Fudge That’s Actually Good For You

April 5, 2013

Last week I posted a photo (on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook) and asked “Would you believe me if I told you we made fudge that is actually good for you? Because we did.” So I thought I’d share my recipe with you! And since it’s Friday, I thought it would be the perfect weekend treat.

OK, so here’s the thing. I am the kind of girl who can eat whatever I want, and it doesn’t show. Which is a blessing and a curse, because that means I eat anything I want. But I still have had some health problems—like migraines. So I decided to visit a nutritionist to see what foods are triggers for me not feeling well. This has led to some changes in my diet. One major one is sugar. Ahem. So after 2 days, I was going through major withdrawals and needed something to help me out. Well, first we made chocolate syrup (so I could have chocolate milk!). I used this recipe and replaced the sugar with honey. So then we decided to make this fudge that Bob made about a year ago for the first time. But I didn’t love that recipe. It was a little too dark for me. So, we decided to throw some peanut butter in to make it a bit more creamy. And while we’re still perfecting the recipe, it’s pretty dang good the way it is. Not to mention it is actually good for you! And since this is not a health blog, I’ve linked the ingredients to more information on how they are all healthy foods.

    Being a long time reader of your blog, I know you’ve played around with eliminating gluten….as a former migraine sufferer, taking this out of my diet (although hard) was LIFE CHANGING! And even better- this recipe is naturally GF!

    yeah, the gluten I am less afraid of than sugar. ugh! i have a major sweet tooth, so i’m living off this fudge! ha! but i do think it’ll help. thanks for the encouragement!

    Yah…sugar is something I struggle with too. I don’t eat it a lot, but when we have company or go out of town, I start eating more of it, and then I go crazy!
