Happy National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day! I LOVE peanut butter its so creamy, filling and versatile! I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate, than to post my homemade Cinnamon Raisin Peanut Butter recipe! I love making my own peanut butter because I can control the texture, flavor, and all of the ingredients going into my peanut butter. Making peanut butter from scratch is a lot cheaper than buying store-bought peanut butter and it tastes more flavorful and delicious. Peanut butter tastes great and has many nutrients including: potassium, protein, healthy fats, fiber, antioxidants, magnesium, and more!
Making your own peanut butter is fun, easy, and tastes yummy! You can get really creative with your peanut butter recipes by adding cocoa powder, chocolate, honey, hazelnuts and more! You can eat peanut butter with practically everything: crackers, toast, yogurt, oatmeal, smoothies, pretzels, celery, apples, bananas, chocolate, and much more. I like my homemade peanut butter so much that I won’t buy pre-made peanut butter anymore!
