Craving something sweet? I always am!!! When we eat real food like fruit, honey, and dates, not only do we satisfy our craving for something sweet, but we are actually providing our body with important nutrients! Real sugars found in whole foods come with fiber and water to help slow the absorptions of the sugars to keep blood sugar steady.
Check out this simple and delicious recipe from Jennifer Ostman, Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, for peanut butter fudge. It is sure to delight the whole family – with none of the guilt as long as you enjoy in moderation. 😉
- 85% pure dark chocolate bars (I used 1 1/2 bars)
- 3 Tbsp unsalted grass-fed butter
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup nut butter of your choice
- In a small saucepan, warm the chocolate, butter, and coconut oil until completely melted.
- Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla and nut butter until smooth.
- Let cool a few moments. While cooling, grease a sheet of parchment paper and place inside an 8×8 or 9×9 baking dish.
- Pour chocolate mixture into lined baking dish and refrigerate overnight.
- The next day you can simply pull the parchment paper out of the baking dish and break apart the chocolate!
- Be sure to keep it all in the fridge, cause this stuff will melt fast!
