Coconut Oil Fudge

Coconut Oil Fudge Recipe

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, cinnamon or a 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 coconut oil chocolate fudge saves the day. To the freezer I go, ha!

Does It Have Banana Taste?

Yes, this coconut oil fudge recipe does have a 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.

How to Make Coconut Oil Fudge

  1. Melt coconut oil on a stovetop or in a microwave. 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.:)Coconut Oil Fudge Recipe made with only 3 simple ingredients. Easy to make, this coconut oil chocolate fudge is naturally sweetened but tastes like the most indulgent treat.
  2. In a food processor or high speed blender, add all ingredients and process until very smooth, pausing and scraping the walls once or twice. Consistency should be runny and not mousse like.coconut oil chocolate fudge
  3. Pour into lined with parchment paper 8” x 8” square dish and freeze for 2 – 3 hours. Remove from the freezer, let thaw about 5 minutes and cut into 16 squares. Coconut Oil Fudge Recipe

  1. Hi, can I melt the coconut oil at room temperature, say overnight? I don’t want to heat it ( feel lazy this manipulation)

    1. Hi! Coconut oil will become less solid in room temperature, but it depends on how hot the room is. It will not be fully liquid with this method. It only takes 20-30 seconds in the microwave.

  2. Hello dear Olena,
    I made this super easy and tasty coconut oil fudge! I modified recipe a little bit with the amount of ingrediants, so I used 1 banana, 1 tbs of coconut oil and 1 tbs of cacao powder). I put it into freezer for about 3 hours. I let them thaw outside the freezer for about 5 – 10 minutes and they melted down in a few minutes. Do you have any advice how can I achieve that they are well tight and not melted down in a few minutes beeing outside the freezer?
    Best regards

  3. I really like your recipes! Thanks for this fudge! I am going shopping for the items!
    Will post results!

  4. So easy to make and surprisingly very tasty! I must say I was a little skeptical and feared the chocoloate fudge taste would be overpowered by the banana sweetener but was happily wrong by 100%. Next time I may add swirls of pure peanut butter before throwing it in the freezer. Thank you for a great recipe!

  5. Is the results before freeze suppose to look like mousse? I struggled to get the top flat and smooth due to the mousse consistency?

    1. It should look like the consistency in my food processor picture. Smooth and runny. Did you process it long enough or is your food processor powerful? It should settle into bars with pretty flat top because consistency is pretty runny.

  6. These are really good and healthy too. I admit I have a problem with candy. I am trying to cut back though. But I cannot drink coffee without creamer though it goes against me to just have it with milk and honey. I saw a site where they made their own with raw almonds cream and whole milk but it only made a pint and it said it only lasted for 5-10 days. I wondered how much of that stuff do you have to put in the coffee to keep it from spoiling.Not good for someone trying to lose weight.

    1. I can’t drink coffee without milk too. Anything fancy that requires extra preparation I don’t do. I would just do a bit of creamer and don’t sweat it, if I were you. That is not what will be in a pathway of your weight loss, unless you do a lot of creamer.:)

  7. 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!

    1. 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!

  8. 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!

    1. 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.:)

    2. 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 ?

  9. 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?

    1. 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.

  10. 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!

    1. 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.:)

  11. 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!

    1. 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!!!
