A super delicious treat made with healthier ingredients. These vegan chocolate fudge squares are also gluten-free, so decadent and require no baking!
Vegan Chocolate Fudge Squares
Makes – 8 squares
For the base
80g oat flour – plain oats blended into a flour in the food processor
25g ground almonds
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 tbsp maple syrup
3.5 tbsp coconut oil, melted
For the fudge centre
250g soft dates (I used Medjool)
Pinch of salt
For the topping
100g dark chocolate
2 tbsp coconut oil
Mix the base ingredients in a bowl, then transfer and press down into a loaf tin lined with baking paper. Freeze for 15 minutes while you prepare the filling.
Place the dates, tahini and salt in a food processor and blend until you have a smooth, fudgey mixture. Transfer into the loaf tin and smooth down with a spatula.
Add the topping ingredients into a small heat-proof dish, melt in the microwave then pour on top of the fudge mixture. Refrigerate until the chocolate has set (about 10 minutes)
Slice into squares and enjoy!
Store in an air-tight container in the fridge.
My granddaughters don’t like chocolate. Is there something that can be used as a topping that is vegan but not chocolate? They can’t have dairy.
A dairy-free spread like Biscoff spread would work. Otherwise you could heat some nut butter + coconut oil and use that as a substitute 🙂
Sounds good but don’t understand measurements
Thanks Mary 🙂 Can I help clear anything up?
Loved these! I was unsure about the tahini as it tasted bitter used in the fudge, but paired with the chocolate it balances it well and it is delicious! Thanks Nadia, love all your recipes and your photography is fantastic 🙂
So glad you enjoyed them Christina 😀 I think a lot of people don’t like the idea of using tahini because it’s bitter, but in sweet treats it really does balance out the sweetness really well! xx
Hi, can the tahini be swapped for any nut butter ?
Yes, any nut or seed butter will work 🙂 The runnier the better. If your nut butter is on the thicker side, you may need to add a little bit of water/milk to help with the blending 🙂
Can I just use more oat flour to replace almonds as my daughter is anaphylactic to ALL nuts and most seeds (gluten & eggs)? Thanks, Donna
Hi Donna 🙂 Yes, more oat flour should work instead of ground almonds.
