Raw Cacao Baklava Fudge

Raw Cacao Baklava Fudge

pistachios

I know. I wan’t my Baklava without all that filo pastry, butter and sugar too. Welcome to Raw Chocolate Baklava Fudge! So sweet, delicious and surprisingly Baklava-ish, even without the filo! You could certainly make it without the raw cacao as well, if you feel like a less intense raw caramel variation. I just love those extra antioxidants… sprinkled everywhere.

RAW CACAO BAKLAVA FUDGE

Pistachio Crumble Base and Topping: 

1 1/4 cups raw pistachios

1 1/4 cups desiccated coconut

1 teaspoon cinnamon

3 drops pure essential oil of lemon, (I used one by Young Living), OR 1 – 2 teaspoons lemon zest

1 tablespoon lemon juice

2 tablespoons raw organic coconut oil

1 tablespoon coconut sugar

WHIZ ALTOGETHER in food processor until fine but still having some texture. Press two thirds of mixture into the base of a lined dish approx 27 x 20cm to create a firm base. Place base into the fridge/freezer to harden while you create filling. Set aside the remainder third of Pistachio Crumble mixture in a separate bowl so you can continue to use the food processor…

Cacao Medjool Caramel Fudge Filling:

1 1/2 cups pitted Medjool dates

1/2 teaspoon vanilla powder

4 tablespoons raw organic coconut oil

1/2 – 3/4 teaspoon sea salt

2 tablespoons raw honey or rice malt / maple syrup

2 – 3 tablespoons raw cacao powder

1/4 cup raw walnuts or extra whole raw pistachios optional, added at the end for texture

WHIZ ALTOGETHER in food processor until thick, smooth and velvety. Spread filling carefully over chilled base, sprinkle with whole pistachios if using, and top with remaining third Pistachio Crumble mixture. Press down with the back of a clean spoon and set Baklava in the fridge or freezer to firm completely. I decorated these with a little ‘Chok Dollop’ from the book. Serve cold, with a pot of tea or a cup of Hit The Spot Cacao (in the book) – perfection!

    I think I’m addicted to this baklava! I use to be addicted to the “real” baklava, but this is my new obsession! I made this on Monday after wanting to make it for months! I ate this all up all by myself, hiding the entire batch so no one in my house would find it! It was soooo delicious!!! I am going to be making another batch today because I’m all out of it and can’t be out of it for another hour! It’s so delicious! My boyfriend even asked if I wanted any of the “real” baklava the other day and I was like NO WAY! It doesn’t even compare! Your baklava is absolutely delicious and has so many different flavors inside of it! I never need the other baklava again! Thank you so much for sharing this delicious (AND HEALTHY) recipe! <3 All of my love from Sunny South Florida!!!!
