I had always heard of it, and yet never really personally experienced it. Writing is my love! My outlet, my passion. And when I can’t sit down and write, I kind of don’t know what to do with myself.
So that’s been my story these past six weeks or so. . . writer’s block. The passion and desire to write flew out the window. . . and I haven’t known what to do about it.
But thankfully, tonight, I sit with a post in mind, albeit an easy one: this coco-sunbutter freezer fudge. I was experimenting with sweet food in the kitchen this morning (another passion!) and came up with this yummy no-bake freezer fudge. Here are the perks. . .
- refined sugar-free
- kind of addictive
It’s salty and a little sweet, a combination I happen to love. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have. And hopefully the writer’s block is on its way out. 🙂
Coco-Sunbutter Freezer Fudge (Paleo, GAPS, SCD)
By: Danielle @ lovelovething.com
- 1/2 cup unsalted sunflower seeds (preferably soaked and dried, for optimal nutrition)
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1/4 cup coconut butter (learn how to easily make your own coconut butter)
- 6 large Medjool dates, pits removed
- food processor (where to find) or possibly high speed blender like this one
- silicone spatula
- baking cups (I love and prefer these silicone ones)
- a small scoop like this one is very helpful
- small spoon
- This is as simple as it could be: combine all ingredients in your food processor and process for several minutes, until blended well. Stop every minute or so and scrape the sides with the spatula.
- Scoop a tablespoon or so of the mixture into each baking cup, and level with a spoon. Freeze for 1/2 hour. Enjoy!
I doubled the recipe, and it was easier to blend.
I know many people don’t regularly keep Medjool dates on hand; you could try subbing 1/3 cup honey. Let me know how it goes if you do!
I tried putting some of the mixture into a silicone candy mold, and it worked okay, but honestly, the baking cups worked the best.
If you’re short on baking cups, just spread the whole mixture into a small flat dish, and cut into bite-sized pieces after freezing.
Peace, love, and freezer fudge,
