Vegan Chocolate Chia Coconut Crunch Fudge

vegan chocolate, Modern Food Stories

Have you ever made a treat where you can’t wait for breakfast to be over to enjoy? And I lOVE breakfast so that’s how good it is! Vegan Chocolate Chia Coconut Crunch Fudge. Try saying that with a mouthful!

This vegan chocolate is a cross between chocolate and fudge. Serve straight from the fridge if you like that more crunchy, crisp chocolate texture or at room temp for a softer fudge like consistency. Or if you’re like me and totally indecisive, half and half!

It’s refined sugar free and sweetened with just a touch of coconut honey, or you can use swerve, stevia or erythritol if you’re following Keto or a low-carb diet. I prefer to keep the sugar content low in my chocolate. I even love this healthy chocolate 100% dark as the almond butter takes off the bitter edge. You may not be as hardcore as me so i’ve included the sweetener but remember it’s still sugar after all, albeit a healthier one, so start with a touch, taste until you get to the right sweetness for you.

Let me know what you think of this vegan chocolate below. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
