Chocolate Lovers Look No Further!

Doesn’t sound like a healthy treat does it?

So Is ‘Low Fat’ Really Healthy?

Recent research is uncovering that ‘low fat’ actually means more sugar. Start reading your food labels carefully. There is nothing healthy about increased in sugar content or artificial sweetener!

So if you are like me and have a sweet tooth then take a look at this fudge recipe…

Healthy Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge Recipe

Ingredients:

•1/2 cup raw pecans, almonds, or walnuts
•4 or 5 tbsp of your favorite organic nut butter (try cashew butter, almond butter, peanut butter)
•Extra dark chocolate bar
•2/3 to 3/4 cup of organic coconut milk (great source of healthy saturated fats)
•2 tbsp rice bran (source of additional fiber source)
•2 tbsp oat bran (healthy fiber including soluble fiber)
•1/2 cup raw pecans, almonds, or walnuts (contains antioxidants, and vitamins/minerals)
•1/2 cup dried cranberries or raisins (optional)
•1 tsp vanilla extract
•a little stevia to lightly sweeten (stevia is a natural non-caloric sweetener, see description below)

Method:

Melt chocolate bar, nut butter and coconut milk in a medium saucepan with low heat (I prefer to use a bowl over boiling water in a saucepan. This helps prevent the chocolate and other ingredients from burning)

Continuously stir with a wooden spoon or whisk.

Once all the ingredients have melted add the remaining ingredients.

Spread the mixture out on baking paper in a baking dish. Ensure the ingredients have mixed well together so you can spread the mixture into the prepared baking dish.

Place the baking dish into the fridge until the mixture solidifies.

Simple!

Stevia substitute

You may have seen Stevia in many healthy recipes as an alternative to sugar. So I thought I would help explain it a little more for you. The Stevia plant is said to be 300 times sweeter than sugar. The positives to using Stevia instead of sugar is it barely has any effect on blood glucose levels and contains no calories.

You can buy Stevia from Health Food Stores and as well as many supermarkets.

Portion control

This delightful treat is still calorie dense but is super healthy so keep serving sizes small and use as a mid-afternoon tasty treat to see you through to dinner. This great news is that the fudge is lower in calories and sugar than fudge you would typically purchase in a store.
