Today I’ve got something that makes my mornings brighter and better, Morning Mocha Fudge! Yes coffee and chocolate to go with your coffee, does it get much better? It does, it’s healthy and delicious!
Don’t worry it’s not your typical super sweet indulging fudge. It’s healthy, packed with (plant-based) protein, bonus superfood option (keep reading!), and is made with only 4-5 simple ingredients! If coffee isn’t your thing, no worries just leave it out.
I’ve been whipping up bars, bites, and balls again to help make things easier with busy life. The girls are back at school in person and we have a lot going on with our build potentially being moved up to start soon. I’ve also been making versions of some of A’s favorites easier for her to eat as she got the rest of her braces on last week and can’t eat most of her go-to bars and snacks.
So lots of great recipes I cannot wait to share with you!
I’ve been grabbing a square of Morning Mocha Fudge to enjoy with my coffee in the morning before or when I take A to school since breakfast is later. It’s also a nice afternoon snack, so not technically just for mornings. I usually cut them in 8 pieces for the morning, sometimes a half piece for an afternoon snack so you can cut into whatever size works best for you and your needs.
So what’s in Morning Mocha Fudge?
Cashew Butter- I love the flavor of cashew butter and it’s my go-to for these. I usually make my own as it’s so easy and can be made without adding other ingredients. Oh the memories of 10 years ago when I would go into Whole Foods and grind warm cashew butter to dip dates in. Luckily I can make my own at home now. You can sub almond or another butter if you’d like.
Pure Maple Syrup- I usually make them with maple syrup but you want to sub honey or agave.
Chocolate Protein Powder- I use Four Sigmatic Creamy Cacao Plant-based Protein with Superfoods as it’s a staple and packed with superfoods, functional mushrooms, and adaptogens. Not it doesn’t taste like mushrooms! It helps elevate my wellness and gives me what I need to feel by best. I’ve made variations of these with other protein powders so I’ve also added the weight but all that I’ve used, at least 4 over the years, have worked with the same amount. If you want to try Four Sigmatic you can use code MISSWHISK on the Four Sigmatic website to save 10% (affiliated link).
Chocolate- I also like to add in a little chopped dark chocolate, and sometimes sprinkle a little extra on top!
Coffee- A little extra boost with ground coffee, or chopped coffee beans. I usually make espresso or an Americano at home but recently started drinking Four Sigmatic Ground Mushroom Coffee With Lion’s Mane. I first tried it last year after hearing it’s lower in acidity (easier on my stomach) and you don’t get the coffee crash after. I love the mental clarity without the crash or crummy feeling. If you want to try it you can also use the MISSWHISK code to save 10% just like the protein powder, or anything on the Four Sigmatic website (affiliated link).
Sounds pretty good doesn’t it? It really doesn’t get much easier or better for a Monday morning!
Hope you all have a great week!
