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.

Uh…this is genius, you realize that right? (Duh) I don’t have apple butter on hand right now but I DO have a few others until I can get/make some!

Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table October 2, 2012

I just saw someone post a jar of this from their Foodie Penpal… I was insanely jealous, but now I can just make my own… maybe with a pinch of cloves and nutmeg too? Brilliant idea!!!

I wonder if this would work with pumpkin butter? I have a bunch of pumpkin butter that I accidentally added too much spice to and need to mellow it out a bit.

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) October 2, 2012

I think it would for sure. I made something using Pumpkin butter for my cookbook and it turned out incredible!

Ali October 2, 2012

FYI- pumpkin butter mixed with peanut butter was amazing! I had to add just a touch of water because I don’t have a high speed blender or food processor but it was still wonderful!

You are a genius. This sounds so incredibly good – I think I might make jars of it as holiday gifts! Unless of course I eat it all, because fruit and nut butter were made for each other. :)

Amber October 2, 2012

Oh my goodness! I just happened to make something so similar to this the other week. I cooked down the pears and apples my friend gave me in the crockpot until it was smooth, drizzled in maple syrup, added almond butter, cinnamon, and salt. So Yummy on oatmeal!

Holly October 2, 2012

This looks great!
I’m looking into buying a food processor and I’ve been reading about the Cuisinart Mini Prep. Do you think the Mini is big enough to make a batch of peanut butter? What kind do you use? Thanks so much for any advice you can offer!

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) October 3, 2012

Good question Holly! I have a 14 cup cuisinart processor so I really couldn’t say. I would try asking the company to see if they know? Goodluck & let me know how it goes!

deonne October 2, 2012

Hi,

I just recently discovered your site and I’m having so much fun trying out the recipes. On Sunday, I made the creamy tomato basil sauce.. It’s is heavenly… I tweaked it a litte by adding portabello mushrooms in the pan while the garlic was roasting and I served it over zucchini past, but I think I’m addicted to it.. Thanks so much for your site.

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) October 3, 2012

Hey Deonne, That is so great to hear! Thanks for letting me know. :) Good call on adding the mushrooms, I will try that soon.

In the picture of the peanut butter, is that a spoon that looks like a branch? Kind of want/need that!
