…Humpty Dumpty had a great RECIPE! Day 36 of my Food Journey

February9

My son subscribes to the Humpty Dumpty magazine for kids. Very cute little publication. It comes out 6 times a year. Always has a silly little healthy snack recipe in the back that you can make with your kids. Most of the time they are just too ridiculous to indulge in, but this last issue of Humpty Dumpty magazine there was not one but TWO great recipe ideas in there!! Way to do it Humpty!
So one of the recipes was called Superfood Fudge by Mom blogger Sarah of Frugal by Choice, Cheap by Necessity. Now let me warn you about this “fudge” it is in no way going to look like, taste like or resemble fudge.  I’m not sure why she called it that except for that she’s a mom and her kids may have fallen for it so good for her! And hey, it’s a magazine for 5 year olds, so you can’t really complain about the culinary intent behind it. My son and I made it two days ago and at first I was disappointed with the result, but then something magical happened and it’s now my most favorite snack ever in the whole world!!! Thank you Mom Blogger, Sarah! You’re changing lives over here in Bend, Oregon.

Here’s how you make it – I of course changed it a little bit to make it vegan and less sugary:

Heat 1 cup peanut butter with 1 cup Brown Rice Syrup stirring constantly over medium heat until combined and creamy.
toast 1/2 cup sesame seeds in a skillet
add the sesame seeds to the pot of peanut butter mix along with:
1/2 cup chia seeds
1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
12 pitted, chopped dates
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 cup raw sunflower seeds
combine all the ingredients above and spread evenly into a greased 9×9 pan. I didn’t do this because for some reason I STILL don’t have a 9×9 baking dish even though I need one at least once a week. I put parchment paper down on a cookie sheet and spread out the mixture as evenly as I could then put it in the refrigerator. It is VERY difficult to work with after you add everything in. It takes some muscle so don’t be worried if it seems too tough or thick. After it cools off and hardens up it’s also a bit tricky to cut. I cut mine into squares and now they are out on my counter top on my covered cake plate that I use for all our household snacks.
Super Food Fudge Bars
They are so healthy and yummy! London has been asking for them everyday. This is one of those things that I have no problem giving him as a snack. He can have them for breakfast lunch and dinner if he wants (he doesn’t) because they are really pretty healthy indeed. I also have been eating them nonstop – I pretend it’s fudge.  It’s not.

Try them out. You might love them like I do.
And as always Let me know how it goes and what you think…
