These 15 Healthy Comfort Food Recipes will Keep You Warm and Cozy! All recipes are made with whole food ingredients, no refined ingredients, and all taste divine!

A montage of comfort food dishes with text over it. If it’s really cold or even a little cold where you are right now, no doubt you want some comfort food. If it’s hot where you are, definitely check out this no bake dessert recipe list! I made a list of my favourite healthy comfort food recipes because who doesn’t want comfort food to keep them warm and cozy?? “Healthy” here (since it means many things to different people) means everything is made from scratch, all whole food ingredients, no refined flours or sugars and all use healthy alternative/sub ingredients where possible. Also, if you read my last post about hygge (pronounced hoo-guh) then these recipes are perfect for when you’re practicing/embracing hygge.!

More importantly, everything tastes divine without any guilt. Dig in, and enjoy!
