How’s this for a tasty little morsel to brighten up your Tuesday: Healthy, no-bake, four-ingredient fudge. (Really!) I’m not going to lie—especially if you’re trying to nix processed sugar from your diet like I am, this easy recipe is kinda life-changing. And don’t worry if you’re not super into dates or walnuts as separate entities. Mark thinks dates are downright gross by themselves and he’s a big, big, BIGGG fan of this fudge.
Healthy No-Bake Chocolate Fudge
- 1 cup pitted dates
- scant 1 cup walnuts
- 1/3 cup raw cacao powder (Standard unsweetened cocoa powder works too. It may not be a “super food” and all that, but it will still be tasty.)
- ¼ tsp vanilla
- Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend until crumbly.
- Transfer the crumbly mixture to a baking pan or cookie sheet, and press into a little rectangle of your desired thickness (you probably won’t fill the entire pan unless you’re working with a tiny one).
- Cut into squares and enjoy immediately or store in the fridge for later.
These little fudge squares are pretty irresistible and they even passed the kiddo taste test. (Mark’s little cousin Bennett went back for thirds.) I bet they’d be even better with a little cinnamon, a dash of chili powder or some shredded coconut added into the mix.
P.S. My healthy chocolate chia seed pudding is pretty good, too.
