Healthy alternatives and paying attention to what we put into our bodies is important. I’m an advocate for health and fitness, but I won’t front. A pint of Everything But The by Ben & Jerry’s is not safe in my freezer.
I like to eat. I like to eat good food. I don’t want to give up brownies for the rest of my life, but I do follow the rule everything in moderation and believe having a healthy relationship with food is just as important as a healthy balance of fitness and diet. I struggle with the latter, too, but I’m getting better.
Now, Let’s get to it. Are these 3 ingredient banana fudge cups worth making and eating as an alternative?
What are the three ingredients?
- 1 cup of almond butter (or any nut butter)
- 1/4 cup of coconut oil
- 2 mashed bananas
I mixed the ingredients and popped them into my LINED muffin tin. I emphasize the word lined because it was shocking I didn’t have to grease the tins individually and then hope it all came out of their individual homes. The true test of ‘greasing’ skills.
Here are a few examples of what they looked like when I was making them.
And for the moment of truth, did I like the “fudge.” Watch the video below for my real time analysis, complete with honest facial expressions.
I want to reiterate the choice word fudge. This isn’t fudge and it ain’t gunna taste like the dense chocolate goodness grandma makes, either. It’s good, but not fudge. So don’t take my reaction as hope it will taste like fudge.
If you try it, let me know how you enjoyed this 3 ingredient banana fudge recipe in the comment section.
|EDIT| What you should know:
- The Hubs couldn’t finish his banana fudge cup, one bite was all he needed to determine this wasn’t the life for him.
- I ended up only eating two cups and throwing the rest out a week later. Guess it wasn’t worth it for me in the long haul.
