Easy Raw Fudge (Vegan, Paleo)

Copied and adapted from Raw Food, Real World

makes 16-20 pieces

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup raw almond butter
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

In a medium bowl, mix together the nut butter and coconut oil until smooth. (This works best if the ingredients are slightly warm! Alternatively, you could blend them together using a food processor.) Add in the cocoa powder, maple syrup, sea salt and vanilla, and stir until smooth and creamy.

Transfer the mixture to a dish lined with plastic wrap, for easy removal.

Place the dish in the freezer, and allow the fudge to set for at least an hour before slicing and serving. Thanks to the coconut oil, this raw fudge will melt quickly if left to sit in a warm room, so it’s best served directly from the freezer.

Store the leftovers in a sealed container in the freezer.
