These incredible Fudge Babies are the perfect raw, vegan, paleo dessert. With just 5 ingredients, they’re super easy to make. All you need to make Fudge Babies is walnuts, cacao powder, dates, vanilla, and salt. I love making this healthy no-bake dessert during the summer. It’s perfect for those hot days when we eat loads of raw food recipes and keep our oven turned off.
Although Fudge Babies are small they’re packed with wildly fudgey deliciousness, and are so good your junk food loving friends won’t ever guess they’re made with wholesome, healthy ingredients.
- Place dates, walnuts, cacao powder, vanilla, and salt in a food processor
- Pulse on high speed until smooth
- Roll mixture into balls
This paleo vegan dessert recipe is based on one by Chocolate Covered Katie. I made some minor changes to the recipe to make it more compatible with the way I eat. First, I used less than one-half the amount of dates she uses in her recipe because I am focused on reducing the amount of sugar in my diet, whether natural or processed. I also increased the amount of salt because I find more salt brings out the flavor of sweetness in many recipes.
After I read about Katie’s famous Fudge Babies I knew I’d need to make my own. And I knew they were a success because when my husband walked in the door he ate one. Then another. And another. And so on. You get the idea. I had to cut him off from the Fudge Babies. I hope you all love this healthy dessert as much as we do!
