Recipe Directions

  • 1. Place cashews alone in your food processor and process until they become small and crumbly. You are making flour out of cashews!
  • 2. Add dates to the cashews and process again until the mixture sticks together and the dates are well processed.
  • 3. Add the remaining ingredients and process again until the mixture turns a lovely dark chocolatey brown. Stop processing before it gets too buttery. (There should still be air between the small bits so that you will be able to press them down into your pan.)
  • 4. Dump the mixture into a brownie dish or small cake pan and press down very firmly using your clean hands.
  • 5. Throw this raw almond pulp fudge recipe into the freezer for at least one hour. This fudge should always be kept in the freezer. Slice before eating and eat right out of the freezer. They won't turn rock-hard. They will be nice and chewy. Do not refrigerate or defrost.

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

This recipe is only for those of you who have leftover almond pulp from making almond milk in your blender. (If you do not have leftover almond pulp, then do not bother making this recipe! Make my regular raw brownie recipe instead.)

For an even more delightful fudgey dessert, ice the fudge with raw chocolate icing before freezing. (Not necessary though, still very good without the icing.)

Hi MJ, if you make almond milk (blend almonds and water) then you have to strain it - and you are left with almond pulp in the strainer. Basically, just tiny bits of almonds. If you don't have almond pulp you can just use almonds instead :)

Made these for tea with a new friends who is curious about my raw food thing. I added a touch of almond extract and made them nice and flat by putting a piece of wax paper on top on rubbing them with a coffee mug. Can't wait for her to try them!

Hmm so Im not sure if you have ever tried making these in the vitamix but I did and it didnt go so well, just a heads up for anyone planning to try it that way :) I ended up having to scoop it out and mix it by hand and they turned out to be SUPER dense, in the picture yours look so yummy and almost cake like, these were more like dense flat bars. Any suggestions if I don't own a food processor? I try to rely on my vitamix to do it all but it didn't work out in this case!

p.s. I just found your site and adore it my boyfriend had to drag me away from the computer and the kitchen today lol! Thanks for all the great recipes!

I made the same mistake you did! I read "food processor" - but since I got my Vitamix, everything gets translated into "put into Vitamix." Didn't work so well for this recipe. Ooops!

Hehe funny how the brain works, huh Christine! It's kind of like the, "where's the (nut) milk????" in the fridge when all the time it was right there on the top shelf. Sometimes our mind likes to see what it wants to see :)

Hi Naomi! You absolutely MUST get a food processor. It opens up so many doors for different raw food recipes. In short, blender is for SMOOTH, LIQUIDY STUFF (smoothies, sauces, icing etc.) and a food processor is for DRYER STUFF (like brownies, pate, pie crust,  etc.). You don't need a very good food processor. You should be able to get one for $60 or less at your local big box store. Just make sure to get one that is pretty large, like it holds at least 6 or 8 cups. Totally worth it. Hope this helps and glad to have you here!

I would love to make this recipe but unfortunately cannot have coconut. Could I simply make the recipe without coconut or should I substitute it with something else?

Hi Jerrod, I'd recommend using hempseed hearts instead of dried coconut in this recipe.  (But if you don't have access to hempseed hearts then simply substitute with the equivalent amount of cashews)
