If I wasn’t naturally tanned, you’d be seeing a hue of orange on me right now.

Oompah Lumpa, represent.

Yes, friends.

Pumpkin season has officially started here, and I’m just a little bit excited. 

Don’t get me wrong- Blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, blackberries and Halle Berry’s are all nice and everything. However, as the heat starts to decrease and the jackets start to come out of hibernation, so do those glorious cans of beta carotene.

To get into all things Fall and cozy, I’ll be teaming up with my cutlery better half, Amanda, and both of us sharing a week of pumpkin recipes together! Between the two of us, you’ll have a solid variety of pumpkin recipes to suit ALL taste buds out there. At the end of next week, we’ll be highlighting it all AND sharing our favorite pumpkin recipes from previous seasons so you’ll make pumpkin a year-round affair. 

Seriously.

We’re not just focusing on pumpkin- There will be some other fun weeks on the agenda, so let’s get Fall-ing cooking.

For my first pumpkin offering, I needed it to be edible apology.

What is’ edible apology’?

Well….today’s recipe is.

This time last year, I shared a 3 Ingredient pumpkin fudge recipe…although fudge it most definitely was NOT. The key ingredients to a smooth and creamy fudge are a fat source (typically butter), a sugar (typically…sugar) and usually some form of thickened goodness (usually condensed milk). the original recipe contained none of that, bar some granulated sweetener of choice. While the taste and texture was fudge-like, the overall characteristics were simply not there.

I owed it to you. I owed you a TRUE pumpkin fudge with one big caveat- This pumpkin fudge still needed to be healthy, without sacrificing on taste. It needed to be smooth, creamy and simple too. 

I owed you a TRUE pumpkin fudge with one big caveat- This pumpkin fudge still needed to be healthy, without sacrificing on taste. It needed to be smooth, creamy and simple too. I adapted my 3 Ingredient Maple Almond Fudge recipe, gave it a dose of beta carotene and voila- You guys get today’s REAL fudge.

This healthy 4 Ingredient pumpkin fudge is a quick, easy, no-cook recipe, which literally takes minutes to whip up! It’s smooth, creamy and if you let it thaw slightly, melts in your mouth! Traditional fudge usually contains condensed milk, sugar, butter and even heavy cream; ingredients today’s offering contains NONE of! Instead of those typical ingredients, my version uses drippy cashew butter and pure maple syrup as the main characters. Not only that, it really only needs just four ingredients combined! Because of the ingredients used, it is naturally gluten free, vegan, paleo, refined sugar free and dairy free- Hopefully, no one misses out!

HACK! No pumpkin puree is created equal. I repeat- NO PUMPKIN PUREE IS CREATED EQUAL. In fact, when I was talking to Amanda, she had purchased one brand which had the consistency of….you can ask her. 

Anyway.

For this particular fudge (and all my pumpkin recipes, rather), I’d either use this canned pumpkin puree or homemade. The latter is easy to control, and you can puree it to the perfect consistency.

Bye bye, Halle Berry.

  1. Wow pumpkin in August?! You are early this year! The PSL isn’t dropping for a few more days! I’m not hating though, I made pumpkin spice waffles for breakfast once this week 🙂

  2. Baby barf, for anyone wondering. The pumpkin puree I bought; not this fudge (which looks perfectly orange in ALL the pictures, so I don’t know what you were talking about 😛 ). And I haven’t cracked into any -cans- yet, but I’m rocking those tetra packs 😆

  3. Pumpkin recipes in August (and even in September)? No way, Arman! It’s still the right time for melons and some stone fruit. On the other hand, this pumpkin fudge looks so fantastic and luscious. I would have never thought of using cashew butter as the base, but I clearly see this works. So I will (eventually) forgive you for having posted this recipe in August. Well, I will forgive you sooner if you ship me a container of this delicious fudge:)

  4. I am so PUMP(K)IN’ for PUMPKIN. Okay, enough with the bad puns, Cass 😉

    But seriously, I am in NEED of kabocha nowadays! Sweet potatoes are great, but it’s not quite the same as a creamy, delicious and versatile Japanese pumpkin!

  5. The pumpkin has officially arrived! Amanda has been hinting at pumpkin for a while now, so I was convinced she would be the first one to post a pumpkin recipe, but you jumped in ahead with this pumpkin fudge (which, by the way, looks delicious! I haven’t even bought any pumpkin as I’m still getting sunlight beaming through the windows every day?. As soon as I do buy a can of the stuff, I will be making this recipe?…

  6. Wait…jackets out of hibernation? Say it isn’t so! I can’t go there mentally yet! But I can most definitely go to a happy place that involves laying on a bed of this pumpkin fudge. I’m imagining something akin to Willy Wonka’s factory…just with this pumpkin fudge everywhere. We need to invent that place soon, mate. Mmmkay? 🙂

  7. Pumpkin! Pumpkin! Pumpkin! Count me in as one of those obsessives and someone very excited about the impending season. 😀

  8. Interesting concoction! I can’t have cashews so I used peanut butter. It is much more peanutty than pumpkiny and darker in color, but it is still pretty tasty. Thanks for this!

    1. I did this same thing by using peanut butter instead and although it was more like peanut butter fudge instead of pumpkin, it was REALLY good!!! 🙂

  9. I laughed when I read “HEALTHY 4 ingredient pumpkin fudge” and wondered how fudge could be healthy. LOL. However, I just made this from fresh pumpkin I had and it is AWESOME!
