Green Fudge (Raw-Vegan)

I usually make all of my raw fudges brown, because most of the time my main ingredients are dates and cocoa powder. I wanted to see, and taste something different this time. I decided to "go green," with pistachios and pumpkin seeds :-) They taste awesome and also come loaded with nutrition from pistachios, which are heart-healthy and pumpkin seeds, which are a good source of protein, iron, and other minerals.
  • Raw pistachios (unsalted, and not roasted) - 1/2 cup
  • Raw pumpkin seeds (unsalted, and not roasted) - 1/2 cup
  • Organic raw honey - 2 Tbs.
  • Virgin coconut oil - 1 Tbs.
  • Himalayan salt - a pinch
  • Chopped raw cashew nuts - a handful

  • Grind the pistachios and pumpkin seeds to fine powder in a dry blender or food processor.
  • Transfer to a bowl, add honey and coconut oil and mix well to combine and make sort of a dough. Incorporate chopped cashew nuts.
  • Spread in between 2 sheets of parchment paper to about 1/4 inch thickness. Keep refrigerated for an hour.
  • Cut into rectangles or any other shapes. Enjoy!!
