Originally located in Brooklyn, Elisa’s Love Bites new outpost is void of refined sugars, artificial sweeteners, food dyes and harmful additives. Focusing on the philosophy that you shouldn’t have to sacrifice your health to enjoy dessert, Elisa’s Love Bites focuses on wholesome, quality ingredients and powerful flavors, ensuring that their healthy alternatives are equally tasty.

Low-glycemic sweeteners are used in lieu of artificial sugars, instead using ingredients such as agave nectar, coconut palm sugar and apple puree. Her Bangin’ Chocolate Chip Cookies are exactly that — bangin’. Other offerings include Fig Buddies, Almond Butter Cookies, Flourless Brownies, cake, tarts and donuts. The bakery is open Tuesday-Saturday from 11am-7pm and orders and nationwide shipping is available online.
