My 5 Minute Healthy Chocolate Fudge Recipe - Yes It's Healthy

As a Certified Nutritionist, I love finding ways to provide delicious foods that most people may not believe are really healthy for you. If you have a sweet tooth like mine, I'm sure you've tried to find a way to keep it sweet, but also try to make it healthier than regular snacks.

The main problem with most common desserts is that most companies try to make them healthier by reducing their fat content and thus increasing their sugar content or artificial sweeteners ... there is nothing healthy about any of them!

Below is a famous chocolate-peanut-butter fudge recipe that only takes 5 minutes to make and is really easy. The interesting thing is that I do not use any extra sugars, no artificial sweeteners, and all sources of healthy fat. You'll see why below.

My sweet chocolate-bean fudge recipe (Peanut butter can be left out if you prefer plain chocolate):

  • Extra dark chocolate bars (3-4 bar bars work well - look for at least 70% cocoa content, between 70-85% - this reduces sugar content)

  • 4 or 5 tablespoons of your favorite peanut butter (almond butter, butter butter, peanut butter all work well)

  • 2/3 to 3/4 cup of organic coconut milk (a healthy source of saturated fat from simple chain triglycerides - MCT)

  • 2 tablespoons rice bran (additional healthy fiber source)

  • 2 tablespoons oat bran (healthier fiber including soluble fiber)

  • 1/2 cup raw pecans, almonds, or walnuts (yes, healthier fats, antioxidants, and more vitamins / minerals)

  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries or raisins (optional depending on your taste)

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • light stevia for light sweetening (stevia is a natural non-calorie sweetener as opposed to harmful artificial sweeteners)

Start with coconut milk, peanut butter, and chocolate bars in a medium saucepan and place on low heat. Always stir because chocolate, coconut milk, and melted peanut butter together. After melting together add all the other ingredients and mix well.

Once everything is mixed well, spread the mixture on some coated paper that is laid out in the baking dish and toss in the refrigerator to strengthen.

Now you have some of the healthiest chocolate fudges humans have ever known!

Keep in mind that you still need to keep a small portion of your meal as it is still a calorie-free snack even though it is healthy. The good news is that it is lower in sugar and calories than a typical fudge and has more nutrition than any normal fudge.
