Quick, creamy, healthy, paleo fudge. Just because I eat clean and healthy and poo-poo refined sugar, food coloring, chemicals, etc. doesn’t mean that I can’t have something sweet and delicious.
I posted a great chocolate paleo fudge a while ago that turned out amazing but sometimes I’m not in the mood for chocolate. This fudge reminds me of a creamy peanut butter banana. I prefer almond butter to peanut butter any day. While the tastes are similar, peanuts don’t have the nutrition that almonds do.
This recipe only has 5 ingredients which is another reason I love these. If you read most labels at the store, the list of ingredients is a mile long and most of them I can’t even pronounce. I don’t want that in my body and you don’t have to either.
I made this batch in less than 10 minutes and put them in the freezer overnight. This morning I had delicious creamy almond butter banana fudge. I used my silicone mold but you can use any baking pan that has sides. Just make sure to line it with parchment paper so you can get the fudge out easily.
Keep them in the freezer because the coconut oil and honey melt very easily and quickly but won’t freeze. No thawing required, soft and creamy right out of the freezer.
I found this recipe a while ago but kept putting off making it for some reason. I’m seriously ticked that I have missed out on eating these for so long. They are so super fudgy, chocolatey, soft, creamy and melt in your mouth.
I was a little skeptical when I found this recipe which is probably why I put it off for so long but I figured since I had all of the ingredients in my kitchen already and the fact that a 10 year old could make them, why not just finally go for it. These are a close second to boiling water as far as being easy. Ready in 30 minutes too!
Did I mention there are only 5 ingredients? The only ingredient not included in the picture below is the vanilla. These are little fudgy fudge bites from heaven and bonus – they can be made vegan just by using maple syrup instead of raw honey.
I know, I know, it all sounds too good to be true. After you make them you’ll see why I was ticked off at not making them sooner.
If the little ones are going to be enjoying these (cause they will enjoy them), I recommend making the pieces bite size because they do melt in your hands pretty fast and it might get a little messy if you give them a big piece at one time. You’ll thank me for this little tip 🙂
