  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (optional, to taste)

Instructions:

  1. Line a square or rectangular baking dish (8×8 inches works well) with parchment paper, leaving some overhang on the sides for easy removal.
  2. In a microwave-safe bowl or on the stovetop, melt the coconut oil and peanut butter together until smooth. If using a microwave, heat in 30-second intervals, stirring in between to prevent burning. If using the stovetop, melt over low heat while stirring constantly.
  3. Once the peanut butter and coconut oil are well combined and smooth, remove from heat and stir in the powdered erythritol (or stevia), vanilla extract, and salt (if using). Adjust the sweetener to your taste preference. Keep in mind that erythritol can have a cooling effect, so you may want to use less if you’re sensitive to that.
  4. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish and smooth the top with a spatula.
  5. Place the dish in the freezer and let it set for about 30-60 minutes, or until firm.
  6. Once the fudge is set, remove it from the freezer and use the parchment paper overhangs to lift it out of the dish.
  7. Place it on a cutting board and cut it into 16 equal-sized pieces.
  8. Store the Keto Peanut Butter Fudge in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer. It can get soft at room temperature, so it’s best kept cold.

Enjoy your delicious and keto-friendly peanut butter fudge as an occasional treat or a satisfying fat bomb!
