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 Zoi, so glad you enjoyed it! It's a great way to use up almond pulp. I don't actually dehydrate my pulp at all in this recipe! Also, I didn't cut it until it was frozen, so that may have had something to do with it too. Hope this helps!

Awesome. Thank you. I started with the Superfoods Brownie and the S blade worked there. I recently ordered a Nutribullet (the economy Vitamix ha ha ha) and will give the icing a go once it arrives. I used up my kitchen gadget budget on an Excalibur dehydrator, so for now, other than the Nutribullet ... I'll be making due with the "budget appliances") Loving your site and your recipes. First time EVER I'm not hopeless in the kitchen. Maybe I never learned to cook because I do better with Raw. Thank you for making it possible!

Also, for this recipe you could use macadamia nuts or  pine nuts instead of cashews. You could also use pecans instead of cashews. Hope this helps!

Can you use other nut pulp and can you replace the cashew flour with another flour (oat, coconut, etc.)

Hi Stacie,

You can definitely use any nut pulp leftover from making nut milk. (It doesn't have to be ALMOND pulp.)

I wouldn't replace the cashew flour with another oat flour though :)

I hope this helps!

Really delicious and quick recipe, love it!! I only added 1tbs of honey as I think the dates have enough sugar/ bind, thank you so much for sharing!

Wow! I had low expectations for this recipe after trying a gluten-free brownie recipe. It wasn't chewy or tasty. THIS however, was a great way to use up almond pulp from my recent forray into making plant milk at home, AND is delicious and yes chewy and fudgy so much so I immediately went back for more.

My cheap small thrift store food processor could even handle breaking down the dates, which was surprising! To help it along next time though, could I soak the dried dates first or something? Or will that added water alter recipe proportions?

I'm so glad that you enjoyed this recipe, Donna, it's one of my favorite ways to use up almond pulp. And, as you mentioned, it is actually GOOD!!

I'm happy that your little thrift store food processor could handle it! Since your food processor could handle it, I suggest that you do not soak the dates, as it will add some additional water to the recipe, which will negatively affect the recipe's consistency. Sometimes adding the dates a few at a time (instead of all at once) can make them process more easily.

I hope these are helpful tips!

I make pecan and walnut milk only. Could I use pecan pulp for the almond pulp and walnut pulp for the walnuts? Would you suggest I dry the walnut pulp first? Thanks!

Yes, using different kinds of nut-pulp (ie. pecan, walnut etc) would be fine! You don't need to dehydrate the pulp or anything, just make sure to squeeze it very dry using your nut milk bag to eliminate excess moisture.

So glad to finally have recipes to use pulp for. Always told my patients after making "milk" to put their pulp in ice cube trays, freeze and put portions in zip-lock bags for the thawing and portion convenience. Now I can add your recipes to the regime! YEAH!!!

Hi Mumin,

You could increase the almond pulp about 3/4 of a cup, but I wouldn't do much more than that because it'll change the consistency of the recipe too much and it won't hold together.

Hope this helps!

would it be possible to use a high speed blender for this recipe, like a vitamix?

I was wondering if you could give me a good substitution for the coconut. I am allergic. :-(
