This GAPS-friendly, dairy-free peanut butter chocolate freezer fudge is full of healthy fats, and is only sweetened with honey! It’s an easy to make, delicious treat the whole family will enjoy.
That parenting life.
Put peanut butter and chocolate together in anything and I’m there, baby. It’s probably my all-time favorite flavor combo. Add in the word fudge, and I’m all over it! Unfortunately, my kids are all over it, too. Which means that I usually have to share.
Even though I’m not really the fudge-sharing type, it is a healthy treat and I’m glad to serve those to my kiddos, so I sacrifice. Isn’t that what parenting is all about, really? Sacrificial love…
Anyway, back to the fudge.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Freezer Fudge
While this fudge does contain peanut butter, there’s no need you can’t enjoy it if you’re on a legume or peanut-free diet. You can use almond butter instead, if you want to make it paleo. Even sun butter would probably work, though I haven’t tried it myself yet.
As far as the sweeteners go, I’ve only ever used honey in this fudge, but I am sure maple syrup or agave would work if you want to make it vegan.
For the cocoa powder, I absolutely love Azure Standard’s fair-trade, organic cocoa powder. It makes every chocolate thing amazing, and I don’t have to feel badly using it, either! I also only use their coconut oil (it’s amazing), and I love their vanilla, too.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Freezer Fudge
Free of grain, gluten, eggs, dairy, and refined sugar.
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 1/4 cup honey (try maple syrup for vegan)
- 1/2 cup organic peanut butter (use almond butter for paleo)
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder (I love this organic fair-trade stuff!)
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional – I like to use my own homemade extract or this one)
Slowly melt the coconut oil until liquid, then stir in remaining ingredients until smooth.
Pour into a silicone pan or foil-lined loaf pan. You could also fill these fun little silicone candy molds.
Freeze for about 1/2 hour, or until firm.
Pop out, cut, and serve.
Down here in the south, things melt super fast, even when it’s not summer time! This fudge is no exception, so be sure to store it in the fridge if you don’t devour it all as soon as it’s set.

Oooh, I love the simplicity of this recipe! A “must share” on AllGlutenFreeDesserts.com for sure! 🙂 Plus a “must make” soon as well. 😉
Haha! Thanks, Shirley! 🙂
Thank you! I made this recipe but instead of coconut oil I used raw organic coconut butter. Quite tasty and I like the idea of the coconut flesh along with the coconut oil together and not just the oil. The spoon taste test was good, now just waiting for them to get out of freezer! I also just patted it into a layer in a square dish instead of ice cube tray. The mixture was firmer and didn’t pour.
I hope you like it, Laurie! I’m sure the coconut butter will be equally delicious!
I just turned them out onto a cutting board and cut them into squares! Easy peasy! And most importantly….DELICIOUS!! Try the recipe with the coconut butter, I think you’ll like them a lot! Thanks again for the recipe!
Yay! 🙂 So glad they turned out well for you! I’ll definitely keep the coconut butter sub in mind the next time I make them. 🙂
What a decadent looking dessert! Love how easy these are to make too!
Thanks! They are SUPER easy. 😉
Oh, I am thrilled about this wonderful recipe. Made it the other day and it was perfect. I will be saving this to also make during the holidays too! Thanks for fab instructions!
