A few years ago, while on a beach vacation in Delaware, I walked into a little candy shop along the boardwalk selling homemade fudge in enticing flavors such as Chocolate Pecan, Sea Salt Caramel, Toasted Coconut, Pumpkin Walnut, and Classic Peanut Butter.
It would have been impossible for any person to come out of that shop not craving fudge, and as soon as the trip ended I turned my apartment into its own fudge factory by making my own homemade healthy peanut butter fudge.
The original plan had been to try out other flavors too, but the peanut butter ended up being so good that I never even got that far!
What would be your dream fudge flavor?
Chocolate Banana Bread? Caramel Popcorn Fudge? Maple French Toast? York Peppermint Patty? Sugar Cookie Dough? Chocolate Chip Sea Salt Fudge?

Healthy Peanut Butter Fudge
- 1/2 cup peanut butter or allergy-friendly sub
- 1 overripe banana OR 2/3 cup coconut butter
- optional 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/16 tsp salt, or more to taste if using unsalted peanut butter
- 2 tbsp coconut butter OR melted virgin coconut oil (For coconut-free, try these Keto Brownie Bombs)
- pinch uncut stevia OR 2 tbsp powdered sugar or pure maple syrup
If peanut butter is not stir-able, gently heat until you are able to easily stir it. Either combine all ingredients in a small blender until completely smooth, OR mash the banana and stir together ingredients very patiently by hand until completely smooth. Scoop into a small plastic container OR parchment-lined glass container OR candy molds OR mini cupcake liners. (You have options!) Freeze until firm. Due to the melty nature of coconut, this fudge is best stored in the freezer.
