I have yet another way to feed the fruit and nut butter addicts of the world.
That would be me.
And possibly a few of you!
Aside from slathering apple butter on toast and muffins, swirling it into oatmeal, baking with it, and eating it with a bog ‘ol spoon, this recipe today takes it to a whole new level.
Apple butter and peanut butter were destined to be together, don’t you think?
Add a healthy dose of cinnamon with a touch of vanilla and maple syrup and you have one of my favourite butters of all time. It’s a little sweet and ultra creamy, with a hint of tart apple to round it all out.
I’m surprised at how little peanut butter I had to use to create such a creamy butter – 3 parts apple butter to 1 part peanut butter. As a result, we’re left with a rich butter that’s a lot lighter than traditional peanut butter.

My favourite way to enjoy this butter is paired with a sliced apple. Its my current go-to snack.
