One of our favourites - pili nut fudge from Melissa Laycy (Healthy Gut Coach). It's easy and delicious, based on no-nonsense whole-food principles, and it's kid friendly.
Preparation time: 40 minutes
25g cacao butter
25g Coconut oil.
20g Chai Turmeric Nuzest Protein
2-4 drops of liquid stevia
1tbs Inulin powder*
2tbs plant based milk (almond/coconut)
Add your butter, oil and milk to a pan and gently heat until everything is melted. Let the mixture cool for 5 minutes and in the meantime line a small brownie tray. Whisk in your protein powder and then roughly chop your Pili nuts and set aside.
Whisk in your inulin powder to the pan (if you do this too soon while the mixture is hot it will stick together like toffee). Add half of your chopped nuts to the fudge and give it a good stir, Pour your fudge into the tray and sprinkle the remaining nuts on top.
Let cool in the fridge, slice into fudgy squares when set! *Inulin is a prebiotic which means it's food for your good gut bacteria. Some people with a compromised microbiome may want to omit this ingredient until further down the road with their gut health journey. Pili nuts taste like the love child of a woody brazil and a creamy macadamia! I've just discovered the company Raw & Wild who let me try out all their new flavours from cacao, chilli, salted and turmeric which are all so more-ish!
