54-Calorie Rocky Road Fudge!
Hit the Road, Snack...We're beyond crazy about our latest fudge recipe. It's SO rich, low in calories, and made with nutritious ingredients like dates and black beans (which you CANNOT taste). Bonus: It’s loaded with nutty marshmallow goodness! Perfect for the holiday season and beyond...
Cook: 40 minutes
Cool/Chill: 3 hours
1/4 cup pitted dried dates
One 15-oz. can black beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup unsweetened dark cocoa powder
1/3 cup canned pure pumpkin
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup (about 2 large) egg whites or fat-free liquid egg substitute
2 tbsp. coconut flour
2 tbsp. Truvia spoonable no-calorie sweetener (or another natural brand about twice as sweet as sugar)
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. salt
3 tbsp. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 oz. (about 2 tbsp.) chopped almonds
1/2 cup mini marshmallows
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8" X 8" baking pan with nonstick spray.
Place dates in a small bowl with 1/2 cup warm water. Soak until softened, 5 - 10 minutes.
Drain excess liquid from dates, and transfer to a food processor. Add beans, cocoa powder, pumpkin, applesauce, egg whites/substitute, coconut flour, sweetener, baking powder, vanilla, and salt. Puree until completely smooth and uniform.
In a small microwave-safe bowl, microwave chocolate chips at 50 percent power for 1 1/2 minutes, or until melted.
Add melted chips to food processor, and puree until completely blended.
Fold 1/4 oz. (about 1 tbsp.) almonds into batter. Spread batter into the baking pan, and smooth out the top. Bake until a toothpick (or knife) inserted into the center comes out mostly clean, 30 - 35 minutes.
Top with marshmallows and remaining 1/4 oz. (about 1 tbsp.) almonds. Bake until slightly melted, about 3 minutes.
Let cool completely, about 1 hour.
Cover and refrigerate until completely chilled, at least 2 hours. (This fudge tastes best when chilled overnight; it's even good slightly frozen!)
