Black Bean Fudge
















Don't you just love Holiday Fudge? The rich, delicious taste of dark cocoa baked to perfection in a creamy, dreamy cube are hard to resist. It's no wonder our sugar levels and weight seem to increase a bit around this time of year.

So what if I told you that you could have all that delicious taste you love about Holiday fudge, but without all the added sugar, and with a boost protein. Yes, you heard me right, a fudge that gives you protein! How can this be, you ask? What is our secret. I'll tell you: Black Beans.

Now, I know, when you hear the word Black Bean attached to fudge, your gag reflexes probably begin to tense up. But believe me when I tell you, this fudge is as rich, creamy, and delicious as any Holiday fudge out there. And because it's made with our amazing Quick Cook Black Beans, you don't have to worry about any excess sugar. Delicious and good for you? You know you can't pass that up. Grab a spoon, it's time to bake up some Black Bean Fudge.

Ingredients:
1 1/4 cup Honeyville Quick Cook Black Beans
2 1/2 cups Water
1/2 cup Cacao Powder (or Baker's Cocoa Powder)
1/4 cup Honeyville Organic Peanut Butter Powder + 2 Tbsp Water
2 Tbsp Coconut Oil
1/2 cup Pitted Dates
2 tsp Vanilla
Pinch of Himalayan Salt

Directions:
First, cook your beans.

Can you use canned black beans? If so, how many do I need? Thanks

Yes you can! The measurements would be the same, you'd just remove the 2 1/2 cups of water.

Can you alter the ingredients with regular dry black beans and regular peanut or almond butter?

My son is allergic to peanut butter. Can you substitute anything for the peanut butter powder?

Would I use 1/4 c regular peanut butter in place of the PB powder?
