Fudge was a treat my family made often when I was young. More times than not, it was the dessert made for birthdays and celebrations. The kind we made though was not healthy at all- packed with sugar and other undesirable ingredients.

This fudge, on the other hand, is packed with healthy fats from the coconut oil and almond butter, is naturally sweetened with real maple syrup, and it’s just as delicious!

This fudge does need to stay in the fridge or freezer. It gets soft pretty fast at room temperature. Sinking your teeth into cold fudge is so good though! So it’s not a bad thing at all!

You can use any nut butter you want for this. I used almond butter to keep it paleo, but you can use peanut butter if you'd like. You can also use sunflower seed butter to make it nut free if there’s a nut allergy you're working around.

This coconut oil fudge is creamy, sweet, and so delicious! If you are looking for a healthier fudge- this is it!

    My husband follows the Paleo Diet exclusively and I follow most of the time. We’ve both lost weight which wasn’t the main goal. We just wanted to eat healthier and feel better. This fudge totally satisfies my husband’s sweet tooth...chocolate! It always comes out perfect and can be put together in about 5 minutes.

    Should I use Dutch processed or natural cocoa powder?


    • Jessica DeMay says

      Hi Stacey- I like cacao powder, but out of those two I would use natural cocoa powder.


  3. Tania says

    So good! And I love the versatility in butters. Took longer to cool than I thought. I used cashew butter and honey but it really does the job,

      Thanks, Kath! I'm so glad you like it and yes, super versatile.

    If I use peanut butter should I use natural or regular?

      Hi Amy- I would recommend natural. Hope you love it!
