Salted Fudge PB2

Continuing yesterday’s sweet-and-salty trend, and last week’s flavored PB2 trend, let me introduce you to my newest creation:

Salted Fudge PB2!

This recipe is admittedly fussy when it comes to pairing it with the right oatmeal base (not every recipe enjoys being paired with salt!). I had this on Sweet Potato Fudge Oatmeal, but I could see it working in a few others, too. One that immediately comes to mind is Chocolate Chip Cookie Baked Oatmeal. I love salted chocolate chip cookies. It would be nice as the frosting on top of Brownie Baked Oatmeal as well!

If you don’t have coarse salt, you can try making this with regular table salt, but it’s simply not as good. Salt is super cheap. It’s worth the investment. No need to drop $10 on fancy pink sea flakes. If it’s more than $3, you’re paying too much. 🙂

Salted Fudge PB2

Prep Time: 3 minutes

Yield: serves 1

What you'll need:

  • 2 heaping tbsp plain PB2
  • 2 tbsp water (plus more as needed)
  • 1 and 1/2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/8 tsp vanilla extract
  • maple syrup or other sweetener, as desired
  • pinch of coarse salt (needs to be coarse!)
  • optional: 1/4 tsp coconut oil (adds incredible flavor)

How to make it:

  1. In a small bowl, add water a little at a time to the PB2. Don't add the water all at once; that way you'll be able to choose the consistency you want.
  2. If adding optional coconut oil, stir in now.
  3. Stir in cocoa powder and vanilla extract. If the mixture gets too thick, add a few drops more water (less than a teaspoon!!).
  4. Taste. If too bitter, add maple syrup a little at a time until you like the taste.
  5. Stir in a pinch of coarse salt.
  6. Add to the top of your oatmeal of choice and enjoy!

    Here’s another recommendation I have based on yours: Susan Cain’s TED Talks video called The Power of Introverts. It’s an amazing video talking about how yes, we introverts can make a huge impact on the world! Salted fudge pb2 sounds AWESOME right now too XD

    This isn’t related to this recipe, but I wondered if you’ve ever tried to recreate Girl Scout cookie flavors (since it’s Girl Scout cookie season!). I think I’ve seen your Thin Mint Oatmeal, but Tagalongs or Samoas might make fun oatmeal flavors as well!

      A Samoas oatmeal sounds amazing! ?

      • Christine says:

        Yes, it does! I found a recipe on Pinterest for a Samoas oatmeal, but it uses way too much caramel and chocolate for the small amount of oats that the recipe calls for. I’ll have to figure out how to make the recipe healthy. If I succeed, I’ll make sure to share it here.

    This looks great! I love the sweet/salty combination. I also appreciate how you’ve been doing topping recipes lately. Toppings are a quick way to dress up a bowl of plain oatmeal or a simple recipe (such as Basic Banana Oatmeal) that I’ve made over and over.

    The first article was definitely a tear jerker! I truly admire Emily McDowell’s honesty! The second article on introvertness is definitely something I can relate too, being a shy introvert myself. After reading both articles, I found a common linkage. Many times people do not know what to say in fear of being judged. It could be the reason why a Facebook post typically has more “likes” than comments. Another common linkage is sensory overload. When there is too much going on, people will check out and disregard there surrounding. Even when someone else could really use their emotional support as a mood booster. And to end this comment on a more uplifting note, I like how your recipes lately have shown that polar opposite tastes, sweet and salty, can mesh into something beautiful. It definitely shows that people with great ideas should not be afraid to hide them.

    What could I use as a substitute for the coconut oil in your PB2 topping recipes? Would regular cooking oil work?

    I tried this PB2 recipe this morning, and used it as a topping for Brownie Batter Oatmeal. It tasted delicious! I added 1 tsp maple syrup, which was just right for me. I love the sweet-salty combination. As you mentioned, this topping wouldn’t work on every oatmeal, but it worked well on Brownie Batter.
