Peanut butter recipes are my favorite kind to make. I think peanut butter was my first love and I’m celebrating that love by using peanut butter in recipes any chance I get.
Whether I’m mixing it into a batter to make a cake or cookie, adding a scoop into a smoothie, or just eating it straight with a spoon, peanut butter is kinda an everyday occurrence for me.
Today, I’m rounding up some of my absolute favorite peanut butter recipes that are must-makes any time of year.
This extensive list is bound to give you at least one new peanut butter recipe to try! There are tons of no bake treats, some gooey baked desserts, and even some drinks to sip on!
What Kind of Peanut Butter is Best?
Well, it depends on what you’re looking for and what the recipe calls for. Some recipes want a no-stir creamy peanut butter and if so, use that! I tend to use natural creamy peanut butter for a few reasons.
When peanut butter comes with oil and sweetener already in it, I can’t guarantee how that peanut butter will act in the recipe. I tend to go for peanut butters that are just ground up peanuts and nothing else. This way, you can add the amount of oil, sugar and salt you want to the recipe and have more control over the recipe as a whole.
