Coconut Peanut Butter Walnut Fudge

This is a variation spun from the Coconut Pecan Cocoa Fudge. Once again, this fudge is full of healthy fats, contains no sugar or artificial sweeteners and no chocolate! (When I first posted this recipe, I accidentally included cocoa powder in the list of ingredients. That has now been removed.) I used peanut butter but feel free to use your favorite nut butter in equal parts. This recipe is a great way to get in some healthy coconut fats while having a bit of a sweet treat. Keep this in mind as something to have for the upcoming holidays.

As I mentioned last week, I’ve never been much of a fan of fudge because it’s just too sweet. I have to admit this fudge, made using 3 tablespoons of honey, is pretty darned sweet. I’d suggest if you are on GAPS (or just limit your intake of sweets) that you taste the mixture starting with less honey.  Start with a tablespoon or less and add more to your personal taste.

The texture for this recipe before chilling will be similar to frosting.  It will harden up very nicely in the refrigerator or freezer.

Instructions

  1. Lightly butter a small rectangular container, then place parchment paper (the parchment paper stays in place better when the dish is buttered).
  2. The coconut cream concentrate should be easy to stir, if not, warm gently on the stove top.
  3. Mix all items together, place on top of the parchment paper. The mixture will be thick. Use a spoon to spread the fudge into the container.
  4. Place in freezer for 15-30 minutes.
  5. This fudge must be kept chilled or frozen. It will melt at room temperature.
