So this is what you need:
1 cup coconut oil
1 cup organic rice malt syrup (or you could use honey or maple syrup)
6 tablespoons raw, organic cacao powder
2 heaped tablespoons Nutra Organics Super Greens Plus Reds
2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste
1/2 cup organic almond butter or any nut butter of choice
1 1/2 cups organic raw walnuts chopped roughly
So, this is how you do it:
Add all ingredients except the walnuts to a large bowl and mix well for a minute till well combined.
You can use a thermomix or food processor, but only mix at a medium speed for a few seconds (do not overmix as it will separate).
Add the walnuts to the bowl and fold through.
Line a slice tray with baking paper and pour the mixture into the tray.
Pop the mixture in the freezer to set for approx 40 minutes to an hour.
The fudge is best if kept in the fridge or freezer as it will melt quickly (that is if it lasts long enough)
Slice into small squares and enjoy. The most delicious way to get your daily vitamins and minerals!
