Peppermint Hemp Fat Fudge (low-carb, dairy-free, keto, vegan + paleo)

Peppermint Hemp Fat Fudge #keto #lowcarb #highfat #vegan #lowcarb #dairyfree #paleoDeliciously smooth dairy-free and vegan fudge that’s pure fat, perfect for your keto diet throughout the holidays. Made smooth with Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts.

Oh guys, this fudge! Instead of using the classic keto ingredients like full-fat coconut milk, or nut butter to make this fudge, I used soaked Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts! The soaked hemp hearts being smoothness to this recipe without the use of nuts, making this keto dessert accessible to more people.

I’ve created a lot of recipes over the year with Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts, and this one is definitely in the top 3 (Fudge Bars and Overnight Oats taking first and second place).

And, I’m showing you how to make them step-by-step in today’s recipe video…

If you don’t have Hemp Hearts just yet, you can find them at any grocery store, health food store, or your local Costco. If they’re pretty challenging to get in your area, I’ve provided some suggestions on what to use in its place in the details of the recipe below.

A daily delight! These fat bombs taste just like fudge, without the dairy. And, they’re made smooth with hemp hearts. The count of final fat bombs that you’ll get from this recipe depends on the silicone mold used. I used a silicone mold with rectangular cavities measuring 1 by ½-inch (2.5 by 1.25 cm). I like using rectangular molds for this recipe so it feels more fudge-like, but any silicone mold will do the trick!

You have the option of adding 1 to 2 teaspoons of confectioners’ erythritol or 2 to 3 drops of liquid stevia, to taste. I found the end recipe perfectly sweet due to the chocolate chips, but if you find that the mixture after blending isn’t to your liking, sweeten it up!

If you don’t have hemp hearts, you could use an equal amount of skinned and soaked almonds, raw soaked sesame seeds, or raw soaked sunflower seeds.

Makes 1 cup (240 ml) and 16 fat bombs, once divided
  1. Place a silicone mold with rectangular cavities on a baking sheet, set aside.
  2. Place all ingredients in the jug of your blender, and blend until smooth.
  3. Pour mixture into prepared mold and transfer to the fridge to set for 20 minutes, or until fudge is hard to the touch.
  4. Remove the fudge pieces from the silicone mold and place on a plate. Enjoy!
For potential leftovers, store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days, or in the freezer for up to 1 month.

  1. Hi Leanne I love everything you offer to the Keto community and have several of your ebooks,cookbooks, and listen to your podcast faithfully!

    I first started keto this September and I got great results losing (assuming since I don’t weigh myself my pants were looser) inches however, over the past month I feel My pants getting tighter. I love Fatbombs and feel I should avoid them since I’m addicted. I hate the way my pants are getting tighter and am wondering too much fat?

    Did you have similiar experiences in the beginning of a Keto /losing inches than gaining some back? I read your books and I know you lost a lot of weight doing Keto but had to adjust for your hormones.

    Any suggestions would greatly be appreciate.

  2. Hi Leanne,

    Do you have a modification for using raw cacao powder instead of the chips? Maybe use the powder and add oil?

    I just bought your book…making my way through it now…AMAZING! Thank you!

    • I haven’t tried it but I’m sure you can use a mix of cacao powder, melted cacao butter, and some type of sweetener to create your own chocolate. I’d just make it to your taste and then use the same amount (100 grams). If you give it a try, let us know how it goes! :)

  3. Thank you a lot for this. I have to avoid dairy, eggs, wheat, nuts, beans and legumes and starches for the most part, so finding recipes I can use is really hard. I made this today with some modifications, and my sister and I love it!

    Really appreciate all the work you do. And love the “thin and healthy on keto” video.

    • Awesome, I’m so happy you both loved it!

      Thanks so much for your support, Rachel <3

  4. Hey Leanne,
    Thank you for all that you for healthy bodies!!!

    Question? How many fat bombs can I have in a day?

    • You’re so welcome! Feel free to have as many as you’re hungry for. However, I wouldn’t recommend replacing all of your meals with fat bombs ;)

  5. Leanne, as a member of the U.S. military I am not allowed to eat hemp products. Suggestions on substitutions?
