Treat yourself to this rich and creamy peanut butter protein fudge! Filled with wholesome ingredients and prepared in minutes, it’s a healthy sweet just in time for Halloween!
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! 🙂
- ½ cup creamy peanut butter
- ¼ cup pure maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
- ½ cup protein powder
- In a saucepan over low heat, stir the peanut butter, syrup, and oil together until smooth.
- 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!
- Pour into candy molds or a small container (I used a couple of mini loaf pans) and freeze until set before slicing.
- Keep stored in the freezer.
