Healthy Chocolate Options for Easter
Somehow Easter is just around the corner, once again. And while we have fond memories of sugar comas as children, these days we like our chocolate fix with less of a hangover. Which is why you’ll find us reaching for a few healthier options. What are our go-to treats over Easter?
A classic right? You might be wondering why this is here in our healthy chocolate list. Have you ever tasted the Lindt varieties that are very high in cacao? 85% is our favourite. Due to the high chocolate content, there is very small amounts of sugar, making it a healthier option. The 90% obviously has even less, but it’s not for the faint hearted, neither is the 99%. That stuff is intense. If you go down the scale of cacao, the chocolate is still delicious, but sweet and filled with sugar, so choose accordingly.
Pana Chocolate is raw, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, and soy free chocolate. It tastes like fudgy chocolate brownies and a chocolate bar had a baby and we love that about it. You can buy the blocks at certain supermarkets, or online. While it’s all completely natural ingredients (agave and coconut sugar), it tends to have a high sugar content, so if that’s a thing for you, stick to a few squares.
