About the Recipe

If you're reading this you probably love chocolate. I bet your kids love chocolate, too!

If you're looking for a chocolately snack that serves a purpose beyond just taste, this recipe is for you. You'll be shocked at how delicious & satisfying this functional recipe truly is.

Made with peanut butter, nuts & seeds, this sweet fudge is processed more slowly in the body, meaning you're less likely to experience a blood sugar spike & crash AND you'll be getting some longer-lasting energy.

Ingredients

  • 8x8 baking pan

  • 2 cups of semi sweet chocolate chips/chunks

  • 1 cup peanut butter (I use smooth, all-natural)

  • 1 tsp ground flax (optional... I add it for additional fibre & Omega-3s)


to mix in/sprinkle on top:

  • crushed walnuts

  • pumpkin seeds

  • the opportunities are endless here.... use whatever nuts or seeds you'd like!


Preparation

  1. Grease 8x8 pan

  2. On medium heat, stir together chocolate chunks & peanut butter until completely melted and blended

  3. Pour into 8x8 pan

  4. Sprinkle crushed nuts & seeds on top

  5. Place in freezer to set for 30 mins


Store these in the fridge for consuming in the next few days, or, keep them in the freezer and grab one for a post-dinner snack (they thaw/soften in minutes!)
