This nut butter fudge is easy, and highly addicting. It is the perfect workout snack before or after the gym and it melts in your mouth.
This has been one of my go to treats for a very long time. The sweet and salty combination is just so tasty. This treat melts in your mouth.

The perfect pre or post workout treat
It is a great way for me to curb my sweet tooth and I love to have a piece before I head to the gym for a little fuel. I have been adding my MCT collagen to just about everything lately because winters here in Colorado are cold and DRY -my hair skin and nails need double the collagen to get though the season. I added some to this recipe and it was the perfect way to start upping my intake. This recipe is practically fool proof with the right ingredients so feel free to play around with the measurements.
What nut butter should I use?
I suggest using your favorite! I really like using cashew butter with this recipe because it freezers slightly softer. I have tried this recipe with just about every nut butter and it is always just as delicious.
I do suggest you use a runny natural based nut butter, it will blend a bit easier than processed nut butters.
I try to keep this recipe low in sugar since I often use it as a pre or post workout snack. I love adding stevia into mine so it's sweet without the added sugars.
How to store this freezer fudge
You will want to store the squares in a plastic bag or wrapped up in the parchment paper. You must keep the bars frozen otherwise they will melt. I will sometimes leave a piece of parchment paper on the bottom of a pyrex and lay them flat in the container and store them that way. You can cut them into fun shapes or keep them all uniform and square.
If they are too hard to bite through, just let them sit for 2 to 4 minutes and get softened. They will melt in your mouth!
