When you are looking for a simple peanut butter dessert, you can't really get any easier than this Clean Eating Peanut Butter Fudge recipe.
It's made with only 4 clean ingredients and takes less than 5 minutes to prepare. The hardest part is waiting for it to harden in the freezer.
A traditional peanut butter fudge recipe can contain unhealthy ingredients:
Typical S.A.D. (Standard American Diet) Peanut Butter Fudge Ingredients:
Ingredients: 1/2 cup butter, 2 1/4 cup brown sugar, 3/4 cup peanut butter, 3 1/2 cups confectioners sugar
That's -a lot- of refined sugar and you have to heat it, boil it and mix it with a mixer to prepare it.
This healthier version uses a natural sweetener, one bowl and about 5 minutes of your time.
You can even dress it up with some raw cacao drizzle on top!
And, it's vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free and contains no refined sugar.
