The Rise of ‘Healthy’ Chocolate by Elle's Kitchen

Let’s face it, we all know that chocolate isn’t ‘healthy’* but we also know we can’t resist the stuff and sometimes it’s the only thing that can really curb sweet tooth cravings.

It seems that many healthy food, and chocolate companies are realising this dilemma and bringing to market a whole range of chocolate products that come with added health benefits.

Maybe it’s to help reduce the ‘guilt’** of eating naughty foods or perhaps to mask the taste of the healthy bits, whatever it is, I just know that I’m well and truly sold on the ideal of a healthy bar of chocolate, that not only does good, but tastes good too! Here are some of my favourites…

Benefit Dark Chocolate – These bars of dark chocolate use quality cacao and avoid milk solids making then entirely vegan! What’s more, each bar has added vegan proteins or vitamins which give you 50% of your recommended daily intake of 12 vitamins. There’s even a bar to increase energy levels! Genius!

If you’ve tried any other chocolates with added benefits let me know below, I’d love to discover some more!
