What’s In This Vegan Walnut Fudge Recipe?

  • Peanut butter: or any nut butter of your choice! You can use either creamy or chunky peanut butter, but I went with chunky because it is what I always keep in the pantry.
  • Maple syrup: for a naturally sweet fudge, made without refined sugar. You can also use raw honey (although tehcnically isn’t vegan) which would be equally delicious.
  • Coconut oil: melted to thin the batter
  • Cacao powder (or cocoa powder): I use a natural raw cacao powder from Trader Joe’s but you can use any brand you have, as long as it is unsweetened.
  • Vanilla extract: for a little extra depth of flavor
  • Pinch of salt: again, for a hint of flavor
  • Walnuts: for texture in the fudge as well as sprinkled on top!

How Do I Make This Vegan Walnut Fudge Recipe?

  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the peanut butter, maple syrup, coconut oil, cacao powder, vanilla extract, and pinch of salt. Mix until the fudge becomes smooth and well incorporated.
  2. Fold the walnuts into the mix, saving some to sprinkle on the top.
  3. Place the fudge in the freezer, and slice once it has hardened.

This fudge will soften when left out at room temperature, so I recommend leaving it in the freezer or refrigerator.

Dietary Modifications

  • This recipe is naturally vegan, vegetarian and dairy free!
  • It is also gluten free.
  • And refined sugar free 🙂
  • To make this nut free, you can substitute tahini or sunflower butter for the peanut butter, and leave out the nuts.
