Do you have any dessert recipes that are sugar-free? Bonus points for also being flour free.

I need inspiration for healthy dessert recipes that do not contain granulated sugar, powdered sugar, or sugar substitutes. The only sweeteners I would be okay using are honey, maple syrup, or molasses.
Right now I'm getting my chocolate fix by making raw cookies consisting of oats, coconut oil, honey, ground almonds, and cocoa powder, but I'd like a little variety.
I'm planning on trying black bean brownies sweetened, but I can't find recipes that don't use Splenda or Stevia. I also keep forgetting to soak the beans before going to bed.
To make it even more complicated, I'm trying to limit the amount of flour I eat, so if your recipes don't contain flour either, even better. I've found websites that offer low-carb recipes and websites that offer "sugar-free" recipes but none that offer both, and most sugar-free recipes use sugar substitutes.
