t h e m a y f i l e s is foremost a family blog, chronicling everyday life. Life including natural, healthy eating (with recipes thrown in at random), home educating (with ideas popping up sporadically), an attempt to homestead on .2 acres (with very meager yields), raising 3 of 4 children with a rare genetic disorder, and lots of highly personal family triumphs and failures. You may also find an eclectic array of musings on politics, exercise, sewing, emergency preparedness, backyard chickens, and religion. This blog isn't a campaign to glorify anyone or anything. Just simply a record.


Dark Chocolate Fudge: Healthy, Raw, Free of Refined Sugars

Nothing says the holidays like a delicious piece of melt in your mouth fudge...and the chocolate smeared, blissful face of your three-year-old.
This is a fabulous recipe for healthy fudge. Not low calorie...but delectable. This dark chocolate fudge is both raw and free of all refined sugars. It is chock full of healthy (albeit expensive) ingredients. We are packaging pieces of this for Great-Grandma and Mimi (grandma) for Christmas from the kiddo's.

Healthy Dark Chocolate Fudge


¾ c cocoa powder

¾ c fine almond flour

½ c pure maple syrup

¼ c virgin coconut oil

pinch of sea salt

Blend raw almonds in mixer until fine powder. Combine all ingredients and mix.

Cover and chill 1 hour or more.

2 ¼ c cocoa powder

2 ¼ c pure maple syrup (can substitute 1 c with brown rice syrup)

1 c virgin coconut oil (I buy mine in bulk from Mountain Rose Herbs. It is much more affordable)

Blend till completely smooth. Pour into chilled tart crust. Lift: drop to release air bubbles.

Store in freezer to keep firm.

Cute little girl with a chocolate mustache is not included in the recipe. Make your own. It's fun. Trust me!
