Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (112g) refined coconut oil
  • ¾ cup (72g) cocoa powder (preferably Dutch-processed)
  • ¾ cup (192g) creamy almond butter (or nut butter of choice)
  • cup (104g) maple syrup (can also use honey)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract optional
  • teaspoon salt optional
  • Flaky sea salt optional

Instructions

  1. Line a small baking pan with foil or parchment paper - I used a 9x5” loaf pan for a thick fudge. You can use an 8” square pan if you want thinner pieces.
  2. Melt coconut oil in a saucepan over medium-low heat or in the microwave for about 30 seconds to a minute. Whisk in the cocoa powder, nut butter, maple syrup, and if using, vanilla extract and salt, into the melted coconut oil until completely smooth.
  3. Pour mixture into the prepared pan. Refrigerate until chilled and firm, about 2 hours.
  4. Using a sharp knife, cut into squares. Sprinkle with flaky sea salt if desired. Store at cool room temperature or in the refrigerator.
