Ingredient Spotlight: Peanut Butter

Shares 0

I have a thing for peanut butter.  I’ve seriously considered starting a second blog called PB Sandwich 365.  That could be fun.  But it would also drive me nuts (pun intended) to have 2 blogs.  I don’t think I could keep up.

Most of the peanut butter we eat in this house gets spread on bread, crackers, graham crackers or eaten with a spoon to cure hiccups.  But peanut butter makes an awesome ingredient too.  Here are a few of the recipes I have, including one for making your own homemade peanut butter.

Now it’s your turn to share your recipes.  Link up any recipe on your blog that uses peanut butter.  It doesn’t have to be a recent post, just be sure to link directly to your recipe, not just the main page of your blog.  I only ask that you include a link back to Eat at Home in your post. You can link directly to this post or use the button in the sidebar.

You can find the schedule for Ingredient Spotlight here, if you’re interested in knowing what’s coming up.

  7. Still no blog, but thinking about it. Just have to figure out my digital camera. Here is a great quick and easy peanut butter brownie recipe that we love at our house. It only takes 1/4 c. of peanut butter which is great when you want peanut butter cookies, but the peanut butter jar is almost empty.

    Peanut Butter Brownies
    1/2 c. shortening
    1/4 c. peanut butter
    1 1/2-2 c. sugar
    3 eggs
    1 1/2 c. flour
    1 1/2 t. baking powder
    1/2 t. salt
    1/2 c. salted peanuts

    Melt shortening and remove from heat. Add peanut butter and stir until melted.
    Add sugar and eggs. Mix thoroughly. Add remaining ingredients. Spread in
    greased 9×13-in. pan. Bake at 325 degrees 25-30 minutes

    Note: The range for the amount of sugar is because the recipe called for 2 cups and I have been trying to reduce the amount of sugar in some recipes. I find that 1 1/2 c. sugar makes a brownie that is plenty sweet enough for me since there is sugar in most peanut butters. I also use chunky peanut butter and leave out the chopped peanuts. You can also use walnuts or pecans.

    This is such a fun series. Thanks Tiffany

  8. I cannot keep peanut butter around my house for long and a big part of it is due to the:

    Peanut Butter Balls (also called Honey Balls and Edible Playdough)
    I was first introduced to these amazing treats on a bike ride across Iowa (RAGBRAI) pre-kids and have since seen that the recipe with very slight, if any, alterations under different names. It is a super easy recipe that has been a staple as a simple snack and now that I have kids, they love helping with the simple preparation.

    1/2 c. peanut butter
    1 cup oatmeal
    1 cup dry milk
    1/2 -1 cup honey (depending on the source, but I prefer 1/2 c.)

    Mix and roll into balls or use as playdough that can also be eaten. Store in the fridge.

    You can vary this and it is often found with additions such as raisins or sunflower seeds, and some people add a bit of vanilla. It is so easy and fun to experiment with!

    We love peanut butter! I don’t have a blog to do a link, but one of our favorite peanut butter recipes is the peanut butter and jelly milkshake that they make at 50’s Prime Time Cafe at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. We’ve made this recipe at home, and it tastes exactly like the milkshakes in the restaurant.

    • Tinker Kell, I have got to try making those milk shakes. I even bought all the ingredients once and didn’t get them made before we ate up the ice cream.
