flour and white sugar; Mariane’s using less customary ingredients like almond flour and applesauce. Both creating combos that blew our minds.

Check out the photos below to see what I mean. Then download our beautiful, and free, recipe book to try the treats for yourself.
