This healthy homemade fudge packs a powerful protein punch not only because of the peanut butter, but also because of the beans! Along with the nourishing and grounding nutrition of coconut oil, these are not only nutrient dense, but a delicious treat you can feel great about serving up as a lovely afternoon or after dinner snack!
What you will need:
3/4 cup of dried navy beans
1 cup peanut/almond butter
4-6 Tbsp honey
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
1 cup coconut oil
warmed to a liquid on the stove.
alteration: use butter instead of coconut oil or a combination of the two
How to do it:
1) Soak beans overnight in plenty of water plus a splash of apple cider vinegar, then the discard water and cook in a crock pot with fresh water on low for 8 hours.
2) Rinse cooked beans and process with remaining ingredients.
3) Spread into a pie plate or other suitable dish (a la your desire) and then refrigerate until firm.
4) Cut into small pieces and serve immediately or layer into a food storage container with parchment or wax paper in between the layers.
