Hello, hello friends!
Who loves fudge?
Ha-ha, silly question, you all do! (and if you don't... you do ;)
If you're here at Steph 2 chef on a consistent basis, you may have noticed I have a slight obsession with truffles. Of any kind.
Lemon, blueberry and coconut truffles:
Even bright pink berry truffles:
And whilst these truffles satisfy every craving I seem to have, this morning I needed something a little... FUDGIER!
See in all of my truffle recipes I use whole rolled oats and keep all of the other add-ins basically whole as well (nuts, dried furit etc.) but then my mind had a flash of a smooth, rich, creamy, dense bite of fudge and I knew this morning's truffle recipe was going to have a few minor adjustments.
I guess the adjustments turned out rather major because I believe the recipe I created is actually considered fudge!
Now, try to keep the drool in your mouth, if you will. ;)
Filled with the goodness of rolled oats (all whazzed up for that creamy, fudge texture), fiber and natural sweetness of dates, banana, raw cacao powder, super greens protein powder, coconut butter and cinnamon...
These do not taste healthy! And yet, you can still consume 6 large bites for brekky with no guilt AT ALL!
really bossy lately!)
Rich Chocolate Fudge Bites- High Protein and Vegan
1/2 heaped cup oats
3/4 medium banana, chopped
4 pitted dates
1 scoop choc protein powder
1 heaped teaspoon raw cacao powder
1/2 teaspoon chia seeds
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 heaped tablespoon coconut butter
2 tablespoons almond milk
1. Place the oats, cacao and protein powder, chia seeds, cinnamon and banana and dates in a small-medium food processor:
4.Add in the rest of the coconut butter and keep processing (and stopping and scarping) until the mixture turns smooth and fully combined(it may seem a little wet, but it will harden up in the freezer):
6. Place on plate and pop plate in the freezer for around 15-20 minutes to firm up (or as long as you need)
Do you like fudge? I actually do know quite a few people who can't handle it. Crazy.
What's your favourite type of fudge? I remember as a child absolutely devouring this white chocolate and MnM fudge my aunty made. The thought alone makes my teeth hurt!
What would make the ultimate truffle? I'm still convinced nothing beats lemon blueberry!
That's all from me today folks, I hope you have a lovely day and enjoy all the little things that would otherwise go unnoticed! Oh, and don't foget to eat something delicious!! Bye for now friends :D.
