This melt-in-your-mouth almond butter freezer fudge is a simpler alternative to traditional fudge, incorporating creamy almond butter (or other nut butter), coconut oil, maple syrup, and a sprinkle of salt. The no-cook preparation makes it a convenient option for busier days. Because it melts at room temperature, it’s not travel-friendly, but it’s an easy and satisfying treat to keep on hand in the freezer at home.

This dessert suits gluten-free and dairy-free diets and also fits into the Anti-Inflammatory Plan recommendations. Keep reading to learn how to make it!


almond butter freezer fudge1 1/2 cups smooth almond butter or other nut butter (sunflower seed butter or tahini work great)

1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted

1/4 cup maple syrup or other liquid sweetener (like agave nectar or yacon syrup)

Sprinkle of flaked sea salt


  1. Line a square (8×8) baking dish with parchment paper.
  2. Add the almond butter and syrup to a medium bowl, then pour in the melted coconut oil and stir to combine.
  3. Pour mixture into the baking dish and spread out evenly with a spatula or by wiggling the dish.
  4. Place in the freezer for about 1 hour, until solid.
  5. Remove from the freezer and turn the fudge onto a cutting board. Working quickly (because the fudge melts easily) cut it into small squares.
  6. Return the squares to the freezer until you’re ready to eat them.
