Sometimes I try to make my chocolate cravings go away by making more ‘healthy’ treats (like here, here and here!).  This recipe caught my eye from the Sally’s Baking Addiction website.  I changed it a little – the original recipe was for cookies, but I made it into a slice so I could more easily portion the recipe into the 16 it called for (and stopped me from eating too much of it before letting it set!).  I also didn’t have enough sunflower seeds for the original recipe, so just added chopped nuts (almonds instead of peanuts), changed the peanut butter to almond butter and added a little bit of cinnamon, just to give it a little more ‘zing’.   

This chocolate fudge nut slice has a definite dark-chocolate flavor to it – but I love it, and it is very more-ish – as those in my office can testify!
