Chocolate is healthy right? After all, it’s rich in antioxidants that fight heart disease and inflammation and can improve brain function. It’s even been shown to reduce insulin resistance. But not all chocolate is created equal. Many brands contain quite a bit of refined sugar, additives, and dairy. So I sought out healthy dairy-free chocolates with options for almost every diet.
The delicious vegan chocolate brands below will help you stay on track for the holidays and beyond. They include sugar-free, refined sugar-free, allergy-friendly, organic, wholesome, adaptogen, and superfood options. Whether you’re keto, paleo, diabetic, whole30, plant-based, or just have a penchant for good nutrition, I have you covered. Most of these healthy dairy-free chocolates are also soy-free (made without soy lecithin).

If the attractive packaging doesn’t get you, the types of chocolate will. Each variety is vegan and made from unroasted dark chocolate, but otherwise, no two are alike. Several flavors are dessert-worthy, but some could pass as a snack or even breakfast! We’re most intrigued by the sugar-free Pure Cacao & Strawberry & Coconut, which literally contains only those ingredients, and the Oat Milk Bar that’s sweetened with maple sugar.
This company was well ahead of the trends. They began making nutritious truffle bars infused with superfoods over a decade ago. Their flavors are unique, yet addictive, and usually sweetened with fruit and a touch of agave nectar. You can read my Righteously Raw review.
This is one of my favorite chocolatiers. They make uniquely rustic, organic, fair trade, and truly dairy-free chocolate discs. Those thick rounds are virtuous, but Taza takes it to the next level with their Almond Milk Bars. This creamy, nutty chocolate is sweetened solely with coconut sugar and infused with almond flour.
These might sound really sweet, but they’re enrobed in 100% cacao chocolate for an intense contrast to the pure honey filling. They come in several varieties, which are simply flavored with pure extracts. They’re a great option for paleo purists.
Every Amore di Mona product is gift-worthy, but that doesn’t mean you can’t gift them to yourself! This company is on an allergen-free and low-glycemic mission. Their baseline recipe uses just Belgian cocoa solids, French cocoa butter, and madhava agave nectar, and each chocolate and bar is very low in sugar.
Gnosis has a trendy image, but they’re really a hippie chocolatier at heart. They sweeten their raw, low-glycemic truffles and chocolate bars with coconut sugar and raw blue agave. Most of their flavors are also infused with medicinal ingredients like maca root, tulsi (holy basil), pau d’arco, and chaga mushroom.
This organic chocolate shop uses such sweet packaging, it’s hard to believe they’re low glycemic (they use coconut sugar)! Their truffle boxes made our Best Dairy-Free Chocolate Gifts list, but we’re also longing for their truffle chocolate bars. These filled treats come in enticing varieties like Caramel and Mint Meltaway.
Despite their truffle name, this company is well known for raw, organic, dairy-free, soy-free, and refined sugar-free chocolate bars. Their Classic and Rasa lines are sweetened solely with honey and spiked with Ayurveda superfoods.
Hu was one of the original dairy-free and paleo chocolatiers, and they use coconut sugar for sweetness. I tried their chocolate at a trade show, and immediately fell in love with its sultry flavor. They now offer a range of chocolate bars and nut butter-filled bars.
This chocolatier makes raw, dairy-free, and certified organic bars that seem to follow no rules. They sweeten some bars with honey and some with coconut sugar. They also offer twists on classic flavors and go rogue with bold infusions like Cacao Alchemy and Appalachian Wild Chai.
They make bars and meltaways, but we’re eyeing Pure Love’s Buttercups. The collection includes Caramel Coconut Cream Cups, Almost Buttercups, and more. And it’s all sugar-free! These dairy-free, keto-friendly treats are sweetened with stevia.
These honey-cocoa bars are made from five ingredients: honey, coconut oil, cocoa powder, Himalayan pink salt, and either sprouted almonds or shredded coconut. But they do offer various flavors, like Mayan Spice and Oregon Peppermint.
This sweet vegan and paleo company has quickly expanded their product line. They now have dairy-free Dark Chocolate Bars, Cashew “Milk” Chocolate Bars, and Butter Cups sweetened with coconut sugar. They also have Keto Cups sweetened with monk fruit extract.
This isn’t a strictly dairy-free company, and they do use cane sugar in most of their (delicious!) dairy-free dark chocolate bars. But their Coconut Milk Chocolate Bar is dairy-free and sweetened with coconut sugar for a slightly more wholesome hit. If you don’t mind a touch of pure cane sugar, their Extreme and Eclipse dark chocolate bars are very low in sugars. They’re also soy-free and made with organic ingredients.
The name says it all. Each bar is made with around seven ingredients, and carries certified organic, paleo, and kosher labels. Their flavors are quite classic, ranging from Espresso to Peppermint. But they use honey for sweetening and their own special spin.
These semi-sweet Chocolate Bars are sugar-free and sweetened solely with monk fruit sweetener. They come in a small range of flavors that are keto and vegan. We also like that each bar is a full three ounces, because who stops at one ounce?
We just stumbled upon this sassy collection, and it’s organic, vegan, and sweetened with coconut sugar. Sometimes they also add a little agave, but the ingredients are pure, simple, and dairy-free throughout their entire Chocolate Bar and Truffle collection.
Also known as “fat bombs,” Macalat’s Wizadry Bar is definitely some kind of magic. It’s mostly organic, sugar-free, vegan, keto-friendly, packed with all sorts of healthy ingredients, and somehow people love it! If you have issues with sugar alcohols, be warned that this chocolate is sweetened with erythritol (and monk fruit extract).
They aren’t a strictly dairy-free company, but this popular keto brand does keep their sugar-free dark chocolate pure. It’s made without dairy, soy, and sugar alcohols, and it’s sweetened with just monk fruit extract. They offer several varieties of dark chocolate Squares and Bark.
