Healthy Blueberry Chocolate Fudge Bars

Healthy Blueberry Chocolate Fudge Bars

 

 

These super decadent blueberry chocolate fudge bars are made healthy using whole food ingredients! Did I mention they are vegan, gluten-free and paleo? This way everyone can enjoy them! 🙂


 

 

The blueberry bars are topped with a super fudgy frosting made using only a few ingredients and magically comes together in seconds! This fudge frosting is a recipe you can reuse again and again!

 

 

Although fresh blueberries are delicious, I used freeze dried blueberries for this recipe. I found them at Trader Joe’s for a reasonable price.

 

 

I sprinkled these bad boys with more crushed freeze dried blueberries. Freeze dried fruit is my new favorite food to bake with. It really gives your treats a pop of color (and flavor!) check out my Healthy Double Chocolate Shortbread Cookies Topped with Freeze Dried Strawberries for more freeze dried goodness!

 

 

It literally took all my will power not to eat this entire stack… THEY ARE SO GOOD THOUGH.

 

 

Of course, as always I used PEScience protein powder in this recipe (vegan powders available). Get 30% OFF all PEScience products by using code PBCHOCO at checkout.

 

 

Blueberries and Chocolate are match made in heaven! This recipe has quickly become a favorite.

Healthy Maple Oat Nut Baked Pears with Cranberries

Healthy Maple Oat Nut Baked Pears with Cranberries

If you like getting creative with your breakfast food then you will love this decadent and super simple recipe!

 

I love the fruits that are in season this time of year and will find just about any excuse to use apples and pears in a recipe. I didn’t acquire a taste for pears until just a few years ago (not sure why because they are amazing). I can’t get enough of them now!

I tried baked pears last year and they were drizzled with honey and sprinkled with cinnamon. For so little ingredients, they were amazing and if you are just looking for a sweet and simple snack, that recipe is amazing. But if you want a more filling breakfast with your baked pears add some oats and crushed nuts for the ultimate Fall dish.
