Walnut Fudge


 January’s retreat is FULL!!! And just 3 spots left for February’s. Give up the cold for a little while and come sun it and fun it with me! Be sure to check the deets on the vitamix incentive.

Cocoa Walnut Fudge

As I may have mentioned before, I taught 19 classes in a little over two months. Some of those classes get repeated and you know what? I don’t really like doing the same things twice. The recipe below was from a sweet treat recipe I often use in my Veggie Transition Workshop.

I am on holidays so here’s all you need to know: It has walnuts. It has dates. It has coconut oil. It has raisins. It has ground sesame seeds. And it has chocolate. Fool proof and amazingly delicious.


Walnut Fudge

1 cup walnuts
1?2 cup sesame seeds, ground or 1/2 cup tahini
11?2 cups pitted dates
11?2 cups raisins
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup cocoa or raw cacao
1/8 tsp salt

  • Pulse all ingredients in food processor until mixture holds together when pressed.
  • Press mixture into 9 inch square pan, and chill.
  • Cut into squares to serve.

Question of The Day: What are some creative things you’ve done with nuts? (Keep it clean ladies and gentlemen. Keep it clean!)

    Ohhhh, yesssssss. That's beautiful. It looks like it would be a delectable, chocolatey, rich slap in the face (unlike the kick in the stomach that eating peoples' holiday chocolates are...I'm still in pain from a Turtle!)... Thanks for making this an easy one Meghan. :o) In this weather we have even less energy but need these sweet treats even MORE! Have a tantalizing day, Odelia :-)

      I don't ever want to come home to winter :( Maybe I can hope from Jamaica to St. Lucia and skip the winter bit in between.

    Well...if we absolutely MUST keep it clean ... home made raw chocolate covered almonds sprinkled with coconut. So good! Hope you're having a great vacation

    Just discovered a super quick, super easy treat. Slice open a large Medjool date, remove the pit, add a walnut half. Tastes a lot like a date square. Yummy.

    That looks very decadent!!! The most recent creative thing I've done with nuts recently is this pistachio and pumpkin crunch Please soak up some of that sun for's -7C here right now and I'm NOT enjoying it at all!!!!
  5. that looks delish! i make vegan fudge and also raw vegan brownies...the recipes resemble each other. But this recipe of yours reminds me of my raw vegan brownies. I dont use coconut oil and use added agave :) b/c I like them sweeter than just dates alone...but gosh, these look great!
