Raw Coconut Fudge

I made some raw coconut oil fudge this weekend. Here's the original recipe:

1 1/2 cups coconut oil
1 1/2 cups raw honey
1 cup cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional, tastes fine without it)

Dump it all in the blender and mix till smooth. Pour it into a pan (I use a 9x13 glass pan) and let it set up. Depending on your climate and time of year you may need to refrigerate it if it's over 70 degrees or so in your kitchen. Cut into small pieces and try not to eat it all the first day.


I made a half recipe & put it in an 8X8 pan, and it was really thin. I just stirred it in a bowl. Next time, I will make a 2/3 recipe, use wax paper to line the pan, a little less salt & less honey. Also, I needed to keep it refrigerated.

This would be good with some raw almonds or shredded coconut.

Hello Brenna!

Thank you, thank you, thank you.....!
I was just thinking of a healthy in-between meal to concoct as I'm beginning to get tired of my "usuals," so to speak.

The timing for discovering your recipe could not have been better. Thanks a lot!

Yes, you can also use heavy cream, but why if coconut oil is well within your reach.

Coconut oil has health benefits that can give you strong hair and skin, help you lose weight, all the way to being an ideal food for diabetics. Coconut oil's predominant medium chain fatty acids (MCFA) don't need insulin to feed our cells.

Just my two cents.

Hi Brenna!

The Blogger service seems to have made a "mix-up" in my post. My previous post in Lyn's blog was, for some reason, included in my post in your blog.

I sincerely apologize for this. It wasn't my intention at all...
