Full of protein rich foods, raw superfoods and yummy flavor, these fudge squares pack a healthy punch.
Maca powder can be found in most health food stores or coops. Maca powder is rich in Vitamins B, C, and E, is known to aid PMS and menopausal issues, promotes healthy libido, increases energy and is high in iron.
Chia seeds add a bit of crunch to the fudge, but they also add high amounts of protein, manganese, and healthy omega-3 fats. They are helpful for diabetics as they slow digestion, stabilize blood sugar, help detoxify the colon, boost energy, and lower cholesterol.
It seems to me that with all these health benefits, you might not expect this fudge to be delicious, but I think it is. Give it a try and let me know what you think.
