You only need seven ingredients to make this rich, moist, super delicious, and simple-to-make vegan fudge. Also, it requires no heat so no messing with a tricky candy thermometer needed, hooray!
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup almond butter
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
pinch of sea salt
3/4 cup chopped walnuts
This simple and easy recipe comes from the fabulous vegan food blog Oh She Glows (she recently published her first cookbook, that quickly made it to the New York Time's bestseller list, which makes me super happy because that means millions of people, vegans and non-vegans, are buying a cookbook that only carries recipes that are free of animal products. Come to think of it, why don't I have a copy yet?).
In a large bowl (or stand mixer) mix together coconut oil, almond butter, cocoa powder, and maple syrup. It's going to be pretty gooey and drippy. Go ahead and give it a taste. Mmmmmm, right?
Then put in the vanilla and walnuts and give the batter a few stirs to coat all the walnuts. My mom gave me this large bottle of authentic Mexican vanilla, which I think is the best kind of vanilla, but any kind will work.
Line a loaf pan with parchment paper, pour the batter in, and smooth it out as evenly as you can. Then stick it in the freezer for an hour or until it solidifies. No need to cover it.
When hardened, place the fudge with the parchment paper onto a cutting board and slice into small squares and enjoy. That's it! Easiest recipe ever. By the way, if you're not planning on eating the fudge in one sitting then it should go into the refrigerator or it'll get soft.
Have a sweet week everyone!
