Rejoice in the awesome timelessness of honey and almond! Now whipped up together in a satisfying, healthy fudge!
Saturated fats have been demonized for too long. Adding an appropriate amount of healthy saturated fats back into your diet can and will improve your overall health. I’m giving you the perfect way to do it. This honey almond fudge is reminiscent of a timeless classic candy but without the refined oils and sweeteners.
What Makes This Fudge So Special?
It’s real food without a fake ingredient in sight. It’s only five simple ingredients. It takes mere minutes to make. And, it satisfies hunger and cravings without caving.
The tender meat of the coconut pureed into a silky smooth butter. Coconut butter is high in healthy fats and fairly low in carbohydrates, making it a perfect choice to add body to any fudge. I recommend this brand.

Remember to use high-quality raw or pastured butter for maximum health benefits. Butter is one of the best sources for vitamins A, K, and D. Grass-fed and pastured butters are also full of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). CLA helps us build muscle and stay a healthy weight. It also has anti-cancer properties.
Regular roasted almond butter can be used in this recipe although it’s not something that I would recommend you eat every day. Nuts, while full of fats and protein, are not super easy for our bodies to digest. If you have experience soaking nuts and making the Nourishing Traditions style crispy nuts (for better digestion) then those could ideally be ground and used. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, then I recommend you buy and read this book — it will transform the way you eat and live!
Nature’s perfect sweetener! A little raw honey goes a long way and keeps you healthy besides. Raw honey can help with seasonal allergies, digestion, sleep disorders, immunity, and more! It’s best to buy raw honey from a small family farm or local producer who practices proper hive management. Support your local economy and ecology at the same time!!!
Make sure to use an unrefined salt that still contains the many beneficial minerals that our bodies crave. Sea salt from Iceland, Himalayan Salt, or salt from ancient sea beds are my favorite choices.
Honey + Almond = Fudge LOVE
A match made in heaven…
- Have all the ingredients at room temperature. The coconut butter may need to be warmed in a hot water bath to become soft and smooth.
- In a large mixing bowl add all the ingredients. I use my KitchenAid mixer for these next steps.
- Whip the mixture well either by hand with a whisk, or with beaters.
- Line a container with parchment paper and pour the whipped mixture into the container.
- Chill the fudge for at least 30 minutes before cutting and serving.
- Keep the fudge refrigerated as it softens quickly.
