As a Certified Nutrition Specialist, I like to gain ways to prepare delicious foods that most community can’t rely on are actually healthy for you. If you have a sweet tooth like me, I’m certain you’ve tried to obtain ways to still enjoy sweet treats, but also try to make them healthier than normal junk food goodies.
The serious trouble with most so-called “healthy” desserts is that most companies attempt to make them healthier by lessening the fat content and thereby increasing the sugar volume or artificial sweeteners… there’s nothing healthy about either of those!
Below is my acclaimed healthy chocolate-peanut-butter fudge recipe that takes only 5 minutes to make and is really child’s play. The great thing is that I use no added sugars, no simulated sweeteners, and all healthy fat fountains. You’ll see why beneath.
My healthy chocolate-peanut-butter fudge recipe (peanut butter can be overlooked 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 volume)
4 or 5 Tbsp of your favorite organic nut butter (almond butter, cashew butter, peanut butter all work well)
2/3 to 3/4 cup of organic coconut milk (great fountain of healthy saturated fats from ambience chain triglycerides – MCTs)
2 tbsp rice bran (additional healthy fiber resource)
2 tbsp oat bran (more healthy fiber including soluble fiber)
1/2 cup raw pecans, almonds, or walnuts (yes, more healthy fats, antioxidants, and piles 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 natural non-caloric sweetener as opposed to mischievous plastic sweeteners)
Start with the coconut milk, nut butter, and chocolate bar in a medium 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 general fudge and has loads more nutrition than any normal fudge.
