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. This looks AMAZING. I want to make it ASAP, but don’t have access to stevia-sweetened choc chips. Is it possible to substitute some combo of cacao powder + stevia + coconut oil?

    • Totally! I bet that would work. You can also try using a 100% dark chocolate bar and add stevia :)

  2. These are absolutely fantastic!! My kids want them in the fridge at all times! Love this recipe!! I found lego molds and used those for the kids =)

  3. Thank you so much for this recipe. I made some fudge a few days ago and it is DELICIOUS!! I also made the keto n’oatmeal fudge bars, but haven’t tasted it yet. I truly appreciate your advice, recipes and podcasts – you are the best!!

  4. Will eating hemp hearts test positive for THC? I work at a facility that performs random drug screening.

  5. Is there a way to use something besides the stevia-sweetened dark chocolate chips until I can order some? None of the grocery stores here carry it. Maybe unsweetened chocolate? Thanks!

    • You bet! Unsweetened chocolate would be a great choice. I would just measure it out so you know you’re using 100 grams of it and then add stevia as a sweetener to taste. Hope you enjoy these! :)

  6. Thanks for all your great recipes and inspiring ideas Leanne!!!! That one might go on the Christmas table this year!!! Have a great Christmas, bless you xx

  7. This looks great. One question–I had read that you shouldn’t soak Hemp hearts. Can you explain what the soaking does and if you can make the recipe without soaking the Hemp first? Thanks so much!!!

    • The hemp hearts are soaked so that they create a creamy consistency for the fudge. You can try it without soaking the hemp, but you’ll have to blend them for a long time until they turn into “butter.” I’m not sure if the texture of the fudge will still be the same, though. Please let us know how it goes if you try it! :)

  8. Could this be done with something other then hemp? Like chia? Hemp isn’t gluten free due to how they grow it. It is grown rotationally with wheat. We sadly learned this the hard way. We have only found one brand of hemp seeds to be certified gluten free which means they test each batch. Needless to say my husband nor my daughter can eat hemp seeds anymore for safety sake. What are your thoughts on altering the recipe? I would be happy to do a test run and let you know.

    • I have a severe gluten allergy and have NEVER had an issue with Manitoba Harvest hemp hearts. However, I totally understand your concern and I’m sure you can make this recipe successfully using a different nut/seed. I think chia would become too gelatinous but cashews, almonds, or sunflower seeds should do the trick! Please do– I’d love to know how it goes for you :)

  9. Great looking recipe, but I can’t get the nutritional info to come up. Thanks and Happy Holidays!
