One of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet is raw butter from cows on thick, green, unsprayed pasture. Deep yellow, raw butter is one of the healthiest foods you can feed your children to help them grow up sturdy and strong. So why not make butter fudge and make this healthy food a treat?
Shocked that I am promoting raw butter? Then please educate yourself about the dangers of butter substitutes and read The Untold Story of Butter, Butter Has Indeed Been Framed, and Five Fats You MUST Have in Your Kitchen.
If you do not have access to raw butter in your area, then buy the best gourmet butter you can afford from the healthfood store. Kerry Gold from Ireland is the butter I choose to buy when I am temporarily out of my raw butter. I never buy Organic Valley butter.

Raw Butter Fudge Recipe
Makes 1 large pan approximately 13″ x 9″
2 cups deep yellow, raw butter
1 cup creamy, organic peanut butter preferably made yourself with soaked/dried peanuts (in a pinch, I use Arrowhead Mills Creamy Organic Peanut Butter) *
1 1/2 cups raw, local honey
1 cup organic carob powder
1 tsp sea salt
2 tsp organic vanilla extract
1 TBL organic chocolate extract
*Substitute sunflower butter, tahini (sesame butter) or almond butter for peanut butter if desired.
Soften the raw butter to room temperature. Mix all ingredients well in a large, glass bowl. Spread parchment paper across a large pan that is 1-2 inches deep and spread fudge evenly so that it is about 1/2 inch in depth. Put pan in freezer to set for about 1 hour. Cut into squares and serve as a snack or even a very fast, healthy breakfast on the go!
