Paleo Coconut Fudge

Food for backcountry activities - skiing and hiking - has been one of our big stumbling blocks with our paleo diet. When Dave headed out for a week of backcountry skiing at Icefall Lodge, I made a big batch of coconut fudge and it was a huge hit. Just the right amount of sweetness and a good hit of calories to provide the energy necessary for long days of skiing. This is not an everyday snack.

From Make it Paleo, makes 12 squares


1 cup coconut butter (or 3/4 cup coconut oil and 1/4 cup coconut flour)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup cocoa powder
2 tablespoons maple syrup


Melt the coconut butter in a medium bowl in the microwave.

Add the remaining ingredients and mix until smooth. Transfer to a loaf pan lined with wax paper. Smooth flat with a spatula. Refrigerate over night, until firm.

Cut into squares and serve.
