Fudge is a candy which is usually made with sugar, butter and chocolate, very high in fat and sugar and it would need those ingredients to reach the hard candy state.
Brownies can be healthier way to go. I have two recipes, I've used for a healthier way to eat. The black bean brownies add protein and fiber to the dessert, plus you can't even taste any beans and it adds moisture to the mix. It's yummy.
The banana microwaved brownies are yummy and quick to make.
Black Bean Brownies
1 (15.5 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
3 eggs (or 3/4 cup egg beaters)
3 tbsp canola oil (or 1 tbsp oil, 2 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce or pureed fruits, like peaches)
1/4 cup cocoa powder (I use Hershey's unsweetened, natural, not dutch processed)
1 pinch salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup white sugar (or 1/4 cup sugar, 1/2 cup Splenda)
1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease an 8x8 square baking dish.
Combine the black beans, eggs, oil, cocoa powder, salt, vanilla extract, sugar; blend (can use food processor) until smooth; pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the top of the mixture.
Bake in the preheated oven until the top is dry and the edges start to pull away from the sides of the pan, about 30 minutes.
1 banana, mashed
3/4 cup sugar (or 1/2 cup sugar, 1/4 cup Splenda)
1/4 cup oil
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
4 tbsp cocoa
1/2 tsp salt
Mix wet ingredients in a bowl.
Add dry ingredients. Mix everything together thoroughly.
Pour into a (greased with cooking spray or canola oil) small microwavable safe dish.
Sprinkle with chocolate chips and microwave on high for 4-5 minutes (depending on how gooey you like them).
