Soooo, I’m off sugar. That’s not to say I’m off all sweets. I indulge in a little honey or maple syrup here and there. But I’m trying to avoid white sugar. They say that once you eliminate sugar, that you get to the point that you don’t even crave it. They are wrong.
I don’t crave sweets all the time – only for breakfast and after every meal. Other than that, I can totally do without. But for those rare occasions when I do need a need a treat, I keep my Hippy Food Fudgey Peanut Butter Bon Bons on hand. They are a closely related to Hippy Food Fudge, but a little less fattening – less of a special occasion food and more of a daily indulgence.
Once again, I am a pinch and dash cook, so these measurements are just suggestions. Feel free to adjust this recipe to taste. The best part of this recipe (besides the taste) is that it only calls for four ingredients.
- 1 cup powdered peanut butter
- 1/4 cup raw cocoa
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1/2 cup maple syrup or honey (or more for a sweeter bon bon)
Whisk peanut butter and cocoa together.
Melt coconut oil. And that and the maple syrup to powdered mixture. Use more coconut oil if you want. It will make the bon bons less fudgey and more creamy, but just as yummy.
Spoon the yummy, fudgey mixture into min cupcake papers and refrigerate for an hour or so. After they have set up, I leave my bon bons in an airtight container at room temperature, but you can also store them in the fridge.
Not only are Hippy Food Fudgey Peanut Butter Bon Bons yummy, they are surprisingly satisfying. Like a true sugar addict, I tend to over-indulge in desserts. These goodies are rich and delicious, yet after only one or two, I am well pleased. I don’t overeat these, like I do some other sweets. And they are filling too – great for breakfast or a mid-morning snack.
However you decide to enjoy Hippy Food Fudgey Peanut Butter Bon Bons do it guilt free! And it you plan to share, double the batch – because your family will gobble these up.
