Ingredients
  • 1 cup chunky peanut butter (or almond butter)
  • 1 cup coconut butter (or another cup of peanut butter if you're feeling crazy)
  • ½ cup butter, melted (or coconut oil)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 duck eggs (or chicken eggs -- the fattier duck eggs make for a richer treat)
  • ½ cup coconut palm sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon pure stevia extract
  • 1 cup chopped almonds
  • 1 cup homemade carob chunks* (or dark chocolate chips)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 11x7 glass baking dish with coconut oil.
  2. In a small sauce pan, stir together peanut butter, coconut butter, and coconut oil over lowest heat until well combined.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla, baking soda and salt. Add eggs, coconut palm sugar, and stevia, and mix well.
  4. Stir in chopped almonds and carob chunks, and spread evenly into prepared baking dish.
  5. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes, until done. Cool, cover and refrigerate overnight. The magic happens when it's chilled and fudgey.
Notes
*For homemade carob chunks, mix together ½ cup carob powder, ½ cup coconut oil (melted), 1 tbsp vanilla, ¼ tea salt, ⅛ teaspoon stevia, 3 tbsp coconut palm sugar. Mix until combined (add more salt or sweetener, if desired). Pour into a wax paper-lined dish or bowl (so the mix is about ¼" thick), and freeze until hard. Break/cut into chunks.
