When you have a sweet craving, it’s hard to resist the urge to reach for something loaded with sugar, like chocolate or cookies. This can quickly result in eating more calories than you need or want, which can lead to health problems down the road if you aren’t careful. The next time you feel your sweet tooth kicking in, try one of these seven healthy sweet snacks instead!

1) Granola bars

Granola bars are a delicious and healthy sweet breakfast option. They can be eaten as a snack, or for breakfast on the go when you're in a rush to get out the door in the morning. You can also customize them to your liking by adding ingredients like dried fruit, chocolate chips, nuts, or seeds.

2) Hard-boiled eggs

Hard-boiled eggs are a healthy sweet breakfast that you can make ahead of time and take on the go. Plus, they're inexpensive and easy to make, and you can eat them cold or reheat them for a warm meal. To boil eggs, place the desired number in a pot (the more eggs you have, the longer it'll take) and fill it with enough water to cover the eggs by 1 inch. Bring the water to a boil over high heat before turning it down to simmer for 12-15 minutes depending on how hard you want them cooked. Once they're done cooking remove them from the pot and serve hot or cold in an airtight container.

3) Banana ice cream

This healthy sweet breakfast is a great way to start the day. You can get creative and mix in some peanut butter, chia seeds, or honey for a little bit of extra protein or sweetness. Plus, it's super easy to make and you can eat it straight out of the freezer if you want.

4) Homemade yogurt bites

These yogurt bites are a delicious and healthy treat that can be made quickly and easily. You can eat these for breakfast, lunch, or an afternoon snack. If you want to make the yogurt bites healthier, substitute peanut butter for a healthier nut butter such as almond or cashew.

1 cup (8 oz) plain Greek Yogurt

2 tablespoons honey 

1/4 cup ground almonds 

1/2 cup shredded coconut 

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon 

3 tablespoons peanut butter or other nut butter of choice

5) Chia seed pudding

The recipe for chia seed pudding couldn't be easier. All you need is some unsweetened plant-based milk, chia seeds, and a little sweetener (maple syrup or honey work great). Whisk all of the ingredients together in a small bowl and let it sit for five minutes to thicken up. That's it! You can add any toppings you want like fresh fruit, chopped nuts, or granola. The best part is that this pudding will last for up to three days in the fridge so you can make a big batch on Sunday and enjoy it all week long.

6) Popcorn

Popcorn is a great healthy sweet snack to try because it's a whole grain that doesn't contain any saturated fats and is rich in fiber, making it a tasty treat that will keep you feeling satisfied. Plus, one cup of air-popped popcorn contains only 43 calories. For an extra boost of flavor, sprinkle some cinnamon or sugar on your popcorn when it pops.

7) Overnight oats

This recipe is so easy, you'll never buy store-bought oatmeal again. All you need are four ingredients (including a blender): oats, your choice of milk, a sweetener, and fresh fruit. Blend it up in the morning and let it sit overnight to soak. The next morning all you need to do is heat up some milk or eat as is - breakfast will be ready in less than five minutes. Overnight oats are perfect for those mornings when you don't have time to cook anything but want something healthy and filling. They're also great for those days when you want a satisfying breakfast but don't want the sugar overload that comes with most cereals these days.
