Vegan Peanut Butter Fudge

Vegan Peanut Butter Fudge(AKA Stop PMS In Its Tracks – Annette)

I was in the mood for something chocolate, but I have been on a diet.  So, to make it as healthy as possible, I created something of my own.  Annette confiscated my first batch since she liked it so much 🙂

Note: This only makes 1 serving.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbsp. Chocolate PB2
  • 1 Tbsp. Honey (I prefer partially crystalized)
  • 1 Scoop Chocolate Protein Powder (1/2 a serving)
  • 1 Tbsp. Water
  • Handful of Vegan Chocolate Chips
  • Optional: 1 Tbsp. Chia Seeds (Gives it a crackle in your mouth, YUM!)

Peanut Butter Fudge Ingredients

Directions:

  1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl except Chocolate Chips and Chia Seeds.
  2. If it appears watery, add more PB2 or Protein powder until it is like cookie dough.
  3. Fold in Chocolate chips and Chia Seeds if you desire.
  4. Enjoy directly from the spoon.

I haven’t tried it yet, but I am thinking about baking these to see if they would make good cookies.  If you do it before I do, let me know how it turns out!

  3. Place muffin papers in a muffin tin then fill about 3/4 of the way full with mix.
  4. Bake about 18 min (Varies depending on oven and temp used. Follow Cake mix recipe.)  Muffins are done when a toothpick comes out clean.
