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.
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.
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.
Then add 1/3 c coconut and blend until smooth.
Enjoy with sliced apples, bananas, celery, pretzels, in oatmeal, by itself on a spoon….! It will probably taste good on anything.
