Gluten Free Raw Fudge

After watching this video recipe on Raspberry Ganache Fudge Cake I have been wanting to try it. Unfortunately, I had no avocado for the frosting, nor raspberries for the filling. Darn! I tried a different spin on things and made a smaller portion of what I really would like to call “guilt-free” raw fudge. This raw fudge makes a great dessert, as well as a snack, and is also low-sodium, low-fat, vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free dessert. And healthy, too!

Gluten Free Raw Fudge


Yield: 16 - 17 pieces

Gluten Free Raw Fudge

It is really yummy, and definitely satisfies the sweet tooth, as well as any chocolate cravings. What a great healthy dessert or snack!


  • 1 cup pitted organic medjool dates (not compacted)
  • 1 cup raw walnuts
  • 1 teaspoon raw honey
  • 3 heaping Tablespoons unsweetened cacao powder
  • Extra walnuts for topping (optional)


  1. Add all of the above ingredients in a food processor and pulsate until the nut are still visible in small chunks and the ingredients have formed together in several small masses.
  2. On a small chopping board form the mixture into a square almost 1" high. I made one about 4" x 5" x 1".
  3. Refrigerate for about 15 minutes.
  4. Cut into squares and top with an extra walnut (or not). If you wish to make a nice presentation and some pieces are larger than others, just cut a piece off and form a new piece with the extras.
  5. Refrigerated any left-overs.


I am going to add an additional tablespoon of cacao next time. I am sure it will be able to maintain the correct consistency, but I love chocolate!

  1. Wow! This sounds really good. Kinda like a do it yourself “Lara Bar,” only bite sized. Really great idea, I’ll have to try it as soon as I remember to buy some dates. : )

    1. Hi Rachelle!

      Lara Bars are advertised as “pure and simple, just as nature intended”. We can these are “sweet and chocolaty, just as woman intended”! :-)
