Give Your Tastebuds a Treat.

In this version of my popular coconut butter fudge I’ve brought together warm spices like cinnamon, cardamom, and ginger and matched them up with the sweet-tart complexities of orange zest. No more boring fat bombs for you!

Don’t Worry, This Fudge Is Good for You Too!

If you are looking for ways to get more healthy fats into your diet without any refined sugars then this is your answer. Coconut butter is full of healthy fat and fiber, making it a great high-fat low-carb choice. Almonds and almond butter have a moderate amount of protein and are high in healthy fats. They also boast a generous amount of minerals like calcium, phosphorus, and potassium.

Preparing the Fudge.

Recipe yields 30 servings. 

Soften the coconut butter in a warm water bath or in the oven with the light on. Have the rest of the ingredients at room temperature. In a mixing bowl or your stand mixer, combine all the ingredients and whip with beaters or a whisk until the mixture is light and fluffy. Stop every minute or so to scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula. This recipe should take about 3 minutes to whip up.

Line an 8 by 8-inch baking pan with parchment paper and pour the fudge into the pan. Smooth it down in an even layer. Top it with the roasted almonds. Refrigerate the fudge for about 1 hour or until it’s set up enough to cut. Cut the fudge into 30 equal portions and store them in the refrigerator. This fudge softens at room temp so keep it cool!
