Healthy Protein Fudge


  • 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


  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)
  2. Press the mixture into an ice-cube tray - making 4-6 individual bites (I made 5!)
  3. Freeze for at least 15 minutes before enjoying or storing in the fridge or freezer for later!


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

**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!


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!

    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.

    • May 6, 2014 / 6:25 pm

      Hummmm, I don’t think the texture would be the same.. but feel free to experiment! xx

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

    • May 10, 2014 / 2:29 pm

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

    I trrided making Protein Fudge before and it just didn’t go well and didn’t tast good, but this respiie is fab!! so simple, takes mintins and tast lush. All the lads at work went ‘Nuts’ for it 😉 can’t wait to try it will PPB!!

    I also wanted to ask Nic with out sounding stupied, the Nutritional Info when its says a serving ( for the Fudge) what is calassed as? is it one piece?

    • May 15, 2014 / 7:31 pm

      Hello! Aw thanks!! Yes it’s for for one piece however it varies depending on your ingredients, amounts used and number of fudge pieces made 🙂 xx

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

    • May 20, 2014 / 7:21 pm

      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 🙂

    • May 29, 2014 / 2:25 pm

      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!

    Do you think the purition protein powder will work?

    • August 12, 2016 / 9:07 pm

      Yes! Add more honey or coconut oil if it seems dry 🙂
