Admit it, you want chocolate. Morning, noon or night, your sweet tooth calls for something sweet, rich and chocolaty. It might seem that your healthy lifestyle can only handle a small amount of dark chocolate per day—but that’s hardly enough to quench your cravings. Avoiding desserts, like double chocolate chunk brownies, is not always necessary. All you need is a handful of better-for-you baking alternatives, a protein bar and dark chocolate chips for a treat that satisfies your taste buds and your diet.
