Peanut butter is underrated when it comes to assessing budget-friendly food items. Peanut butter can be used in SO MANY different recipes – both sweet and savory.
The recipes here are sweet peanut butter recipes. I’ve shared a recipe for peanut butter cookies made with homemade peanut butter (yes, you can easily make it at home with a food processor).
The peanut butter banana bites are a great healthy treat if you’re a fan of the classic combination of peanut butter and banana.
And the peanut butter truffles are a holiday favorite. I make these to give away as gifts, and also as a part of my typical holiday cookie spread.
But don’t stop at sweet when considering great peanut butter recipes. Peanut butter can be used to make a delicious Thai peanut sauce. Peanut chicken over rice, anyone?
African peanut stew is another great savory peanut butter recipe that may not be on your radar – but should.
And don’t forget about peanut noodles. The sauce is similar to a Thai peanut sauce, and can be added to different Asian noodles. Eat it hot or cold.
Get creative, and take advantage of the budget-friendly wonders of peanut butter!
