peanut butter fudge
This creamy fudge is the perfect summer snack or dessert. Delicious and satisfying, quick and easy to make, and keeps well in the fridge for long periods of time – winner! Make a batch to have on hand for when guests are coming over or for when you feel like a satisfying sweet treat! Like most of my recipes in my eBook- Hearty Vegan Thermo Cooked, this recipe is dairy free, egg free, refined sugar free and gluten free but yet still very satisfying! And unlike most sugary sweets, you’ll be satisfied after just one square. Enjoy!

60g desiccated unsweetened coconut
60g coconut oil
130g natural peanut butter
40g maple syrup
Pinch fine sea salt
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Crushed peanuts (optional)
Coconut flakes (optional)
Line a 25cm x 10cm tin with baking paper. Set aside.
Place desiccated coconut into TC bowl and blend for 20 seconds, speed 9. Scrape down sides.
Add coconut oil and melt for 3 minutes, 60C, speed 2.
Add peanut butter, maple syrup, salt and vanilla extract. Mix for 1 minute, 50C, speed 2.
Transfer mixture to lined loaf pan and spread into an even layer. Sprinkle crushed peanuts and coconut flakes on top if using - these will sink in but that’s okay. Refrigerate for a minimum 4 hours.
Slice into squares and enjoy. Serve straight from the fridge.
