I've been trying to eat low-carb lately, and it is tough. All the yummiest foods are carbs! Well, I can give up bread products without too much fuss, but sweets.....sweets. I'm a big sweet tooth, so it's a challenge for me to give up sweets.
So, I've been looking around lately for low-carb recipes, and I came across a blog devoted to healthier desserts. Of course, I just had to try some of them!
The recipe that really caught my attention is chocolate fudge in a jar from the blog Chocolate Covered Katie (here's the link). It's a very simple recipe: take a jar of almond butter, mix in coconut oil and cocoa, along with a bit of salt and vanilla and Stevia, then stick it in the fridge. So simple! I love that it's low-carb, and uses Stevia as the sweetener (I'm a little scared of artificial sweeteners). But, this recipe comes with a big caveat: it's best only if you are following a low-carb diet. If you're eating your normal diet, this fudge won't seem very sweet to you. But if you've been off sugar for a while, this will be a real treat.
I also like that it all mixes up (and stores in the fridge) in its original jar. And, there's leftover almond butter, so you could easily make a second batch in another jar if you wanted to. Two jars of low-carb fudge? Sounds good to me - and my sweet tooth!
