Who doesn’t love to have a healthy snack at home? And even better if that snack only has a handful of ingredients and is made in under 10 minutes! You just need to be patient to let the fudge sit in the freezer for a few hours to set…
Here is what you need:
7 tablespoons nut butter, I love using almond butter
3 tablespoons coconut oil
3 tablespoons raw honey, or any liquid sweetener you may prefer, agave, yacon or maple syrup work well too, or a mix of them
3 tablespoons raw cacao powder
1 tablespoon Maca powder, and extra to top the fudge with. Optional, but you won’t be able to call it Maca Fudge anymore, however it will still be delicious and addictive. 🙂
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
pinch of salt, optional
1/2 cup cashews (or any nut you prefer), crushed (chop them with a knife, or pack in a ziplock bag and crush them with a rolling pin)
How to do it:
Place a glass bowl into some hot water.
Now add all the ingredients except the crushed cashews into the glass bowl.
The hot water will help to melt the coconut oil and make the nut butter more creamy, so that you can easily mix everything together with a spoon or spatula.
Once everything is well combined, and looks extremely chocolatey and yummy, you can stir in the nuts.
Pour the mixture into a flat wide container, glass is preferred, but any container will do.
Sprinkle with some more Maca on top of it.
Place in fridge to let it set for a couple hours. The longer you let it sit, the firmer it will become. Once the fudge is set you can cut it into pieces.
Store in the fridge, as they will melt at room temperature.
Enjoy, and let us know what you think of it!
