My family loves this guilt-free fudge, which has just six natural ingredients and takes about ten minutes of active time to prepare. It has a gooey-soft texture and tastes perfectly of peanut butter. The sweetness comes from banana and a small amount of maple syrup. Combining peanut butter with coconut oil gives it a fudge-like consistency. Then there’s just a little vanilla and salt for a flavor boost.
Chocolate Covered Katie is a great site for healthier ways to satisfy your sweet tooth. She has options for tailoring this recipe. I only present the way I make it since that’s the only version of the recipe for which I can vouch. I know the frozen banana in the photo looks gross. Frozen bananas always look gross, but they still taste good in recipes. Whenever I end up with a banana going soft before I can eat it, I slice it up and freeze. Then they can be used later for frozen banana ice cream or this fudge.
Do you freeze bananas? How do you use them? Share in the comments.
Easy no-guilt peanut butter fudge
Recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie
1/2 cup peanut butter (110g)
1 large banana (150g), sliced
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/16 teaspoon salt (I used salted peanut butter)
2 tablespoons melted coconut oil (20g)
2 tablespoons maple syrup
Line an 8 inch x 8 inch baking dish or something similar with parchment paper. The exact size and shape isn't important. Combine all ingredients with a blender, food processor, or mixer until completely smooth (or mash the banana and patiently stir together ingredients by hand). Scoop into your parchment lined container. Spread the fudge into a thin even layer. Freeze until firm, about two hours. Slice into pieces (a pizza cutter works nicely) and serve. Due to the tendency of coconut oil to melt, this fudge is best stored in the freezer.
