Brazil Nut Fudge [Vegan, Raw]
- 3/4 cup raw organic Brazil nuts
- 1/2 cup raw organic almonds
- 1/3 cup pumpkin seed butter
- 2 medium dates, pitted
- 1/3 cup raw organic cacao powder
- 1/2 teaspoon maca
- 1/2 teaspoon mesquite powder
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 4 tablespoons coconut sugar
- 1/2 small ripe banana
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 cup raw organic cacao powder for topping
- In a food processor, combine the Brazil nuts and almonds. Process until a flour-like texture forms.
- Add the pumpkin seed butter, dates, cacao powder, maca, mesquite, vanilla, and coconut sugar. Blend well until moist and sticky.
- Add the banana and salt and process again to combine.
- Be aware that over processing will bring out the oil in the nuts and make the fudge hard to spread. Just process as needed.
- Transfer the mixture onto parchment paper and use a spatula to spread it about 2-inches thick. If you would like a thicker fudge that’s fine. It will just yield fewer pieces.
- Once it’s spread, score the fudge into even squares and place in the freezer. The fudge should be set in one hour. Top with cacao powder and serve.
