Looks delicious Amber! I agree on the carob. My girls often want a chocolate milkshake, so I’ll blend hemp milk, avocado, honey, and carob, and they love it! I hope you have a happy weekend girl!
Your pictures are stunning! SO beautiful! I love all the Davis sunflowers, I don’t get to see them as often as you do though. One of these days we have to meet. We’re in Davis about every other month for our midwives potlucks.
The fudge sounds so yummy too.
Thanks for sharing your happy place. Such gorgeous photos! I spent a year in Auburn, CA, and we would often drive your way to go to the Palms Playhouse in Winters. Singing/songwriting is my husband’s happy place.
Amber, I am so thrilled that you have a close-up photo of the sunflowers that shows two honeybees! I just LOVE that! I’m like you about sunflowers. They bring such instant joy!
And this fudge looks absolutely amazing! I love that in getting to your success to raw Nutella, you discovered this creation. That is often the best part about recipe creation, isn’t it? The unexpected discoveries along the way. 😉
This looks delish… I’m w/you about sunflowers…thanks for the beautiful images.
Thank you Amber. I needed some happy news this week and your gorgeous sunflowers cheered me right up And carob fudge…oh YES! Perfect for my kids and me!
Hi! It sounds like you live in a very beautiful part of the world Amber! Wonderful photos of sunflowers – I’m a little jealous – the most we ever see in our part of the world is the odd one planted in a pot!
What a gorgeous and healthy recipe! I’m just about to pin it for later xo
hi could i use Onc Again brand sunflower butter, and cocoa powder in this recipe? thanks
Yes. Just note that using cocoa powder will yield a much stronger and more bitter flavor, so increase the sweetener. I’ve also made it with cocoa, but it really needed some extra sweet. That all being said, check your sunflower butter brand to see if they add any sugar. Some brands do add in cane-sugar.
i agree, sunflowers are such beautiful flowers. i love how dramatic yet whimsical they are! So question for you Miss Amber, do you eat carob on the SCD? I stay away from chocolate and cacao, but have always wondered if carob is scd legal? you mentioned it is a “sometimes” treat…do you eat it? thanks! have a beautiful evening!
I’m playing catch up from preparing for our trip and being out of town. This fudge looks so good! I can tell just by the picture that it’s really creamy and melts in your mouth. I can’t wait to try it!
I love all of your sunflower pictures! Thank you for sharing them. I planted 2 sunflowers this summer. They are easily over 6 feet tall now, and are SO close to blooming. I really hope at least one of them blooms before the frost hits (it’s been pretty chilly here – in the 50’s during the day). Last year I planted a sunflower and it froze before I got a bloom. Keep your fingers crossed for me that this year will be different!
Off to pin and share this fab recipe on FB!
Hugs and love!
I’m allergic to coconut. Can I replace it with something else?
Looks great, Amber! Gotta give this one a try.
What breathtaking pictures! There’s just something about sunflowers that are magical. They are one of a kind and spread so much joy with their bright, happy faces. Thanks for sharing those photos.
And thanks for sharing your delicious fudge at Raw Foods Thursdays! I’m going to try to make them this weekend.
