This Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge is filled with protein, low carb and sugar free!
Who loves fudge??? Of course eating fudge on a daily basis is totally unrealistic when trying to watch, maintain or lose weight right? Not when it’s protein fudge like in this recipe!! You can enjoy a couple of pieces of fudge each day for a snack because it’s low carb, sugar free and high in protein in one little piece!
This fudge just happened. I had no plans on making a fudge for you or me. It was a complete accident. Or one might call it a failed recipe that actually turned even better than expected. This recipe has been made twice and both times I changed it somewhat to make a protein bar. I wanted something filled with protein, without sugar, homemade, better than you could buy in the health food stores, and easy to grab and go for busy afternoons with my kids. Well after two attempts I gave up the bar idea and it’s now the fudge you see here. The texture is completely like typical fudge so why try to change an already good thing right? I will try again with a protein bar, but this is a good start!
