15 Healthy Candy Swaps!
When you think of the word candy, what comes to mind?
While some people might immediately think about Twizzlers, Sweet Tarts, Starburst, and gummy bears, my favorite candy has–unsurprisingly–always been of the chocolate variety. And while candy normally goes hand-in-hand with empty calories, artificial flavors, impossible-to-pronounce ingredients, and added sugar, it doesn’t have to be that way. The following 15 healthy candy recipes prove that it IS possible to eat candy on a healthy diet. Each of the healthy snacks below is vegan, and many of them can also be suitable for gluten free, keto, paleo, and other special diets as well. No one should feel left out of the fun!
