OK - here is what I did with calorie and carb counts. I would eat 2 pieces a day and I do figure this into my total calorie/carb counts. I do believe it matters in the counts ..

Smasty's Chocolate Pecan Fudge - variation 1

5 T melted C Oil
3 T cocoa powder
3 T of ground flax seeds
2 T of shredded unsweetened coconut (got it at whole foods)
1.5 oz pecans, chopped
Scoop of vanilla whey protein powder (I used Cytosport)
Liquid Splenda (= to 1 cup)

line an 8x8 pan w/ plastic wrap, spread in pan and refrigerate, cut into 6 bars

6 servings; 205 calories; 2.15 net carbs

Next time I will try making them in muffin papers, I think they would be nicer not as thin .. but they do taste amazing!! I was using spectrum co oil but I think the Nutiva is tastier ..

I haven't! Jennifer is awesome! I have to admit whenever I see any sweeteners I haven't used before, I shy away from those recipes, lol! I have to say that would be worth trying tho. The one I posted above here "Smasty's" is really really awesome, but Jennifer's would probably hold up better out of the fridge ... that has always been an issue for me! lol!

Thanks for the link!

Love these recipes!

I love all these recipes. I have the book regarding coconut oil, and know how good it is for you. I made some chocolate pecan fudge this morning, using liquid Stevia, coconut oil, vanilla, pecans, and cocoa powder. I didn't have a recipe in front of me, so I ws winging it. One tweak really made a difference for me - I added sea salt. (Don't use regular table salt.) We tend to have a taste bud set for salty and sweet. Think peanut butter and chocolate. I think that's what makes buttery things taste so great - that touch of salty taste. I made some great oatmeal raisin cookies once, then did exactly the same thing next time with some added sea salt, and it made all the difference. It tends to cut the overly sweet taste and makes it even better. I love all the ideas everyone has added along the way.

This isn't exactly a "fudge", but it's very similar to fudge to me. I made it to try and increase my coconut oil daily intake. I find it a lot more palatable than taking coconut oil straight. Kept very well in my freezer in a ziploc bag for a month or longer.

Birgit's Chocolate Creme is made with coconut oil. And it hardens to truffle-like consistency. And it's thoroughly delicious. My only mistake was making 1 batch. The second time I made it, I doubled it.

I was around back when this thread started. Back on a Paleo/LC diet due to my husband being diagnosed w/ Diabetes. Doing well so far but miss a little sweet now and then. Off to make some of Sue's today with some added almond butter. Love the sea salt addition idea!
