8 Chocolate Recipes That are Actually Healthy


Wait… huh? Are we serious? Can chocolate really be healthy?

Not on its own, necessarily.

But just because you use chocolate in a recipe does not mean the entire meal must be chalked up as a cheat.

You can combine chocolate and other ingredients to create meals that are both tasty, chocolate-filled AND not terrible for you.

To wit…

  1. Healthy Chocolate Muffins Recipe
    • Healthy Chocolate Muffins Photo
    • I have been dreaming of a healthy chocolate muffin for ages. Actually, to be exact, a healthy chocolate cherry muffin. The double chocolate part that was attained by adding a few mini chocolate chips wasn’t a necessity, I admit. But more chocolate? It was really a no brainer. Obviously more chocolate is always better. Not healthier I …

    • Protein is my “thing.” So much so that I might even go as far as to say it my “thannnng.” It keeps you full so you can avoid that whole ‘oh-my-gosh-I-am-so-hungry-I-could-eat-my-arm-right-now” feeling that sometimes happens between breakfast and lunch break. I make sure that I include protein at all my meals (like at breakfast time with …

    • Sometimes I look for excuses to eat cookies for breakfast. Okay, okay, it’s actually all the time. Now that I think about it, I think I’ve talked about cookies for breakfast with you before … *rustle rustle* Yup! Sure did right here, in my chocolate protein cookies recipe. Alaina even got in on the action too, with her apple pie …

    • I know a lot of people try to avoid sweets after the holidays, but I still crave dessert. The only problem is that after a full month of nearly constant cookie baking, I’m far too lazy to make anything involved. The simpler, the better – and if it’s kind of healthy? Bonus! These vegan and …

    • You guys, I seriously can’t even handle these cookies right now. I’m kind of freaking out over them. I probably ate about 5 or 6 of these bad boys as I was testing the recipe, trying to find the avocado in them and you can’t taste it at all. Apart from trying to taste the avocado, I was …

    • There’s this thing that happens when you dig your spoon through creamy, wholesome flecks of oatmeal… And then it lands in the thickest, richest layer of (HEALTHY) brownie batter.
