Healthy Candy Recipes: An Oxymoron?

D you have an out-of-control sweet tooth that interferes with your goals of being healthy and lean? You’re not alone.

There’s a reason we love candy: Its nostalgic… its comforting… and its SWEET. In fact, candy bars deliver as much as 40 grams of sugar per serving – driving blood sugar levels sky high, promoting the storage of fat and  generating free radicals while setting the stage for diabetes, Alzheimer’s, cancer and most other chronic diseases.

Lucky for candy lovers, this sweet treat doesn’t have to be bad for you. With a few small adjustments in the ingredients you can enjoy healthy candy recipes that actually boost your metabolism, provide powerful antioxidant protection and are actually good for your body!

The Healthiest Candy: Chocolate!

Of course, one of the most popular types of candy is chocolate. And fortunate for chocoholics, chocolate candy can also be the healthiest too.

In fact, chocolate is also a superfood. Just like blueberries, kale, wild salmon and grass-fed beef,  chocolate has some powerful healing properties. Loaded with antioxidants and flavonoids, eating the right type of chocolate can provide a wide range of health benefits.

But, as is the case with other foods: all chocolate isn’t created equal.  Read our quick primer on creating healthy chocolate recipes to discover the five keys for choosing the healthiest chocolate.

Sweetening Power That Won’t Sour Your Health

And since you’ll be making your healthy candy recipes from scratch, you’ll also need to learn a little bit about the safe, low glycemic sweeteners and how to use them.

Sugar alcohols – most notably erythritol – produces great results in candy-making. With its clean, sweet taste, you can use it cup for cup just like sugar. Best of all it is all-natural, sugar-free and calorie-free too.

Make Your Own Healthy Candy Recipes Using Intelligent Ingredients

Of course, grass-fed butter, coconut oil, real vanilla and natural extracts all will come in handy when making your healthy candy recipes.

From classic Homemade Paleo Chocolate Bars to makeovers of your commercial favorites like Peanut Butter Cups, Healthy Mounds Bars, and Homemade Magic Shell… to toppings like Homemade Caramel and Hot Fudge Sauce to decadent Chocolate Truffles – you’ll find a candy-aisle assortment of healthy candy recipes you can whip up in minutes.
