OMG! I found a Paleo-Gluten Free-Dairy Free Peanut Butter Fudge.

Ok guys!    I found nirvana!

Ok as close to it as I possible can that is for sure.

I was browsing my Facebook feed and this microwave Peanut Butter Fudge recipe kept popping up… I LOVE PB!    The recipe however wouldn’t have loved me .. it included half and half along with a pound of butter and a cup of sugar.   “AVOID”  was stamped on it.   This got me thinking there must be someone out their that has made a healthier version something to curb my sweet tooth – GOOGLE here I come.  Then I found it hidden amongst all the links.  Quick Peanut Butter Freezer Fudge on the Detoxinista.com web page.

The picture had me.    I ran home  and tried it but discovered I didn’t quite have the right ingredients.   So I improvised just a tad – with Jiff Naturals and Coconut Butter / Coconut Oil mix.

So check out the original recipe and the yummy photo…

this is my spin on the original recipe  Quick Peanut Butter Freezer Fudge by the Detoxinista.com  – I did (doubled the recipe)

Takes about 5 minutes to make once you have everything assembled.
Key Items
  • 1 cup peanut butter – I used Jiffy Naturals
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, softened
  • 1 used Artisana Coconut Butter (Soften) –  about 1.2 oz
  • 2 tablespoon raw honey – I used Dark
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2  teaspoon fine sea salt – I used Celtic Sea Salt – I am thinking I could have used a little more
How to make it
  1. Mix everything together making sure that the coconut oil and butter mix until smooth.  I put the glass bowl I was making it in over a pain of hot water to make sure everything incorporated.  A microwave would work but  I don’t own one.
  2. Pour on to parchment paper in a container –  You want the “fudge to be about 1/2 of inch or so.   I poured mine on to a small dinner plate that has a little bit of a well.
  3. Put this in the freezer until it firms up – about 15-30 minutes.  It will depend on your freezer and thickness of the fudge in your container.
  4. Once it’s firm enjoy –  the fudge like quality is obtain when the oil/butter freezes… so EAT it right out the freezer!
  5. If you have some left remember to store in the freezer. 
ENJOY!   I promise to take a picture next time.   I also plan to experiment by adding some crunch.   If you like dark chocolate I image you can add a layer of it to the top and have some very awesome Paleo Peanut Butter Cups… but I am chocolate free at least until 4/10/14!

Minor hiccup

The CrazyGirls — started the plank challenge on Friday night.  We were excited.  Saturday came along — more precisely Saturday morning at the horse barn came along.    Grooming 6 horses, running around an arena with one of the horses, getting a hoof on the foot (with a blood blister) and putting your back out –  kind of put a damper on Saturday and Sunday plank Challenge!!!   So – we are restarting it today! 

Toe be darned!

We are also starting our new healthy diet plan.  We are starting off simple.  Eliminating carbs that don’t come naturally in food.    We are also eliminating starchy grains with the exception of oats for breakfast!  We are also not eating anything processed or white… no rice, pasta or breads.

Start small and aim big.
