White Chocolate Cinnamon Coconut Peanut Butter

I’ve been craving peanut butter lately.

But let’s be real…when am I not?

At first I was planning on making fresh peanut butter using peanuts as the one and only ingredient.

just peanuts.

But then, my roommates love for white chocolate got me thinking….

Why not make my own version of White Chocolate Wonderful? Without the added sugars and oils so it’s “healthier,” right? 😉

And of course, white chocolate wasn’t enough so I added coconut and cinnamon to add my own little twist.

heaven in a jar.

White Chocolate Cinnamon Coconut Peanut Butter

1 1/2 c peanuts (I used unsalted)

1 tsp vanilla

1/2-1 tsp cinnamon

1/3 c white chocolate chips, melted

1/3 c unsweetened shredded coconut

Add peanuts to a food processor (I used my Vitamix) and blend until a thick nut butter forms. It took me about a minute in the Vitamix but it will probably take longer in the food processor. Turn off the processor, add the vanilla and cinnamon and melted white chocolate.

add the cinnamon and vanilla

mix in the melted white chocolate…ohhmyygawd the best part

Then add 1/3 c coconut and blend until smooth.

in goes the coconut!

Enjoy with sliced apples, bananas, celery, pretzels, in oatmeal, by itself on a spoon….! It will probably taste good on anything.

and don’t blame me when the whole jar is gone in 2 days…
