Soft, dense, peanut buttery fudge filled with the subtle sweetness of strawberry flavor. The classic combination of peanut butter and jelly comes together in these deliciously healthy protein fudge bars! Vegan, gluten-free, grain-free, and only 5 ingredients.
I’ve always been a fudge lover, but PEANUT BUTTER fudge has a special place in my heart. The first time I ever tried it was at a local candy store called Watson’s where my sister worked when she was a teenager. They had a special kind of peanut butter fudge there called ‘meltaway’ and it literally melted away in your mouth upon first bite. So smooth, rich, and delicious. Like the sweetest, creamiest peanut butter you’ve ever had in your life.
No other fudge (chocolate or otherwise!) has ever compared to that peanut butter meltaway fudge from my childhood. And to be honest, I am not sure I would want to try and recreate it! It was just that special. But that doesn’t mean I can’t make something equally as peanut butter-y and fudgy to enjoy on a daily basis.
Inspired by a few of my favorite kitchen staples, peanut flour and vegan protein powder (strawberry flavor for this recipe!), I thought it would be a fun to make a healthy, protein fudge. I even challenged myself to make it with as few ingredients as possible. Got it down to 5! Pretty good, eh?
These Peanut Butter & Jelly Protein Fudge Bars is INCREDIBLY easy to make and makes a for a great post workout snack since it’s so high in plant-based protein from both the protein powder and the peanut flour. A double dose of PLANT POWER!
Plus these bars are sweet and delicious without any added sugars or fats!
