Who said fudge was only a dessert? This recovery fudge is definitely my new favorite post-workout snack.
Place 1/2 cup almond butter, 2 tbs peanut butter (optional), 1/2 cup protein powder, 1/3 cup coconut oil, 1/4 cup cocoa powder, 1/4 cup pure maple syrup, 1 medium-sized banana, 1 tsp vanilla, and 1 tsp cinnamon in a blender and blend until smooth. Fold in 1 cup quinoa puffs.
Divide mixture among approximately 24 mini-muffin cups, or an ice cube tray. Sprinkle 1 tsp flaky salt (i.e. fleur de sel) over tops. Place tray in freezer until set, about 1 hour. The fudge cups will remain fairly soft and won’t freeze solid. Unmold fudge cups and keep in an airtight container or zip-top bag in the freezer for up to 1 month.
