Its starting to cool down out here and I keep getting the munchies. I make some variations of this fudge and keep it available in the refrigerator for weeks to satisfy the sweet snack craving with a hot cup of tea.
These simple fudge bars use smooth almond butter, coconut butter and maple syrup. Warm up the coconut butter, then fold in the nut butter of choice and some maple. Mix until smooth and use two thirds of the mixture for the nut butter layer. Add in some chocolate or cocoa powder and make the chocolate layer. If you are up for it, you can make swirls and stuff on the top layer for prettier bars. These no Bake bars are Pb cups in bar form!
I use smooth almond butter for these bars. Use any other nut butter like Peanut butter or cashew butter for variation. These might work well with sunflower seed butter as well. Add flavors as vanilla or more cinnamon to taste. I make the bars without the chocolate layer and add freshly ground cardamom seeds. Its almost a fudgy Almond coconut Indian Burfi!

You can also use coconut oil in the fudge. I find the coconut butter makes the fudge mess melty and messy at room temperature.

** some almond butter brands have too much oil added and can interfere in setting the fudge
Use other flavors as vanilla or cardamom for variation.
To make just nut butter fudge: Use 1 cup nut butter and mix into the melted coconut butter. Pour onto parchment to chill.
You can use virgin coconut oil or refined for neutral flavor instead of coconut butter. Use about a 1/3 cup coconut oil and 1 cup nut butter to make up the volume.
