Fudge. It says joy, delectation and satisfaction. You’re not allowed it though, are you?
Well, the times of deprivation are done. I’m determined, as many are, to find us delicious substitutes in the new world order of treats.
What you’ll need
150ml coconut oil
50g raw cacao powder
150ml rice syrup or coconut syrup (maple syrup or honey are both fine if you like those & are fine with them)
90g mixed activated nuts (can be all one type, or a mix of whatever you have in the pantry. New to activating? Read here to learn more)
50g dessicated coconut (220 FREE)
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 teaspoon cinnamon
What to do
Get a little shallow baking tin ready (about 20cm x 15cm) with some parchment paper
Blitz your nuts in a processor.
Add everything else except the chia seeds.
Blitz into a paste.
Stir through the chia seeds
Blob the whole mixture out onto baking tin and press out to an even thickness of about 1-1.5cm ‘high’.
Set in fridge for an hour or 2. Cut into small squares. Serve in a precious little dish reserved for delicacies & store in the fridge for a week – good luck with that!
Kitchen note: Best kept in fridge between sittings (if there’s more than one sitting!) as the coconut oil will melt if the temperature is hot.
Nut free: Up the coconut to 100g and add 50g pumpkin seeds instead. Still delicious.
Warning: If you have a large family or are having friends over, double this recipe and tin size. It won’t last long!
Real Treats. Happy Bodies.
