Made with just 4 ingredients, this healthy chocolate fudge is a creamy, mouth-watering delight. Gluten free, dairy free and no refined sugar.
When you think fudge, you don’t think healthy usually huh? This is a recently discovered special treat that just perfectly satisfies when the chocolate craving hit It’s quick to whip up and store in the refrigerator for when you need a little sweet chocolatey fix.
HEALTHY CHOCOLATE FUDGE
Even more convenient is that I usually have all the ingredients already on hand. Just sayin’.
What makes it healthy? It’s much lower in sugar by using a more natural sweetener, maple syrup. It is also loaded with healthy fats, which of course in moderation, are a wonderful part of your daily diet. (Learn how I track this down below.)
Healthy doesn’t mean it’s low calorie. This is a special treat. But luckily, like I have said before, you can fit these kinds of treats in when you plan for them in your day.
As for the chocolatey goodness, my husband recently bought a bag of pure Cacao (not Cocoa). I seriously had to google the difference. While both cocoa and cacao have healthy benefits such as fiber and flavonoids, raw cacao is far better. Raw cacao is an excellent source of magnesium and iron.
Wondering how I track this lusciousness? My Fitness Pal app has a recipe feature that is wonderful! I create a new recipe and enter (or scan) each ingredient and how many grams of each I add to the recipe. It’s simple to just place your bowl on the scale and zero out the scale after recording a new ingredient.
Then I actually weigh the entire batch after it has finished setting in the refrigerator and then enter that number in as the total number of servings in My Fitness Pal app. (for example, this batch weighed 260 grams so I entered 260 servings)
When I want to indulge, I just weigh whatever size piece I want and enter the amount of grams in as the number of servings I had. If the piece I weigh is 15 grams, then I enter that I had 15 servings of the healthy chocolate fudge recipe.
