Which means we I am due for another peanut butter recipe!
Recipe #1: Reece’s Brownies with Peanut Butter Frosting
Recipe #2: Peanut Butter M&M Blondies
But before we go even further, I HAVE to share with you the easiest, tastiest, purely dangerous recipe for Homemade Peanut Butter. For my baking needs, I am fine to use a plain or generic peanut butter. But when it comes to smearing over bread for a peanut butter and banana sandwich, I always go with the real thing. I love the grind your own nut butters from Whole Foods, and their honey roasted peanut butter is utterly addictive.
And super easy to make at home.
You just throw some peanuts into the food processor and blend.
No oil needed. It just takes a little patience to allow everything to smooth out. Luckily, this leaves you plenty of time for taste testing, which in my opinion is the BEST part of homemade nut butters!
Thankfully, I stock pile leftover jelly and jam jars, so I have the perfect place to store my peanut butter and jars to share with my friends and family.
Like with hummus, once you’ve tried homemade peanut butter, it’s hard to go back to the store bought variety!
Don’t you just want to dive into this jar with a spoon???
You should! It’s worth it!
Quite possibly (and embarrassingly), I licked the bowl (and spatula) clean!
I have big plans for my peanut butter, so stay tuned for Peanut Butter Recipe #3 (coming tomorrow)!
But until then…you might as well keep your food processor out for dessert. You don’t even need to clean it.
Just add some frozen banana and whip up a bowl of Banana (and Peanut Butter) Soft Serve! If I had some chocolate chips, I would have stirred them in too.
This dessert was so awesome that even the banana hating BOY was checking it out! I sat down to watch a movie for a quiet Saturday night in and happily dug into my bowl (almost licking it clean too). The BOY and I are getting a little spoiled with these quiet weekends, but we are loving our unplanned Saturdays! It’s the perfect time to refresh before all of the holiday excitement (and law school finals) ahead!
Do you ever make nut butters?
