Raw snacks are essential for having on hand when following a raw food lifestyle. Knowing you can “indulge” once in a while in a sinful treats makes this lifestyle rewarding. When you discover this mouthwatering fudge that is raw, is made with organic almonds, raw coconut oil, and unsweetened carob powder, you will begin to wonder how it is possible to have all these healthy ingredients in such a great tasting snack.
As an extra added bonus this raw fudge was literally made in about 5 minutes from start to finish, making it an excellent choice for people on the go, ( which these days seems to be almost everyone)
- 1 cup of nut butter ( I make my own using organic raw almonds and a bit of olive or vegetable oil to make the butter smooth) blended well in the food processor
You may purchase already made almond butter as well
- ½ cup of unsweetened carob powder
- ¼ cup of organic coconut oil ( melted gently on stove top, or inside of pot of boiling water in a glass jar)
- 1 tsp of vanilla extract
- ½ tsp sea salt
- handful of organic raw walnuts
Process the nut butter or purchase it already made if desired, next add melted coconut oil, then carob powder, sea salt and vanilla extract.
Remove from processor and transfer to a bowl, fold in walnuts
Put in glass or metal square container lined with parchment paper, and put in freezer to harden. When hardened take out and cut into squares.
Keeps best in freezer
Try adding peppermint extract instead of vanilla and change up the nuts, or leave out entirely for a smooth creamier like fudge.
I hope you enjoy these raw snacks as much as our family does. It will sure to be a family favorite on your sweets table!
I just love this book of healthy snacks and treats of raw cakes, cookies, brownies, pies, puddings, candies, pastries, and frozen treats by chef Amber Shea Crawley. In case you hadn’t guessed by now, many of the recipes I have used are from within these pages. If you are stuck for ideas and inspiration, then I invite you to buy this book and I know you will enjoy eating what you made :):)
