Avocado Mint Fudge is a healthy version of grasshopper bars made with raw avocado, banana, coconut oil, maple syrup, cacao nibs, and peppermint extract. These creamy bars are perfect for the holidays or as a guilt-free indulgent treat.

To satisfy my sweet tooth, I just love coconut oil fudge and healthy chocolate coconut balls.

Avocado Fudge

I decided to make my own avocado mint fudge after my friend Christi showed up on my doorstep with avocado grasshopper bars. Those bars were absolutely lip-smackingly good and inspiring!

I wanted to create a healthy fudge bar that was easy, quick and deliciously creamy. And here it is! This will be the healthiest fudge you’ve ever tried’ no condensed milk or tons of sugar!

This avocado fudge is perfectly sweet with the banana, maple syrup, coconut oil, peppermint extract, and cacao nibs. The raw avocado provides the perfect creaminess to this fudge.

You can enjoy bars all year long as a delectable healthy treat. But I also think they are great for the holidays! Serve them up alongside other healthy no-bake treats like cacao nibs brownie bites, coconut protein balls, no-bake black bean brownies, and protein cookies!

In fact, I love to make healthier versions of my favorite baked treats like almond flour brownies, zucchini brownies, black bean brownies, and healthy chocolate cake – among many!!

Ingredients for Avocado Mint Fudge Bars

  • Avocados: I swear by Costco’s Haas avocados. They are the best ever! And yes, these fudge bars may have a slight avocado taste. But I love avocado so much!
  • Bananas: Just 1 small (ugly) banana. Trust me when I say that you won’t even taste the banana.
  • Cacao nibs: You can substitute chocolate chips or omit entirely. Cacao nibs are very bitter pieces of cacao beans, if consumed on their own. But if you add them to something sweet, you get the taste and crunch of chocolate chips. Well, almost. Plus they’re FULL of antioxidants!!
  • Maple syrup or honey: I use raw, unfiltered and local honey, but maple syrup is great too!
  • Coconut oil, peppermint extract and salt.
