healthy chocolate pb fudge

Lately all my boys are taking turns getting sick.  Imagine a 6 year old, 5 year old, and 3 year old, all of them coughing, congested, and having fever.  Oh boy, house full of germs.  The homeschooling is on halt since my poor kids barely have strength to do anything.  They totally deserve a break.  ❤

On the other hand, I feel slightly congested so I’m loading up on echinacea, and washing my hands with hot water + antibacterial soap.  I seriously can’t afford to get sick when my little boys are down.

Anyhow, I am so tempted to make some amazing dessert but I don’t want to feed bacteria by eating sugar.   So, I decided to make some healthy fudge to keep me satisfied until the sickness leaves our home.

These are so good … good is actually an understatement, these are scrumptious.  I’m trying to have some self control so I don’t overeat.  Moderation is the key to good health, isn’t it?

If you look at the ingredients, you’ll be amazed at how clean and healthy this fudge recipe is.  It doesn’t have any refined sugar, so totally guiltless you see.   I love the combination of chocolate and peanut butter, who doesn’t?   And my favorite part?  The amazing nutty taste from coconut oil.  As you already know, I heart everything with coconut.

Whether you are on a diet or just feel like eating healthy dessert, then you can whip these up in less than 5 mins…freeze it for 10 mins…voila…ready to eat!   Pretty easy, eh?

Note:  If you’re not a fan of banana, feel free to replace with extra honey to sweeten it up.

You will need:

  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter, packed
  • 1 large banana
  • 1/3 cup packed dark cocoa powder (You can sub regular cocoa powder, just increase the amount slightly)
  • 2 tbsp honey (or sweetener of your choice)
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Line muffin pan with 10 cupcake liners.

Blend everything in your blender or food processor for 30 seconds, until all of it comes together. Pour the batter equally into the prepared liners.

Pop it in the freezer for 10 mins before eating.  Store in the refrigerator.
