Creamy, chewy and satisfying, this chocolate peanut butter fudge is made with only 5 ingredients and has no refined sugars. Clean eating at its best!
I’ve decided to begin a fun new series I’m calling Fitness Fridays. I know, original, right? Every Friday I will post a nutritious, clean eating recipe that doesn’t take like cardboard. 🙂 Today, I’m sharing a sanity-saving recipe with you. Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge is my hero. I have a feeling most of the recipes I’ll be sharing will be desserts. Because, you know-they are my favorite.
Several months ago, I joined an 8 week fitness challenge group to help kick myself into gear, and for the most part now we have been eating “clean.” Mostly. I still have one cheat day per week when I can eat whatever I want. But the other days of the week, I’m trying to focus on eating real food. That is, food that IS ingredients, not food that contains ingredients. The number one thing that is out of our diets (except on cheat day) is sugar. That leaves me with six days a week to combat the sweet cravings with healthier options. This recipe was posted in the Facebook group and I happily went about “testing” it to be sure it was palatable. I expected a dry, bitter “chocolate-like” substance, but I couldn’t have been more wrong. This chocolate peanut butter fudge is creamy, sweet and satisfying. Really. Take it from a non-crunchy, “eat all the things” sugar lover.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge
- 1/2 cup coconut oil melted
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Line a muffin tin with paper liners. (Either 12 regular cups or 24 mini cups)
- In a bowl, mix the melted oil and cocoa powder
- Add the peanut butter, honey and vanilla and stir until smooth
- Pour into muffin cups and place in the refrigerator. The cups will set within 5-10 minutes. Keep refrigerated or frozen
- Optional- top with sea salt, whole almonds or chopped nuts

This is super neat! I’ve made the chocolate with coconut oil and cocoa – using a stevia blend for sweetness, but never have I tried it with peanut butter – AND I shall!!
HINT: If you want it to taste more coconutty use the organic cold pressed oil, if you don’t want the coconut smell and taste, use the expeller pressed coconut oil!

Thanks for the oil tip! I tried Stevia the first time to make chocolate but I hated it. I don’t like the taste of Stevia at all. It has a strong aftertaste. I find I really prefer honey for natural sweetening. I’ve used maple syrup in a few things, but it has a definite strong flavor. I still need to try coconut palm sugar. I got some unsweetened coconut flakes for another recipe and they are tasty!
