If you have not had fudge for a while because you are on SCD or GAPS, this Mock Cocoa Fudge recipe will really satisfy and rank high on the “treat” scale.
If you are on the SCD or GAPS diets you know you cannot have chocolate.
Cocoa powder is not allowed on SCD (it is on GAPS if you can tolerate it) because it has some starches in it.
The solution is cocoa butter – pure food grade cocoa ( cacao) butter may be used to impart the mild taste of chocolate.
While cocoa solids (powder) are what lends a chocolate bar its characteristic flavor and color, cocoa butter provides smoothness. Cocoa solids contain most of the antioxidants associated with chocolate, however they also contain the greatest concentration of the psychoactive chemicals caffeine and theobromine, which are mainly absent in the cocoa butter.
For people wishing to avoid the sugars, starches and neuro-stimulants in chocolate, cocoa butter is the way to go.Print
