Chocolate Peppermint Protein Fudge

Chocolate Peppermint Protein Fudge

That wonderful “F” word…FUDGE!  It’s a holiday season favorite of many.  That rich melt in your mouth flavor and sweet tooth banishing treat tastes wonderful but with all the excess fat, sugar and carbs its not the best option for your waistline (or blood sugar!)  If you’ve been following me for a while you know I love my sweets which is why I wanted to create a guilt free indulgence that shared that rich chocolate taste as fudge, crushed my sweets craving like fudge but did not pack crazy amounts of sugar, fats and carbs like fudge.

This fudge literally takes 5 mins to make (not kidding!!)  So it’s a great treat to whip up for that sweet tooth emergency or to make for an office party or potluck to ensure you will have a healthy snack you can enjoy.

 

Ingredients

1C Milk Chocolate Level-1 Protein Powder (available HERE)

1/3C Natural Creamy Peanut Butter (I recommend JIF or Skippy)

6 Tablespoons Unsweetened Cocoa Powder

1/3C Stevia

Unsweetened Almond Milk (approx 7 Tablespoons)

1/4C Coconut Flour

1/4 teaspoon Peppermint Extract

Sprinkles (optional)

Waxpaper lined 9×5 loaf pan

Directions:

Using a food processor, combine protein, peanut butter,  cocoa, stevia and peppermint extract.   Mix on high until all items are combined and powdery.

Next, add in the almond milk 1 Tablespoon at a time and pulse until ingredients begin to stick together a bit (mine took 5 Tablespoons of milk.  If using a different brand of protein it may take more or less so add 1 Tablespoon at a time until ingredients are well combined and lightly stick together.

Add in the coconut flour and mix on high until combined.  Then add additional almond milk, again, 1 Tablespoon at a time (mine took 2 Tablespoons. You want it damp enough to lightly pinch the batter together and it holds well.

Pour batter into waxpaper lined loaf pan and pat down until even.  Add sprinkles to the top of fudge and press down lightly to adhere sprinkles to fudge.

Lift waxpaper and fudge from loaf pan and slice into 32 pieces.  Place in an airtight container and store at room temperature.
