Peanut Butter Protein Fudge

The decorations and costumes are great, and the movies are fun (I still try to watch Hocus Pocus every year), but the best part of Halloween is obviously the candy. As a kid, I knew exactly which houses gave out the best stuff– the people who bought king-size chocolate bars deserved sainthood– and I’d carefully ration out my haul so it would last until Christmas.

I’ve always had a weakness for sweets and candy, but I also have a sensitivity to sugar. I was never going to let a little thing like that get in the way of my sweet tooth, though– I just learned to get a bit creative!

This peanut butter protein fudge is delicious and made with only a handful of good, simple ingredients. Sweetened with pure maple syrup and packed with protein, it’s a responsibly grown-up treat that tastes as good as the sinful stuff. I  like to have something sweet after a meal, and these are perfect: small but satisfying, they make a lovely little mini dessert and I always like to have a batch ready in the freezer for when I need a fix. Of course, I’m going to treat myself to a few extra today– Happy Halloween! 🙂

 


Peanut Butter Protein Fudge

Yield: 16-20 pieces

Ingredients

  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • ½ cup protein powder

Instructions

  1. In a saucepan over low heat, stir the peanut butter, syrup, and oil together until smooth.
  2. Add the protein powder and stir until no lumps remain. I used vanilla powder for these pictures, but I love this recipe with chocolate, too!
  3. Pour into candy molds or a small container (I used a couple of mini loaf pans) and freeze until set before slicing.
  4. Keep stored in the freezer.

    Hi Courtney,
    Yum! Peanut butter fudge was always one of my favorite candies at Christmas – which my Mom would make every year. I love your 4 ingredient healthy recipes. Sounds so easy to make and delicious. Thanks for sharing on Real Food Fridays. Pinned & tweeted!

    You’d ration your candy till Christmas!? Wow you have willpower. I’d get sick that day from eating 25 peanut butter cups lol.

    Your fudge looks amazing, I’d stuff myself with that too!

    Thanks so much for linking up with us for Healthy Vegan Fridays! I’m Pinning and sharing!

    “and I’d carefully ration out my haul so it would last until Christmas.” Wow! Such self control girl!
    I think most people actually have a sensitivity to sugar, but just don’t realize it. I used to eat a ton myself, I didn’t realize I was sensitive until I backed off of it a bit.
    I love this simple sounding fudge. A perfect sweet treat without going overboard.
