My idea of heaven involves eating chocolate at every meal. Also, in this little daydream, none of the chocolatey treats have any calories. Unfortunately, we live in the real world where that much cocoa would spell doom for my blood sugar levels. What’s a chocolaholic to do? Thankfully, there are plenty of ways to craft healthy chocolate recipes for almost any occasion.
Now, you may be wondering what I mean by healthy. To to be honest, I define healthy kind of broadly: anything without loads of butter and sugar is a good start in the right direction, yes? And making use of ingredients like fruit, avocados, and chia seeds are even better. The beauty of homemade chocolate treats is that you have some control over how much sugar and fat go into your baking, and you can feel free to use healthier alternatives for butter or even some sugar substitutes to lighten them even more (leaving you free to chow down with abandon.)
From mousse to truffles, there’s a healthier chocolate treat for everyone. And with wholesome ingredients, these are the chocolaty treats you can feel good about eating. So the next time a chocolate craving strikes, consider one of these healthy chocolate recipes.
