One of my favorite nighttime snacks: double chocolate protein fudge. It’s chewy and chocolatey and delicious! And the macros are perfect for an end-of-day treat!

It’s a simple mix of chocolate whey protein powder, raw cacao powder, and raw almond butter. Oh, and a little sea salt. Don’t forget the salt, like I sometimes do. It really brings out the chocolatey flavor!

And wait until you see the variations I have in store for this fudge! You can find those that have been posted by searching the blog for fudge.

The only problem with this double chocolate protein fudge is that whenever I make it, I can’t resist eating it before putting it into the pan to set. Try it. You’ll see.

Notes
A note about substitutions: You can substitute casein powder for the whey powder. For a vegan version, you could use Vega Sport Chocolate. Other vegan powders are chalkier, and wouldn't work well. Cocoa powder can be used in place of cacao powder. And almond butter can be made by processing almonds in a food processor.
