Rich, creamy, melt in your mouth fudge which uses just three healthy ingredients- None of which are butter, oil, flour or sugar! This quick and easy recipe uses one bowl, takes less than ten minutes and requires no baking or cooking! It’s also naturally gluten free, vegan, paleo and refined sugar free!
PSSSSSSST. Did you guys check out my latest recipe shared Friday? It’s officially November so these no bake bites NEED to happen.
To everyone who told me the maple/almond combination was a winner and I scoffed them off- I am sorry and I have fudge to make up for it.
However, hear a brother out.
I’ve tried my fair share of flavored nut butter and 9 times out of 10, I’ve been disappointed. Call me a basic bro (lol) or just non-fancy but I like my salted, crunchy peanut butter and basic salted nut butter. Not to mention that these flavored peanut butter or insert nut butter of choice costs twice or three times as much as their unflavored counterpart- You can understand the lack of appeal there.
Four weeks ago, I was at the local health food store and gave the “b*tch please” sign to the nut butter aisle because I had my jif’s waiting for me at home to faceplant. It was as though the nut butters were spiting me- At the front counter, were single serve sachets of flavored nut butters, one of which was an almond butter flavored with maple. I mentally rolled my eyes (I couldn’t physically do it in front of the store owner) and picked up one randomly and added it to my grocery pile- As a sample pack and 1/8th of the cost of a standard jar- It couldn’t be helped.
I got home, ripped open the package and spread the maple flavored almond butter over some toast. To be completely honest, I wasn’t obsessed with the texture- However, the flavor combination of the almond butter paired with maple syrup was AMAZING. I’d had peanut butter with maple syrup (on pancakes, made into bars, no bake bites etc)before but never this combination. While peanut butter was good, the almond butter took it up and notch and I was besotted (ignore my circa English class 2006 wording right there).
I wanted to try the combination in my go to three ingredient fudge recipe, subbing the cashew butter for almond and friends- I am officially the biggest goose. I should have gone with this from the start- Almond meal and almond butter > Almond meal and cashew butter. Enter- Healthy No Bake Three Ingredient Maple Almond Fudge.
This healthy three ingredient maple almond fudge is a replica of my original three ingredient paleo fudge, but using almond butter to amp up the flavor. This soft, rich and melt in your mouth fudge is your quick and easy fix for something sweet or a healthy snack/dessert to have on hand- It also requires no need to turn on the oven- It’s no bake! It’s also tailored to fit most dietary lifestyles- It’s naturally paleo, vegan, gluten free and refined sugar free!
HACK! While it IS technically three ingredients, do me a favor- Amp up the flavor by adding a dash of vanilla extract- Trust me on this one.
Make this delicious (And healthy!) three ingredient no bake maple almond fudge and for those I scoffed at-You’re welcome to tell me to Fudge off.

How ‘basic’ are you when it comes to nut butters?
What is your favorite sweet/savory combination?

I’m so basic when it comes to nut butter. I eat the good old Skippy PB. I’m not picky with brand, I prefer it to be crunchy. I love ALL sweet/savory things. My favorite would have to be hummus and chutney (it’s a fruit spread). It sounds gross, but it’s one of those #strangebutgood things I made accidentally. Never looking back 🙂
YES to crunchy- It’s the best, especially with salt!
My favorite nut butter is Skippy’s Natural. I just snack on it with a spoon. 🙂 This fudge looks awesome!
You and me both, Joanne!
I have everything except the almond butter to make this yummy maple almond fudge. I will definitely have to get some almond butter now. 🙂 I have yummed and stumbled your recipe. 🙂
Thanks so much!
I’m definitely a basic bro when it comes to nut butters! But this version sounds perfect! I love maple anything…and maple + walnut has been a long-time favorite. I’ll have to give the maple + pecan combo a chance now soon!
Dude, TJ’s crunchy peanut butter is beyond amazing.
Dear Arman, what a delicious combination of flavors…so perfect for fall. These look wonderful…I can never get enough of your healthy snacks and treats! Have a wonderful day my friend, Catherine
🙂 Thanks so much, Catherine!
I am a peanut butter girl all the way. I love dipping apples into it and sometimes I will add in semi sweet chocolate chips to the mix. This fudge sounds awesome!
When I first saw semi sweet chips at the supermarket I was so intrigued…They are better than milk and dark!
I’m super high maintenance when it comes to my [almond] butters, but in my defense, it’s mostly because all the basic ones “may contain traces of peanuts,” which doesn’t sit well with my allergy-stricken heart.
Argh damn, I can see how that’s limiting- Justins 😉
How about sunflower or cashew butter??
Wait, was this three ingredients paleo fudge the one that tasted like marzipan? Because this was a really really good one. I can totally see me loving this fudge, too. I eat a lot of no bake stuff for breakfast lately.
So far I make my own nut butter so I am pretty basic. But I guess I am going to try a few new ones in the next few weeks 😉
YES!!!! This one has a more subtle flavor!
I TRUST YA, I TRUST YA.
I’m with ya, and can NOT justify paying $8+ for a jar of almond butter. I’ll take a Skippy of JIF naturals, please.
Jif > Skippys
(Or TJ’s crunchy!)
I’ve seen snickerdoodle almond butters and pumpkin peanut butters XD they look great, but I’ve never tried them before! I may seem basic, but I wouldn’t mind trying them! I’ve never been a fan of fudge but this looks great!
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this segment, and will now be following your blog faithfully. I also can not wait to parade this recipe out for family and friends in the Autumn!
🙂 Thanks so much, Alli- That means so much!
I’m going to try these today. I love the thought of being able to eat some healthy fudge. Do you have any nutrition information for this fudge? I’m sure I’ll want to eat more than one piece and I’d love to know how many calories these are. Thanks!
Hi Bee! for sure! If you add the ingredients into a calorie calculator, divide it by the number of pieces you make 🙂 Enjoy!
This looks yummy AND easy! Yay for me. Thank you.
I’ll experiment with sunflower butter since almond butter doesn’t like me. I like cashew butter, too, but think the sunflower butter offers more flavor oomph.
