Do you need more coconut oil in your diet? Coconut Almond fudge is a really yummy treat that would make a great holiday gift. It satisfies that chocolate craving that many of us have, but with the nutrients that we need. One piece of this fudge is very satisfying, and is a more desserty classy version of a fat bomb.
Tips for making Coconut Almond Fudge Bars
- Even if you are allergic to chocolate (or don't want to eat it) you can still make these bars, just use carob powder instead of cocoa. Be sure to add the chocolate extract, it helps the flavor.
- Be sure to follow the directions on using the parchment paper. If not, you will be chipping the fudge out of the pan!
Coconutty Fudge Bars
2 dozen small squares, 188 calories per square
- 2 cups crispy almonds
- 1 cup coconut oil, softened
- 1 cup raw honey or grade B maple syrup (or equivalent of low carb sweetener – I love Swerve) – NOTE: I use half the amount of sweetener equivalent with great results!
- 1 cup carob or cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 2 teaspoons chocolate extract (if using carob powder)
- 1/2 teaspoon celtic sea salt (and vanilla sea salt sprinkled on top is WONDERFUL)
Place all ingredients in a food processor and process until well blended. Line a large loaf pan with parchment paper and spread mixture about 1/2 inch thick. Wrap up in parchment paper and refrigerate several hours. Cut into small squares and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.PAID ENDORSEMENT DISCLOSURE: In order for me to support my blogging activities, I may receive monetary compensation or other types of remuneration for my endorsement, recommendation, testimonial and/or link to any products or services from this blog.
