Peach. Pie. Fudge.
Need I say more?
Didn’t think so, but I will anyways! I was thinking it has been far too long since my last fudge post (you may remember the oh so delicious Eatmore Fudge Squares) which was extremely popular, so it was time for another one! This fudge is totally different yet equally as amazing!
This time, I used peaches, coconut oil, and almond butter as the main components. Healthy fats and fruit sugars make this fudge incredibly rich and subtly sweet, with a side of “o.m.g.” .
Yep, the word orgasmic comes to mind; this fudge is seriously as good as se…well… I’ll keep this post PG…;)
A friend of mine shared this fudge recipe on my Facebook page, and I had already been planning something desserty and peach-related, so when the shared post and my idea collided in my mind, this wonderfully bissful Peach Pie Fudge was born.
Now, I reaaaallly want to say this fudge is “healthy”, because it’s made of whole, natural, unrefined ingredients, all with their own health benefits. When combined together, they should technically make a “healthy fudge” right?! Right!
The only little drawback note is that this fudge should be enjoyed in moderation… yes, there I go with that word again. The only reason I say this is because, well, eating half the batch (which is very tempting to do) would cost you quite a few daily calories.
So, be forewarned, these are healthy and wholesome, but … don’t go eat half the batch in one sitting!
Like most of the recipes I post, this one too is easy, quick, and requires minimal ingredients!
You need a bowl, saucepan, a food processor or blender, and you can use whatever kind of container or mold you like! I used my silpat muffin mold, and you could easily use a cake pan, brownie pan, or muffin tin. You could make these into squares or little cups (or mini pies, if you will) like I did!
I divided the recipe into 8 servings because when I finished making it, that seemed like a good portion for a treat – and this brought each serving of fudge in at 140 calories – so, really, not bad for fudge that is this amazingly delicious.
Another great aspect is that there’s only 5 grams of sugar per serving – and that’s unrefined sugar too of course! The majority of the calories comes from fats – which are good, healthy fats coming from the almond butter and coconut oil!
So go, all you wonderful Nutritionist in the Kitch fans, and make this fudge! And pin it and share it with all your friends, and make this world just a tiny bit lovelier!
