Treat Yourself with Heathier Chocolate Fudge

In the hot summer month like this, I crave nothing else but cold desserts. While frozen yogurt and ice cream are perfect summer treats, it is easy to overeat sugar. In the past few months, I have successfully unfriended cupcake, cake, cookies and brownie from my life and I don't miss them one bit. However, I still am a good friend with Fro-Yo and pie at least once a week.

Thanks to the talented Healthy Bloggers out there and many inspirations on the Instagram, I am amazed at how you can make healthier desserts without compromising the look and flavor these days. I mean you can't expect the healthier version to taste exactly the same as traditional desserts made with good old butter, margarine and white sugar but hey they satisfy the sweet tooth and that suffices. They taste like ice cream bar + chocolate fudge to me. Definitely satisfy my chocolate craving yet feel light. The husband gave it thumbs down but my daughter and I liked them. Boo..who cares what he thinks, right? He is a hardcore dessert guy so quite impossible to convince him to eat stuff like this.

When I first came across this Healthy Eatmore Fudge Squares, it looked too chocolaty to be true I kept dreaming about them. I lightly adept the recipe by cutting the amount of nuts and add oats instead. Although this is healthier than regular chocolate fudge, you still want to consume them in moderation. Just like everything else, I strongly believe moderation is the key. Too much of something is not good even fruit or veggies. I personally prefer a well balanced diet.

My Version
(adept from the original recipe)

1 cup Pitted dates (soak in warm water for 30 mins)
1/4 cup Almonds, unsalted
1/4 cup Walnuts, unsalted
1/2 cup Old fashioned oatmeal
1/4 cup Unsweetened cocoa powder

¼ cup Unsweetened cocoa powder
2 Ripe Banana
2 tablespoons Peanut Butter
2 tablespoons Raw Honey
A hint of Vanilla extract

Pour over a prepared crust and store in a freezer at least an hour (I brought it out at 40 mins and it didn't set quite well yet)

  1. Omg I'm mouthwatering so hard! Thank you for the recipe, I might try it soon :)


  2. looks so delicious. i'm saving this for the future. i hope i really get around to making it myself!

  3. This looks yummy and I love that it doesn't contain any sugar. I've been seeing alot of recipes for fudge and chocolate type desserts using avocados and maple syrup lately.

    Thanks I hope my ankle will be back to 100% soon as well. It's about 90% now and I have to be good so as not to regress from the progress I've made.
