Yes, Halloween has just passed, and your first instinct will be to reach for the fun-sized Snickers. But we know that deep down you want to be healthy. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of healthier alternatives for “that time of the month” or really any time of the month that will satisfy your sweet tooth. So don’t go breaking off the piece of that Kit Kat bar, and check out these delicious and easy recipes.
1. Protein-Packed Cake Batter Dip
Have your cake and eat it too. This recipe is a better alternative to gorging on the actual cake batter. It also gets two thumbs up for being vegan, gluten-free, and chock full of protein.
2. Guilt-Free “Ice Cream”
I scream, you scream, we all scream for “ice cream.” This super easy recipe consists of only 3 ingredients: frozen bananas, peanut butter, and cocoa powder.
3. No-Bake Protein Peanut Butter Cups
Reese’s lovers rejoice! This recipe is delicious and under 100 calories (gasp). It uses PB2 (powdered peanut butter) instead of the real deal saving you some calories while still giving you that protein kick.
4. Healthier Chocolate Cake
YAS QUEEN! This rich, chocolatey goodness tastes like a double chocolate chip banana muffin and has no butter, oil, or sugar. Save me a slice!
5. Two-Ingredient Banana Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Bites
This recipe is simply bananas and chocolate chips, does life get any easier/better?
6. Healthy Strawberry Frozen Yogurt
No need to put on pants to satisfy your froyo cravings; you can make it at home! This easy recipe doesn’t even require an ice cream maker because who owns one of those things? If you’re feeling adventurous, throw it in a homemade waffle cone.
7. Baked Sweet Potato Chips
If you’ve covered the sweet tooth and now need the savory try this alternative to chips. Sweet potatoes contain a ton of vitamins including vitamin A, vitamin C, magnesium… the list goes on.
8. Spicy Garlic Oven-Roasted Chickpeas
Salty, crunchy, healthy snacking goodness. You will not be able to stop munching on these chickpea treats. Snack on them by the handful straight out of the bowl or throw them in a salad or veggie bowl.
