- 100 g raw almonds
- 100 g raw cashews
- 100 g raw cacao nibs
- 250 g dried, pitted dates
- 100 g shredded or dessicated coconut
- big pinch sea salt
- 100 g coconut oil
Grind nibs on speed 9 for 30 secs and set aside
Grind nuts on speed 7 for 8 seconds and set aside
Grind dates and coconut on speed 8 for 30 seconds
Add other ground ingredients, salt and oil and mix on speed 5 till well combined
Place into a flat tray or dish and press down till flat and even. Score the fudge with a knife into bite size pieces. Refrigerate till hard (of freeze to be quicker), then cut or break pieces along score marks to separate pieces. Keep refrigerated so the coconut oil stays hard.
- For mint - use 10g fresh mint and grind with the cacao nibs or add 2-3 drops of pure peppermint essential oil
- For orange - use the zest of an organic orange (peel zest off with a veggie peeler) and grind zest with the nibs, or add 2-3 drops of pure orange essential oil
- For berry - add 2 Tbs of acai or maqui berry powder
For added green superpowers - add 2 Tbs of AFA algae flakes or your favourite green powder
For peanut decadence - add a couple of generous Tbs of peanut butter (40-50g) and a bit of extra salt
To add flavours:
With the dates, the drier dates work better than the softer medjool dates in this recipes. Be absolutely sure all the dates are in fact pitted, I always chop each one in half to make sure, as I had a chopped pip in my fudge once - not nice!
Combining nuts and dried fruit with flavours into balls is something that raw foodies and wholefood lovers often do as a sweet treat. I find the rolling of balls rather labour intensive and prefer the putting in a tray and cutting into squares option easier. I have experimented with various recipes and come up with this recipe with easy to remember quantities, that is easy to adapt with different flavours.
