Double Chocolate Granola Butter Fudge

Hubby and I are spending a month in California and one of the coolest things is being able to buy Granola Butter in a physical store. I am obsessed with granola butter, it is so delicious. It’s a nut and seed free spreadable granola! We picked some up at Whole Foods along with a vanilla crunch Hu Chocolate bar.

This is the easiest and most delicious chocolate treat!

  • Jar of granola butter, well stirred
  • Hu Kitchen vanilla crunch bar, chopped
  • Pinch of Maldon sea salt

Line a pan with parchment paper. Pour the granola butter into the pan. Spread the chopped chocolate bar on top and press the chocolate in using the back of a spoon. Sprinkle with sea salt and freeze for at least 4 hours. Chop and enjoy!!

Chocolate and Almond Granola

This is so yummy!!

  • 2 cups oats
  • 1 cup flax seeds, ground
  • 1 cup almonds, chopped
  • Large pinch sea salt
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 2 TB almond butter
  • 1/4 cup + 3 TB maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 3 1” cubes cacao paste, microplaned or finely grated
  • 1/2 cup dried banana

Toast oats at 325 degrees for 10 minutes.

While oats are toasting, melt coconut oil, almond butter and maple syrup over very low heat until coconut oil is melted. Turn off heat. Add vanilla and finely grated cacao paste to the maple mixture and stir to combine.

Remove the oats from the oven and add flax, almonds, salt and the chocolate maple mixture. Stir to combine. Cook in the oven for 25 minutes, stirring after 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and stir in the dried banana. Allow the granola to come to room temperature (stirring every 10ish minutes, so it doesn’t stick to the pan).

Enjoy!!

Overnight Chocolate Flax and Oats

Overnight Chocolate and Flax Oats:
Makes 4 servings

These were so delicious and creamy!

4 TB maple syrup
4 TB avocado oil
Pinch of sea salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
About 1” cube of cacao paste
1 can full fat coconut milk (try to find one without added guar gum)

1 1/3 cup oats
3 TB flax seeds
3 TB almond flour
4 scoops collagen peptides
Pinch of salt

Heat avocado oil and maple syrup over very low heat until hot. Turn off heat and microplane the cacao paste over the maple oil mixture (if you don’t have a microplane, grate or chop cacao paste very fine). Stir in vanilla and coconut milk.
In a bowl combine oats, flax seeds, almond flour, collagen and salt. Add the liquid mixture and stir combine. Scoop each serving into individual ramekins/bowls/glasses, cover and refrigerate over night. Top with fresh fruit and enjoy!


Double Chocolate Cashew Cupcakes

These cupcakes are divine!! You can also make them with almond butter or peanut butter… those variations coming soon!
Sometimes gluten, dairy and refined sugar free baked goods are dense and lack moisture. But I promise you these are fluffy and moist (sorry I don’t have a better word for it 😬)!!

Cupcakes:
1/4 cup + 3 TB milk (I used @goodmylkco almond milk)
3 TB cacao powder
1/3 cup cashew butter
5 TB maple syrup
1 egg
1/4 tsp vanilla 
1/4 cup + 2 TB almond flour 
1/4 tsp baking soda
4 TB arrowroot 
A very large pinch of sea salt

Frosting: 
2/3 cup cashew butter
1/2 cup maple syrup 
A very large pinch of sea salt
1/8 tsp vanilla
2 TB cacao powder

Make sure cashew butter and egg are at room temperature and oven is set to 350 degrees before beginning.
Heat milk in a saucepan over medium low heat until the milk scalds. Remove from the heat and pour into a liquid measuring cup or bowl. Add cacao powder and stir to combine. Let sit until it reaches room temperature.

Cream cashew butter and maple syrup in a mixing bowl with a large mixing spoon or spatula. Add the egg and vanilla and cream until homogenous. 
Strain the cacao milk mixture over the creamed cashew mixture (using a fine mesh strainer- or if you don’t have one, you can blend the cacao milk in a blender to make sure there are no lumps) in two additions folding the milk in completely before adding the second addition. 
Whisk the dry ingredients together and add to the creamed mixture in 3 additions, folding the ingredients in completely before adding another addition. 

Bake in cupcake molds for 25 minutes, rotating halfway through cooking.
Remove from the oven and let sit for 10 minutes before unmolding. Let the cupcakes come to room temperature before frosting them.

Cream the room temperature cashew butter, maple syrup, vanilla and sea salt together in a mixing bowl with a spoon or spatula. Once the mixture is homogenous, sift the cacao powder over it in two additions. Make sure to fold all of the first addition in before adding the second one. 
Pipe or spread the frosting on the cupcakes and enjoy!
