I deliberately omitted the words raw, gluten free and vegan from the title so I didn’t scare anyone away… although after eating a large majority of this high fiber fudge I may reconsider my decision so I don’t have to share!
For some reason I’ve always shied away from ‘vegan’ recipes. When I think of vegan I think of dirty hippies, playing hacky sack and eating granola. I do not by any means think of delicious mouth watering fudge. My best friend CC made me vegan cookies one time and they were to die for so I attempted to make some raw vegan dirty hippie fudge. I found a recipe for Chocolate Fig Freezer Fudge from the ‘Chocolate Fig’ food blog and changed a few things around so I could easily fit it into my macros.
1 cup pitted Medjool dates
1 cup raw walnuts and almonds
1/4 cup raw cocoa
2 ripe bananas
1/2 cup raw cocoa
4 tbsp raw honey
4 tbsp almond butter
1. Mix together all of the ‘bottom’ ingredients into a food processor.
2. Spread in a large glass baking pan.
3. Mix ‘top’ ingredients into a food processor.
4. Spread over top bottom layer. Freeze for 30 minutes.

*I was shocked how easily the bars came out of the pan. I guess those hippies do know a thing or two about peace!
