Hi everyone!

Every year pumpkin season rolls around and like every good blogger I start brainstorming all the things I can make pumpkin-y to fill the pumpkin mania void.  Last year I went all out with Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats, Pumpkin Pie Smoothie, Savory & Creamy Pumpkin Pasta, 3 Ingredient Pumpkin Muffins, Crock Pot Healthier Pumpkin French Toast and No Bake Pumpkin Energy Bites.  I don’t think I realized I did so much until I went back and looked!  I guess I’m a total pumpkin fan.

Since I kind of blew up pumpkin season last year, I’ve been a little slower in new ideas this year.  So far I’ve come up with 3 Ingredient Pumpkin Nice Cream and Crock Pot Pumpkin Spice Granola… BUT this Healthy Pumpkin Fudge recipe has actually been the star of pumpkin season in my house.

Probably because I decided to cover it in chocolate… ya know?

This recipe is so easy!  It’s no bake, super simple and only 6 ingredients.

Plus it’s naturally gluten free, paleo friendly and kind of magic.  (To make completely paleo you can leave of the chocolate or sub a low sugar dark chocolate bar.)

It’s made by melting your favorite nut butter, coconut oil and pumpkin puree together!  You can add some maple syrup and pumpkin pie spice for sweetness and flavor.  The coconut oil allows the combination to firm up in the fridge and turn fudge like.

The chocolate drizzle goes on as an extra step at the end and in my opinion it is totally worth the effort.    The darker the chocolate, the better.

I was a little afraid this was going to be one of those recipes that was a little healthy for the Hubs taste… but he ate it right up and asked for “those pumpkin-y dessert things” the next night.  So I’ll consider this one a success!

I hope you will give it a try and like it as much as I do!
