Here are the 9 best ever Paleo fudge recipes that you can make for Christmas or anytime you might want to. They are full of good healthy fat and no refined sugar. If you love candies like this but not all of the sugar overload that comes with it? These recipes are the answer you’ve been looking for. Most of these are made with coconut oil or coconut butter with either honey or maple syrup added. Some are chocolate and some aren’t. A couple have fruit added for a different flavor and gorgeous colors.
Coconut oil is a very healthy fat. That means the fat in coconut oil is full of good fat that lowers your cholesterol instead of raising your cholesterol levels. I’ve been experimenting and so has my sister and her husband. We’ve all been eating a lot of coconut oil instead of other oils.
The last time I had my cholesterol checked after eating more coconut oil my bad cholesterol had gone down from 248 to 224 in just 4 months. For my sister and her husband who have been eating it longer and eat more of it, their cholesterol has gone down from about 250 or 300 to under 200. That’s proof enough for me. None of us did anything else that would cause our cholesterol levels to lower.
What could be better than eating something so delicious and healthy at the same time? It really is eating candy and getting healthy. Wow! I can have my candy and eat it too! 🙂 Is that really possible?
Personally, I’ve never liked these treats very much. I always thought it was just too darn sweet. Maybe that’s because traditional recipes are full of sugar and very sweet and very unhealthy. On the other hand, these Paleo recipes are healthy. A couple of them have very little sugar added in the form of maple syrup or honey.
One blogger said to just not add the maple syrup if you want it to be Keto. Keto is a diet very similar to Paleo but without any sugar added and that includes honey or maple syrup. #9 is actually considered to be Keto because it has no added sweeteners. It’s very similar to a fat bomb.
Go ahead give these recipes a try and let me know which one is your favorite.

Creamed Coconut – Frozen Blueberries – Lemon Rind – Maple Syrup
Lemon and blueberries are a match made in heaven. They twirl and dance on your tongue creating a wonderful medley of flavors. Creamed coconut has been added to make it softened and decadent. Creamed coconut is not the same as coconut cream. Creamed coconut comes in a sold block that melts when it’s heated. It is the dehydrated unsweetened meat of a coconut that has been grown into a semi-solid white cream. At room temperature, it solidifies.
