A delicious dairy free coconut chocolate fudge made with coconut oil and almond or coconut milk. This low carb chocolate fudge makes a tasty fat bomb snack. This past week, the first day of spring arrived in Southeastern Connecticutwith more snow. It has been a very long and snowy winter in New England. I am longing for realspring weather. I want to be able to spend some time outside without feeling chilled to the bone. Im somewhat of a hermit during the winter because I have Raynauds disease which causes my toes to numb quickly. Even the walk from the car to my office building at work is enough time in the cold for my feet to numb, and it doesnt even have to be near freezing temperatures to affect me. Id love to move somewhere warmer, but my husband has a couple established local businesses that would be difficult to start up again if we moved. So, I stay and suffer through each brutal New England winter. With warmer temperatureson the horizon, I dont see myself having a lot of time for baking and complicated meals as Ill be spending more time outside of the house. With that in mind, Ive been collecting some quick and easy recipes that I can whip up in a matter of a few minutes. This dairy free coconut chocolate fudge recipe is one of those super simple recipes that takes less than five minutes to prepare. You literally just dump all the ingredients into a food processor or blender then spread it out in a parchment paper lined container. It hardens up in the refrigerator within an hour and th Continue reading >>

Sugar-free Raw Chocolate Fudge (vegan & Gluten-free)

Sugar-free Raw Chocolate Fudge (vegan & Gluten-free)

Sugar-Free Raw Chocolate Fudge (Vegan & Gluten-Free) I dont know about you but I am totally in love with chocolate. I am forever looking for ways to include my favourite ingredient in a healthy way because me and sugar dont get on. Sugar free treats are the way forward! Yesterday I came up with this genius idea. No sugar. No sugar alternative or sweetener, just one little old banana. The result of combining cashew nuts with coconut oil, banana and cacao is a dense fudge-like treat. And a sugar free treat that you dont need to feel too guilty about eating. When the kids came home from school with a friend it was with trepidation that I offered my invention to them. They can be so cruel after all. Rather than be rude about it they demolished the entire batch in the 2 minutes that my back was turned. Ill take that as a big thumbs up. Today Ive made these with goats butter instead of coconut oil. I omitted the cinnamon which I added to the coconut oil version partly to mask the flavour of the coconut, and the result is spectacular. I choose to use goats products or A2 milk these daysboth are thought to be far less inflammatory than normal cows milk and you get the natural calcium that they contain with none of the thickeners and other odd ingredients you find in dairy-free milk. I can control my eczema this way, but if you are allergic to dairy then goats products and A2 milk would not be suitable for you. Whichever ingredients you choose to use Im sure you wont be disappointed. If you were feeling particularly decadent you could include a few dark chocolate chipsnot for me because of the sugar, but it would certainly increase the wow factor even more! Ive created the recipe with a small number of ingredients. You could easily double or quadruple the recipe if you wanted t Continue reading >>

3 Ingredient Sugar-free Peanut Butter Fudge

3 Ingredient Sugar-free Peanut Butter Fudge

This Easy, 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Fudge is low carb, sugar free and dairy free! If I could eat peanut butter and chocolate every day I most certainly would. I don’t, but I’d love to be able to be…… you know that girl…….eat whatever she desires, doesn’t exercise, stays perfectly tiny, has a few babies, slims down without even trying……yeah, you have someone in your life like that just as we all do, am I right? I’ve never been blessed to have a skinny frame. I’ve never been able to eat whatever I’ve wanted to without consequences. I’ve had to work off every.single.pound of pregnancy weight. 3 times. Oh before babies I was able to lose weight effortlessly. I remember being fed up at 22. Being overweight and unhappy. Hating living in my own skin. I had just graduated college. I weighed 159 pounds on my 5 foot 2 and 1/2 inch frame. I was ready and I went for it for the first time with a healthy life style change. I exercised and ate nothing in between meals. I could still eat whatever I wanted, sugar included and in 6 months I was down to 124 pounds. But I was also 22. I am maintained that weight for 7 years before the first baby. That was then, this is now. And being 43, it’s a lot harder to lose without a concentrated effort. And has time has gone on, I’ve come to realize the things that worked to lose weight after my 3rd baby 9 years are not helping me working for me now. Bodies do change over time. I’ve come to the conclusion my body at this age needs a whole lot less carbs to see the scale move where I want it. That’s where this recipe comes in. If I’m cutting carbs to lose weight I need healthy fats to keep me satiated so I don’t turn to carbs. Hence, comes in the FAT BOMBS! Just a small piece is enough to make you feel satisfie Continue reading >>

Sugar Free Chocolate Fudge

Sugar Free Chocolate Fudge

Rich, chocolatey, homemade sugar free chocolate fudge – Hearing the words “sugar free” normally makes me think of cloyingly sweet, sucralose-laden desserts or beverages. Chemical sugars and I do not get along. As a little kid, I put Sweet-n-Low in my iced tea because my mom said it dissolved better than sugar. But after a few months of awful tummy aches, we determined Sweet-n-Low didn’t like me very much. The feeling is mutual; to me, foods with fake sugars tend to taste… well, fake. But this sugar free chocolate fudge has no fake sugar. It only has real ingredients, which is perhaps why it tastes so incredible! You’ll find no Darth Vaders lurking here in this rich, decadent, melt-in-your-mouth sugar free chocolate fudge. No, in my little world of chocolate, everything is turned upside down, and dark equals light. I hope you will fall in love with this recipe like I have! Sugar Free Chocolate Fudge Don’t forget the variations: Mint-Chocolate, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Cookie Dough… there are so many I still want to try! 5/5 (6) Continue reading >>

Chocolate-fudge Pudding Cake Recipe - Eatingwell

Chocolate-fudge Pudding Cake Recipe - Eatingwell

Preheat oven to 350F. Coat a 1- to 2-quart baking dish with cooking spray. Whisk whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, sugar (or Splenda Sugar Blend), cocoa, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Whisk egg, milk, oil and vanilla in a glass measuring cup. Add to the flour mixture; stir with a rubber spatula until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips, if using. Scrape the batter into the prepared baking dish. Mix hot coffee and brown sugar (or Splenda Granular) in the measuring cup and pour over the batter. Sprinkle with nuts. (It may look strange at this point, but don't worry. During baking, cake forms on top with sauce underneath.) Bake the pudding cake until the top springs back when touched lightly, 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool for at least 10 minutes. Dust with confectioners' sugar and serve hot or warm Ingredient Notes: Whole-wheat pastry flourthe whole-grain equivalent of cake flouradds fiber and a rich, nutty taste. Substituting with Splenda: In the EatingWell Test Kitchen, sucralose is the only alternative sweetener we test with when we feel the option is appropriate. For nonbaking recipes, we use Splenda Granular (boxed, not in a packet). For baking, we use Splenda Sugar Blend for Baking, a mix of sugar and sucralose. It can be substituted in recipes ( cup of the blend for each 1 cup of sugar) to reduce sugar calories by half while maintaining some of the baking properties of sugar. If you make a similar blend with half sugar and half Splenda Granular, substitute this homemade mixture cup for cup. When choosing any low- or no-calorie sweetener, be sure to check the label to make sure it is suitable for your intended use. I was looking for a heart-healthy cake for my husband's birthday.....he loves chocolate so I decided to give this a try. I used the sugar s Continue reading >>

Chocolate Walnut Keto Fudge

Chocolate Walnut Keto Fudge

Simply the best and easiest chocolate walnut keto fudge you will ever find. Even my 8 year old whips this up. He has also on occasion omitted the walnuts and added peppermint flavouring instead – genius boy! Now with a new cooking video so you can see for yourself how easy it is to make chocolate and walnut keto fudge. I know we are trying to give up the sweet taste and sweet foods, but every now and again we crave something and I’d rather have a sugar free version at hand than a high carb alternative. These chocolate and walnut keto fudge squares are really quick to make and incredibly simple. Also for some people starting out, having a low carb sweet treat may be just the thing to get them started, or get them interested. Click To Tweet They take only 10 minutes to prepare, then pop them in the fridge to set (or heaven forbid you eat some of the mixture as soon as it is made ). I added walnuts because it seems that is the number one addition you guys add to my chocolate mint truffles and my nut free keto brownie, so I thought a walnut fudge recipe was required here. What flavour would you like me to develop next? Leave a comment at the end of the post. UPDATE – it appears some people are making this with spreadable, or tub, cream cheese and it is not setting. You must use the regular Philadelphia cream cheese in a block for the best results. Another tip, to speed up the fudge to set, pop it in the freezer then you have a quick frozen treat/dessert.

This ensures that I can have easy fudge in 10 minutes! This milk is good for so many things! (Think Almond Joy Cookies and Homemade Coffee Creamer .) Delicious!

Sugar Free Five Minute Microwave Fudge

Sugar Free Five Minute Microwave Fudge

Ive based this Sugar Free Five Minute Microwave Fudge on a recipe that my mom gave me years ago. It was basically semisweet chips, condensed sweetened milk, and flavorings which were microwaved and poured into a dish lined with plastic wrap then nuts were added and it was chilled. You had to make it ahead and allow for chill time, but when it was done you had a first class fudge that could not have been easier. My mom and I would try to see who could sign up for the fudge first at gatherings and I only recently discovered that I might have been the only one in the family with whom shed shared that recipe. It wasnt until reading the original Trim Healthy Mama book that I figured out my mom was really a Drive Thru Sue! Born out of season, so to speak, she specialized in making wonderful meals that were based on quick to fix recipes. She was throwing together those easy peasy five ingredient meals back when all the other country cooks were working hard to make dishes more difficult than they had to be; she was able to make them taste about the same, but much easier and we all loved them! I have never been that sort of cook because as a Farm Fresh Tess I actually enjoy making everything from scratch. But for this recipe I really wanted to just zap it together for a fast, fun, treat and not bother trying to make a condensed milk at this point. This Sugar Free Five Minute Microwave Fudge was adapted by just messing around with sweetener, cream, and Lilys chocolate chips. It worked splendidly and my husband, the fudge lovinest guy of all time is insisting that it is almost as good as regular fudge, a little different, but almost indiscernible because its so smooth, sweet, and creamy chocolate! If you want to make a fudge with a sugar free homemade condensed milk you can tryth Continue reading >>
