It was quiet in the house and there wasn't a scrap of something sweet to eat! Panic.

Use whatever nut or seed butter you have on hand. As long as you have the butter, the sweetener, the cocoa powder, and the oil, you're good to go.
Chocolate Nut Freezer Fudge
Total Time : 5 minutes + Freezing 30 min - 24 hours
2 heaping tablespoons natural nut butter of choice (peanut butter here!)
2 tablespoons sweetener of choice (maple syrup here!)
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
1 tablespoon melted coconut oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
dash of sea salt
Handful of unsalted raw nuts & unsweetened shredded coconut to sprinkle on top
What to do:
1) In a small saucepan over medium-low, melt together all ingredients except nuts/coconut toppings. Stir together until evenly combined and smooth.
2) In a parchment lined brownie pan, pour/spatula in the chocolate mixture and spread evenly. Sprinkle with coconut and nuts.
3) Pop in the freezer for about 30 minutes. Cut into square and enjoy or leave in the freezer until ready to enjoy. Or do what we do - leave in the freezer and sneak a square every now and then when you're craving something sweet. Usually once Hannah goes to nap!
