This recipe came out of Clean Eating, one of a couple magazines a friend lent me recently. Look forward to more recipes from here!

Lily is especially loving helping herself to a little square of this healthy and decadent treat throughout the day and after supper. The only thing I would change about this recipe (and I did below) would be to add chopped nuts or shredded coconut for a little more crunch. Simple to make and so delicious!

  1. Blend coconut butter and honey until smooth.
  2. Stir in vanilla and then cocoa powder.
  3. Stir in nuts or coconut and then smooth on parchment paper.

Coconut Cocoa Fudge

* I used coconut oil instead of butter because I haven’t yet found coconut butter here. I imagine this is why I’d like to add nuts or shredded coconut to the recipe. Coconut butter is made with the meat of the coconut and the oil is just the oil. I would use coconut butter instead of oil if I had the chance but the fudge made with coconut oil is still wonderful delicious.

    Oh, nice recipe. I am not a sweet chocolate person, but my husband loves fudge. I just don’t like the recipes with the white sugar. This looks like a great option – I’ll have to surprise him with a batch soon! :)

    i’ve been playing around with a recipe like this, and adding a local mushroom powder as an immune booster – the rich flavors of the coconut and cocoa mask the slight flavor of the powder and no one is the wiser! (well, actually, eliza is convinced that it’s the powder that makes them taste so good…ok!) a friend of mine has found something called “coconut manna”, which i think is whole coconut, not just the oil, and i’m wanting to try that…so good!!

    Hi Annie,
    This looks like a healthy recipie for sure! One thing you could try – in the absence of coconut butter – is to blend dry, dessicated coconut with the oil in a blender! It might must immulsify if you blend it for long enough at a high speed. Might be worth a try!
    Hope you all had a good long weekend. I am just home from my hiking trip. Will call this weekend.
    Love, Jan

    I’ll have to try that!

    I’ve been making coconut macarons alot recently and the first step is to make coconut butter. You just process shredded coconut in the food processor for 4-7 minutes until it turns to a rather liquidy butter.

    I imagine if you started the fudge recipe with making coconut butter, you could probably make the whole thing in the food processor.

    Here’s the recipe for the macaroons, I highly recommend them!

    This sounds (and looks) so delicious! It’s definitely next on my desserts to-do!
    I shared a link to this on my blog this week. I’m thinking some of my readers might enjoy a simple, great recipe. (
    Thanks for all the great recipes you share here.

  9. Coconut was on the list of foods I was reacting to (2 years ago) but I think I want to test it and see if I still react to it. This might be the perfect way. :)

    This recipe is our new favorite dessert! It doesn’t help that it’s the holidays I suppose. Fudge, holidays…yum. After making this recipe now many many times, I’ve made a few adjustments and linked to this and shared it on my blog today. Truly a recipe all gluten, allergy, vegans should have in their cupboards. Cheers to you and your beautiful family, and may you have a wonderful new year!

    My coconut butter tastes pretty sweet so I reduced the honey. It tastes great!
