If you add protein, it must be healthier, right?!?! In honor of peppermint season, Peppermint Protein Fudge.
3/4 Cup of Almond Butter
1/2 Cup of Ground Flax Seeds
5 Tablespoons of Chia Seeds
1 Serving of Chocolate Protein (I used Dairy Free Chocolate Isalean)
2 Dark Chocolate Squares, Melted (I used Dark Chocolate with Mint Isadelights)
2 Teaspoons of Peppermint Extract
Optional: 1/4 Cup of Roasted Cocoa, 4 Crushed Peppermints
Mix all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl, with the exception of crushed peppermints. Pack into a large square tupperware (I used a large Pyrex), top with crushed peppermints. Refrigerate for at least an hour, cut into 12 squares and enjoy! Store in the fridge to keep the form!
