Paleo Pumpkin Pie Fudge

This paleo pumpkin pie fudge tastes just like the creamy center of a pumpkin pie and is the perfect way to indulge in a pumpkin treat this fall without all the added sugar.

Admittedly, I’m not the biggest fan of pumpkin pie. I know, roll your eyes, call me crazy, I’m used to it. I love pumpkin and I love pie, I just don’t totally love them together. To me, pie should be reserved for any and all fruit fillings, nothing creamy.

I don’t care if it’s pumpkin, coconut cream, peanut butter, pecan or god forbid anything with a puffy meringue topping (gross), if it’s not fruit, don’t put it in my pie.

So what’s a girl to do this time of year to get her fill of pumpkin treats? Make paleo pumpkin pie fudge! Fudge is awesome in so many ways, but the facts that it requires absolutely no baking and you can feel satisfied and happy with one tiny little square are what sell me on it every time.

Without any chocolate in this pumpkin pie fudge the process becomes even easier than usual. No need to temper, everything just gets thrown in a sauce pot, melted and mixed and then sets in the freezer for an hour. Thanks to coconut butter, you still get that creamy, buttery fudge-like consistency and taste but without all the sugar (kinda like in these chocolate coco pumpkin bars).

Each bite is so good it almost made me want to be that crazy lady passing out individually wrapped homemade treats of it on Halloween instead of the commercial sugar-laden chemical candy bars we give kids buckets of.

But, I refrained knowing that 99.9% of parents would’ve thrown it out thinking I was somehow poisoning their child and just about the same percentage of kids would’ve pushed it aside for a peanut butter cup instead.

It’s cool though, more for me.

    Nice. The best diet I ever tried is Paleo. Lost weight, and feel much better and healthier.
    The meals are also much better and tastier than other diets. It not about the looks, it’s about health. I use the paleo grubs cookbook.

    This fudge looks awesome! I’m a huge fudge lover but never think to make except at Christmastime. If you passed me one of these bad boys I would definitely eat it…but I might eat the peanut butter cup too :)

    Sounds like a wonderful recipe. Really want to try. What is the difference between coconut butter and coconut oil? My coconut oil is solid at room temp and so seems like a butter. Do you mean coco butter?

    Good recipe Gina, but for people who need to avoid sugar (like most of my members) we could do better than maple syrup which is still full of sugar.

    I recommend natural sweeteners like Monk Fruit (zero calories) or a product called, interestingly enough, “Just Like Sugar” (again zero calories) which tastes like sugar but is made of inulin. So it’s also loaded with fiber, an added bonus!
