Here's my version of Nutty Buttery Raw Vegan Fudge from Bitt Of Raw (http://www.bittofraw.com/2011/02/nutty-buttery-raw-vegan-fudge.html).  I was first introduced to this recipe from Oh She Glows Vegan Recipe Link Love http://ohsheglows.com/2011/03/19/recipe-link-love-march-19/ ) which always has me doing a ton of bookmarking!  I made my version with what I had on hand, so it is different from the original fudge recipe.  Plus, I microwaved the coconut oil and used roasted almond butter so it's not really raw either.  I decided that I couldn't really call it "Nutty Buttery Raw Vegan Fudge" so I came up with "Chocolately Energy Fudge."  The name definitely fits--one piece of this gives me a boost of power to fuel my workouts.  

Ingredients
1 cup almond butter
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/3 cup carob powder
1 cup agave nectar (I used a darker nectar this time, and while it is yummy, I prefer the lighter variety.)
3/4 cup coconut oil, melted
3 tablespoons psyllium husk
2 tablepoons vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon of sea salt
Hulled hemp seeds (optional)
Directions
1.  Melt the coconut oil in the microwave.
2.  Stir all the ingredients (except the hemp seeds) together until smooth.
3.  Pour into a loaf pan lined with parchment paper and sprinkle the hulled hemp seeds on top.
4.  Freeze for 1 hour.
5.  Cut into pieces.
6.  Store in the freezer.  It melts at room temp, so I enjoy these straight from the cold depths of the freezer.

More pictures are on my blog, if you wanna see 'em.

Cool! I'm not vegan, but these look/sound great - and I already have most of the ingredients to make them!

I'm not vegan or veggie either, but I do make a lot of that kind of food.
