Quinoa + Date Fudge (GF)

Quinoa and Dates Fudge Quinoa and Dates Fudge1

Superfoods fudge and balls are easy to make. You just need a food processor to blitz it all together. Healthy fudge in this case may I add, as there is strictly no added sugar and it is almost raw. Almost as I used grilled quinoa for this one. You can easily substitute quinoa with goji berries / dry fruits like apricots / raw nuts if you wanted to go raw. Even easier as you don’t have to get the oven on or burn the first batch of your quinoa like I did! I was intrigued to use quinoa this time around! Gave an earthy taste and I am hooked. Dates + cocoa taste soo delish! I brought some to work and to the box later on, they were much enjoyed.

You cannot find easier recipe than this 5 ingredients fudge.

Quinoa + Date Fudge

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 3 hours, 10 minutes

Yield: 25 – 36 squares

  • 1/2 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 8 medjool dates
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
  • 3 – 4 tablespoons water


  1. In a dry skillet, toast the quinoa on medium heat until it begins to pop and is fragrant, about 1 – 2 minutes. Toss it a few times to ensure even toasting. I popped mine in the oven on high temp 200 degrees celcius for a few minutes. Keep a close eye as it gets hot very quickly – I burnt my first batch :/
  2. Add quinoa to a high powered blender and blend on high until it resembles the texture of flour. Transfer to a food processor.
  3. Add dates, cocoa powder and coconut oil. Process until combined.
  4. With processor running, add water 1 tablespoon at a time until a dough has formed.
  5. Line a small container (sandwich sized works great) with plastic wrap. Press dough into container and smooth with hands. Sprinkle with sea salt (if using).
  6. Place in freezer for 3 – 4 hours until set.
  7. Remove from freezer, a cut into small, 1/2″ squares (remember these are bite sized!). Store in freezer and enjoy whenever the chocolate craving hits.
