Irresistible Walnut-Chocolate Fudge

Here’s one treat that I’ve been enjoying lately as a snack. Try one or two servings for a snack in between meals and not only will you satisfy your sweet tooth, it’ll likely brighten your mood (the cocoa also helps!).

Irresistible Chocolate Fudge by TheDessertAngel.com

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, liquefied
  • 1/4 cup almond butter (or nut butter of choice)
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp pure vanilla extract
  • Pinch of sea salt, to taste
  • 3/4 cup raw walnuts, roughly chopped

Instructions

1. With electric beaters, beat together the coconut oil and almond butter.
2. Sift in the cocoa powder and beat again until combined.
3. Pour in the maple syrup, vanilla, and salt and beat until smooth.
4. Stir in the walnuts.
5. Line a loaf pan with a piece of parchment paper. Scoop the chocolate mixture into the pan and spread out until even.
6. Freeze uncovered for about 1 hour, or until solid. Slice into small squares and enjoy!

These fudge squares contain coconut oil, which is nature’s richest source of medium-chain fatty acids (unlike most oils which are made of long-chain fatty acids which are difficult for the body to break down and thus strain the digestive system and causes the body to store fat).

The medium-chain fatty acids are easily digested by your body and sent directly to your liver where they are converted to energy rather than being stored as fat – so coconut oil can actually help stimulate your body’s metabolism and be a dieter’s secret weapon! So yes, you can have many treats like these a day and still lose weight 🙂
