These healthy protein fudge bites are perfect to satisfy a sweet craving and thanks to the protein they should help you to feel fuller for longer!

 

You can easily double the mixture to make more and store them in the fridge or freezer for later.

 

Do let me know if you make them!

 

Nutrition stats shown are for using ground almonds, making 5 pieces of fudge.. if you use PPB they are 55 Kcal, 3.8g carbs, 3.6g protein & 3.4g fat each!

 

Ingredients

  • 1 slightly heaped tbsp melted coconut oil*
  • 1/2 tbsp runny honey
  • 2 tbsp protein powder**
  • 3 tbsp ground almonds/PPB***
  • Optional: Raisins or Desiccated Coconut

**You can buy coconut oil from some supermarkets or online e.g. from MuscleFood - use code NIC5 for 5% off!!

**I used vanilla protein powder from Protein Dynamix and you can get money off with the discount code PDNIC.

***PPB stands for Powdered Peanut Butter, you can read my product review for more information and can buy it from Amazon!

If you are allergic to nuts you can use ground flaxseeds!

 

Nutty Protein Fudge

The lighter coloured pieces were made with ground almond, & the darker pieces were made with PPB!

 

Method

Step 1

Mix together the melted coconut oil, honey, protein powder & ground almonds/PPB until you get a smooth dough-like consistency (add a touch more oil/honey if your mixture seems dry)

Step 2

Press the mixture into an ice-cube tray - making 4-6 individual bites (I made 5 in the video!)

Step 3

Freeze for at least 15 minutes before enjoying or storing in the fridge or freezer for later!

    Finally managed to track down some Coconut Oil and made these this evening but using Chocolate flavoured Impact Whey powder from Myprotein and they are seriously good.
    I needed to add a little extra honey but not much. They will definitely go in the treat box.
    Another awesome recipe Nic.

    Could you use 2tbsp ground almonds & 1tbsp of peanut butter to get the flavour? As I don’t have any PPB.

    Would you be able to use any other oil aside from coconut do you think?

      I haven’t tried Beth so sorry! You can get coconut oil from Tesco/Asda for £2.50 though if this helps :) x

    Is there anything I can use in replacement of the protein powder, or leave it out completely? Thanks!

      Mmm you could experiment with more of the nuts.. or swap for coconut flour perhaps.. or oat flour.. but add flavouring such as cocoa, vanilla or cinnamon :) or you could use skimmed milk powder – do let me know!

    Nic, I know your recipes are lovely and easy (I’ve tried and enjoyed a few now) but somehow I’ve done something wrong with my attempt at this one!
    My mixture went REALLY runny :-/ wonder what on earth I did wrong with such an easy mix lol
    Anyway I’ll try it again later :)

      How strange! It should be like dough… maybe you used too much coconut oil or honey? x

    This recipe is great and so quick! It’s probably quicker to make these than go to corner shop when you want a treat!
    Have made lots of variations;
    Chocolate whey with PPB
    Chocolate orange whey with chocolate PPB
    Vanilla whey with PPB topped with dark chocolate, coconut and agave
    Yum yum!
    Thanks Nic!
