This fudge is healthy and easy! My little man loves to have his chocolate in the morning....
this time of year, I always begin to crave sugar...this is an easy low sugar, high in good fat dessert....
A few tablespoons of almond butter adds protein, flavor & texture
It seemed appropriate for this lavender shortbread to be my first blog post since it was the recipe that began my curiosity with how ingredients work. Any good shortbread should have a decadent fatty mouth-feel and this one does not disappoint! This delicious shortbread is vegan, gluten-free, easy to make and will keep for several days in an airtight container. The best part of this low sugar dessert is the versatility; from Lavender to vanilla to pistachio & rose to hibiscus or favorite dried tea. The possibilities are endless!
7/8 cup of earth balance or vegan shortening
1 Tablespoon vanilla bean paste or 1 vanilla bean (1 teaspoon of other liquid flavoring)

2 Tablespoons ground lavender flowers
2 cups gluten free oat flour (you can also use a gluten free mix)
