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-

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?

Do you tend to follow your intuition or stick to things which have been tried and tested? Sorry for the philosophical question today. Call me Aristotle. (Don’t)

    2. Well you clearly rock it in the no-bake department so I think it’s a good thing you chose not to follow others advice. How you even think to come up with stuff like this is beyond me. You’re so creative! Now I just need a piece of this in my face!!

    3. I bake in the middle of summer and make freezing cold smoothies in the middle of winter… and somehow it works. Actually, some of my best posts/recipes ended up being the ones that I questioned the most. Go figure.

    4. Clearly you are a no-bake genius. Plus with three ingredients, how could i not try these?! They look so good!!

    5. Fudge with ALMOND MEAL?! That is a genius idea!!!! I am absolutely in love with all of the other almond meal recipes you listed–especially the crepes, bread and pizza 😀

    6. Shut the front door! Yet another delicious no bake treat! You, my friend, are the master. And these look delicious.

    7. yummmmm. I don’t have almond flour, but I’ve been told I need to branch out. I’m obsessed with Trader Joe’s cashew butter, so I have a feeling I would love these. I tried the Jif cashew butter one time and it just didn’t compare!

    8. Oh God! Everything looks so delicious. The fudge sounds perfect. I like simple things. I will have to make a special Pinterest board called “Arman’s recipes I need to make when I am back from vacation”
      On being philosophical: I rely on intuition. Always. Because I could live with a fail if I failed my way but not if I had acted against my feelings! Does that make sense?

    9. Omg this recipe is way TOO simple and delicious and healthy. I’m probably going to make some today to celebrate the weekend no joke!

    10. I love the missing bite out of your fudge. It’s perfection.

      Also perfection is that Caprese Pizza. It looks heavenly.
