What would life be without peanut butter hey? It’s been nature’s butter for an eternity and we just keep finding new ways to make delicious foods with it, including this insane treat… Peanut Butter Fudge. This is the type of raw treat that will teach you that you only need a small amount to get your hit.

The combination of peanuts and coconut oil make for a creamy fudge, with a stack of monounsaturated fats made for balancing blood glucose, helping manage both the LDL and HDL cholesterol synthesis in our bodies, contributing that gorgeous glow in our skin and encouraging our body to use fat as a source of energy. All great positives right?

And whilst both peanut butter and coconut oil have saturated fats too, they’re good, unprocessed saturated fats that can improve our health. Don’t be fearful of the fat factor, it’s leaps and bounds more beneficial to our bodies than sugar and just a small portion of this fudge will absolutely satisfy any craving or need for a delicious pick me up.
