Preheat oven to 350°F/175°C and line a 9x9 inch pan with parchment paper. In a small bowl, whisk together flaxseed meal and water. Let sit 5 minutes to thicken. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, coconut sugar and salt. In another large bowl, mix almond butter, coconut oil and vanilla until smooth. Add flaxseed meal mixture and mix thoroughly. Add flour mixture and mix until crumbly and evenly incorporated. Spread crust mixture evenly in pan and press down firmly. Bake until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Let cool for about 30 minutes.

In a large bowl, mix almond butter, coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla and salt until evenly combined. Add cocoa powder and mix until well combined. Pour mixture over cooled crust and smooth evenly. Refrigerate until set, about 30 minutes.


Place cashews in a blender or the bowl of a food processor fitted with the blade attachment. Process to a very fine powder. Scrape the bottom of the blender or food processor bowl to loosen any packed cashew powder. Add coconut oil, maple syrup and vanilla. Process until smooth. Add zucchini and process until smooth. Add lemon juice and mix to incorporate. Pour mixture over set fudge layer and smooth evenly. Sprinkle the top with a generous selection of decorative items, such as sliced almonds, dried cherries and edible flowers. Refrigerate until set, about 1 hour or overnight. Cut into 16 squares.
