These easy chocolate desserts all have one thing in common: they’re healthy!
These recipes are all based on cacao powder (one of the purest forms of chocolate). Cacao powder is minimally processed and contains good amounts of calcium, magnesium, and antioxidants.

Another thing these healthy dessert recipes have in common is that all of them are free from processed sugars.
Instead of using processed sugar (including cane sugar and coconut palm sugar), these chocolate desserts use natural variations:
- Maple syrup
Not only does this help in terms of sugar control but opting for natural sugars means there are more nutritional benefits as well.

Chocolate Almond Butter Cups
One of my favorite chocolate dessert recipes because it’s so freaking simple!
Using basic ingredients, this no-bake recipe freezes up extremely quickly and gives you possibly the best flavor combination ever.
Chocolate Chia Cake
This recipe is from Clever Chef and has two of my favorite words in it: chocolate and cake. And since chia seeds are one of the foods I think everyone should be eating, I’m pretty sure that makes this cake a necessity.
Sea Salt Chocolate Hummus
You may not feel like hummus classifies as a dessert, but I assure you that this recipe from Lemons & Zest does!
Sea salt and chocolate go together perfectly, and a chocolate fruit dip is always a win at a party!
Chocolate PB Banana Nice Cream
Sometimes, you just need a little chocolate ice cream! For comfort, for pregnancy cravings, or just because it’s Tuesday.
For me, I like to opt for dairy-free ice cream (read a few tips on how to cut dairy here) but I rarely ever keep store-bought in the freezer.
I do, however, have all the ingredients to make this tasty recipe on hand at all times. This chocolate peanut butter banana nice cream is serious stuff here folks.
This is one of those tasty indulgences that process that healthy dessert recipes are the way to go!
Chocolate Turtles- Healthy Ones
There was a time I was obsessed with chocolate turtles. I mean really, they’re an ideal flavor combo! But these healthy ones take the cup on even the traditional ones.
Natural Green Mom killed it with this remake as they’re beyond addictive!
A simple recipe with simple ingredients but a ton of perfection. These easy chocolate dessert cups from Melissa Torio are a great (and mini!) way to satisfy a sweet tooth!
The first time I saw these almond chocolate crepes from I Heart U Mami I drooled on my computer- truth.
They’re a decadent combo, full of flavor and unbelievably light. We’ve made them multiple times for breakfast, snacks, or even dessert at girls’ night. I love them.
Healthy Homemade Chocolate Candy Bars
Every so often, I miss the days when I’d go into the store, crab a chocolate bar (or three) and mow down.
While this still works for most people it’s just not my thing. The dairy and sugar overload were hurt my stomach and I never find it worth it.
These candy bars are though!
Chewy, sticky, chocolate deliciousness is what they are. Perfection.
Bliss balls are a staple around here. They’re beyond simple but they also dress up really nicely! This means that you can make them look super pretty in a pinch for a party and everyone will devour them.
This recipe from Debra Klein nails them and my hubby’s friends loved em (and the guys are by no means healthy eaters haha!)
Chocolate Pumpkin Cake
This marbled paleo chocolate pumpkin bread from What Grandma Ate is so moist and delicious, and so easy to make using canned pumpkin! It’s the perfect treat to welcome the cooler weather.
