Low-carb coconut chocolate fudge recipe

I’ve become a full-fledged fan of social networking over the past year or so. I don’t know if you’ve decided to take the 21st Century plunge into either Facebook or Twitter yet, but I HIGHLY encourage you to do so to connect with old friends and make some awesome new ones. There are nearly 1,000 friends on my Facebook page alone, but I also enjoy adding more each day. Feel free join the bandwagon.

One of those friends from Facebook shared a delicious new low-carb chocolate fudge recipe with me this week that I just couldn’t resist telling my readers about here at my blog. Her name is Fiona O’Dowd and she’s from Sydney, Australia (incidentally, there’s a pretty large contingent of regular LLVLC readers from the land down under comprising about 5% of my total visitors each day). It looks like she did a lot of experimenting in the kitchen to perfect this superb fudge recipe that I’m dying to try for myself sometime. It makes a rather large batch, so feel free to cut the recipe in half if you don’t want so many servings. Or, if you want more, DOUBLE IT! THANKS for this outstanding recipe, Fiona! ENJOY everyone!

FIONA’S WICKED LOW-CARB CHOCOLATE FUDGE

  • 1 cup organic full-fat coconut cream
  • 1 100g bar quality extra dark (86% cocoa) chocolate
  • 4 tablespoons of natural peanut or almond butter
  • 1/4 cup chopped dried apricots or cranberries (optional)
  • 1/2 cup whole raw nuts and seeds mix
  • 2 Tbs linseed sunflower almond (LSA) meal
  • 2 Tbs oat bran
  • 2 Tbs whole oats
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbs preferred sweetener

Start by adding the coconut cream (cans of organic coconut milk/cream are available at most health food stores and possibly even your grocery store) and vanilla extract to a small saucepan on VERY low heat. Break up the extra dark chocolate bar into chunks and add into pot. Add the nut butter and sweetener while continuously stirring until it all melts together into a smooth mixture.

Then add the dried fruit, nuts/seeds, LSA, oat bran, and oats and stir until fully blended. Spoon/pour the fudge mixture onto some waxed paper in a dish and place in the fridge until it cools and solidifies together. Place in a closed container or cover with foil in fridge to prevent it from drying out.

Enjoy small squares (chop into 1 1/2 cm squares) of this delicious healthy fudge for dessert and for small snacks throughout the day. This is about as good as it gets for a healthy yet delicious low-carb treat!

Even though this is a healthier dessert idea that’s lower in sugar and higher in nutrition than most sweet treats, keep in mind that it is still calorie dense, so keep your portions reasonable and don’t go hog wild eating it just because it’s “low-carb.”
