I Quit Sugar - Flourless-Berry-Chocolate-Cake

It’s hard to come by anyone who doesn’t LOVE chocolate.

Yet, healthy chocolate recipes are a bit of rarity. It sucks because chocolate – the pure, unprocessed 100 per cent cacao – is known to be pretty good for us, lowering insulin resistance, blood pressure and even reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease.

So, we’ve made some healthy chocolate recipes that really let the goodness of the cacao shine through. Here are just five sugar-free* recipes from I Quit Sugar: The Ultimate Chocolate Cookbook which the IQS community go crazy for!

Chocolate Coconutty Granola

For a breakfast treat, you can’t go past this decadent granola (which can be kept for up to two weeks). Whip it out of the pantry, serve with a dollop of natural yoghurt and the rest of your morning will be a breeze.

Chocolate Zucchini Bread

We can’t think of many recipes that would be better for a morning tea. The zucchini makes this bread super moist and you can’t even taste that there’s half a kilo of veggies in it!

Tam Tims

The iconic Aussie biscuit these are inspired by is pretty sugary. We’ve given it a deliciously dark twist (but don’t worry, you can still drink your tea through one).

Flourless Berry Chocolate Cake

We wonder why this recipe is one of the most popular IQS recipes of all time. Could it be that it’s gluten-free, dairy-free and nut-free? That it tastes just like chocolate fudge? It’s a mystery.

Raspberry Ripple

The recipe that started it all! Sarah’s famous creation, which can be prepped in just 10 minutes, has had cameos all over TV and magazines (as well social media). Try it for yourself to see what all the fuss is about.

* When we quit sugar on the I Quit Sugar: 8-Week Program, we quit fructose (find out why here). Nevertheless, these recipes contain rice malt syrup (a blend of glucose and maltose), which can still raise insulin levels. We recommend enjoying on special occasions and sticking to a small portion size, or cutting down on the sweetener even further if you can.
