The Skinny Fruit Bake dessert is not only delicious, but it will save the sweet tooth of those looking to stay healthy and bathing suit ready!

This adds as a great topping to waffles, pancakes, and even oatmeal! For this recipe, feel free to add any fruits or put as much as you want into the recipe.
