'Eatmore' Fudge

This 'Eatmore' Fudge looks amazing and our friend made it to confirm it is.
We made our own almond butter for this using the Blendtec Twist jar and 1.5 cups of almonds in 40 seconds at step up 7 twisting the lid as it blended. This is so much easier than using the food processor for 10 minutes.

‘Eatmore’ Fudge Squares

(Serves: 16)
  • 1 cup pitted dates
  • 1/2 cup almonds, unsalted
  • 1/4 cup walnuts, unsalted
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    Put dates in a bowl with warm water, allow dates to soak for 30 minutes, then drain (we save this water to sweeten our tea instead of using honey or sugar - http://nutritionfacts.org/video/the-healthiest-sweetener/ ). Mix together dates, almonds, walnuts, and 1/4 cup cocoa powder in a food processor until well blended. Spread mixture in a 9×5 baking pan (we used a 9x9 pan) until evenly distributed, and press down gently with a spoon.
  • 2 ripe bananas (we used ripe bananas we had frozen)
  • 4 tbsp natural almond butter
  • 1/4 cup more unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 4 tbsp unpasteurized honey (K note: strict vegans can use agave)
    Mix together bananas, almond butter, honey, and other 1/4 cup cocoa 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! 
These do need to stay frozen.
