choc walnut fudge

When I started this blog I had very little idea what it would be about. I didn’t over think it. All I knew was that I would share the recipes we enjoy. I hadn’t any ideas beyond that.

It seems I have started sharing more than just recipes.

It seems that somewhere along the line I decided it was a diary of sorts, my little space. Somewhere to clear all that runs through my chaotic mind.

For as long as I can remember I have experienced the world, from the life changing moments to the everyday, through a story. A constant story that plays in my mind.

I have not thought much of it as I have never known any different.

I have at times wondered if others do the same.

Before starting this space I hadn’t written for years. I was not one to share pieces of myself with my husband, my friends or my family.  I wrote a lot when I was growing up but you certainly wouldn’t say I was good at it. I don’t consider myself good at it now. But I have always loved it; actually I think I have always needed it.

The words I have written since Wholefood Simply began have come as a surprise to not only myself but to many of the people closest to me.

To this day I feel like Wholefood Simply is still evolving. I become lost for words whenever anyone asks exactly what it is about. But what I do know is that I am so thankful that you take the time to be here. That you check out my little space, whip up my recipes and read my little ramblings. But perhaps most of all, that you do not mind my mismatched and somewhat random way of doing things.


Choc Walnut Fudge

  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 2 rounded tablespoons honey*
  • pinch of salt
  • flesh of 1 ripe avocado
  • 10 medjool dates, seeds removed
  • 3 tablespoons cacao or cocoa
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon concentrated natural vanilla extract
  1. Heat a medium sized frypan over medium heat. Add the walnuts and salt to the frypan and toast, stirring frequently,  until fragrant, approximately 3 – 4 minutes. Turn off the heat and add one tablespoon of the honey. Mix until the walnuts are well coated. Set aside or do the below as your walnuts are toasting.
  2. Place the remaining honey, avocado, dates, cacao or cocoa, coconut oil and vanilla into your food processor and blend until smooth, well combined and looking delicious.
  3. Stir the walnuts into the chocolate mixture. Pour the mixture into a loaf tin lined with baking paper over hanging the sides. Place in the freezer to set.
  4. Store in and eat straight from the freezer.
  5. Enjoy.

*You can use rice malt syrup if you prefer

Thank you so much for your honesty! You bless so many people with your recipies and the commentary that goes along with them. Sometimes I don’t care what the recipe is, I just want to read about how you’re going. My daughter has just been put on the low FODMAP diet and we are travelling to the USA for a month in three weeks time. It’s all very daunting and I’m not sure how we’ll go???? But I thank you again for sharing your story xx

Thank you so much!!! It is lovely to hear that you wander over to my little space not only for the recipes, I really appreciate that! Yes, a low FODMAP diet in the US does sound hard. Will you be staying with family? I hope it turns out easier tan you expect. xx

Thank you always for your recipes! My kids just love them as much as I do. I wondered if anyone knows what I can substitute the avocado with? I have recently discovered I’m allergic to it and so many great recipes call for it.

Thank you. I am glad you and your family are enjoying the things I share. I would use banana to sub the avocado. I hope you enjoy it. x

Hi Bianca, I love this blog, I love the pictures and thank you for sharing such heartfelt experiences with us. You are an amazing person.
Does this fudge recipe use liquid coconut oil, or is it ok in solid form?

Thank yo so much Amanda, I really appreciate that. The coconut oil I used was not liquid, it was solid but soft. I hope that helps. x

Hello, my son is on a low FODMAP diet and cannot have honey. Would golden syrup or maple syrup work in this recipe? Thanks 🙂

Reply
Bianca Slade January 24, 2015 - 9:31 am

Yes either of those would be fine. x

not a fan of dates. what else do you recommend?

Reply
Bianca Slade February 13, 2015 - 7:36 am

I would recommend trying our date free recipes, if you would like to send me a PM via email or FB and I can send a list across to you.

I’d love a date free/low fructose recipe also Bianca! How best to get in touch? x

Reply
Claire February 12, 2015 - 2:45 pm

I’ve just made this and found that the dates didn’t break down enough. Is it worth soaking them overnight first to get them softer for the food processor?

Oh my goodness! This is the second recipe I’ve made now and total sucess with this one also! (the first was your banana bread!)
This is sooo good, I don’t know how long it will last once my kids and hubby discover it!
Followed the recipe to a T and it was easy and straight-forward!
Thanks so much Bianca, I appreciate your blog so much! 🙂

I just started a sugar and grain detox so I’ve been scouring the web for recipes that will give me a little sweetness fix without artificial stuff. I made this with my daughter today and let me just say that it is hands down one of the best things I’ve ever eaten in my life. I will NEVER look at fudge the same way again! You are a genius. I used the brown rice syrup instead of the honey, and I doubled the batch because I’m feeding a family of five and it’s just PERFECTION.

Do you melt the coconut oil or add it in solid form?

Reply
Bianca Slade September 2, 2015 - 12:48 pm

I don’t melt it. x

Can I remove the cocoa? Will it make much difference to the slice!

Reply
Bianca Slade May 15, 2016 - 3:38 pm

It will make a difference but you can do it. I would perhaps sub it with a nut butter…

This recipe was the third recipe I made over the long weekend and it was also a hit! I rolled the mixture into a ball and in desiccated coconut before putting them into the freezer. They tasted great! Next time I think I will crush my walnuts into smaller pieces and maybe add almonds to it as well!

One of my favourites from your website, and I make lots!! Since buying a thermomix, I’m finding it doesn’t process the dates very well, wondering if you have any ideas? Thinking it might be because it’s such a big bowl compared to my old tiny processor.. So maybe I need to double it.. But still tastes yum!! 🙂
Sometimes I leave out the walnuts or top with flaked coconut, it’s very versatile. Thanks for so many delicious recipes <3
