Freezer Fudge!

I love peanut butter. On a spoon, in a protein shake, in a cookie, in a brownie….you get the picture. This time, I added it to a bunch of other tastey ingredients to make what I call freezer fudge.

So what kind of peanut butter should you choose? You definitely don’t have to take my word for it, but I choose organic in an effort to avoid GMOs. Peanuts are one of the most genetically modified crops out there, so by choosing organic, you’re likely avoiding GMOs in your peanut butter. I usually pick up the kind that we grind fresh in our store, so that it is made from raw organic peanuts and nothing else – that’s right, no salt or sugar in there!

So, let’s talk fudge…

Peanut Butter Chocolate Fudgefudge2

1/2 cup organic peanut butter (or any nut butter)
1/4 cup honey, raw
1/4 cup chocolate chips
1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
1/2 cup coconut oil
3 tbsp shredded coconut, unsweetened

In a small saucepan, melt coconut oil over low to medium heat. Add the peanut butter and stir until smooth, then add the chocolate chips and stir until smooth. Now, add the honey and vanilla extract and stir. Add coconut and stir.

In a small glass dish or bread pan, pour the fudge. Freeze for 1-2 hours until hardened. Once you’re ready to eat it, just cut it into square with a knife. Enjoy!

I love dessert of any kind, especially those made with peanut butter!

1 cup natural or organic creamy peanut butter
⅓ cup honey
1 whole egg
¼ teaspoon sea salt (Omit if your peanut butter is already salted)
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ cup dark chocolate chips

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350F and grease an 8″ square pan with coconut oil or use parchment paper.

In a small mixing bowl, mix the peanut butter, honey, egg, salt and baking soda until well combined, then add the chocolate chips.

Pour the batter into the greased pan, and use a spatula to smooth the top. Bake at for 20-25 minutes, or until the top is a light golden brown. Let cool, then cut into squares. Enjoy!
