Eatmore’ Fudge Squares
- 1 cup pitted dates
- 1/2 cup almonds, unsalted
- 1/4 cup walnuts, unsalted
- 1/4 cup cacao powder
- 2 ripe bananas
- 4 tbsp natural almond butter
- 1/4 cup more cacao powder
- 4 tbsp unpasteurized honey (strict vegans can use agave)
Put dates in a bowl with warm water, allow dates to soak for 30 minutes, then drain. Mix together dates, almonds, walnuts, and 1/4 cup cacao powder in a food processor until well blended. Spread mixture in a 9×5 baking pan (or an 8×8 is okay) until evenly distributed, and press down gently with a spoon. Mix together bananas, almond butter, honey, and other 1/4 cup cacao powder in the food processor until well blended. Spread mixture over bottom layer until evenly distributed. Place in freezer for 30 minutes. Cut into 16 squares. Re-freeze whatever you don’t eat, and enjoy at another time!
We’ve adapted the recipe to include one of our favorite Superfoods — Cacao Powder. Use it instead of cocoa powder.
