For the fudge

  • 1 cup natural peanut butter crunchy
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil liquified
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2-3/4 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 cup shredded coconut unsweetened
  • 1 cup semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips use dairy free chips to keep vegan


  • Chocolate chips, flaky sea salt, toasted coconut, chopped & toasted peanuts (I used salted peanuts)


  1. In a large mixing bowl, stir together peanut butter, coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla, salt, and shredded coconut until well combined.

  2. Over a double boiler (or in a microwave), gently melt chocolate chips until completely melted and smooth. Stir into peanut butter mixture. Reserve some for topping drizzle

  3. Add fudge mixture to a standard loaf pan (9x5) in one even layer. Drizzle reserved chocolate overtop. Add toppings here, if using, then freeze to set for 30 minutes. 

  4. Cut with a sharp knife into 14 even pieces. Let thaw for 10 minutes before serving. Store in fridge for up to 10 days, covered.
