Salted Caramel Coconut Fudge Date Squares

Vegan Coconut Date Squares with Sea Salt


Vegan and Gluten Free Salted Caramel Coconut Fudge Recipe 

Salted Caramel Coconut Fudge is a simple recipe made with whole food ingredients; it is delicious, healthy, and perfect for a mid afternoon treat. Technically it isn't really fudge, since it gets its creamy texture from coconuts, not butter or milk, but the texture and richness is just like biting into a piece of fudge. I suppose I could call these Coconut Date Squares, but where's the fun it that! 

The salted caramel flavor is made by cooking down rehydrated dates, and sprinkling the squares with sea salt. The dates also help sweeten the squares, so no refined sugar is needed for this recipe. The creamy coconut and sweet dates make a perfect combination for a healthy, no-bake snack with just five simple ingredients. These salted caramel coconut fudge squares are a great plant-based vegan alternative to traditional fudge, and much healthier too!
