Hey everyone! It’s the first freaking day of Spring and I’m back at it, sharing another incredibly easy recipe with you. 4 Ingredient Paleo “Peanut Butter” Fudge! It’s easy, uses ingredients you probably already have (or at least have easy access to), and tastes fantastic!
I feel like I’ve just been killing it in the kitchen lately. I mean, the majority of my meals are still crazy simple and mundane, but I have a slew of new recipes to share with y’all and I’m really excited about that. I’ve already shared a few! I don’t know if you’ve noticed the pattern, but I share one recipe a week. I have a pretty safe back-log so I can continue to post when life is stressful or I’m struggling with recipe inspiration.
Eventually, when I finally get myself to post more than just recipes, I’ll probably post one recipe and one non-food post a week. Or something like that. I just don’t like feeling chained to a schedule, so I’m not making a post schedule at this point in time. Deal with it.
A few amazing things are happening soon. I’m going on a much-needed vacation next week. I plan on writing up a post about the kind of spontaneous trips my partner and I take and all the fantastic things that happened on that trip. While I’m gone, I’ll have a post scheduled to publish so you won’t even miss me! I’ll also be sending out my monthly newsletter either before or during the trip, so make sure you sign up if you haven’t yet and watch your inbox!
On to the Fudge
This recipe is simple and delicious. I’ve slowly moved away from making a bunch of paleo desserts all the time. I mean, let’s face it. Recreating and constantly eating succulent desserts isn’t healthy. My reason for eating the way I do is for my overall health. I like nutrient-dense meals. That said, I still enjoy eating treats from time to time. But I’m much less likely to spend my grocery dollars on nut flours and things like that, so lately my treats are created from things I do have on hand all the time.
There are many, many reasons why I like this fudge.
- It’s really easy to make. Like, 5 minutes and you’re done.
- It does taste sorta like peanut butter, and I used to be a huge peanut butter fiend.
- Only 4 ingredients, and they’re always on hand.
- It’s fudge. Duh.
I feel it’s essential to say that while those quotation marks in the title should be a cue that this doesn’t contain peanut butter, you should know that this fudge doesn’t actually contain peanut butter. I don’t want you to feel cheated. But, somehow, sunflower seed butter is reminiscent of unsweetened peanut butter, so it’s kind of an okay replacement. Let’s face it: it’s not exactly like peanut butter. But peanuts aren’t paleo (they’re legumes). And we’re just going to have to live with that.
If you have trouble finding sunflower seed butter or don’t want to spend money on it, you can simply make your own by blending sunflower seeds until smooth.Print
- If needed, melt coconut oil. You can do this by immersing the container in hot water, microwaving it, or whatever your favorite method may be.
- Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Whisk for 2-3 minutes until completely mixed.
- Pour the mixture into a parchment paper-lined loaf pan or silicon molds. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Keep in the fridge and eat cold. They keep for weeks!
