As a Certified Nutrition Specialist, I like to obtain ways to endow enjoyable foods that most general public can’t conceive are in fact healthy for you. If you have a sweet tooth like me, I’m definite you’ve tried to find ways to still have the benefit or use of sweet treats, but also try to make them healthier than typical junk food desserts.
The major problem with most so-called “healthy” sweets is that most companies attempt to make them healthier by lowering the fat content and thereby increasing the sugar volume or bogus sweeteners… there’s nothing healthy about one or the other of those!
Below is my extraordinary healthy chocolate-peanut-butter fudge recipe that takes only 5 minutes to make and is really effortless. The great thing is that I use no added sugars, no fake sweeteners, and all healthy fat resources. You’ll see why below.
My healthy chocolate-peanut-butter fudge recipe (peanut butter can be precluded if you prefer plain chocolate):
Extra dark chocolate bar (3-4 oz bar works well — look for at least 70% cocoa volume, between 70-85% — this minimizes the sugar content)
4 or 5 Tbsp of your adored organic nut butter (almond butter, cashew butter, peanut butter all work well)
2/3 to 3/4 cup of organic coconut milk (great resource of healthy saturated fats from medium chain triglycerides – MCTs)
2 tbsp rice bran (additional healthy fiber stock)
2 tbsp oat bran (more healthy fiber including soluble fiber)
1/2 cup raw pecans, almonds, or walnuts (yes, more healthy fats, antioxidants, and tons of vitamins/minerals)
1/2 cup dried cranberries or raisins (optional based on your tastes)
1 tsp vanilla extract
a little stevia to lightly sweeten (stevia is a normal non-caloric sweetener as against to toxic artificial sweeteners)
Start with the coconut milk, nut butter, and chocolate bar in an ambience saucepan and put it on the lowest heat possible. Continuously stir as the chocolate, coconut milk, and nut butter melts together. Once these melt together add in all of the other ingredients and stir together very well.
Once everything is mixed well together, spread the mixture onto some waxed paper laid out in a baking dish and throw it in the fridge to solidify.
Now you have some of the healthiest chocolate fudge ever known to man!
Keep in mind that you still need to keep your serving portions small because this is still a calorie-dense snack even though it is super-healthy. The good news is that it is lower in sugar and calories than typical fudge and has loads more nutrition than any usual fudge.
