This 3 ingredient maple walnut freezer fudge is both low carb and delicious. Best of all, just one or two will satisfy those sugar craving and fill you up too!I have such a sweet tooth. It’s my biggest downfall when it comes to losing weight. I’ve been trying all kinds of low carb cookie and candy recipes and the only ones that I really like are the coconut freezer candy ones. I make this chocolate peanut butter candy ALL THE TIME. I always have some in the freezer. But I thought it was time to expand my horizons. I remembered how one of my friends loved to get maple syrup and walnuts on her sundae. I thought that was so weird when I was little but now it sounds fantastic. So I’m forgoing the ice cream and making candy instead. It only has coconut oil, raw walnuts and maple syrup. It’s yummy!
The first thing you want to do is put your raw walnuts into a food processor and blend until it starts to turn into a butter. This may take up to 5 minutes. Then you add your maple syrup and coconut oil and blend for a few seconds more. It should like it does below. If you don’t processor your walnuts enough, it might be a bit chunkier but it will still taste fine. Walnuts seems to have a lot of moisture and they don’t seem to make a flour like most nuts. That’s what makes it great for this recipe.
Then you take the mixture and spoon into silicone molds if you have them or in a small baking dish. Then pop them into the freezer until they are done. I like to do it overnight to make sure they are solid enough to easily get out of the molds. Store them in a ziplock or other container in the freezer or refrigerator.
This does not make a huge batch. It made 15 pumpkin candies for me. I bought the silicone pumpkin molds at the dollar store FYI and I use them all the time. These are filling though. You wouldn’t sit down and put away a handful of them. The coconut will really satiate your hunger. At most I eat 2 at a time.
Well I hope you get a chance to try these little candies, especially if you are on a low carb diet. Coconut oil has so many wonderful properties and well I just like the taste of them. Enjoy!
