Best Low Carb Peanut Butter Fudge Recipe | All Day I Dream About Food

Want real old fashioned peanut butter fudge on your low carb diet? This is the recipe for you! Sweet and creamy and oh so fudgy. Perfect for your healthy sugar-free and keto lifestyle. I am about to voice a very strong opinion and it may not be a popular one. I apologize in advance if I offend but it simply needs to be said. If you disagree with me, I am okay with that. We may need to go our separate ways, though. I feel that strongly about the subject and I am willing to lose some friends over it. Are you ready? Hang on tight, because sparks are going to fly! Cream cheese aint got no business being in my fudge! There, I said it. Like it or lump it, I dont care. Just dont try to pass off your cream cheese concoctions as fudge, please. It might besome sort of delicious confection on its own but its not fudge and I am not fooled. Dont you remember your pre-low carb days when you walked into a fudge shop and watched them paddling the mixture, spreading it out on marble slabs and folding it over and over again until it began to hold together? Did you see any cream cheese in there? Nope, me neither. Because it doesnt belong. When I started low carb, back in the day, I did try my hand at this cream cheese fudge stuff. And while it was okay, it never really suited my palate. It wasnt fudgy enough and it had a distinct tangy cream cheese (or cheesecake) taste. While I love cheesecake in and of itself, its not the same thing as fudge and nor should it be. Real fudge comes from boiling milk and a lot of sugar together until it reaches the soft ball stage. Thats tough to do with low carb ingredients, in part because low carb sweeteners dont behave the same way as sugar. So people add in things like cream cheese to give it the proper consistency and structure. But it just doesnt t Continue reading >>

Low Carb Peanut Butter Fudge

Low Carb Peanut Butter Fudge

This rich and creamy low carb peanut butter fudge tastes just like the kind Grandma used to make. Except Grandma wasnt on a low carb diet and hers would send your blood sugars soaring. Sorry, Grandma, theres a new fudge in town. 1 1/2 cup powdered Swerve Sweetener (or other powdered erythritol) Line a 9x5 inch loaf pan with parchment paper. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, bring the butter and cream to a boil. Boil 2 minutes. Remove from heat and add the peanut butter and vanilla extract. Transfer to a large bowl. Beat in the powdered sweetener 1/2 cup at a time. The mixture will begin to separate and become clumpy, thats okay. Use a rubber spatula to paddle" the mixture together again, pressing it into the bowl and lifting, pressing and lifting. Sift the peanut flour over and continue to paddle until well combined. It should have the consistency of dough and not be liquid at all. Press the mixture evenly into the prepared loaf pan and refrigerate until set, at least 1 hour. Remove the parchment paper by the edges and cut the fudge into small squares. Please note that erythritol contains carbs but studies show that for most people, those carbs dont affect blood sugar. If you need to count the total carbs, please add 20g erythritol. Copyright 2009-2016 Diabetes Media Foundation, All Rights Reserved.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge

Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge

Author:Sensational Stevia Desserts By Lisa Jobs A low carb, low sugar version of a perennial favorite. 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut in small pieces *You can use carob chips instead of chocolate chips. Before placing peanut butter in measuring cup, spray cup with vegetable/canola oil spray so it comes out easier and doesnt stick to the inside of the cup. ** You may need to melt the chocolate for as long as 2 minutes and 20 seconds. Watch carefully, you dont want it to burn! **This stevia measurement is the minimum to use in the recipe. Since your sweetness preference and brand used may vary, you may need to increase accordingly. Measure cup boiling water and add stevia. Mix until dissolved. Add the butter and stir until most of it is melted. Pour in a mixing bowl and add the dry milk. Mix until blended. Place chocolate chips and peanut butter in a microwave-safe bowl and cover. Melt chocolate chips and peanut butter in microwave for a minimum of 2 minutes.** Stir well and microwave another 30 seconds or until the mixture is melted and smooth when stirred. Add butter/milk mixture to peanut butter/chocolate and blend well with electric mixer or by hand. Add remaining 1 teaspoon vanilla and stir thoroughly. Foil line an 8" square pan and place fudge in it. Flatten top with knife or wooden spoon. Cover and refrigerate for about 1 hour. Cut into squares. Keep refrigerated. Lisas Note: If you use carob chips, reduce your microwave time by 30 seconds (1 min. 30 seconds first) and then microwave in 5 to 10 second increments if carob chips are not melted since they melt faster than chocolate chips.

Healthy Peanut Butter Fudge Low Sugar For Diabetics

Healthy Peanut Butter Fudge Low Sugar For Diabetics

A healthy peanut butter fudge thatslowsugarand safe for diabetics. Its sweetened with a mix of natural based low carb sweeteners. Today is the first day of my holiday vacation from work. I dont have to go back until the first Monday of the new year. I have a pile of recipes that Im been gathering that Id like to try during my time off. Since the holiday treats are usually what is hardest on a diet, I will be making some low carb snacks and desserts to keep me away from the sugar. This morning I made a modified version of Jennifer Eloffs healthy peanut butter fudge recipe. She used a mix of Splenda and erythritol for the sweetener. I chose to use a combination of xylitol and stevia . I know that some people are sensitive to xylitol, but my erythritol is running low and Ive got a big jar of xylitol that Ive barely used. So, I decided to use xylitol in the recipe. Im sure erythritol would work fine in this fudge. But, Ive been hesitant to use it for certain recipes that need to be refrigerated, especially those with chocolate. I havent figured out how to keep the erythritol from crystallizing when its used for fairly sweet recipes like fudge. Xylitol has been found to be toxic to pets so if you are using it, be sure the dog cant get to it. The other thing I changed in this lowsugarhealthy peanut butter fudgewas to use unsweetened almond milk instead of cream and water. Almond milk has fewer carbs which is why I prefer it over cream. It also has a nice flavor and I like the taste a little bit more than coconut milk. I will be having Christmas dinner over my sisters house. This is the snack that I will be bringing to keep me away from the holiday candies. Im sure my other family members will enjoy it too.

Its sugar free and just 1.5g carbs a square! | LowCarbYum.com width=683 height=1024 /> I posted a peanut butter fudge recipe on the Low Carb Yum Facebook page last week that was a big disappointment. The blogger had removed the full recipe as its now in her cookbook. She did leave the ingredient list so you might be able to figure it out. However, why risk it?

3 Ingredient Sugar-free Peanut Butter Fudge

3 Ingredient Sugar-free Peanut Butter Fudge

This Easy, 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Fudge is low carb, sugar free and dairy free! If I could eat peanut butter and chocolate every day I most certainly would. I don’t, but I’d love to be able to be…… you know that girl…….eat whatever she desires, doesn’t exercise, stays perfectly tiny, has a few babies, slims down without even trying……yeah, you have someone in your life like that just as we all do, am I right? I’ve never been blessed to have a skinny frame. I’ve never been able to eat whatever I’ve wanted to without consequences. I’ve had to work off every.single.pound of pregnancy weight. 3 times. Oh before babies I was able to lose weight effortlessly. I remember being fed up at 22. Being overweight and unhappy. Hating living in my own skin. I had just graduated college. I weighed 159 pounds on my 5 foot 2 and 1/2 inch frame. I was ready and I went for it for the first time with a healthy life style change. I exercised and ate nothing in between meals. I could still eat whatever I wanted, sugar included and in 6 months I was down to 124 pounds. But I was also 22. I am maintained that weight for 7 years before the first baby. That was then, this is now. And being 43, it’s a lot harder to lose without a concentrated effort. And has time has gone on, I’ve come to realize the things that worked to lose weight after my 3rd baby 9 years are not helping me working for me now. Bodies do change over time. I’ve come to the conclusion my body at this age needs a whole lot less carbs to see the scale move where I want it. That’s where this recipe comes in. If I’m cutting carbs to lose weight I need healthy fats to keep me satiated so I don’t turn to carbs. Hence, comes in the FAT BOMBS! Just a small piece is enough to make you feel satisfie Continue reading >>

2 Ingredient Peanut Butter Fudge {thm-s, Low Carb, Sugar Free}

2 Ingredient Peanut Butter Fudge {thm-s, Low Carb, Sugar Free}

2 Ingredient Peanut Butter Fudge {THM-S, Low Carb, Sugar Free} Sweet and creamy fudge bursting with peanut butter flavor. With only two ingredients, this recipe will get you out of the kitchen and spending time with your family! I mentioned in a previous post that fudgewas a special Christmas time tradition at our house. Growing up, our neighbor would bring us beautiful little Christmas tins filled with two different kinds of fudge chocolate and peanut butter. Back then, I would have been hard pressed to say which flavor was my favorite, but now I would definitely say peanut butter! My 2 Ingredient Fudge has been such a popular post, that I knew I needed to have a peanut butter option as well! I giggle a little bit, because really it may be a stretch to even call this a separate recipe! However, several people have been asking for it, so here it is. All you need is one batch of my 3 Ingredient Sweetened Condensed Milk and 1/2 cup natural peanut butter. Really! How much easier can it get? (Please note that the 3 Ingredient Sweetened Condensed milk is sugar free and low carb.) I understand that this recipe is 2 ingredient ONLY if you already have the condensed milk already made. But really, you should always have a jar of that in your fridge! That sweetened condensed milk recipe has been life changing for me! (Well, . . . that may be a bit of a stretch, but it is REALLY good!) This fudge is a little more of a soft set than the chocolate variety, but I think it is much more creamy. I would never be ashamed to take this to a party or give it away as a gift! I put the fudge in the freezer (or on my front porch) to harden initially, but I usually store it in the refrigerator. You dont even want to knowhow many pieces I ate while I was photographing this post! I even had a pi Continue reading >>

Low Carb Peanut Butter Fudge Recipe

Low Carb Peanut Butter Fudge Recipe

Ahhh fudge, yes FUDGE! This fudge is merely 1.5 net carbs and 3 Weight Watchers points per chunk of heaven. It is a very easy recipe to make but be careful not to overindulge. You can make this recipe with either unsalted butter or hard margarine. There is a common misconception that margarine is one molecule away from plastic. This my friends is simply not true. *Plastic is a polymer, made up of a long chain of repeated smaller molecules. Plastics are usually made from crude oil and natural gas, but can be made from natural materials such as wood, corn, plants, and even sugars. In fact, one of the earliest plastics made in the 1800s was from milk. Yes, plastic and margarine can be made from vegetable oil, that is where any similarity ends. The claim is nonsensical adding one molecule to margarine wont turn it into plastic. Even if it were true, its worth considering that one molecule can make a world of difference. Many natural substances are very similar in chemical composition but very different in appearance and effect. One molecule, and more importantly how the molecules are arranged, makes a huge difference to the end product. Take for example the difference between hydrogen peroxide and water, which have only one atom difference.* Nutritionally, butter and margarine are very similar. Some of the distinct differences is 1 cup of butter has 488mg of cholesterol and margarine 0mg. Also, butter has 54.5mg of potassium (heart friendly) and margarine has 86.3mg per cup. Personally I prefer to bake with butter primarily due to taste but will not hesitate to use margarine when in a pinch. Continue reading >>
