I don’t know about you, but there is something so incredibly addicting about eating homemade Paleo fudge.

Maybe it’s how bite-sized the pieces are so it’s just insanely easy to pop one in after the other. Maybe it’s how rich the chocolate it so you’re actually getting that nice mood boost from the cacao.

Maybe it’s just because fudge is literally the best treat and should be around the house at all times!

What are the main ingredients in homemade Paleo vegan fudge?

Like my Paleo vegan almond butter cups, this Paleo vegan fudge is similar in that it’s made with very simple ingredients.

For this healthy fudge recipe, you’ll need:

  • 100% chocolate or Paleo vegan friendly chocolate (like Enjoy Life)
  • Coconut oil
  • Almond butter
  • Maple syrup

That’s it! The only note I have is use smooth almond butter here, if you don’t want a crunch vegan fudge 🙂

How to make Vegan and Paleo Chocolate Fudge

Making vegan and Paleo fudge is actually a heck of a lot simpler than making traditional homemade fudge.

I don’t know why, but back in the day when I would make regular fudge, I would always mess it up!

My experience with this homemade Paleo vegan fudge is quite the opposite however 🙂 It’s simple to combine, and the only hard part is waiting for it to chill in the fridge!

So to start, make sure that your coconut oil is melted and hot. We’re basically going to start by making a chocolate ganache (but you’ll see that in a second!). Then:

  1. Add the chocolate chips to the melted coconut oil in one large bowl, and mix the chocolate chips until they’re completely melted.
  2. Add in the maple syrup and almond butter, and continue to mix your fudge until all of the ingredients are well combined.
  3. Pour the fudge into a parchment lined 8×8 baking pan, and place the pan into the freezer to chill for 1-2 hours.

How incredibly simple is that?!

I highly recommend topping your vegan Paleo fudge with a little sprinkle of flaked sea salt 😉 Makes everything 10x fancier, I swear!

How to make this Keto Fudge

If you’re looking for an even lower sugar treat, you can easily turn this homemade fudge recipe into an easy and delicious Keto fudge with a few options!

  1. Swap out the maple syrup for allulose at an equal ratio.
  2. Swap out the maple syrup for about 1/4 cup stevia.
  3. Omit the maple syrup all together!

I will admit that the last option is on the richer, more bitter side, but it isn’t so bad because it’s cut with the sweetness from the almonds.

If you’re going the Keto fudge route or not, you’re going to love this recipe!
