Who doesn’t love fudge? I know I do, but its usually make with a lot of stuff that is bad for you. Not this fudge, this fudge is full of healthy goodness. Black beans, coconut oil, agave nectar, maple syrup. Sounds healthy, right? It is, but you’d never know to eat it!
Of course, it’s easy to make too. You now me better than to think I would give you a recipe that was complicated. I like easy and quick and thats what this is. Just dump all the ingredients into a food processor, blend and spread into a pan. Well, that is if you have any left over after licking the bowl!
Putting it in the fridge gives it the “hard” texture that regular fudge has, but I have to admit that I usually eat more than my share from the bowl before it even goes in there.
- 2 15 oz cans black beans, rinsed and drained
- 3/4 cup coconut oil (works best if you melt it a bit so it is liquid)
- 1/4 cup agave nectar
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 3/4 cup baking cocoa
- 1 tablespoon instant coffee
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon stevia extract
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- Line an 8" x 8" baking pan with saran wrap (will help you get the fudge out easier)
- Put all the ingredients into a food processor or high powered blender and mix until well blended. You can give it a taste at this point and it it's not sweet enough feel free to add sweetener of your choice. I usually don't add any.
- Spread the batter into the baking pan. The batter should be rather thick.
- Put in the freezer or fridge until hard (about 1 hour in fridge). Remove from pan and slice into squares.
- You can freeze these for longer storage, just be sure to thaw at room temperature or in the fridge so the coconut oil doesn't melt!
