Sugar Freedom Week 1, Day 4
I’ve been having the worst chocolate cravings. For like the last few … months. I’ve been on the hunt for a healthy chocolate solution, and I think I finally found it on Swiss Paleo‘s blog.
It’s (drumroll please) chocolate fudge! With no added sugar!
Actually, the fudge is just one-third of Swiss Paleo’s recipe. The writers came up with an a-MAZ-ing healthy version of Almond Joy bars, and the first layer is fudge-y goodness.
If you’re feeling like making the full recipe, click here (you won’t regret it!). But if you’re just in the mood for a quick chocolate fix, grab your food processor and get pulsing!
Healthy Fudge Squares
1 cup almonds
8-10 large medjool dates, pitted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons cocoa powder
Mix all ingredients in a food processor. If mixture is too dry, add a splash or two of water until a dough ball forms.
Press mixture into the bottom of a resealable container. Cut into squares for portion control (believe me, it’ll take so much self-control to not eat the whole batch).
