The Vegan Cookbook Challenge #3: Raw Coconut Fudge – March 2021

Hi all!

In 2020, I outlined the ins and outs of: The Vegan Cookbook Challenge! Click the title for more information.

Today I am sharing my third re-creation. Using a number generator, I landed on page 205 of The Vegan Cookbook for Beginners and the result was a simple recipe for Raw Coconut Fudge. Check out the menu category to see my past attempts. Without further ado, let’s see how I went below.



– 1 3/4 cups of chopped Walnuts 

– 2 tablespoons of Maple Syrup

– 1 tablespoon of Water 

– 2 tablespoons of Coconut Oil

– 1 1/2 cups of unsweetened Shredded Coconut 

– 2 tablespoons of unsweetened Cocoa Powder 

– 1/2 tablespoon of Vanilla Extract 

– A pinch of Ground Nutmeg 


1.) Finely chop 1/4 cup of the walnuts and set aside.

2.) Place the remaining walnuts in a food processor and blend until it forms a coarse flour.

3.) Transfer the flour to a bowl and stir in the remaining ingredients, including the 1/4 cup of chopped walnuts.

4.) Stir until the mixture is thick and well combined.

5.) Put the fudge into a dish to 1-inch thickness.

6.) Cover and chill until firm (about 1 hour) and then cut into 1-inch squares.


This dessert was so easy to make! I was actually surprised how simple the recipe was. It tasted delicious too. My only criticism was that I felt it needed more sugar as the cocoa powder made it a tad bitter. The crunchiness of the walnuts and the shredded coconut were a stand out for me. I highly recommend testing it!

I hope you enjoyed this post in The Vegan Cookbook Challenge! Let me know if you’ve made this dish before and have any tips on how to improve it. Thanks for reading!

Peace & Love xoxo
