How do you make easy peanut butter fudge?
Well, friends- This is your answer. Not only is this peanut butter fudge recipe ridiculously easy and fool-proof, it needs to be renamed to peanut butter crack recipe. Why? Because you WON’T stop at one piece.
Did I mention it needs just three ingredients, takes less than 5 minutes to whip up and is secretly healthy? Well, there you go!
It’s often assumed that to make a smooth and creamy fudge, you need the rich, unhealthy ingredients. This is totally not the case, as this recipe totally goes against the grain…pun intended!
It’s super easy because you probably have all the pantry ingredients right now- Peanut butter, a sticky sweetener, and a dash of coconut flour to hold it all together!
For my paleo friends and those who want a peanut-free fudge, this totally works with my other favorites- The almond butter fudge, the sugar-free Nutella fudge and the maple almond fudge too.
How do you make peanut butter fudge or peanut butter crack without condensed milk?
This is the most common question regarding all my fudge recipes! When I shared my previous fudge recipes (there are a fair few!), those who made it were shocked. It contained no dairy and no condensed milk, yet was super firm!
The key to keeping the 3 ingredient peanut butter crack fudge recipe firm is to play around with the coconut flour.
Ultra smooth and creamy peanut butter crack- Use the minimal amount of coconut flour and keep the fudge in the freezer (like freezer fudge!).
Thick and firm peanut butter crack- Use the amount of coconut flour listed in the recipe card to ensure the batter remains firm once refrigerated.
How to keep this recipe 100% sugar-free and low carb
To keep this recipe super low carb, you’ll need to ensure the sweetener of choice is sugar-free. If you use another one of my preferred sweeteners, it will be refined-sugar free.
I often a monk fruit sticky sweetener to keep this 3 ingredient paleo vegan peanut butter fudge crack sugar-free.
Alternatives to Peanut Butter
- Almond butter
- Cashew Butter
- Sunflower Seed Butter
- Soy Nut Butter (Also referred to as ‘wow butter’)
Alternatives to Coconut Flour
Coconut flour is a key ingredient to keep the recipe firm yet smooth and creamy. If you have a coconut allergy, you CAN try using almond flour, but you’ll need to double the amount. Alternatively, you can use coconut oil.

3 Ingredient Paleo Vegan Peanut Butter Crack Bars (Keto, Sugar Free)
- 2 cups smooth peanut butter can sub any nut or seed butter of choice
- 1/2 cup sticky sweetener of choice I used a monk fruit sweetened maple syrup
- 1/2 cup coconut flour See notes *
- Line an 8 x 8-inch baking pan with parchment paper and set aside.
- In a microwave-safe bowl or stovetop, combine your peanut butter (or nut/seed butter of choice) with your sticky sweetener. Heat until melted.
- Using a tablespoon, add coconut flour slowly, until a thick batter remains. For a freezer fudge like crack bars, use less coconut flour. For a thick, room temperature stable fudge like crack bars, continue adding until a thick batter remains.
- Transfer the peanut butter crack bar fudge batter to the lined pan. Press firmly in place and refrigerate until firm. Using a slightly wet knife, cut into 20 pieces.

Peanuts are a legume and are not paleo. Sesame butter, almond butter, or cashew butter would work paleo. Peanut butter for keto and vegan.
That is correct, which is why the other options are included 🙂
Bless U 4 all recipes. PLEASE CLARIFY WHAT IS ‘MONK FRUIT’ SYRUP. AVAILABLE AT HEALTH FOOD STORES. I,M A NEWBY AT THIS BUT AN OLDIE. THANKS.
Hi Sharon! It’s a maple syrup like consistency but without the sugar. It’s available online or at health food stores. If not, you can use any sticky sweetener like maple syrup, honey or agave 🙂
Looks good, but the link for the maple syrup is very high in sugar. Wrong link?
Ahh sorry, Steve- I’ll have it fixed!
Your recipes are totally amazing. I’ve been cooking wrong all these years. Now my health conscious son doesn’t mind eating sweets. Thanks!
That means so much, Sandi! 🙂
Is there any way this would work with some canned coconut milk or almond milk instead of the sweetener? This looks so delicious but I cannot have any sweeteners!
So I’ve made this twice – each time the peanut butter etc doesn’t melt….it gets firmer? Is that normal? Tastes great though.
Hi Katey! Have you tried melting the peanut butter first 🙂
I really don’t like coconut, in any shape or form. Can I replace the coconut flour with something else?
You can try almond flour, but use double the amount 🙂
What is sticky monk fruit sweetener? I hate maple is there an option? Where do u but?
Hi, you can use pure maple syrup or honey!
Says there are 4g carbs and 3g fiber, does that mean this recipe has 1 net carb?
That is correct, depending on the brand of peanut butter you use too 🙂
These are pictured with a chocolate coating. How do I do that & keep them Keto friendly?
It’s just melted keto chocolate.
