Ingredients

 

1 cup natural peanut butter (creamy or crunchy will work)

1/4 cup coconut oil, melted

2 tablespoons raw honey (Y.S. Organic Bee Farms Raw Honey was used in this recipe)

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar, optional (see below)

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

 

 

Directions

 

Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl. The optional confectioners’ sugar should be used if you plan to take out of the freezer for more than 5 minutes before eating. This will help to bind the fudge and prevent it from softening up too quickly. Pour mixture into a lightly oiled 5″ x 7″ pan. Cover and freeze until set, approximately 1 hour. Cut into 24 1-inch squares and store in an airtight container in the freezer.

 

NOTE: This fudge should be kept in the freezer until ready to eat, as it will soften up quickly. Enjoy a small piece of fudge as part of a clean eating lifestyle. Confectioners’ sugar is used only if you plan to take it out of the freezer for an extended period of time. This treat is perfect when opting for a portion control snack. Take one out of the freezer and enjoy!
