Fruit-On-The-Bottom Protein Peanut Butter + How To Make Homemade Peanut Butter

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on July 31, 2012

IMG_2860

Between adding peanut butter in smoothies, spreading it on veggies and apples, and of course, baking with it, I can go through a lot of peanut butter in a month. Oh, and I like to eat it with a spoon sometimes too! I recently started to make my own peanut butter to save a bit of money. When you buy your own peanuts and make it at home, it works out to being a bit less costly than store-bought. Plus, it takes less than 10 minutes to whip up. I also enjoy making my own almond butter too. For my other nut butter recipes, see my nut butter category.

How To Make Homemade Peanut Butter

IMG_2883

I bought a huge bag of roasted non-salted peanuts at the grocery store recently. I got 8 cups at about 75 cents per cup. I’m sure you can find even cheaper nuts at bulk food stores or even online.

To make homemade peanut butter, add 2 cups of roasted peanuts into a food processor. When making nut butter, you’ll need a heavy duty food processor. The smaller ones just don’t seem to work from what I’ve heard. Peanut butter is one of my favourite nut butters to make because it’s cheap and it blends up very fast!

Here it is after 1 minute of processing – it’s already coming together!

I added in 1/8th teaspoon fine grain sea salt and 1/4 tsp cinnamon. At the 7 minute stage, you can stop, but I like to go a couple extra minutes because it gets super smooth!

IMG_2890

Also, feel free to make it chunky by adding more peanuts and pulsing.

Homemade Peanut Butter (makes 1 cup):

  • 2 cups roasted non-salted peanuts
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8th tsp fine grain sea salt

I didn’t stop there either…meet fruit-on-the-bottom protein peanut butter:

For the recipe & how-to photos, click “continue” keep reading.

This second recipe is a fun way to stretch out your peanut butter supply even more – turn 1/2 cup PB into 1 & 1/4 cups – while still maintaining almost the same protein content per tablespoon. This idea is inspired by the Maple Cinnamon ABU I made in the past (lightly adapted from Heather’s original recipe), but this recipe has protein powder for a boost.

I used Garden of Life’s Raw Protein Power, which has 17 grams of protein per serving. It’s also unflavoured so it makes a good base for this recipe. I caution against using any strange tasting protein powders here – you want something nice and neutral. If your protein powder doesn’t taste great, this recipe won’t either. Consider yourself warned! ;)

Into the food processor goes almond milk, roasted peanut butter, protein powder, cinnamon, and vanilla extract!

IMG_2840-2

After tasting it, I deemed a touch of sweetener was necessary to cover up the mild protein powder taste. I added a bit of maple syrup (about 4 teaspoons) and it was perfect!

IMG_2843

It’s quite thin in consistency when you first make it, but it easily doubles in thickness once chilled.

I took it up a notch or two by adding strawberry jam into the mix! PB and J spread, anyone?

PB & J vegan overnight oats happened, obviously. It’s also great for dipping apples, banana soft serve, and adding to smoothies.

Fruit-On-The-Bottom Protein Peanut Butter

Print, Email, or Text this recipe

Yield: 1 & 1/4 cups (not including jam)

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup almond milk
  • 6 tbsp neutral-tasting protein powder (I used Garden of Life’s Raw Protein Powder)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp + 1 tsp pure maple syrup (or other liquid sweetener)
  • Strawberry jam, to stir into the bottom

 

1. In a food processor, add peanut butter, almond milk, protein powder, cinnamon, and vanilla. Process until smooth, stopping to scrape down the bowl as needed.

2. Add sweetener to taste and process again until blended. Add a pinch of salt if desired.

3. Scoop into a jar and swirl in your favourite jam. Will keep in the fridge in a sealed container for at least 1.5-2 weeks. This spread will thicken up considerably once chilled.

  • Nutritional Info: (per tablespoon without jam, makes 20 tbsp): 51 cals, 3 grams fat, 2 grams carbs, 1 gram fibre, 1 gram sugar, 3 grams protein.

These canning jars are from Crate & Barrel – fell in love! They are perfect for nut butters & homemade chia seed jam. Speaking of chia seed jam, this would be a great recipe to make right along side this protein peanut butter.

IMG_2876

By the way, the chia seed jam lasts much longer than I originally anticipated. I’ve had some in the fridge for about a month and it still seems to be fine! I’m not sure how long this peanut butter will stay good for in the fridge, but my first batch lasted 1.5-2 weeks and then I polished it off.

Feel free to try this out with almond butter too. If you don’t want to add any protein powder, check out the Maple Cinnamon ABU recipe. I basically used a 1:1 ratio of almond butter to almond milk, and added a touch of cinnamon and maple syrup to taste.

Ooh I can’t believe I’ve never added protein powder to my nut butters before – such a genius idea! I’m pretty sure my food processor would hold up to this. Have you ever tried making PB in your Vitamix? I have a feeling it would get kinda stuck in the bottom and around the edges, but let me know. Might do an experiment this weekend! :)

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) July 31, 2012 at 10:54 am

I know some ppl make nut butters in the Vitamix, but I personally find it such a pain to scoop out of the bottom. I prefer the food processor because you can scoop every last bit out. :)

Alex @ Brain, Body, Because July 31, 2012 at 12:12 pm

This makes me SO happy. I have wanted a Vitamix forever, but can’t justify the cost. I’m glad to hear that, in this circumstance, you actually *prefer* the food processor :)

Yum!! I just made a post about a peanut butter protein smoothie I make, using the exact same protein powder. It’s my absolute favorite right now… not too chalky or anything, and it really is neutral in flavor. I also love making my own nut butters… I like being able to decide what goes into them, and whether their raw or roasted. Great post, and the fruit-on-the-bottom parfait sounds incredible! :)

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) July 31, 2012 at 3:46 pm

It’s probably the protein powder I prefer the most too. I do find it only slightly chalky, but not overly so. I also like that it can blend into other flavours and I contrl the sweetness.

Sarena (The Non Dairy Queen) July 31, 2012 at 10:51 am

This looks amazing! I LOVE making my own nut butters and peanut is a definite favorite. Although lately, I’ve been using peanut flour for a lot of my quickie peanut butter recipes. I love the addition of a flavorless protein powder to boost the protein in this. Sounds delicious and perfectly nutritious!

This looks delicious! Protein is a serious buzz word right now. I know when I hear it I think, ‘healthy’ and it’s usually lower carb. I have actually made your chia seed jam (strawberry) and loved it! Chia seeds are the perfect way to thicken it. It’s great for me because I seem to have a difficult time digesting the pectin that would ordinarily be used.

Angela (Oh She Glows) July 31, 2012 at 3:53 pm

Hey Kathy, Yup you can use almonds too -the flavour will change but other than that it should be fine. I also find almonds take a bit longer to process into nut butter (if you are making it from scratch that is)

Reply

Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table July 31, 2012 at 11:22 am

I have to admit – I am a disaster when it come to making anything but almond butter. Everything else seems to turn into a sticky ball. Ugh.

Love your idea of “stretching” the PB with the recipe! I do something similar with peanut flour, but you have me wanting to try this… with the massive glob of jelly. It’s sinful how good that looks. How did you keep from demolishing the entire jar at one?

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) July 31, 2012 at 3:54 pm

I wish we had PB flour here in Canada…I keep hearing so many things about it!

Love your new site! Now I can commence drooling even faster over your recipes. Love the drop-downs by category. Must disable all dessert tabs.. Have you tried using the mostly de-fatted peanut flour to stretch your PB? We use the flour in lieu of protein powder for our sons in smoothies and banana-soft serve. I also sub it out for part of the flour in blondies/brownies. Yummmm.

We don’t have PB flour here in Ontario (as far as I know) I really want to try it!!

So just invite me for dinner and I’ll deliver a few cases! WV to Ontario can’t be thaaaat far, can it? :) We buy ours from Amazon or Vitacost. Not sure if there are delivery restrictions up your way or not. Worth smuggling some in your suitcase though next trip to the States. We tried both of these brands and think they are fairly similar and yummo: Bell Plantation PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter

Hey Becca, Good idea, I should have put an “after” chilling pic in…maybe I will take one and add it in for comparison!
Is it spreadable thick? yes I would say so. It’s not quite as thick as PB but still spreadable.

Love the idea to add protein powder! I’ll definitely be trying this (subbing almonds for the peanuts, of course… don’t want to kill myself) when I get my new food processor. I’ve been meaning to buy it for ages, but I can’t make up my mind between a Cuisinart or a KitchenAid! How do you like your Cuisinart model?

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) August 1, 2012 at 7:10 am

I like it overall…there are a few things that are annoying about it (like crumbs get stuck in the lid and sometimes liquids or flours comes out the back), but overall it processes like a champ. I used to have a kitchenaid and I didnt find it processed quite as good and I had probs with that one too, although maybe newer models have improved since 2010.

Yeh, the pb bombs! I made them again this afternoon for my sister and her sweettooth 8 year old little lady with a different dip: half cup vegan creamcheese, seeds of one fresh vanillapod, 1 banana, 2 spoons agave sirup. Mix with a mixer untill smooth. They loved it! Thanx for the inspiration!

This looks delish Angela! I love making peanut butter (and then eating by the spoonful lol). Must try this protein packed treat. I love your new blog layout. Very pretty!

Omigosh that looks great! I’ve been meaning to try making my own PB but have been putting it off. Now I will definitely have to try!

I was excited for an unflavored protein powder. But then when you said you needed to cover up the taste with sweetener….

I am not going to even try any more protein powders. They all taste so yukky. Even in a tiny amount in a big batch of something else.

Ahhhh you are amazing :) I just made this but with 1/2 c homemade pb, 4 tbsp chocolate protein powder, 2 tbsp cocoa powder, and 3/4 c coconut milk (mainly coconut because that’s all I had). It came out AMAZING! Thank you for such a great idea and recipe!!

I love your site and have made many of your recipes. I made this one tonight and thought it was a dessert and divided into two jars and ate one! Now I’m having a closer look and realize this is a nut butter recipe, do you use this as an oatmeal topping? Have I just consumed 1000 grams of fat lol?! It tasted great though!

Hi Angela,

Thank you so much for this post, I can’t wait to make my first homemade peanutbutter! Do you know how many grams 2 cups of peanuts approx. is? I’m not used to the cup system and looking on the internet to buy some cheaper peanuts. Thanks again! :) PS. I also love the idea of chia jam, gonna try it soon!

Forget spread this on something or swirling it in something — this stuff is amazing with a spoon! Thanks for the great recipe!

This looks incredible! I absolutely love nut butters, but definitely (try to) enjoy them in moderation. Adding the protein powder is a genius idea – I can’t wait to try it!! Thanks for your creativity!

My son is allergic to almonds, so I’ll have a go with coconut milk instead [doesn’t like soy] but I hope it doesn’t make it too sweet. Lovely idea. Thank you.

Great idea! I can’t wait to try it. Do you know how to make it into powder, too? I’ve been looking for recipes on how to make natural protein powder. Please help!

Hi– I just found your awesome recipe!! I want to make homemade almond butter with protein powder….so I put almonds in a food processor, then once it turns into the butter texture add the protein powder? How much do you think?

Thanks!!!
