When it comes to fudge, it's likely that you're either all about crumbly fudge, or soft, creamy fudge. This rich, chocolatey fudge is made creamy, thanks to tahini, while Medjool dates add natural sweetness and a slightly gooey texture. It's the perfect evening snack when enjoyed with a cup of your favorite tea!

5-Ingredient Tahini Fudge [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Vegan


  • 4 pitted Medjool dates, soaked until softened, then drained
  • 3/4 cup tahini
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted and slightly cooled
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • A pinch of coarse sea salt, plus more for garnish (optional)
  • Sesame seeds, for garnish (optional)


  1. Lightly grease an 8 1/2-inch loaf pan and set aside.
  2. In the bowl of a food processor fitted with the “S” blade, pulse the dates a few times, until finely chopped
  3. Add the tahini and process until the dates are puréed and incorporated with the tahini.
  4. Add the remaining ingredients, except the salt and sesame seeds, and process until combined. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl and process again, to make sure everything is incorporated.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and smooth into an even layer. Sprinkle the salt and/or sesame seeds, if using, evenly over the top.
  6. Refrigerate until solidified, then cut into squares for serving.

Meyer Lemon Coconut Cream Tarts With Mint and Lavender [Vegan, Raw, Gluten-Free]

To make the crust: put the oats and almonds into a high speed blender and blend until it turns into a thick, slightly crumbly paste. If needed or desired, add a little maple syrup, then press into two tartlet molds or whatever shapes/molds you like. Put in the fridge. To make the lemon coconut cream: put the coconut and cashews into your high speed blender and blend until it turns into a thick paste/butter. Stir in a 1/4 cup lemon juice and the maple syrup until evenly combined (or blend it in). If you'd like more lemon flavour, add more lemon juice! I like mine quite tart - no pun intended, seriously - so I used a full 1/2 cup. Spread this mixture evenly into your crusts, then let them sit in the fridge overnight or for at least a couple hours so the flavours can get to know each other. Garnish with mint, basil, lemon zest, maple syrup or whatever else you like! Life is good!

I did not like it; it was not sweet at all and it tasted like Tahini with cocoa powder on top.
