Sometimes you just want to indulge a bit and that’s when peanut butter almond chocolate fudge steps in and helps you to satisfy those cravings for chocolate and sweets. Being gluten free, refined sugar free, vegan and even raw, you can enjoy a bite or two (or a full tray) without guilt but enjoying all the health benefits of nuts, almonds and raw chocolate. What more you can ask for a sweet treat, I just ask??
The best thing about giving up white sugar is that I don’t crave for sweets at all the times anymore. It was sooo stressfull and exhausting to have to feel guilty at the same time I was planning what to stuff myself with after I had put the kids a sleep in the evening. The more candy, chocolate and cinnamon buns I had, the more I wanted them and the more bad I felt about myself. Although those days are in the past I still sometimes get enormous cravings for chocolate. I always keep the ingredients for raw chocolate at home but do you know what? I don’t but any sweetening in it! That’s right, I just don’t feel it needs it. 🙂 I did use some maple syrup for the fudge and you could actually even put some more, taste it before chilling it to be sure it’s to your taste.
