Sweeten the Deal This Valentine's Day: Our Top Picks for Healthy Chocolate

Posted by Amina AlTai on

Cupid's arrow may have got you, but that doesn't mean his chocolate-loving ways have to sabotage your hard earned gains.  This year, snack on something that you won't have to spend hours burning off at the gym --because we at BHH wholeheartedly believe that Valentine's Day treats should be sweet, just not too sweet.  
Here's are our picks on the best healthy chocolates to nosh on this V-Day. 
Why we love it: So many reasons!  Aside from tasting great, the brand is known for infusing its single-origin chocolate bars with adaptogens like rhodiola and ashwaganda.  It's also certified organic, dairy free, gluten free, soy free and low glycemic thanks to a small amount of coconut sugar.  With whole bars coming in at 150 calories and 6 grams of sugar, we're sweet on this brand for sure.  
Why we love it: We are huge fans of Hu Kitchen's NYC outpost.  Don't even get us started on the grain-free avocado toast—swoon-worthy is an understatement. But thanks to their epic chocolate bars, you'll be able to get a taste of these guys nationally.  With flavors like almond butter and puffed quinoa, hazelnut and crunchy banana it's clear to see why New York's Fitterati come in droves for these bars.  Free from dairy, refined sugar, gluten and soy these guys weigh in at 170 calories and 10 grams of sugar per serving (2 servings per bar). Much better than the drug store alternative, we say! 
Why we love it: True to their name this chocolate is as pure as it comes.  And if you love the rich flavors of dark chocolate unadulterated with sugar or other elaborate flavors, this bar is for you.  At 200 calories per serving and 0 grams of sugar, this is definitely a great options for those sugar and carbohydrate sensitive folks.  
Why we love it: One of my absolute favorite brands, Eating Evolved believes chocolate is food, not candy.  Well, we couldn't agree more.  Their crunchy caramel flavor is epic, but we are partial to their coconut butter cups which are basically mouthfuls of heaven.  An average serving runs you about 200 calories and 7 grams of sugar, which in our book, is a pretty sweet deal to experience pure bliss.
