  • Food Processor


  • 2 cups pitted, tightly packed dates*
  • ½ cup walnut butter
  • cup cocao powder
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts


  • Preheat oven to 350°F and line a small loaf pan with parchment paper.
  • Add moist, sticky dates to the food processor and process until a ball forms. Break the ball apart and spread it evenly around the bowl of the food processor.
  • Add walnut butter, cocoa powder, and melted coconut oil and pulse until incorporated. The mixture will be very sticky and thick.
  • Add chopped walnuts and pulse to incorporate.
  • Dump fudge into prepared loaf pan. Press more chopped walnuts into the top of the fudge if dessired.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes until slightly crunchy around the edges. Allow to cool in the loaf pan. The longer it sits the firmer it will become. Cut into 8-10 pieces and serve with walnut caramel sauce, vegan ice cream, or whipped coconut cream.
