Hi I’m Rhian, the founder of the Healthy Mummy and the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.

The Healthy Mummy is a health and weight loss program created for busy mums. It all started back in 2010 when I was pregnant and wanted to create a supportive and holistic program for mums (you can read my story here).

Fast forward to now, and now millions of mums use our famous 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge and Healthy Mummy Smoothies every day!

Whether I’m preparing my snacks for the week, entertaining friends, prepping for the lunchboxes, or just want to make something special for my family – these are the chocolate recipes I go for.

Here at the Healthy Mummy, we have created so many incredible chocolate recipes that you can enjoy as part of your weight loss eating plan.

There’s no need to miss out on chocolate just because you are trying to lose weight on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge!

My top 8 chocolate recipes

These eight recipes can all be made in advance too, and because I’m a busy mum of two boys that suits me perfectly.

It means I can make and bake when I’ve got some time, and then enjoy the ‘tada!’ moment as I pull out the special dessert or snack when I’m ready to serve it.

1. Chocolate Cake Bites

This is a lunchbox staple for my boys. They LOVE IT and I love it too as it’s a ‘mix it all in the food processor and bake it’ recipe!

I like to serve this decadent fudge with coffee after dinner when I’ve got friends over. This fudge is packed with protein thanks to the secret ingredient – chickpeas!

This has become my official party cake! Whenever it’s someone’s birthday I make this for them and decorate it with their favourite toppings. My boys love strawberries on top, while my husband likes it with shavings of white chocolate.

If I know I’ve got someone popping over for afternoon tea on the weekend, I head straight for this recipe. I make it the day before as it needs to set in the fridge overnight – plus it means I’m not busy cooking on the day.

7. Choc Orange Mousse

205 calories


I LOVE the five ingredient recipes from the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge and this is one of my all-time favourites. Pop everything in the blender until smooth, dollop into a bowl, and THAT’S IT.

When I’m asked to ‘bring a plate’ for family get-togethers, this is my go-to recipe. I usually chop it into small pieces to make it an easy to eat sweet treat.
