9 No-Bake Recipes for the Peanut Butter Lover

There is no denying that I’m a peanut butter lover. You can find me dipping my spoon into a jar of peanut butter, making homemade peanut butter in my food processor, or adding a heaping tablespoon to any smoothie recipe more often than not. When I found out November is National Peanut Butter Lover’s month, well I decided it was time to celebrate with a few of my favorite peanut butter recipes {not that I need an excuse}.

If you love peanut butter as much as I do {and buy it often}, make sure you look for the brands that just list “peanuts” as their only ingredient, and maybe a little added sea salt. Many common brands on grocery store shelves contain added sugar, hydrogenated oils, high fructose corn syrup, etc. You don’t need that stuff. You can even make your own peanut butter right at home by replacing the almonds for peanuts in this delicious Maple Cinnamon Nut Butter Recipe.

Here are 9 recipes made with peanut butter that will have your mouth watering and your kitchen calling your name so you can start blending, food processing and/or freezing these recipes all month long. (Note: Whenever a recipe calls for almond butter, you can use peanut butter instead; trust me I’ve tried them and they always turn out delicious, if not better.)
