Three Ingredient No Bake Fudge which melts in your mouth and takes 5 minutes! Paleo, vegan and gluten free too!

Before we get into today’s post, thank you all SO much for your suggestions for creating a recipe using one of these– Believe it or not, I’ve gone the savoury route. Although not in the item you may perceive….Stay tuned. 



Another day.

Another three ingredient recipe.

Another no bake recipe.

Sue me. 

There was a time I would take what other ‘seasoned’ bloggers advice as gold and would comply as though it was their way or no way. They claimed multiple antics which were supposedly blogging ‘taboo’ and that bizarre recipes were lame. I’m glad to say I’ve stopped being so submissive and trusting myself and my ideas and my….lack of baking. 

Maybe when the colder months come, I’ll turn on my oven to bake something.

Maybe when the colder months come, I’ll turn on the oven to keep myself warm.

Maybe when the colder months come, I’ll be dancing at an ice hockey event with a watermelon on my head.

Regardless, I’ll be posting what I want- Cooked, fried, sautéed, transformed into a ball gown and (no) baked.

Anyway, I’m back today with some of my favourite bloggers with our monthly ingredient round up…and we have a new friend joining us! This month, our ingredient was Alexis’ homemade splenda. 


Just kidding, it was almond flour/meal! We each created a recipe featuring this as our ingredient and I made a 3 Ingredient Paleo and vegan friendly fudge but I’ll share that at the end. Let’s see what the others contributed-

Lindsay shares with us these small batch chocolate chip cookies. Small batch = All for me. Right? Right.

Friends, please welcome Sarah who has THE recipe to use up those zucchinis piling up in your kitchen- Gluten Free Zucchini Bread.

You should have heard what Alexis originally claimed her recipe to be. Luckily, you don’t need to because she actually made these Vegan Mocha Chip muffins! 


Kylie has us wanting to diss the pancakes in favour of these delicious almond flour crepes!

Now my contribution- Healthy Three Ingredient Fudge. This fudge could not be any easier and I was stoked with how well it turned out using almond flour. Long term readers know I am obsessed with coconut flour (one of my flours of choice!) but almond flour/meal- It’s not used TOO often here. However, after some trials with various sticky sweeteners and nut butters, we come to this (delicious) conclusion.

This Healthy Three ingredient fudge literally takes five minutes to whip up and is customisable depending on what nut butters or sticky sweeteners you have on hand. Not only that, it’s suited to most diet lifestyles out there- Paleo, vegan, gluten free and, depending on what ingredient combination you use, Whole 30 compliant!

For this recipe, I used pure maple syrup and cashew butter you can use what you have on hand. If you aren’t paleo, you can definitely use peanut butter and if you’re not strictly vegan, you can use honey/brown rice syrup- Just make sure you read the notes. 

Make this healthy three ingredient fudge and have a simple, delicious and melt in your mouth snack on hand all the time.

  • Line a deep baking dish with baking paper and set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, add the almond flour and set aside.
  • In a microwave safe bowl or stovetop, melt the nut butter with the sticky sweetener until combined. Pour the wet mixture into the almond flour and mix until fully combine- the batter should be very thick.
  • Transfer into the lined baking dish/tray and press firmly. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before slicing up,


* Depending on what flour, nut butter and what sticky sweetener you use, you may need more almond flour/sticky sweetener. Adjust accordingly- If batter is too thin, add almond flour 2 tablespoons at a time. If batter is crumbly, add the sticky sweetener one tablespoon at a time.
Fudge is best kept in the fridge but can be frozen.

Have you ever used almond flour/meal before?

  1. What a perfect and easy recipe! I’ve used the maple cashew butter combo and it’s delicious. I can tell this is a good one! Now onto the pizza crust, that looks awesome too. Seriously they all do 🙂

    1. Hi Cassi! I’ve never tried it with liquid stevia but if you do try it out, let me know how it goes 🙂

  2. Arman, I love all these recipes…those crepes are especially calling to me! I do not blame you for not turning the oven on, especially with this NY heat wave! Keep those no-bake treats coming my friend.

    These fudge bars sound wonderful. I recently discovered how easy it is to make your own nut butter. These are going on my list of things to try. Have a wonderful day and stay cool!!

  3. I told you not to tell anyone about my splendid splenda stash!!! Now everyone knows my secret. Just wait and see what I do to you when we’re neighbs.

  4. Armani – I would like to see you dancing at an ice hockey event with a watermelon on your head. Awesome paleo fudge!

  5. This fudge looks so easy. I may have to try this and share it with my mom. She loves fudge but this recipe looks just as good as traditional fudge! I try to follow my intuition when cooking, but I’ve found that following recipes can be better in some cases. I love experimenting though!

  6. I’ve got some almond flour hanging out in my cupboard, and now I know how to use it! All of these recipes make me want to eat. Thanks a lot, Arman. I’m trying to be good since we’ve been on vacation a bunch lately and you just keep posting things I want to eat. Jerk. And I mean jerk in the nicest of ways! 🙂

    1. Ohhh let’s be cryptic. Vacation + travel = Jerky. Jerky = travel snack.

      That’s what you meant, right 😉

  7. omg i literally want ALL OF THESE. scrolling through that series was just the worst and best moments of my life. now i have to get my egg conversions going so that i can go to almond-town on those recipes.. except for you, cause you’re always so good to me 😀

  8. I just picked up my first jar of cashew butter and I loooooove it! Knowing how creamy and dreamy it is, I’m imagining how tasty this fudge turned out. And when it comes to following the unwritten laws of the food blog industry, I say BREAK ‘EM! You bring these no-bake recipes! Law knows I’m not turning on my oven, so I’ll take all I can get!

  9. Holy fudge – I’m in love 🙂 You are a genius. Love every recipe you are creating. I swear you are half of my pinterest board 🙂

  10. Hey Arman, have you ever considered branding your genius recipes even more and creating your own bar/product and having it be sold in stores? I think there would be so many people who would love to purchase these awesome products (even though you try your hardest to make them as simple as possible to make, I mean yes, 3 ingredient-No bake, is probably the easiest possible recipe for anyone to create, however even I can say that I still would not mind buying them!). In fact the low ingredient count would probably appeal to those who want ‘whole-food’ bars.

    1. You’re such a gem, Niki- Ironically, one of my recipes will be available as a ‘tear pad’ from GNC and Vitamin World soon 🙂 I’m also ‘working’ on the e-cookbook but….keep me on track!
