Paleo Sunflower Butter Walnut Fudge

I found Wild Friends at Costco!!! Best day evaaaaah! Yes, Wild Friends' Honey Sunflower Butter is available in bulk! I've never had sunflower butter before, but knew it would be delicious because it's Wild Friends, so I bought 2 jars. Now, I had to find something to make with it.

I found sunflower butter was a big ingredient in the paleo world because peanuts (and peanut butter) are forbidden! Can you imagine a life without peanut butter?!? No way.... But this fudge is pretty good, so I'm down with some of the paleo rules. This recipe is adapted from Paleo Newbie. I changed up the amount of honey and oil from the original because I found it to be a bit too sweet for my taste. Also note, you can use almond butter (or peanut butter if you're not paleo) to substitute if you are not a fan of sunflower butter.

Bottom Layer:

  • 1/3 cup coconut oil (melted)
  • 1/4 cup cacao or cocoa powder

1. Melt coconut oil in the microwave.
2. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
3. Pour into a square pan or bread pan lined with parchment paper.
4. Put in the freezer for 20 minutes.

Top Layer:

3. Pour on top of the bottom layer and put in the freezer for at least an hour.
4. Take out of pan and cut into squares.

So simple and so delicious. These fudge squares are still very sweet with the reduction in honey and oil, so you really just need one to satisfy your sweet tooth - but you can of course, eat as many as you want without feeling guilty! Store them in the freezer because they will melt super fast if left out.

Enjoy!
