I’m back with a chocolate vengeance, this time with a new tasty GUILT-FREE decadent chocolate recipe. (a variation of my Gracious Living Raw, Vegan Monkey Fudge: click HERE.)
All my recipes are guilt-free.
YES, it’s true!
Why you ask? How you ask? Because every single ingredient I use in ALL my recipes has a beneficial effect on the body. I will only use ingredients, whether big, or small, that promote health and healing in your body. I only ever use ingredients that speed up your metabolism, burn fat, and detoxify the body. I only ever use ingredients that I eat regularly myself. I only create recipes that nourish my cells and make me feel good. And then I share them with you!
Love the foods that love you back!
Ok, let’s get to it! All you need my friends is:
Gracious Living (Raw, Vegan) Chocolate Mint Pistachio Squares
2 tbsp raw cacao powder
1/2 cup raw almond butter(or all natural peanut butter, or try it with raw tahini)
2-3 tbsp maple syrup, or yacon syrup
1.5 tbsp raw maca powder(great as an anti-stress and anti-anxiety superfood)
1.5 tbsp flax oil (I used Barleans chocolate mint swirl flax oil)
2 tbsp room temperature raw coconut oil
1 tbsp PURE liquid vanilla (artificial vanilla contains CORN SYRUP! YIKES! get the real deal!)
8 leaves of finely chopped mint OR 1 drop PURE peppermint oil (pure peppermint oil is very strong…don’t use too much)
sprinkle sea salt
TOPPING: 3/4 cup shelled raw, pistachios
*Mix well in a bowl with a wooden spoon until nice and creamy. (No need for equipment!)
*Line baking dish with parchment paper.
*Place mixture in dish lined with paper. Spread evenly so that it will freeze into a flat mixture that is not too thick….like a thin bar.
Top with shelled, raw pistachios. Press them into the top with the back of your spoon so they are embedded in there.
Freeze for a few hours.
Cut into small pieces and enjoy your guilt-free fudge that is good for your heart, good for your brain, good for your skin, and good for your happiness! They are decadent…don’t go overboard on them. A little bit will satisfy you immensely. A nice treat to always have in the freezer.
YUM YUM YUM! Everyone loves these. Guaranteed.
