Some Questions re: Fat and Chocolate

I'm going to be starting the Kickstart and I can't wait! I signed up for the Jan Kickstart but that fell right when I was making a very stressful move so I didn't stick with it. Now I'm more settled so I'm planning on doing the 21 days straight through .
I had a few questions in looking over the PCRM resources and 21 Day KickStart website. I know that PCRM is very much about low fat and I don't see fats mentioned anywhere. However, I do notice that in recipes for the kickstart there are small amounts of oil or nuts/seeds. So does that mean that small amounts of either are fine for the kickstart?
Also, I'm a huge chocoholic and I'm trying to cut that out for the kickstart. I have a fudge that I make very simply with raw carob powder, nut butter, and dates. I use small amounts (like a tbsp of nut butter, a tsp of carob powder, and 1 date per serving) so I'm wondering if that's ok as a chocolate substitute or the kickstart.
