Saintly Smooth Fudge

"Fudgy, smooth chocolate and a kiss of sea salt is what this surprisingly healthy, gluten free candy is all about! I won't judge if you eat the mixture out of the food processor instead of pressing and chilling it... I did! I'm offering two variations, one is a vegan, nut free alternative made with SunButter, the other uses the incredible decadence of Nutella.

Ready In:
1 8x5


  • 1 ounce unsweetened chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 1 ounce semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons refined soft coconut oil
  • 1 34 cups cooked black beans, drained and rinsed well (I cooked my own)
  • 3 tablespoons clear agave nectar or 3 tablespoons light agave nectar
  • 3 (1 g) packets vanilla flavoured stevia
  • 2 (1 g) packets vanilla flavoured stevia (extra, for sunbutter version)
  • 12 cup Dutch-processed cocoa powder
  • 14 cup sunflower seed butter (SunButter ) or 1/4 cup nutella (for a non-vegan variation)
  • fine sea salt, to sprinkle


  • Combine the chocolates and coconut oil in a small bowl and melt gently in the microwave. Set aside.
  • In a food processor, puree the beans with the agave nectar and stevia until very smooth.
  • Add the chocolate mixture and cocoa and puree inches.
  • Add the SunButter or Nutella and process in until completely smooth.
  • Line an 8x5" loaf pan with clingwrap and press the fudge in evenly. Sprinkle with sea salt.
  • Chill 1 hour, uncovered, then press a layer of plastic ontop of the fudge surface and keep in the fridge.
  • This tastes better if you chill it overnight and let it stand at room temperature for 30 minutes before enjoying.

<p>Montessori teacher, nutritionist and pastry chef: baking is my passion, but teaching the value of good food to whole families is close to my heart too! I have a passion for re-instilling the love of good-quality, home-made and mostly healthy food into the hearts and kitchens of children and their families today. I believe that any ?homemade? food, even when labelled as naughty, is a more wholesome treat than pre-packaged, cookie-cutter junk.</p> 9408826"
