Homemade Maple Cinnamon Peanut Butter

Hello peanut butter lovers! Thank you all for the comments on yesterdays postage…let me know if any of you try the pancakes, I’d love to hear what you think!

Today I had a craving, and since I listened to my craving yesterday and the results were “fruitful” (pun totally intended), I thought I’d do the same today.

Remember that tin of mix nuts I was grazing on the other day?

Well, this is what I was left with today…

That’s just (pea)nuts!

Now they’re naked nuts! 😯

Now they’re in the food processor…muhahahaha!

Now they look like mushy couscous…

Now they have friends…

And now they look like perfection!

Hmm, what to do…what to do…what to do…

Told ya that rubber spatula comes in handy! 😉

Maple Cinnamon Peanut Butter: (yields just over 1/2 cup)

  • 1 cup roasted and salted peanuts
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 tablespoon canola oil (without it, your peanut butter will not be creamy)

1. Process the peanuts in a food processor until smooth, occasionally scraping down the         sides.
2. Once mixture is smooth, add syrup, cinnamon, and oil and process just to combine.
3. Enjoy!

I made a small batch due to the amount of nuts I had on hand, but feel free to double the recipe for more peanut butter lovin’!

Well, I’m off to take my peanut-butterful belly to bed! Hope you guys have a great rest of the night…oh, and Happy First Day of Spring! Yay! 🙂

What would your homemade peanut butter have in it?
