Fudge is one of the sweetest and most delicious treats one can eat, but it contains a shocking amount of sugar and will send the sugar levels of anyone who eats it sky high. Those on a low carb or Banting diet might feel deprived as they try to stay away from these kinds of foods and this might lead to a binge down the road. Luckily there are plenty of healthy ingredients that we can use to come up with low carb and Banting versions of our favourite treats.
Here is a recipe for tasty Banting Chocolate Almond Fudge.
1 cup Almond butter
¼ cup coconut oil
¼ cup raw cocoa powder
¼ c. Xylitol OR honey
½ tsp vanilla extract
Pinch Himalayan salt
Melt the coconut oil and then place all the ingredients together in a bowl and mix well until smooth. Taste the mixture to see if you need to add extra sweetener. Place a baking sheet into a baking pan and pour the mixture in. Place the pan in the freezer for several hours until hard. Remove from freezer and cut fudge into squares. Store the fudge in an air tight container in the freezer as it will become soft at warmer temperatures.
