Clean Eating: Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge

I'm doing pretty good on the clean eating train. My biggest downfall is, and has always been, my massive sweet tooth. I decided that I needed to crack down and come up with some clean options that satisfy that without binging on sugar. Since I've eaten nearly the entire container (guilt free, I might add) I think this is a success. 

All the ingredients are just blended together. It's kind of hard to blend it, as it is thick. I had to scrape the sides a few times, but it got pretty smooth.

When it's all blended, you'll have a thick blog like this.

Press it into a pan lined with wax or parchment paper and chill. If you like the pieces thick like they are pictured above, use a small pan. I actually used a pyrex storage container that is about 6x4.

Chill for at least an hour and slice into squares. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator with parchment in-between, if you stack them.

You WILL NOT be sorry you made these. I've grabbed a couple after a workout, as a mid morning snack and after dinner treat. I may have had a couple with my breakfast yesterday. They really are good for you, so you don't have to feel guilty! 

Ingredients:

1 cup Oats
1 cup smooth Peanut Butter (I use natural pb without any sugar added)
1 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
2 Tbsp Coconut Oil
3 Tbsp Milk (you could use almond, rice or whatever kind you drink)
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/3 cup Honey

Blend, press, chill and serve! Enjoy!

  2. I don't think I can express in words how happy this post has made me. I am gluten and dairy free in order to nurse my 9 month old, and am of the belief that there is no better combo than peanut butter and chocolate. I need a dessert to bring to all of our Memorial Day festivities, and in all honesty my go to dessert is a scoop of peanut butter on a piece of dairy free dark chocolate. This seems far more presentable :)

  4. Amazing!! Thank you for posting this recipe. I am trying to eat as clean as possible, but like you, I too have a massive sweet tooth. I can't get enough chocolate, so hopefully this will help.

    If you have any other clean eating recipes I would absolutely appreciate them.

  6. Made these this morning with my kids. We all LOVE them!! The only thing is that I think I should have tried blending the oats first, before adding in the other ingredients. It may have blended easier. Otherwise, they are awesome!

    Thanks!
