This is a genius recipe from Jordan Pie. These fudge slices are loaded with caffeic acid, a polyphenol found in both coffee and cacao. This is an antioxidant that’s tooted for having anti-inflammatory effect. They certainly give you a ‘buzz’ like no other—especially with all the healthy fats, too! After one slice, you’ll as feel sharp as a pin and super alert, so best eaten early in the day for maximum benefit, and a restful night sleep!

    Method

    1. Add all the ingredients, except the butter to a food processor and blitz until it looks like a fine crumb. Add the melted butter and blend for a few moments until it comes together. The mixture should stay together when you press it between your fingers. If it’s too crumbly, you may need to add a bit more melted butter.
    2. Using the back of a metal spoon, evenly press the base mixture into a lined tin (approx. 20x25cm). Place the tin in the fridge while you prepare the fudge layer.
    3. In a saucepan, gently melt the coconut cream, coconut oil and cacao butter with the coffee.
    4. Add to a blender with the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth and creamy. Adjust the coffee, cacao and sweetness to your taste.
    5. Using a spatula, pour the filling on top of the base and smooth out evenly. Place it in the fridge for about 3 hours, until set.
    6. Once set, slice into squares and enjoy.
    7. These will store best in the fridge, but can be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.
