The following is a guest post from Katja, who blogs at The Savory Lotus. She has a melt-in-your-mouth recipe for Almond Butter Coconut Fudge Bars that are sure to please! Check out her blog for more great recipes and posts!
A while back, I posted the recipe for Toasted Coconut Almond Butter Fudge. They have become a family favorite around here. I made a simpler version the other day when my sweet tooth was acting up again. I left out the chocolate and decided not to use the candy molds. I basically poured the mixture into an 8×8 baking dish and let it freeze. DONE!! So easy. Introducing: Almond Butter Coconut Fudge Bars.
I’m mildly obsessed…
These melt-in-your-mouth treats are the perfect thing when you need a little sweet in your life. With only 5 simple ingredients, you can feel good about giving them to the whole family. If you’ve been following my other recipes, you know by now that I love salty and sweet together. And the coconut gives it just the right amount of chewiness. I make a double boiler using a glass bowl over a medium sized cooking pot. It works great. They do get soft at room temperature, so I keep them in the freezer. Enjoy!
Almond Butter Coconut Fudge Bars
- ½ cup coconut oil
- 1 cup almond butter, unsalted
- 3 TBS honey (where to buy)
- 1/2 tsp salt (where to buy)
- 1/2 cup shredded coconut, unsweetened (where to buy)
Line an 8×8 baking pan with parchment paper.
In a double boiler, melt coconut oil, honey, salt, and almond butter until nice and smooth.
Turn off heat and fold in shredded coconut.
Pour mixture into the lined baking dish.
Place into freezer to harden for at least 2 hours (I know, hard to wait but so worth it).
Remove from freezer, lift gently from pan by grasping parchment paper, and cut into desired sized pieces on a cutting board
Store in freezer in sealed container, separating layers with parchment paper

Really want to try this. Love recipes using coconut oil. When do you add the salt?
Lindsey G. says
I am updating that now – thanks for the catch!
This looks great! Do you think it would work with cashew butter also?
Lindsey G. says
Yes–I know it would!
Where’s the fudge?
