This fudge is very dark, satisfying and literally melts in your mouth. It includes not only raw cacao- a well known longevity and heart tonic- but also maca. Maca naturally assists with hormone production and dealing with stressors of any kind. The ingredients used are fairly neutral, so it tends to digest well with any type of meal. This recipe was adapted slightly from Julie Morris's Dynamite Fudge in SuperFood Kitchen. I love this book and would highly recommend it to anyone looking to expand their healthy recipe collection.
2 T. maca powder
1 T. mesquite powder
6 T. lucuma powder
1/2 c. cacao powder
1/4 c. coconut sugar
6 T. coconut oil
1/4 c. raw agave nectar, or maple syrup
1/4 tsp. sun fire, himalayan or sea salt
In a medium bowl, mix all the dry ingredients together. Add the coconut oil and agave or maple syrup, and mix again until combined. If mixing by hand, use clean hands to knead the mixture for 1 more minute.
Place a sheet of wax wrap on a plate and pour the mixture on top. Mold the fudge into a 1-inch thick pie. Refrigerate for a minimum of 30 minutes to solidify, then slice thinly. (Alternatively, mold it into a square and cut into 1-inch squares.)
Optional: Sprinkle with coconut flakes and goji berries to add some color to your presentation!
For best results, keep refrigerated and wrapped until ready to enjoy.
