Healthy Peach and Pistachio Fudge

freshpeachfudge30

For a while now, I have wanted to use fresh peaches and pistachios together in a recipe. I thought about making cookies. I ended up making this Healthy Peach and Pistachio Fudge.

When coconut oil became popular, I quickly started using it in my baking, but this is my first time using coconut butter. I thought that coconut butter had a similar consistency to natural peanut butter. Here is a good explanation on the difference between Coconut Oil and Coconut Butter.

I used a small amount of maple syrup to sweeten this fudge. I don’t think you need it though. The peaches and the coconut butter are both naturally sweet. This recipe was a big hit with my kiddos and husband. Both of my boys are small for their age, so I like to give them lots of good healthy fat.

This fudge was so easy to make. I should have made it sooner. If you like this recipe, you might want to try my 3 Ingredient Healthy Freezer Fudge or my Healthy Peach and Almond Milkshake

Healthy Peach and Pistachio Fudge

Ingredients
1 cup of coconut butter
1 cup of sliced peaches, peeled
1 teaspoon of maple syrup ( optional)
1/4 cup of pistachios, shelled.

Method: In your food processor, mix coconut butter, syrup and peaches until they are smooth. add pistachios and pulse a few more times. Pour the mixture into a 8 by 8 baking dish lined with parchment paper. cool in the fridge for 2-3 hours, until the mixture hardens. Use a knife and cut small pieces of fudge. This will make 15-20 pieces of fudge. Keep the fudge in the fridge until you are ready to eat it.

This fudge was soooo good! My family gobbled it up. I would like to try it with other fruits as well. Now I want to try some more peach and pistachio recipes.
