Making a chocolate dessert does not mean that it has to be loaded with sugar to counter the slight bitterness of the start ingredients. A few changes in the recipe can help you make healthier chocolate desserts than what you are accustomed to eating and buying. Try out the recipes below and you will be able to impress everyone in your home.

Oatmeal Chocolate Cookies

Loaded with fibre, oatmeal and chocolate cookies are a blend of delicious flavours and nutrients. This dish is a perfect example of healthy sweet delectables. Preheat the oven and line a baking tray while you prepare for cookies. Mash bananas in a large bowl and add cocoa powder and oats to it. Combine the ingredients to make a soft dough.

Add peanut butter to the mix and fold in chocolate chips. The peanut butter will help to replace sugar and butter. Add scoops of this batter to the baking tray and bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes. Let the cookies cool down and enjoy them for a week.

Chocolate Bites

If you want to make a sweet dish that melts in your mouth, try making chocolate bites. Anyone can eat it, especially people with complaints of toothache. You need to start by mixing peanut butter and cocoa powder in a bowl until you get a smooth paste. 

Once the dough can be shaped, turn it into small spherical balls with your hands. Coat them either in cocoa powder or chocolate chips and refrigerate for a couple of hours. You can store these delicious bites in an air-tight container for at least a week.

Chocolate Coconut Bars

Chocolate and coconut are still an unexplored blend in the work of cuisine. However, you can use both ingredients to make a sweet dish that will make everyone a fan of your skills in the kitchen. Start by lining a baking tray with parchment paper and blending shredded coconut, maple syrup, a little bit of coconut oil, and water in a blend.

The mixture should be thick. Lay it on the tray and refrigerate it for a couple of hours. Meanwhile, keep the melted chocolate ready. Cut the coconut dish into small rectangular pieces and dip each piece in the chocolate. Line these pieces again in the baking tray, refrigerate, and store.

Chocolate Dry Fruits Ladoo

Dry fruits and chocolate are a great combination to make any unhealthy dish a powerhouse of nutrition. In this recipe, you will use jaggery powder, which is a healthier substitute for white processed sugar. Start by roughly chopping dry fruits, including dates, apricots, and raisins, into small pieces. 

Mix cashew powder, chopped dry fruits, jaggery powder, ghee, and cocoa powder in a small bowl. Dates and raisins will ensure that the ladoos are sweet enough. Take a small amount of mixture in your hands and turn it into a spherical ball. Store these delights in a container for a week and enjoy.

Chocolate Sorbet

Another recipe on the guilt-free list of sweet delectables is chocolate sorbet. It is a soft and delicate dish made with frozen banana slices. Add the slices, peanut butter, non-dairy milk, cocoa powder, and honey in a blender to grind everything into a smooth paste.

Once you have a thick dough, taste it to understand if you need to add more honey, cocoa powder, or peanut butter to it. If it is perfect, spread it out on a baking tray. Freeze it for at least 4 hours, cut it into slices, and enjoy.

Chocolate Fudge

It might sound absurd to you, but chocolate fudge can be made without adding sugar to it. You will need cocoa powder, full-fat coconut milk, a pinch of salt, and vanilla extract. The first step is to keep the baking tray ready with parchment paper.

Heat coconut milk in a pan, remove it from the flame and add cocoa powder to it. Once you have a smooth concoction, add a pinch of salt and vanilla extract to the mixture. Pour the batter into the pan and spread it evenly using a spatula. Refrigerate for 4 hours, cut it into squares or rectangles, and enjoy for a week.
