Literally get in my face. I can't stand how amazing these egg-free, gluten-free, dairy-free cookies are. Yes....they are even - dare I say it - VEGAN. When starting this blog I would never have guessed that I'd associate myself with anything vegan...not because I hate vegans or anything, but because I'm pretty sure 75% of my bloodstream is composed of bacon grease. But here I stand, having made a vegan friendly, gluten-free dessert than literally anyone can enjoy.
Oh yes. Come to momma you sweet, sweet cup of delicious whipped chocolate peanut butter magic.Similar to my recent rant about allowing oats back in my diet, I've also come to re-extend a friendly handshake to quality yogurt sources. Greek yogurt is my fave. I particularly stray towards Trader Joe's plain Greek yogurt, as it has a whopping 22g of protein in a cup and is super versatile - whatever flavor I'm in the mood for, I just dress it up accordingly. Drizzle it with some honey and sliced fruit? Great. Add it to a smoothie for extra creaminess? Nailed it. Whisk it with peanut butter and cocoa powder for the most simple yet mind blowing moussey cookie dough-like treat? Witchcraft.
Over the last year or so, I've toned down the number of dessert recipes I've posted...and that's simply because I've come to prefer stuffing myself silly with things like meatballs as opposed to cookies. Nonetheless, you'll see them here and there as a reflection of the fact that we are all human and everyone needs a tasty indulgence every now and again.
Though I wouldn't ordinarily consider lemon tarts your prototypical birthday treat...these sure didn't disappoint my man friend on his big day. To digress, he's one of those weirdos who when given the choice between fruit-based desserts and chocolate-based desserts, he will 11 times out of 10 (math was never my thing) choose the fruit. And because chocolate cake should be the only type of cake that exists in this world, I was left with the option of a fruit-based birthday trizeat.
Ohhh mer gerd you guys. This is a game changer. Even when kept in the freezer, this fudge retains its fudgy consistency. Not to mention, this fudge is almost purely healthy fats with a very minimal amount of honey throughout. I gnosh on one a cube of this shiz and my brain power increases ten fold. Ok, not sure that's scientifically legit....but I'm gonna go ahead and consider it brain fuel regardless. OH MY GOD NOMZ. Make this right now, or die a tragically fatless fudgeless death.
