Chocolate Pumpkin Pie Fudge with Hemp Seeds
Makes: 20-ish 1 by 1-inch squares
1/2 cup coconut butter*
6 tablespoons pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
2 tablespoons almond butter
1/4 cup raw cacao powder
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon Ceylon cinnamon
2 1/2 tablespoons hemp seeds, divided
Add all ingredients except hemp seeds to a food processor and mix until creamy consistency scraping down the sides as necessary. Once mixed, add 2 tablespoons of hemp seeds and pulse until incorporated. Pour/scrape the mixture into a small sealable container lined with parchment paper leveling out the top with a spatula. Sprinkle the remaining hemp seeds (1/2 tablespoon) onto the mixture. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours or until completely set. Remove fudge by lifting the parchment paper and slice it into 1 by 1 inch squares. Store fudge in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. Alternatively, you can store these in the freezer.
Notes for the non-chef:
*Do not replace the coconut butter with coconut oil, they’re very different. Subbing coconut oil will result in a mess.
Store-bought coconut butter is incredibly pricey so we always use homemade. Click here to learn how to make your own.
