Healthy Dessert Recipe Collection

A healthy dessert recipe can taste just as yummy as a naughty one! 


With a few swaps you can create some old favorites with healthier ingredients and no one will know the difference. 


Here at Chocolate Candy Mall, we have a LOT of naughty recipes.  I love their sweet gooey goodness, whether they are chocolate based desserts or not.


However, the older I get, the more I appreciate the importance of being a bit more sensible when it comes to a healthy diet. 


Cutting back on sugar intake is a great place to start, but there are other substitutions that can be made to turn less healthy treats into healthier options. 


In fact, it's about time we start a Healthy Dessert Recipe Collection


I'm adding a form down below where YOU can submit YOUR own favorite healthy recipes for desserts.  I especially look forward to your ideas for healthy chocolate desserts.


My friend Becky from Wisconsin has agreed to start us off with our first recipe.  I put out a request for homemade goodies and she was quick to share this cake recipe that she whipped up for a family birthday.  I hope you'll like it as much as I do.  Thanks Becky!  :)

Healthy Dessert Recipe For Chocolate Chip Cake
By Becky Kielas

healthy dessert recipe collection

I don't bake desserts very often but I am today. 


I'm making a cake for my mother in law's birthday. ;)


She doesn't have to eat healthy, but I do, and I want to enjoy cake with her, so I am making it with coconut flour, coconut sugar, and coconut cream.  


Here's my CHOCOLATE CHIP CAKE recipe...

  • 1/2 c butter melted
  • 1/2 c coconut milk
  • 12 eggs
  • 1 c sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 c sifted coconut flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 c sweet chocolate chips


  1. Blend together everything except the flour, baking powder, and chocolate chips to make a wet batter.

  2. Combine the coconut flour with baking powder, then whisk into the wet batter until there are no lumps.

  3. Fold 1/2 cup of chocolate chips into the batter. Pour batter into a greased 11 x 7 x 2 inch or 9 x 9 x 2 inch pan. Sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips evenly over the top of the batter; they will sink into the cake while cooking.

  4. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 C) for 40 - 45 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Cool and frost.



This recipe is from the book, Cooking With Coconut Flour by Bruce Fife.
