HealthyCoconut Oil Peanut Butter Fudge(my version)

cindy sandberg Recipe

By cindy sandberg cindyLs

You can find the recipe for coconut oil peanut butter fudge all over the web. I've made it and I like it. But...I thought I could improve on it! My version is still healthy and very low in sugar, but I think it tastes better than the standard version. I've added a little butter and a little raw sugar to give it more of a traditional taste. I think it's yummy and the kiddos love it! If you're looking for ways to get more healthful coconut oil into your diet, give this a try!

melt butter in saucepan and add sugar and syrup or honey. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and boil gently for about 2 min. Remove from heat and stir in coconut oil and vanilla. Add peanut butter and blend well. (You may want to use a food processor or immersion blender to get the ingredients to really come together. Otherwise just whisk the living daylights out of it!) Pour into a buttered 8x8 pan and place in refrigerator until set up. Cut in small squares. Store in fridge.

*The best option is extra virgin coconut oil. However, your fudge will have a coconut-y taste if you use it. If that's a problem for you, you can use a more refined oil like Spectrum or Luanna that have a more neutral taste.
