No-Bake Peanut Butter Fudge

While I began venturing into the vegan lifestyle, I thought frequently: “What about fudge? Will I be able to have a piece without the butter and heavy creams.” The answer is, of course, yes. And the best part about this fudge is that it is super duper healthy.

Being pregnant has only put my sweet tooth into overdrive and this is the perfect way to satisfy it.

I tried 2 different versions- one with apple sauce and the other with a banana. If you decide on the banana, it will have a slight banana taste, and the same with the apple if you choose the apple sauce. Both taste very good, but different. I personally like the apple sauce version best.

For the sweetener, I used maple syrup, but next time I am going to make a date paste and see how that pans out.

Does this fudge deliver?

Enjoy this creamy and tasty alternative to conventional fudge!

Peanut Butter Fudge

  • 1/2 cup of coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup raw chocolate powder
  • 1 cup of peanut butter or any nut butter
  • 1/2 cup of unsweetened apple sauce or 1/2 a banana
  • 1/4 cup – 1/2 cup of sweetener (honey, agave, or maple syrup), depending on your sweet tooth-
  • 1 tsp of vanilla flavour
  1. Combine all the ingredients in a food processor until smooth.
  2. Pour the mixture into a glass pan, and place in the freezer for about an hour to firm up.
  3. Once firm, cut into squares. You can either put the fudge back in the freezer or simply leave it in the fridge. Both ways taste yummy.

    Hello :) I happen to have almond butter in front of me that I was contemplating how to use it-sooo making this easy fudge this weekend!

    Oooohhhhhh … peanut butter. That’s all you had to say to get me. I’d forgo chocolate and almost any other “sweet” for peanut butter. This recipe looks fabulous! Bookmarking it … and trying it! thanks for sharing! :-)

    My first summer job was making fudge and candy at an amusement park. I don’t remember using dairy in any of the fudge we made. We use 3 different types of sugar and I think one of them was a big ol’ bucket of HFCS! After making it, wearing it, and smelling like it all summer long to this day, I eat maybe one piece of fudge a year.

      I don’t eat much fudge but this pregnancy thing is making mw want to eat things I don’t normally eat! I thinking sometimes they put heavy cream. :)

    This looks great! Definitely going to save this for the holidays. Does it go soft quickly when it is out of the fridge?

    I would love it if you would share this recipe on my new blog hop Simple Meals Friday. I know my readers would too! Thanks so much.

    Easy to go vegan with chocolate! I was a chocolatier for several years and made my truffles with non-gmo soy creamer and local honey, which I’m sure would work equally well for your fudge. BTW – YUM :)

    (note – for those who have issues with honey, you can use agave, but I personally think it’s less offensive to use local honey than truck in agave from Mexico)

    Thanks so much for sharing! I’m making these tonight for sure.
    Because of sinus issues I’ve been having, I’ve been advised to temporarily cut out grains, dairy, and sugar. I’ve never had any dietary restrictions before, so I sometimes feel lost on what I should make, LOL! :)

      YAY! If you don’t like a strong banana taste don’t use bananas. I prefer the apple sauce! Let me know how you like it!
