Hemsley + Hemsley - Healthy & Delicious



Satisfy your sweet tooth with this healthy, simple and delicious fudge! 


  • 1/2 mugful of pitted dates (chewy dried dates rather than the larger soft ones) or to taste

  • 1 x 340g jar of light tahini

  • 4 tablespoons coconut oil, at room temperature, or extra-virgin olive oil

  • Sea salt flakes

  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds and desiccated coconut, or goji berries to decorate (optional)


  • 1.

    Line a small baking tin – about 11cm x 17cm – or similar-sized receptacle (we used a glass lunchbox) with baking parchment.

  • 2.

    Place the dates in a food processor with the tahini, coconut oil and 1/8 teaspoon of salt and blend to a smooth, thick paste. Taste and add more salt if desired.

  • 3.

    Transfer the mixture to the prepared tin and use a spatula to press the mixture down evenly.

  • 4.

    Decorate the top with a sprinkle of sesame seeds and desiccated coconut or goji berries (if using), pour over any leftover oil from the food processor and press down gently.

  • 5.

    Freeze or chill in the fridge until firm – about 15 minutes in the freezer and 30 minutes in the fridge. Store in the fridge and serve chilled.
