Recipe: Almond Butter Fudge

Alright, here is another life changing recipe... No big deal.  As I mentioned, I am off of refined sugar for the summer.  I've been pretty good for the most part and haven't been craving things very often.  On occasion I will want something a bit sweeter than a cucumber, which is where the fruit crumble and this almond butter fudge come in.  This 4 ingredient almond butter fudge is sweetened by the dried dates, which I wasn't a HUGE fan of initially.  Once it's all blended in though it actually doesn't taste datey, which I am very happy with.  Instead the dates give it a bit of a chewy texture which is also something I am happy with!  The only real downside is that it needs to be kept in the freezer until you serve it.

Here it is...

Ingredients (makes approx 12 1.5" x 1.5" squares)

  1. 1 cup all-natural, unsweetened, unsalted almond butter
  2. 1/4 cup coconut oil (don't decrease this as it will not hold together!)
  3. 1/2 cup dried dates
  4. A sprinkle of sea salt
Optional add-ins:
  1. 2 tbsp shredded (unsweetened) coconut
  2. Cinnamon
Directions:
  1. Process/blend almond butter and dried dates until relatively smooth (if you like bigger chunks of dates, blend less)
  2. Mix in a bowl with softened (not melted) coconut oil, coconut and cinnamon.
  3. Line a container/baking dish with plastic wrap and pour in the mixture.  Smooth it out. 
  4. Freeze for at least an hour before serving.  Keep in freezer until you are ready to eat.
  5. Lift plastic wrap up and remove the whole thing from the container.  Cut into pieces.  Enjoy!
  6. Store the remainder in the freezer
