Healthy No-Cook Fudge with Only 5 Ingredients
By Daisy Luther
Do you ever have a craving for something sweet that won’t blow your healthy eating lifestyle?
Try this healthy no-cook fudge with only 5 ingredients. It just takes about 5 minutes of hands-on time.
Healthy fudge? What? It’s true!
It’s gluten-free, grain-free, paleo, primal, and contains no artificial ingredients. Everything in it is pantry-stable, so you’ll always have the ingredients on-hand.
If you are limiting your carbs, you can experiment with reducing the amount of honey in the recipe. We’ve dropped it to as little as 1/4 of a cup. The almond butter has a lot of natural sweetness.
Healthy No-Cook Fudge
- 1/2 cup coconut oil (I love this kind)
- 1/2 cup high-quality cocoa powder (This is rich, intense, and simply the best cocoa powder around)
- 1/2 cup smooth almond butter or cashew butter
- 1/4 cup raw honey (we use honey from a nearby farm)
- 1/2 teaspoon Mexican vanilla
Plop all of the ingredients into your food processor (I have the Ninja food processor and it rocks) and pulse until everything is well-mixed. Your batter will look like this:
Place liners into a cupcake tin.
Drop a heaping spoonful of batter into each liner and then gently press it down with the back of a spoon.
Place your fudge-loaded muffin tin in the freezer for 20 minutes.
Then, try in vain to get a picture of the prettiest one before your daughter takes a bite.
