Its always nice to have a little treat stashed in the freezer, while I would love to down an entire Theo bar with a glass of wine every night, I thought I should come up with a kinder, healthier alternative. I worked a few recipes into one a came up with this freezer fudge and depending on what kind of ingredients you have on hand you can easily substitute things or adjust it make it raw.
This is my usual raw fudge recipe but I wanted to make something a little creamier and with a bit of PB, the unsweetened coconut flakes gave it the little crunch that I was hoping for. It sets up nicely, is creamy melt in your mouth goodness and not too sweet like some raw fudge recipes. If you would like to make this totally raw then simply use raw ingredients and omit the chocolate chips, nibs would make a nice substitute.
Kinda Raw PB Fudge
1c organic coconut oil (room temp)
1c organic, unsweetened peanut butter (I like crunchy)
1/4c (or to taste) maple syrup
1/3c unsweetened coconut flakes
1tsp vanilla extract
pinch of salt
5-6 heaping TBS unsweetened cocoa powder
semi sweet chocolate chips (optional)
chopped almonds (optional)
Mix coconut oil, peanut butter, coconut flakes, salt, vanilla, and maple syrup until well incorporated. Pour half the mixture into a loaf pan or similar small pan. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top if you’d like, stick in the freezer. With the remaining mixture add cocoa powder, you can also mix in some coconut flakes and nuts here if you’d like. Once the first mixture has set, pour the chocolate mix on top. Freeze for 20 mins or till set. Love.
