Posted on

Celebrate the holidays without guilt with this delicious, low-calorie fudge. It also contains protein and fiber for added nutrition.

Total time:  02 M  30 S
Servings:  32
Calories:  50

Ingredients

  • 3 Medjool dates pitted
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 2 1/2 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups black beans cooked, drained, and rinsed (or canned beans rinsed well)

Nutritional Information

  • Fiber: 1g
  • Sugar: 5g
  • Protein: 1g

Instructions

  1. Add beans, dates, and vanilla to Twister jar and blend on a Low speed for 15 seconds, then a High speed until beans and dates are blended into a paste. This may take up to 2 minutes.
  2. Add oil, cocoa, and sugars to jar and blend again on a High speed until all ingredients are incorporated. Turn lid counterclockwise during blending.
  3. Press into 8-8-inch baking pan and chill in refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
  4. Cut into 1x1-inch cubes before serving.

Notes

To make in FourSide or WildSide+ jar, use 3-4 tbsp. of a liquid sweetener in place of dates (like honey, agave, maple syrup) or date paste, put all ingredient into jar and blend until combined. Start on a low speed and gradually increase to a high speed. You may need to stop blending and scrape the ingredients back down to the blade.

You can omit brown sugar and powdered sugar and use other sweeteners in their place. You may want to experiment until you get the right taste (about 4 tbsp. of honey/agave and 1/2 tsp. stevia work great!).

 Add your favorite nut or sprinkle with coconut flakes for an extra special treat!

  • Yes, you can!

  • This recipe is made using our Twister jar which has a Patented Twister lid with tines so, when you spin the lid, the tines force the ingredients on the side of the jar back down to the blade. You can learn more about the Twister jar here: http://www.blendtec.com/jar…

  • what do you mean about turning the lid during blending?

    Robyn on

  • My blender doesn’t have speed settings like 3 and 7. What are the settings that I use for a Classic 570 (Costco) machine?

    Michelle on

  • How much would I have to scale this down for the Mini Twister Jar?

    Redpandaa on

  • Use "Lo" for speeds 1-3, "Med" for speeds 4-6 and "Hi" for speeds 7-10. Happy blending!

  • You can use butter in place of the coconut oil :)

    Hanna Boehde on

  • This looks really good! Thanks for the recipe.

    John Hofland on

  • My current eating plan is no meat, dairy, eggs, oils. Is there anything I can use in place of the oil? Possibly peanut butter?

    Lynn on

  • Is there a non-dairy replacement for the coconut oil? I am making them for a vegan who has a coconut allergy.

    Deb Jordan on

  • When baking, I always, always use applesauce in the same measurement as oil.

    Mary Bogue on

  • Can I blend this in my NutriBullet?

    Mary on

  • i have the Classic 570, no twister jar, can i still use it for this recipe?

    ecoors11 on

  • I don’t have a Twister Jar. Can this be made in the Wild Side?

    Crmy Coco on

  • Use Earth Balance instead of real butter. It’s vegan.

    Terese on

  • Tastes exactly like beans!!!

    Kelsey on

  • Please see the "Variations" section above for instructions on how to make it in the WildSide+ jar.

  • Ummmmmmmm…did you put in the other ingredients? This fudge is amazing! ALL of my coworkers are bowled over, including one who is a badass baker. :)

    Hollis Wakefield on

  • https://uploads.disquscdn.c… i made this recipe today using red kidney beans and 2 tsp agave instead of sugar and 1/2 tsp stevia. Also cut the cocoa to 1/4 cup – mixed in 3 crushed Annies organic sandwich cookies at the end and stirred it in by hand – they came out amazing !

    Suzane nastasi on

  • can we use canned black beans rinsed really well? 19 oz can?
