Cookie Dough Fudge

It’s tough to be a foodie, a chocoholic, and an athlete at the same time!  So yes, I need to stay fit, wanna stay healthy, and I have to indulge! (especially during the holidays.) So what’s a girl to do when faced with this kind of dilemma?  As I always say, it’s all about choices. So I’m always on the lookout for healthy options or, makeovers of my favorite not-so-healthy foods.  I stumbled upon this website recently (thank you John Romaniello), and I will be back!! It’s called (clever!) There are some fabulous recipes there-most of which you could make a case for being healthier versions of some of your favorites.  But this one….oh…this one stole my heart :) ….  rescued this fudge


                                 Cookie Dough Fudge


For the Cookie Dough

1 cup Almond Meal Flour
3 Tbsp Honey
¼  tsp Sea Salt
½  tsp. Vanilla extract
1½  Tbsp. Coconut Butter
1½  Tbsp. Coconut Oil

For the Fudge

½  cup Raw Almond or Cashew Butter
½  cup Raw Coconut Butter (Not coconut oil!!)
¼  cup Dark Cocoa Powder
1 tsp. Vanilla
½  tsp. Salt
2 Tbsp Raw Honey


Beat the ingredients for the cookie dough together, then set aside.

Do the same for the fudge.

In an 8×8 dish lined with parchment paper, press half of the fudge mixture into the bottom. Press all of the cookie dough on top (it doesn’t have to be pretty, don’t worry). Then press on the last half of the fudge.

Refrigerate for 2-3 hours, or until firm. Or you can just start spooning it out right then, I won’t judge.

*Note: You can substitute maple syrup for honey if you’d like a Vegan option _________________________________________________________________________________
