Frozen fudgy goodness. This recipe was adapted from Stuft Mama’s 3 ingredient fudge. I made the 3 ingredient fudge, which was really good. The recipe was 1/2 banana frozen, 2 tbsp. raw cacao powder and 2 tbsp. peanut butter all blended together and then frozen. So easy, so good, then I thought, wow, I could take this from really good to over the top. And I did. My version tastes like a Chunky Bar…remember those?
Okay, so here goes:
- 1.5 bananas (frozen, thawed or fresh)
- 6 tbsp. Unsweetened Unsalted Almond Butter
- 4 tbsp. Raw Cacao Powder
- 1 scoop (about 2tbsp) chocolate soy protein powder
- 1/4 chopped raw almonds
- 1/4 raisins
- 2 tbsp. chia seeds
- 1/4 cup unsweetened dried coconut flakes
Place banana, almond butter, cacao, and protein into blender or small food processor. Blend until smooth. Stir in, by hand, chopped almonds, raisins, chia seeds and dried coconut. I used silicone regular sizeheart muffin cups, you can line cupcake pans with paper, or used anything you know you can pop out of the freezer into a whole piece. The silicone work great!!!!! Fill them 1/3 full, and place cups on a tray or baking sheet. Once they are all filled, pop them into the freezer fpr a few hours until they are firm. When they are firm you can take them out and put them into a freezer bag. I kept mine in the silicone, but it is not necessary.
These are big, fudgy, decadent tasting treats that are truly sinfully nutritious. I will warn you, you must eat them frozen, they melt quick. These could be made into fudge pops too. The possibilities are endless. I am going to try making mini bites in silicone ice cube trays or candy molds next time for tiny treat. I eat one of these through out the day. I bite after each meal! These are a perfect treat and are healthy candy alternative that are even packed with superfoods! I really hope you give these a try. Let me know how you like them!
