Peanut Butter Fudge Slice

This is the result of some serious procrastinating... I have been doing anything but study lately. Cleaning the toilet has been more appealing.  Today I had a huge craving for peanut butter and wanted to make something with ingredients I already had in the cupboard.  In Julia and Libby's Wholefood Kitchen we have an incredible Peanut Butter Cheesecake and I took inspo from that recipe, but simplified it.

Peanut Butter Fudge

Since I can remember I have loved fudge, usually the kind with half a kilo of white or brown sugar in it, usually caramel flavoured (condensed milk, yum) and more often than not I am unable to just have one piece.  Fudge is my vice.  In my ongoing quest to create clean vegan sweets it has lead me to what I would say is my favourite recipe to date.  Just 3 ingredients, how simple can you get? While this fudge contains no dairy, gluten, refined sugar or additives and a whole lot of good fats,  please don't eat it all at once.

Peanut Butter and Cacao Brownie

Chocolate and peanut butter are two foods that taste incredible when combined.  These decadent, chewy peanut butter and cacao brownies are the perfect guilt free comfort food. The peanut butter makes the brownie creamy and rich and the cacao nibs gives it a crunchy texture. This is such a simple recipe to follow and can be easily adapted by adding nuts, shredded coconut, dried fruit and white chocolate bits. I served my brownies with plain yogurt and they also taste great eaten on their own, they are moist so do not worry if you do not have yoghurt.

Avocado and Coconut Smoothie

This green smoothie contains three of my favorite high quality fats which are Avocado, Coconut Oil and Peanut Butter. Fat is one of the three basic macronutrients (proteins, fats, carbohydrates) that your body needs to survive. It has many special roles from providing superior long lasting energy to supporting the development of hormones. Fat is needed for protecting vital organs, it’s also required for assimilating the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K.

This recipe is a healthy version of the usual unhealthy highly refined biscuits from the supermarket. These cookies are refined sugar free, high in fibre and vegan.If you are unable to find raw maple syrup you can leave it out and add another tablespoon of coconut oil. These cookies are great for school lunches and to have as a sweet treat.

Peanut Butter Protein Slice

On my way home from Uni yesterday I had a peanut butter craving, so got home, looked at what food was in the cupboard that I could possibly use to make some sort of peanut butter creation.  Keep it simple is one of my motto's - Make something substantial and somehow combine protein powder without making the whole thing taste like cardboard. The recipe can easily tweaked here and there to suit your own taste.  For example rice milk if you don't drink almond, honey if you don't like maple syrup and adding in stevia if you have a big sweet tooth.  Make it for yourself and let me know your thoughts.
