Coconut Oil Fudge recipe made with only 3 ingredients. Dairy free, vegan and naturally sweetened. | ifoodreal.com

So, this coconut oil fudge…I have not had added sugar, even maple syrup or honey, for 3 weeks now. This Halloween I decided not to even have 1 candy because when they say sugar is more addicting than crack that applies to me. If I don’t have it, I don’t crave it. Otherwise, I could easily eat 2-3 servings of ice cream or 2 large chocolate bars. So, on Halloween I had my wine and a few of these fudge bars. THEY ARE SO TASTY AND GOOD FOR YOU!

In case you are wondering what happened to our Halloween candy. After boys ate as much as they wanted that night, everything went straight to garbage. No donations because I believe no one needs this cr@p, and yes I felt bad for the environment but I couldn’t unwrap 200 candies. I recycle even bread bag clips throughout the year, so I do better than many folks.

This melt in your mouth coconut oil fudge is made only with 3 ingredients: ripe bananas, coconut oil and cacao powder. Not a pinch of salt or cinnamon or drop of vanilla. I think I ate the whole pan over a week by myself. Whenever I want an afternoon snack or a treat, this fudge saved my life.

In case you are wondering why no honey or maple syrup. Just because I still need to feel a bit more comfortable in my jeans. Jeans can be a real B1t$#! I feel so good in my Lululemon throughout the week and then weekend comes…Honestly, when I do not eat many sweet desserts, even healthy ones, I feel much more energetic and lighter LOL.

So, I had this idea to sweeten something chocolate naturally. My choice is either dates or bananas. I thought sweet ripe bananas would offset bitter cacao powder perfectly. And to help bind it together all I had to do was add my favourite coconut oil. I love it – some days I eat coconut oil by the spoon. So, here you have coconut oil fudge that is full of potassium, naturally occurring sugars, antioxidants and healthy fats.

Since our kitchen remodel, we took out a microwave and this is how I have been melting chocolate chips and coconut oil lately. Works like a charm. Could oil spill and cause fire? Maybe. But I’m watching it closely and make sure measuring cup is sitting steady on a stove’s grid. Also make sure not to fill the cup fully with solid coconut oil as it expands during melting. This is a Ukrainian hack for you.:)

All you have to do is blend 3 ingredients in a food processor or powerful blender. Pour into baking dish and freeze for 2-3 hours. That is it! I tried to sprinkle salt on top but bananas and salt…nah, not for me.

In case you are wondering, yes this coconut oil fudge does have banana taste. I love bananas so much, I buy 24-30 at a time. I know, I might look like a zookeeper but we love bananas, same story with apples. Because we barely eat any processed snacks (some wholesome we do), we consume a lot of fruit. No human will be born ever to convince me that too much fruit is too much sugar – that is completely different sugar paired with fiber, nutrients and vitamins.

Enjoy!

    I was laughing reading this!! So true about fruit! I totally agree that eating fruit is nothing like eating bag fulls of candy. I’m proud of you for chucking out all the excess toxic sugar and for being reasonable, that your kids have to be able to taste it but no go overboard. I’m making these! If they’re anything like the black bean ones they will be a hit! We need to go for a hike!

      Thanks.:) I thought there would be a fight over candies but shockingly NOT. This fudge is similar to the brownies, true. Totally different taste but same idea. Let me know!!! Yes, we should hike. I will text you!!!

    Just made this and now am trying the fudge. Wow! I can see why you can eat all of it and NOT feel guilty. I am going to keep this on hand and when I get a sweet tooth I’ll eat it. Also I am going to give this fudge to my family and in-laws for Christmas with a nice container that you can freeze and of course reuse. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

      Yes, I was thinking this fudge would be great for Christmas but because it melts it is a little problematic for long parties or cookie exchange. I mean it is doable but people could forget about it while sipping % drinks lol. I just finished my lunch and sitting here wishing this fudge was in my freezer. I have 2 bananas left, I think I have to make it today because weekend is ahead of us and I will crave chocolate for sure. I also saw some weight drop after not eating any added sugar so I just want to stay good.:)

    That fudge looks amazing! & I like that you made it with bananas and not dates, as my boyfriend is allergic to dates, poor thing. I can’t wait to try and make this 🙂

      Thank you, Tasha. Believe it or not I have heard from many readers who are allergic to bananas! I can’t even imagine…

    I’m not a big fan of bananas & chocolate personally, I know I’m a weirdo LOL! I like them but not together. What quantity of honey would you use in place of the bananas? Or even dates?

      Hi Randa. LOL that is weird, I will be honest. Oh my, see bananas add volume and texture. I really can’t tell you how much honey to use because to replace bananas 1:1 you would use about 1 cup honey. Wow, that is a lot and I don’t think it will work. Dates wouldn’t make nice smooth consistency. I would not alter this recipe in any way. However, if you are craving fudge try this recipe with dates.

    just made these this afternoon! I have a big ol sweet tooth and I think these will do the trick! Wondering if they could be stored in the fridge for a little softer texture of if they need to stay in the freezer? Thank you!

      Hi Kylee. Probably they are better off in a freezer because of high banana content. In a fridge bars will become mushy. They don’t take long to defrost however.:)

      Hey Kylee, I actually put it in the fridge after I put it in the freezer for about two hours as I can’t stand eating it frozen (like chewing on an ice cream 😖) and it came out a mousse like consistency! Which was awesome as I’ve been looking for a vegan mousse recipe and thought I needed coconut cream but apparently not. Next time I will use less bananas, add some salt and use a bit more cacao as the banana was way too overpowering. But there you go, in the fridge = banana mousse 😊

    I live in WA too <3 But I really wanted to comment to say I very much appreciate how you are making sweets without added sugar. I get tired of finding recipes for sweets labeled "no sugar" with a liberal dose of coconut sugar, maple syrup, honey, agave, later clarifying "no *refined* sugar" or "*refined*-sugar-free". I've been looking for recipes like the few of yours I've read so far and I love that you actually AREN'T adding sugar. Thank you so much!

      Hi Heather. You are welcome. I know what you mean. “No sugar” is a marketing trick that works well to make people click on a recipe. I fell a victim of this trend myself a few times by claiming “sugar free” some of my recipes which honestly made me feel cheating and dishonest. So, you might see some of those on my blog. Other than that I try to make truly free sugar free recipes because sugar is sugar. Enjoy!
