Homemade Snickerdoodle Peanut Butter for #SundaySupper

Last year was the year of the spoon.

I had my spoon in everything and anything delicious that could be spread, dipped, or straight-up eaten. Hummus, jelly, cookie butter, sweetened condensed milk, ice cream, and of course…

Peanut butter. Did I mention that the bottom of my mouth and the sides of my tongue have started swelling a bit when I eat peanut butter too many days in a row now? Because they do. I get the vague feeling (as I sit here with my spoonful of peanut butter hanging out of my mouth) I should be cutting back. Three words: Denial solves everything.

This year, however, I have made a resolution. A good one. One that will make me a fundamentally better human being who is in touch with her fundamentally good human side.

This year, I declare 2015: the year of the finger foods.

Because really, wasn’t that what fingers were made for? Scraping out the very last drop of peanut butter from those hard-to-reach spots at the bottom of a cylindrical jar? And you even get ten uses–one for each finger–before you have to wash them! It’s like the Supreme Creator attached handy portable sampler spoons on the ends of our hands for this very purpose.

Human creation. They really did think of everything. Now all I need is a retractable wings and a manual-speed metabolism with overdrive, and this new year will be a breeze.

I really didn’t start making homemade peanut butter until my friend gifted me a food processor at the end of my first year in grad school. If you know me at all, my lack of kitchen appliance ownership probably wouldn’t surprise you since I didn’t learn how to boil an egg until about junior year of college.

That’s when the finger-tasting obsession started: suddenly I was struck by a realization that the warm, liquidy goodness at the bottom of the food processor bowl could be scraped up and enjoyed right on the spot, and–what was more–that I could apply the same logic to most things that come in jars!

They let me into grad school for a reason, ya know. Peanut butter probably wasn’t one of them, though.

So this year I resolve to put an end to all silly resolutions before they start, except one. This year, I resolve to be big, bold, loud, and proud with my finger-tasting gluttony. No more lurking in shadowy corners and hiding dirty spoons in random places around the apartment because my friend has just walked in on me with a jar of peanut butter.

This year I resolve to lick every last jar clean and watch the person across from me with steady eyes as I do it. Amen.

Making homemade peanut butter is a whirl: all you need is some peanuts and one of those handy tasting spoons (er, fingers) to press the Grind button on your food processor. You can add awesome ingredients–like a handful of white chocolate chips and cinnamon–to trasnform regular PB into extraordinary homemade snickerdoodle peanut butter! And the best part is, you get all the finger-lickin’ goodness with way less guilt.

So what are you waiting for, finger-lickers? Let’s get this snickerdoodly party and new year started!

Homemade Snickerdoodle Peanut Butter for #SundaySupper

Easy as peanut butter! Just a handful of ingredients and you're well on your way to a light, easy spread for toast, bananas, sandwiches, yogurt, whatever! All the snickerdoodly taste with tons more protein and none of the guilt.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups peanuts (I use honey-roasted)
  • 1/4 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Combine all ingredients in a food processor and grind for approximately 4-5 minutes, scraping down the sides with a spatula as needed. Your peanuts will go from chopped, to a chunky thick mixture, to a ball (keep grinding!), to a fairly thin liquid paste.

  9. Seriously? Can I come live with you? Or if you need the room and you’re worried I’d take up too much space, simply send me a jar of that and I will leave you alone (Actually that’s not true because I know I’d come back for more!!) OMG! Love this!!

    • UM yes?! Can I just leave you in my kitchen with my food processor and let you make all the PB you want, so we can eat it by the jarful together?? :) you’re a total gem, Nicole–happy new year!!

  12. Oh, no, you better watch eating peanut butter. But I have a solution for you: almond butter. I actually – gasp – like it better than pb. Especially the Justin’s maple almond butter. It’s insanely good!

    • omgosh MAPLE almond butter? Yes yes yes! I am totally being good about the PB so far (ahem, it’s been about 48 hours) but you’re totally right, I love me some almond butter too! Cheerios, Laura!

  16. Okay, so I am one of those people who will walk out of the kitchen with nothing but a spoon full of peanut butter. I might just walk out with the spoon and the whole jar of this!

    • Oh gosh, then you’re so much better than I am if you can walk out with just a spoonful, Constance! I actually DO go through a whole mini jar of this in one day sometimes. Somebody seriously needs to invent self-sealing jars that won’t open after you’ve filled it, because seriously–self-control is nix with PB, eh??

  20. My daughter would love this! She is another spoon to mouth peanut butter lover. I used to send her jars upon jars of peanut butter in care packages when she as in school. That and ramen noodles LOL

    • Agh, I LOVE it!! Seriously, I could sit on your doorstep begging you for such awesome care packages :) the most my mum ever sent me in the mail was a pair of contacts I had forgotten at home by accident, haha. I bet she would loooove a surprise care package with homemade snickerdoodle pb, eh? xoxo

  23. Snickerdoodle… whaaa?? Why is this not in my kitchen now?!

  24. I just got a new food processor for Chanukah and really need to make my own nut butters! This sounds so yummy.

    • Ohhhh, you know exactly what to do then, Shaina–it’s totally fate! Good luck on your nut butter adventures, wherever they will take you (probably somewhere very, very yummy!).

  25. Don’t give up so easily on the spoon! ;) lol

  26. There are some gourmet peanut butters out there, and this one is right up at the top of the list in my opinion! So easy, but yummy!!

  28. This looks amazing! I will have to make it soon!

  29. Ive never ever made flavored peanut butters before but I have GOT to try it! I can’t eat it as often as I used to though. I’m super bummed.

    My kids say thank you for sharing this.

    • Awww no, you too? Well, we can commiserate together over a limited portion of this PB, I’m sure <3 And hah! Send my welcomes and a big fat jar of homemade PB to your kids for me, Dionne! ;)

  30. I love all of the gifs on your blogs…such fun photography! Pretending to stick out a finger and catch a little bit to snack on.

  31. OMG! Peanuts with choco chips? I’m in love already and love your theme for this year. You can picture me with tres leches when it comes to ‘finger foods’. Cheers to a nutty buttery finger licking good year, my friend!

  32. The Year of the Finger Food? I am in FOR SURE. Also, I need to start making homemade peanut butter. Because this looks so fab.

  33. I think 2015 is going to be a banner finger-licking good year for all of us. Just remember to remove the blade before digging into the food processor!!

    Great idea to add the white chocolate.

  34. Oh my gosh, I’m going to have to make jars and jars of this! My husband is going to flip!

  35. Double wow! This sounds AH-MAZING! Love the snickerdoodle flavour! Bookmarking, I cannot wait to try this drizzle over pancakes! :D

  36. Love this snickerdoodle peanut butter! It was definitely a hit at our house!

  38. I haven’t tried making my own peanut butter. I think I have to get my food processor out.

  39. This. Is. Just. Awesome. You’re a genius. That is all.

    :)

  40. Adding white chocolate is sooooo much better than just adding sugar, Ala! I could drizzle this over a lot of things!
