Well you’re in luck because my peanut butter freezer fudge is made with just 4 simple ingredients that are perfect for a low carb lifestyle! If you’re living the FASTer Way, you can make these work on regular macro days as well!

2 tbsp softened coconut oil (not melted)
1 tbsp pure maple syrup
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract

- Top with flaky sea salt or pink Himalayan salt before placing in freezer if you like sweet and salty treats.
- Split recipe in half and add 2 tbsp cacao powder to one half. Layer in muffin cups to create chocolate peanut butter cups!
- Add 3 tbsp cacao powder to mixture for a chocolaty flavor.
