We’re all stuck at home these days and let’s be real, comfort food sounds good. A lot of the time. If only we could find a way to make healthy comfort foods! Maybe some recipes with better ingredients, less sugar, a little more protein, you know… the things that few comfort foods have. Well would you fancy this!
I’ve partnered with some fellow food bloggers to share seven of my top picks for healthy comfort food recipes. Check out the recipes below!
Homemade Sweet Potato Fries with Garlic Yogurt Dip
The recipe includes not just one delicious component, but two – baked sweet potato fries that are seasoned to perfection AND an irresistible garlic yogurt dip that pairs well with nearly anything. This recipe of mine definitely hits the spot if you are craving some warm fries!
Lightened Up Tater Tot Hotdish
As a fellow Minnesotan, Jamie knows exactly how to craft the perfect Midwestern comfort food in a lighter way. And let’s be clear, it’s “hotdish” not “casserole” 😉 Find Jamie’s blog at So Happy You Liked It and follow her on Instagram at @sohappyyoulikedit!
One-Pot Lighter Beef Stroganoff
I sincerely want to dive straight into this pot of beef stroganoff. You? Kathleen whipped up this healthier fare in just one pot. Winning! Find her blog at Kathleen’s Cravings and follow her on Instagram at @kathleenscravings!
Mmmmmm I’m currently imagining being curled up by a warm fire with a bowl of this vegan rice pudding. YUM. Thank you Maddie for this creation! Find her blog at Maddie Augustin and follow her on Instagram at @maddieaugustin!

This recipe is not only cozy and warm, but also really healthy. With 28 grams of protein per serving, this recipe is a favorite of mine that will leave you satisfied and satiated!
Turkey and Goat Cheese Meatballs in Roasted Tomato Marinara
This recipe just screams decadence… but without all the fat and calories of normal meatballs. Jamie, I am SO on board with this! Find Jamie’s blog at So Happy You Liked It and follow her on Instagram at @sohappyyoulikedit!
The perfect healthy comfort food meal is finished with a little dessert, right?! This Microwave Brownie Cake, by Hannah, is so simple to make and cleaner than the classic boxed brownie mix! Find her blog at Hannah Harvesting Health and follow her on Instagram at @hannahharvestinghealth!
