Healthy Peanut Butter Fudge Recipe

healthy sugar free peanut butter fudge that's SO easy to make...you won't believe that it didn't come from a candy shoppe!

This Healthy Peanut Butter Fudge is going to save me this holiday season. They taste like something naughty and decadent out of that little candy shop that you passed on vacation. But these little treats are full of nourishing (think bulletproof!) fats, and protein, making them a perfect little pick me up treat. And they’re JUST as delicious as they look!

Here in the south, our fall temperatures are still (as of November) spiking up into the mid 80’s. So I keep these little beauties in the fridge or they’ll get melty fast. A flat glass 6×8 storage dish with a snap on lid is perfect for keeping a batch on hand…I just rotate out flavors from week to week.healthy sugar free peanut butter fudge that's SO easy to make...you won't believe that it didn't come from a candy shoppe!

I like peanut butter fudge to be super smooth and velvety, so I opt for the smoothest grind of nut butter I can find. Or choose chunky if you want some nut pieces. But for this recipe, I would not use a natural grind with any grit to it.

And speaking of keeping it smooth, I recommend using Gentle Sweet as a sugar free, natural alternative, or you can sub any type of granulated stevia/erythritol sweetener or a healthy sugar free sweetener of your choice (see sugar free conversion chart here). If you’d like to keep these all natural and more Paleo than Trim Healthy Mama, and use the power of raw honey to sweeten these (which is what I’d do for my kids), I posted that version of Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge as a guest blogger over here at Mommypotamus.healthy sugar free peanut butter fudge that's SO easy to make...you won't believe that it didn't come from a candy shoppe!

Since I want to boost my healthy fat intake, I use my favorite brands of grassfed butter, and refined organic coconut oil for these, but you really can use what you have on hand. As written, this is SUCH an easy fudge recipe, but if you wanted to get creative or gourmet, you could always stir in some add-ins, or top with flaked sea salt or peanut pieces.

Healthy Peanut Butter Fudge Yields 48 one inch pieces Prep time: 3 minutes Total time: 1 hour, 3 minutes
Author:
Serves: 48
Ingredients
  • 1 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1 cup organic coconut oil, liquid; I like refined, but you can use either
  • ½-2/3 cup gentle sweet, or equivalent of your favorite sweetener-see chart here- if you're using granules, I'd recommend grinding them into a powder first using a small blender.
  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • ⅓ cup cocoa powder
  • salt to taste
Instructions
  1. Stir together peanut butter and coconut oil in a small bowl.
  2. Remove one cup of peanut butter mixture, and set aside.
  3. To remaining mixture in bowl, add softened butter, sweetener, and cocoa.
  4. Stir well. Taste and adjust sweet and salty to your liking.
  5. Pour chocolate mixture into a 6x8 or similar glass dish, and spread smooth.
  6. Pour reserved peanut butter mixture over chocolate and use a knife to make swirls, by 'cutting' stripes in opposite directions. I love this part!
  7. Chill fudge for about an hour, or until firm enough to slice and enjoy.
Notes
Trim Healthy Mama notes: This is an "S" recipe, full of healthy fats! There are no limitations on S recipes, but they are calorie dense. Thankfully, they are so satiating that just one is all I need for a treat.

    HI there, do you have a recommendation for a smooth peanut butter? Everything I use is very coarse. Thanks for your help!

    Hi Gwen,
    Thank you for all the THM info! I was wondering if you have an easy way to mix your peanut butter? It’s such a pain to mix with the oil. Argh!
    Thanks,
    Stacy
