Heart-Healthy Raw Coconut Fudge
6 1/4 cups walnuts
1 1/4 cups agave nectar
1 cup raw cacao powder
4 cups shredded coconut
In a food processor, finely grind the walnuts until they’re the consistency of peanut butter.
In a mixing bowl, thoroughly mix walnut-butter with agave, cacao powder, and coconut – you can mix by hand if you like!
Once the texture is perfectly even, firmly press the mixture into a shallow glass pan or plastic tray.
Freeze or refrigerate for about 1 hour before scoring and serving! (You can also wrap pieces in cellophane and ribbon for Valentine’s gifts.)
Note: If you can’t find raw cacao powder, gourmet Dutch processed cocoa powder works perfectly too.
