Gluten, Dairy and Refined Sugar Free Cacao Fudge No-Bakes

I’m obsessed with no-bake cookies! Anything that eliminates the guessing game of baking is a winner in my book. These are the healthier option to “normal” no-bakes because these cookies are free of gluten, refined sugar and dairy. The perfect combination if you have a diva stomach like myself. Enjoy!

Health Benefits: 

  1. Cacao Powder is a plant based super-food filled with antioxidants.
  2. Maca Powder increases energy, improves skin and hair and balances hormones.

Recipe Notes

If you have peanut butter on hand, then no need to make from scratch. I bought Peanut Butter Powder because there weren't any nut butters on sale and this was the cheaper option. 

Since I made my own peanut butter, I added honey to it. Therefore, if you use peanut butter without added sugar, then you will probably want to increase your Maple Syrup amount. 

Thanks so much for trying this recipe! Let me know what you think. 🙂
