Healthy Peanut Butter Fudge
This Healthy Peanut Butter Fudge is just like regular fudge — super rich, uber decadent and tooth-achingly sweet — but it’s secretly healthy and guilt-free! Yup, that means no three sticks of butter, no four cups of sugar and no heavy splashes of corn syrup or heavy cream… just pure, fudgy peanut buttery goodness.
This Healthy Peanut Butter Fudge is dense, thick, and packed with that cuddly cozy peanut butter richness. Each piece of fudge is just as comforting as a spoonful of peanut butter right out of the jar. We’ve alllll been there. You know what I’m talking about 😉
Another good thing about this fudge is that it doesn’t have that annoying stick-to-the-roof-of-your-mouth kind of texture. Some people like that but I hate it. Oh goodness, this fudge is heaven. BIG taste, mini package. But it’s not as sinful as it looks and tastes. Not to mention, it’s SO. DARN. EASY.
It’s made entirely in a food processor, which is fast, easy, and super convenient. Just dump all the ingredients inside, blend, and BAM… it’s all smooth and even.
One BIG shocker here is that I was actually perfectly satisfied with just a few pieces of fudge… I didn’t feel totally out of control and like I wanted to plow through the entire pan. That’s probably because it’s full of filling protein and fiber, and doesn’t have any addictive sugar. Despite how freaking delicious it is, I was perfectly happy with just a few pieces at a time.

This Healthy Peanut Butter Fudge is just like regular fudge — rich, decadent, and sweet — but it’s secretly healthy with only 35 calories a piece and 1g of fat, plus 4.5g of protein! No need for the butter, sugar, or corn syrup!
Line an 8×8” brownie pan with parchment paper both ways.
In a food processor, add all of the ingredients. Blend until smooth. Scrape down the sides of the bowl if necessary. Scoop the mixture into the prepared pan and spread it out.
Cover the pan with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. The next day, slice the fudge into 36 cubes. Serve immediately, or store in a tightly sealed container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
I originally wasn't going to share the recipe here because I worked so incredibly hard on publishing Naughty or Nice. But I wanted to provide it here because that way, you can determine whether or not the cookbook is for you!
