I want to start off by saying that these heavenly fudge bites are peanut-free, nut-free, soy-free, dairy-free, egg-free, grain-free, gluten-free and refined sugar-free.
They are made in single, individual bite size squares and are perfect for a quick, small, healthy snack.
They are made with no peanuts, but have that peanut buttery flavor from the sunflower seed butter. This incredible peanut butter taste that we all love and miss, is then combined with bananas and dark chocolate to create a rich, smooth and fudgy consistency. Their texture and flavor is equal to any store bought processed fudge, yet they do not come with all the guilt. They are not overly sweet, but you can enhance the sweetness to your liking by adjusting the amount of sweetener added.
These frozen fudge treats are best served straight from the freezer so they retain their firm, creamy consistency with every bite.
Enjoy and please leave your comments below.
