This healthy no bake freezer fudge needs just three ingredients and takes less than two minutes to whip up! Smooth, creamy and sinfully nutritious, this healthy fudge is naturally gluten free, vegan, paleo, dairy free and refined sugar free!
If you had a look at my old school timer, you’d see a cashew butter and maple syrup hybrid covering it.
That’s what happens when you time yourself making it.
…Just don’t tell my mum.
When I first told you guys how I’d be sharing easy, no-bake recipes made in muffin tin, I suspected 4-5 recipes. After trying out a variety of snacks and desserts, I think I’ve sparked a new obsession….with the muffin tin.While I love using the muffin tin for its intended purpose, I’m now officially making it a ‘thing’ to use for non-muffin recipes….especially ones which require no baking whatsoever.
Why get blasted on those recipes? Well, they look like fudge and have a similar texture but honestly? I kind of get it. It was more like a hybrid of a no-bake bite and no-bake bar.
Luckily today, I have that rectified for you!
So for such an easy, simple 3 Ingredient NO BAKE recipe, it took quite a little bit of trials. I really wanted to find the BEST texture and I think I’ve found it which ironically, took the least amount of time! This recipe is loosely adapted from this recipe which originally calls for peanut butter. I had just restocked on both cashew and almond butter last week, so wanted to try it out using those. I also wanted to see if I could sub out the honey for another sticky sweetener, as I find honey to be a little prominent in recipes with minimal ingredients.
So this fudge has been tested several times, purely to achieve the perfect texture.
After making it….
Eating it from the bowl as is- Don’t. The coconut oil is VERY evident here….but delicious.
After 30 minutes at room temperature- Better, but the texture is still non-fudge like….but delicious.
After 30 minutes refrigeration- Soft, smooth, creamy and delicious.
After overnight refrigeration- Firm, soft, smooth, creamy and delicious.
After 30 minutes in the freezer- VERY firm, soft, smooth and creamy, after thawing for 2 minutes…but delicious.
After 2 minutes in the freezer- OH MY GEE IT IS SO EPIC, I THREW A BLOCK OF FIRM TOFU AT NIKI.
Okay, maybe not THAT excited, purely because I wouldn’t waste tofu like that.
Anyway, what are we waiting for? Get those timers out and let’s get (no) baking!
This healthy 3 Ingredient no bake freezer fudge has the best texture and made of wholesome ingredients, it’s literally ready in two minutes! Unlike traditional homemade or store-bought fudge, this contains no butter, condensed milk, sugar or dairy, but you’d never tell- It’s incredibly creamy and smooth! There are two easy methods to make it- Either in the microwave (30 seconds!) or stovetop (1-2 minutes!) and then pour into muffin cups (or patty pans!) and freezing and BAM- Ready! Because of the ingredients used, this delicious fudge is naturally paleo, vegan, gluten free, dairy free and refined sugar free!
HACK! I used pure maple syrup as my sticky sweetener, but as mentioned earlier, I can confirm it works with both brown rice syrup (not as sweet) and also pure Manuka honey (honey flavor is very prominent). You can also switch around the nut butter- I used both cashew butter and almond butter, but it totally works with peanut butter too!
Make this healthy 3 Ingredient 2 Minute freezer fudge and I promise this is fudge “fudge”.
Not ‘fudge’ fudge.
- 2 cups smooth/drippy cashew butter
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup (can sub for brown rice syrup or pure Manuka honey)*
- Sea salt, to top (optional)
- Line a 12 count muffin tin with muffin liners and set aside.
- In a microwave safe bowl or stovetop, melt your nut butter with coconut oil. Stir through your pure maple syrup and mix until fully incorporated.
- Divide mixture evenly amongst the lined muffin cups and place in the freezer for 2 minutes to firm up slightly and enjoy!
- * If you use brown rice syrup, it will be less sweet. If you use honey, it will be very prominent.
- Fudge is best kept in fridge. If kept in the freezer, you'll need to thaw slightly before consuming.
- Fudge can easily be made into mini muffin tins for smaller portions.
