Almond & Coconut Butter Fudge.001

Tis The Season

It is that time of year again. You know, where you bring out a platter of delicious cookies and holiday treats for everyone to enjoy!

As most of you already know, most cookies and holiday treats contain a ton of sugar and wheat and it can be really hard to find alternative options when baking for the holidays.

That is why I created this delicious fudge recipe. Fudge doesn’t typically have wheat in it, but it does have a ton of sugar. By using two key ingredients, you can eliminate a lot of the sugar and your fudge will have a natural sweetness to it.

What are these two ingredients? Coconut butter and blanched almond butter.

Making Your Own Coconut Butter

Alright, have you ever made your own coconut butter before? Store-bought coconut butter can be very expensive. It doesn’t have to be expensive because it is super easy to make!

Coconut butter has a natural sweetness to it. You can eliminate a lot of sugar just by using coconut butter.

Here is a video that I did that shows you how easy it is to make coconut butter.

What do you need? A food processor, unsweetened coconut, and 5 minutes time! That is it, for real!

How to Make Your Own Blanched Almond Butter

The second ingredient to making a terrific holiday fudge is blanched almond butter!

I know, many of you might be wondering why I use “blanched” almond butter over “regular” almond butter. In short…it is easier to digest.

I wrote an article last month that includes a terrific recipe and explains the benefits of blanched almond butter and how to make your own. Be sure to check it out.

Now I will note here, if you’d like to make this fudge with regular almond butter, you sure can. It will still taste delicious!
