This natural Cinnamon Maple Peanut Butter recipe is so creamy and flavorful, you will want to smear it on more than just your morning toast! Made with only three ingredients in less than 10 minutes, this homemade treat is easy to whip up any time of day.
As a parent of small children, I’ve learned to never run out of certain foods. For example, peanut butter. I don’t know what it is about this simple condiment, but my children act as if they cannot survive without it. No joking here. They eat it on toast, on celery, even by the spoonful!
I can’t really blame them; peanut butter is amazing! Not to mention all of the health benefits associated with this creamy spread. Packed with protein and healthy fats, I hardly feel guilty about adding a little extra to my smoothies in the morning.
Natural Cinnamon Maple Peanut Butter Recipe
Now, when I talk about peanut butter, I’m not talking about the store-bought jars, with added sugars and oils. I’m talking real, delicious homemade peanut butter. In fact, once I learned how easy making peanut butter really was, I never looked back. Since then, we’ve made almond butter, cookie butter, and my favorite; Cinnamon Maple Peanut Butter. This stuff is the bee’s knees people. Spread on a piece of toast alone, or add a homemade jam, and you’ve got yourself a match made in heaven.
This recipe starts with peanuts in their most natural form. Meaning no salt, no roasting; just raw, plain nuts. Then you add the natural cinnamon and grade A maple syrup to achieve the perfect peanut butter! Just like that, in less than 10 minutes, you’ve got yourself a batch of homemade Cinnamon Maple Peanut Butter.
- 3 cup natural peanuts
- 2-3 tbsp grade A maple syrup
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- Start by placing nuts into a food processor, and mix for approximately 6 minutes, scrapping sides as needed. Adjust time to get desired consistency.
- After 6 minutes (or until desired consistency is reached), add the cinnamon and syrup, then process for an additional minute.
Home Chef Tip: Switch it up with other nuts and add ins.
Depending on your desired consistency, it may take anywhere from 3- 10 minutes. Prefer chunky peanut butter? No problem! Just throw in an extra handful at the end and pulse three to four times! Viola!
The wonderful thing about making your nut butter at home is that you can customize it however you’d like! Add in different flavors, try different nuts, the possibilities are endless!
