Almond Sea Salt Freezer Fudge
I hadn't heard of "freezer fudge" until a few years ago when I tried out the infamous Keto diet. While the diet didn't last long (it wasn't for me), it was worth trying solely for the fact that I discovered this glorious treat. Freezer fudge is a high-fat, healthy indulgence often using a base of nut butter + coconut oil, and it's absolutely addicting. While there are many variations (chocolate, peanut butter, coconut, etc.), this version is my favorite. Not sweet enough to be called a 'salted caramel', but pretty dang close! And the addition of ground flax sneaks in a little bit of fiber, which no one is complaining about.
These are meant to be enjoyed frozen, so eat immediately out of the freezer (they'll melt quickly due to the coconut oil). They will stay good in your freezer for about 3 months, but doubt they'll last that long without being eaten!
Makes 8-10 small squares
1 c. creamy roasted almond butter (chunky and non-roasted will work fine too)
2 Tbs. maple syrup
1 Tbs. ground flax seed
3/4 tsp. sea salt
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
5 Tbs. melted coconut oil
Mix all of the ingredients together in a large bowl until well combined. Line an 8-9" square glass pan or tupperware with parchment paper, and slowly pour mixture in. Fudge will be about 1" high. Smooth over with a spoon or spatula. Place in freezer for at least one hour. Once frozen, cut into squares, and store, frozen, in a lidded container. Enjoy!
Note: Instead of a square dish, you can use an ice tray so that the fudge freezes into perfect squares.
