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.

Last night I came home to a package by a mysterious sender. It was a professional photography light set and the second I opened it I knew who it was from–my dad! Although, I haven’t figured out how to use it yet, I’m like a legit food photographer and blogger now. Thanks Dad, love you! Anyone with pro lighting tips, please send them my way!

I keep getting asked if these bars are filled with cream in the center and no, they aren’t. That’s PEANUT BUTTER! Seriously, I used White Chocolate flavored peanut butter by Buff Bake. Because it’s so rich, when I mixed it with coconut oil and maple syrup, it almost tastes like a sweet cream filled center. If you want to try Buff Bake, get 10% off your order by using code PBCHOCO.
