Chocolate Cravings Solved

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.

Healthy Fudge Squares

Ingredients

1 cup almonds

8-10 large medjool dates, pitted

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon salt

4 tablespoons cocoa powder

Directions

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).

  1. Hi there! Glad you liked this recipe 🙂 I often just make the bottom part and roll it into balls. Sometimes I roll the balls in coconut. The little fudge balls freeze really well.
