Raw Black Bean Fudge
Prep time

Total time
Whipped up in less than 10 minutes, this Raw Black Bean Fudge has not only got a high nutritional profile, but it's the perfect healthy sweet treat when you need something a little bit decadent. Loaded with protein and fibre, black beans are a great vegetarian source to add into your diet, for sweet and savoury options. It's also a great healthy treat for the kids when they want something sweet after dinner instead of the marshmallows or chocolate biscuits. Best kept in the fridge or freezer.
Serves: 15-20 pieces
  • 400gm can black beans, drained and rinsed (you could also use red kidney beans)
  • 2 T maple syrup
  • 4 T cacao powder
  • ¼ c coconut oil, melted
  • 1 t vanilla essence
  • a pinch of sea salt
  • ¼ walnuts, roughly chopped (omit if nut free)
  • sprinkle of cacao nibs (optional)
  1. Line a small square or rectangle loaf tin with baking paper or a baking sheet. Place all the ingredients into a food processor (except the walnuts and cacao nibs) and blend until completely smooth. Scrape down the sides with a spatula a couple of times as you go.
  2. Remove centre blade from the food processor and stir in the walnuts (or transfer to another bowl if necessary).
  3. Spoon the mixture into the prepared loaf tin and sprinkle the cacao nibs on top if using. Place in the freezer for 1-2 hours to set. Remove from the freezer and transfer to a chopping board and but into bite sized pieces.
  4. Best kept in the fridge, or in the freezer for a fudgey frozen treat.

    Yum!!!! I love this fudge. First time I tried making it I did it in the food processor. Second time I made it in the Nutri Ninja and it was REALLY good. Creamy.

      That’s a great idea Carolyn, I hadn’t thought of doing it in the nutri bullet as in ours, it sometimes has a little bit of texture. I’ll have to give it a go. Thanks!

    I’m sorry but I don’t have that information.

    I really like this recipe! It’s an excellent way to combine cacao and proteins. I have also made it with red kidney beans and Lima beans : always good.

      Thanks Sarah, you’ve reminded me to make it again, I had completely forgotten about it so I’ve just whipped up a batch and it’s in the freezer as we speak! 🙂
