We have a thing about peanut butter around here. As in, we go through a jar a week–so fast that we don’t even bother to refrigerate our natural peanut butter. When I’m creating a recipe, I often grab peanut butter because it adds thickness and a rich kick of protein. Here are six of my favorite peanut butter recipes to make:
Easy Homemade Peanut Butter
If you have a food processor (or high speed blender) and can push a button, you can make peanut butter. Variations: Use almonds, cashews, mixed nuts or add a handful of chocolate or a drizzle of honey. Get the recipe for Homemade Peanut Butter.
4 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies
I love these hearty little cookies, made with no flour. You can also spread melted chocolate between them to make cookie sandwiches. Get the recipe for 4 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies.
No-Bake Peanut Butter Balls
These are a great snack to have on hand to satisfy hunger–or pop one or two in a lunchbox as a sweet treat. Get the recipe for No-Bake Peanut Butter Balls.
Peanut Butter Breakfast Shake
I invented this rich, filling shake for my breakfast-phobic son–but it’s quickly become one of my favorites too. Get the recipe for Peanut Butter Breakfast Shake.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie
This is the smoothie I have almost every day. Make sure your bananas are really ripe for maximum sweetness (without ANY added sugar). Get the recipe for Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Oatmeal Cups
This is the most popular recipe on my blog–and at least two moms I know make a batch of these twice a month, every month! They’re great for breakfasts, lunch boxes, and snacks. Get the recipe for Peanut Butter Chocolate Oatmeal Cups.
