Peanut Butter Coconut Oil Fudge

This healthy peanut butter coconut oil fudge is honey-sweetened and packed full of healthy coconut oil. Try this easy fudge today!

Have you tried my fantastic coconut oil fudge yet? After I’d made that recipe many times, I decided to switch it up a bit and add some peanut butter. (Because peanut butter and chocolate is, of course, one of the best flavor combinations.) This peanut butter coconut oil fudge is a delicious twist on the original: all the chocolately goodness plus rich, nutty peanut butter flavor.

Like my other coconut oil fudge recipe, I love this recipe because it’s really simple to make and is a tasty way to add more healthy coconut oil to your diet. It also keeps really well in the freezer, so I usually make a double batch and then we get to enjoy it for quite a while.

If you don’t like the taste of coconut oil, you can try substituting refined coconut oil for the virgin coconut oil called for in the recipe. I haven’t tried this myself, though, so can’t comment on whether you will also have the adjust the amounts of the other ingredients.

Recommended Products

Immersion blender: I highly recommend using an immersion blender to ensure that the honey is thoroughly emulsified with the other ingredients. You CAN do this in your regular blender or even food processor, but I like using my immersion blender because it means I have fewer dishes to wash. (Fewer dishes is pretty much one of my life goals.) I have this immersion blender and have been very happy with it.

8 x 8 glass baking dish: I cool all of my fudge recipes in Pyrex baking dishes. When making a single recipe, I use this 8 x 8 baking dish. For a double recipe, I use this large rectangular baking dish. You can use any sort of glass or ceramic dish that you want.

Parchment paper: While you CAN pour your coconut oil fudge directly into your glass dish, it’s much easier to remove it when you line the dish with parchment paper first. I like this brand of unbleached parchment paper.

Virgin coconut oil: I buy this virgin coconut oil at Costco. If you’re a Costco member, be sure to get it there–I’m sure it’s much cheaper than online!

Coconut milk: I always buy this brand of coconut milk because it comes in a carton and is free of gums and preservatives. In my experience, the best price can be found at your local Asian market, but you can also buy it online here.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Melt coconut oil in a small saucepan on your stovetop.
  2. Once coconut oil is melted, turn off the heat and add the cocoa powder, coconut milk, peanut butter, honey, vanilla and salt.
  3. Use your immersion blender to mix all ingredients directly in your saucepan. This may take a minute or two, depending on how powerful your immersion blender is. If at any point the mixture becomes too thick to mix, you can gently heat your saucepan again to reliquify your oil.
  4. Line a glass baking dish with parchment paper.
  5. Pour peanut butter fudge into your prepared pan, then transfer to the fridge to cool. If you want to speed up the process, you can also cool in the freezer.
  6. Once fudge is solid and firm (this usually takes several hours), cut it into bite-sized pieces, or whatever size you prefer.
  7. Store finished fudge in a lidded container in your freezer.

Things I Loved in July

Things I Loved in JulyHello there! I hope you’re enjoying your summer so far.

Things have been so so here. My health issues continue unabated. But we don’t need to talk about that now; there was quite enough of that last month. If you take them OUT of the equation, though, things are pretty good. 🙂

This is a great time of year for FOOD! My garden is booming. We live in a duplex right now and have a pretty small backyard, most of which is devoted to our garden.

Right now I’m growing tomatoes, summer squash/zucchini, yellow pole beans, cucumbers, and herbs: basil, mint, rosemary, oregano, sage, thyme and marjoram.…

Cinnamon Cashew Ice Cream

This cinnamon cashew ice cream is dairy-free and super creamy and delicious. It's also honey-sweetened and suitable for the GAPS and Paleo diets. Try this easy ice cream today!

The other day I felt like making ice cream. Since my chocolate cashew ice cream had been such a success, I figured I’d try making another batch of cashew ice cream. I started out trying to make vanilla, but that was just tasting sort of meh, so I threw in some cinnamon.

Oh man–that was definitely the right decision. This cinnamon cashew ice cream is so good! I know I say that about all of my ice cream recipes, but it’s still just as true. 🙂 (What can I say–we like ice cream! And I don’t post it here unless it’s really good.) I think my cinnamon coconut ice cream is amazing, too, but if you like cinnamon you definitely need to also give this one a try.…

How to Make Cashew Butter

Learn how to make cashew butter in this easy tutorial. Cashew butter is delicious and you'll save money by making it yourself at home!

Have you tried cashew butter? If you can’t or don’t eat peanut butter, cashew butter is a delicious replacement. It’s creamy and deliciously flavorful. I mostly use it to make these cashew butter chocolate chip cookies, but I also like it on apples or just straight off the spoon.

Making your own homemade cashew butter is really easy. It also much less expensive than buying pre-made cashew butter.

I make my homemade cashew butter with organic roasted cashews that I buy at Costco or Trader Joe’s. You can also make raw cashew butter, but I like the flavor of the roasted cashews so I haven’t tried that yet.…

Grass-fed Butter Mints

Add more healthy fats to your diet with these easy butter mints. Made with grass-fed butter, they're a delicious way to eat more nutrient-rich butter!

Grass-fed butter is a nutritional powerhouse. Experienced real foodies know what I’m talking about, but if you’re new to real food you should check out this post on why butter is good for you. I try to eat grass-fed butter every day, but sometimes my meals don’t particularly lend themselves to being topped with butter. As a result I’ve developed a few candy-like recipes for easily adding some butter to the end of a meal or snack. My newest creation is these grass-fed butter mints.

These butter mints are deliciously creamy, with a minty, almost caramel-like flavor. I love popping a couple of these after a low-fat meal or snack.…
