Peanut. Butter. Fudge.
Yes, I’m on a fudge kick, and no one is gonna stop me.
This fudge was inspired by its chocolate fudge cousin and is somehow even easier to make. Probably because it only requires 4 ingredients and 30 minutes to make.
And yes! It’s still naturally sweetened and surprisingly healthy for you (hello, protein and healthy fats).
The base is made of coconut flakes whirled into coconut butter (a.k.a. nature’s frosting). Then comes a generous amount of creamy, salted peanut butter and melted coconut oil for a super-creamy texture. I tested the recipe without any coconut oil and must say it lacked that fudgy, creamy texture, so don’t skimp! The fourth ingredient is maple syrup for sweetness (and minerals!), but it could also be subbed for stevia if you’re trying to stay away from added sugar.
The result is this creamy, insanely rich peanut butter fudge that will fool anyone into thinking there’s loads of butter and sugar cloaked inside. But, little do they know, they’re basically eating a superfood.
I know you’re going to LOVE this fudge! It’s:
Perfectly (+ naturally) sweet
Quick + easy to make
& Insanely delicious
Keep this fudge on hand when you need a healthier dessert throughout the week. It would also make a lovely gift or carefree dessert for hosting. (Imagine your guests’ faces when you bring out a plate of this fudge – talk about coolest-host-in-town vibes!)
