This fudge is inspired by my friend, Alix, with whom I had the privilege of staying for a few nights in Berlin. Her morning routine always involved roasted almond butter paired with gooey Medjool dates and a few pieces of extra dark chocolate, as well as a creamy bowl of overnight chia pudding. Everyday I looked forward to our breakfast, which she generously shared with me. The date-chocolate-almond butter combo is one I cherish to this day, and since my stay I’ve fallen in love with 99% dark chocolate.

Makes 16 squares


3.5 oz (or 1 bar) very dark chocolate, melted
½ cup almond butter
½ cup pitted dates


In a high-speed blender or small food processor, blend the ingredients until smooth. The mixture will be very thick. If it is too thick for your machine, add almond milk, brown rice syrup, water or more almond butter as needed.

Spread it evenly into a lined pan and leave in the freezer for 20 minutes or until hardened. Slice into squares and enjoy! Add extra almond butter on top if desired. These will keep for a month in the fridge.

  2. Thank you, Elisa! It drives me bonkers to read things like this. Are dates better than processed gross white sugar? Yes, for sure. But to just make a blanket statement that they don’t spike blood sugar without mentioning that amounts and context matter is irresponsible.

  3. Medjool dates or just regular? Does it matter?
