After dance snack…..YUM!

Healthy-Peanut-Butter-Chocolate-Fudge-683x1024

By Tiffany Rudd – posted on http://www.superhealthykids.com

Try this delicious snack after your Irish dancing class. Put back some protein.
Healthy Peanut Butter Chocolate Fudge
Ingredients
1/2 cup natural peanut butter or allergy-friendly alternative
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
1 large ripe banana
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 tablespoons melted unrefined coconut oil
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
Instructions
If peanut butter is not stir-able, gently heat until you are able to easily stir it.
Combine all the ingredients in a high-powered blender or food processor. If you don’t have either of those, mash the banana and then stir together all of the ingredients until completely smooth. Doing it by hand works, but it takes time, so be patient.
Scoop into a small container lined with parchment paper. You could also use candy molds or mini cupcake liners. Freeze until firm.
Because of the melty nature of unrefined coconut oil, this fudge is best stored in the freezer. Don’t worry though, it still keeps its fudgy texture.
