Thirty Second Thursdays: Snickerdoodle "Fudge"

Happy Thanksgiving! Hope everyone celebrating has a relaxing and fulfilling holiday. Now, onto the matter at hand...

When I began my current journey into no-sugar-dom three weeks ago, I have to admit to being completely terrified about the prospect. That meant no baked goods, no chocolate, and no fruit! Seeing as chocolate and fruit used to make up a good portion of my diet, it was a little unclear what would fill that void. Yes, almonds and sunflower seeds have become a staple, but there are times when I just want something nice and sweet.

Ricki, from Diet, Dessert and Dogs, inspired one of my new favorite sweet fixes. Who would have thought that mixing beans with some stevia and cinnamon could be so wonderful? Enjoy my take on fudge (just need to find some carob...) and take a look at some of the other ACD-friendly treats.

Snickerdoodle Fudge
2/3 cup garbanzo beans, dry, soaked and cooked until very soft
2 tbs coconut oil
1 tbs tahini
1 tbs cinnamon
20 drops vanilla stevia

1. Combine everything in the food processor while beans are still warm, until extremely smooth. Spread mix in a small baking dish, or mini muffin cups (I use a silicone pan). Place in refrigerator until they set, and then cut into squares or pop out. Enjoy!
