One of my favorite recipes here on the NS Blog has to be the Feel Amazing Fudge.
This healthy fudge recipe proves that a few pantry staples can come together for an irresistible treat that satisfies you and leaves you feeling great long after you’ve enjoyed it. Not to mention, this Holiday Feel Amazing Fudge is a simple and festive recipe that you can add to your batch cooking list on meal prep day or during the holiday weekend for sweet treats to share.
This healthy dessert recipe at its core has been something I’ve enjoyed for years. It’s an easy way to satisfy a sweet tooth in a healthy way, keeps hunger at bay, and it’s a recipe you can make ahead on meal prep day with ingredients you probably already have stocked in your pantry. Do you remember the popular Mint Chocolate Feel Amazing Fudge? Today’s recipe is just as good and has a similar recipe but with a couple added festive additions to make it crowd-pleaser this time of year.
So what makes this healthy fudge work? The secret is in the coconut butter. Coconut butter solidifies when it’s chilled, and along with creamy cashew butter or peanut butter, helps bind the fudge similar to what you’d expect from a traditional recipe. The coconut butter is essential to this recipe!
I love making Feel Amazing Fudge on batch cooking day, and usually, I keep a batch for 1-2 weeks depending on how often my sweet tooth craving hits. These bite-sized treats make a great idea for a nightcap in the evening, but they also are nice snacks in between meals since they pack healthy fats that will keep you satiated longer. I’ve been known to enjoy these throughout the day as well as after dinner. Here’s a pro tip when making this: always keeps your Feel Amazing Fudge cold. Since coconut butter melts at room temperature, so will this fudge!
