I love being in the kitchen with my kids. They are big fans of peanut butter, just like I was when I was a kid – although I never grew out of this love. Since my kids eat peanut butter directly off the spoon (or from the jar with a finger – so be it), this recipe is right up their alley. This peanut butter fudge is creamy and sweet, and has a great bite to it when it is chilled – leaving teeth marks in your fudge as a sign of delicious accomplishment. Making this peanut butter fudge really is as simple as mixing all the ingredients together, pouring it into a pan, and popping it in the freezer. And an easy dessert is my type of dessert!
Gluten- and Dairy-Free Peanut Butter Banana Fudge Recipe
Makes approximately 2 dozen 1-inch pieces.
1. Mash the bananas until completely smooth. Mix in the Once Again Peanut Butter, coconut oil, Killer Bee Honey, and salt. Then stir in the coconut flakes.
2. Pour the batter into a silicone mold or freezer safe dish lined with aluminum foil or parchment paper (I used a 9x4 inch bread pan). Freeze for at least 4 hours.
3. Using the aluminum foil or parchment paper, remove the fudge from the pan and cut it into one inch squares with a sharp knife. Store in the freezer for up to two weeks.
My kids’ favorite part of this recipe was mashing up the banana. They had a hard time taking turns – no one wanted to share this fun and messy task. Once the banana was smooth, we stirred in some Once Again Peanut Butter, Once Again Killer Bee Honey, coconut oil, and flaked coconut. Both my kiddos wanted to put a pinch of salt in – good thing they have tiny fingers!
I really enjoy the flavor and texture of Once Again American Classic Creamy & No Stir Peanut Butter. It has just a few organic ingredients (all of which I can pronounce!), and I love that I can store it in the pantry, not the fridge. It tastes like natural peanut butter, which I love, but it is much easier to not have to store it in the already-packed fridge. No more tearing your fragile gluten-free bread apart when you try to spread cold peanut butter on top of the slice!
I love the flavor of peanut butter and honey together, which is probably one of the reasons I love this fudge so much. Once Again Killer Bee Honey is pure, raw, and organic, and is the perfect flavor compliment to the peanut butter. These really are the perfect ingredients together in this easy fudge recipe. Definitely do try this at home!
