A "berry" delicious chocolate fudge treat made healthy! These super decadent blueberry chocolate fudge bars are made healthier using whole food ingredients! Instead of all-purpose flour, the bars are made from rice flour and almond flour and packed with plant-based protein. They're also speckled with freeze-dried blueberries, which pairs perfectly with the fudgy chocolate frosting on top. Perfect as a pre-workout snack, a less "guilty" sweet treat, or even for breakfast.

Healthy treats and single-serving desserts made using whole foods ingredients. Hi, I’m Ciarra, I am the recipe creator and photographer and as you may have guessed, I am obsessed with peanut butter and chocolate. Not too long ago I realized my obsession with desserts had me feeling tired and sluggish. I knew my nightly pint of ice cream was the cause but I wasn’t about to give it up, so I set out to make a healthy a batch of brownies using whole food ingredients and then I never looked back!
