Dates are what I like to call nature’s candy, they are full of plant-based fiber and natural sugar, and have a caramelly gooey-ness to them that cannot be duplicated. The roasted almond butter brings a dose of healthy fats into the mix, unsaturated fats that can help lower blood cholesterol and fight against heart disease. A win-win!
Want to make this a chocolate fudge??
Simply add a little less almond butter, and 2-3 TBSP cup raw cacao powder and 1-2 TBSP of raw cacao nibs to give it a smooth, chocolatey flavor! That will be my next treat to make for Christmas time…maybe I’ll even add a little peppermint oil to the mix to have some mint chocolate fudge…oh the ideas are flowing!
