So you probably already know by now that I love peanut butter. Whipped peanut butter, Reese’s Peanut Butter Spread (swoon), and almond butter. But…back to peanut butter.
It’s my one true, spreadable love. I love it in ice cream, it’s amazing in smoothies, and it’s the perfect touch to banana bread.
But even better than that, it makes my spoon happy. You know, because I eat it straight from the jar more than spreading it on toast or adding it to baked goods. Tell me you’re the same way, too?
When I was little, my dad used to make me peanut butter sandwiches for my school lunches. Skip the jelly and just pile on the peanut butter, please!
And now that I’m older, my love for peanut butter is even stronger. I slather it onto toast, dip my apples into it, or just eat a spoonful straight out of the jar every day. Yep, it’s just that good.
So I guess it’s no surprise that I finally had to take on the task of making my own peanut butter. It’s been on my bucket list of recipes to make for quite some time, so I finally caved and gave it a whirl.
And guys, I came up with the best spread! This Maple Cinnamon Peanut Butter is jam-packed with honey roasted peanuts, sweet maple syrup, and a touch of cinnamon.
It’s creamy, delicious, and contains just three ingredients! And you really can’t get much better than that, right?
I’m kicking myself for not making this Maple Cinnamon Peanut Butter sooner. It’s one of the easiest recipes that I’ve ever shared with you and it takes just minutes to make.
And best of all, you let your food processor do all the work! So after it works it magic, you’re left with a smooth and creamy peanut butter spread, filled with maple and cinnamon flavors.
This Maple Cinnamon Peanut Butter is the perfect spread to top your toast, spread onto your sandwiches, swirl into some oatmeal, or my favorite, devouring with a spoon. One bite and you’ll forget about the store-bought kind!
