Chef Ray – Banana Nut Butter Fudge

This is the perfect snack post training, just pull it out of the freezer when you get home. After having a shower it will have defrosted enough and will help replace the fuel used during your workout.

Serves 8 pieces

  • 1 large banana
  • ½ cup chia seed peanut butter (look for the Mother Earth brand in NZ)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  1. In a food processor, blend all ingredients until well combined.
  2. Line a small rectangular plastic dish with baking paper. Transfer fudge mixture to dish and spread evenly.
  3. Place in the freezer for at least 2 hours. To serve, remove and cut into 8 pieces.


  • Don’t use a strong-tasting olive oil as this will affect the flavour.
  • Sprinkle the fudge with desiccated coconut before freezing, if you like.
  • You can decorate each piece of fudge with an almond or a peanut before freezing.
  • Any 100% nut butter will work such as macadamia, cashew or almond.
  • Store for up to two weeks in an airtight container in the freezer.

Although I’m not a qualified chef I do like to pretend I’m on Master Chef. I source the recipes from the stated source (not sauce) and make them taking the photo of the meal I produce for myself.
