My second recipe for the day wahoo! I’m on a role! Oh and can I just say that I think I outdid myself in the creativity department with this one! 😉 always tootin my own horn.
Oh and it’s totally clean. No added sugars. No added oils. Only wholesome goodness. Check it
Makes 16 servings (2 tbsp or about 33g)
3 cups raw peanuts
50g dried bananas (try to go for organic, sulfur free)
1 tsp banana extract
14g (or about 1/2 a square) unsweetened raw chocolate
1 packet of stevia (or more to taste)
Take all of your peanuts and place them on a cookie sheet. Roast the peanuts in the oven at 350 degrees until they are golden brown. Give them a few shakes as the outer ring of nuts tends to brown first. Once they have cooled a bit, place the peanuts (reserve 1/2 cup), the dried bananas, banana extract and stevia in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Be patient and you make need to scrap down the sides to help your blender out a bit. Once blended, chop up your chocolate and reserved peanuts and stir those into your smooth peanut butter. Jar it up and enjoy!
JUST REMEMBER this has no preservatives so keep it in the fridge. Also note that true chunky monkey style uses chunks of walnuts rather than peanuts, so if you have walnuts, swap out the reserved peanuts for some toasted walnut chunks.
For 2 tbsp (33g)
Not too shabby, more of a treat but hey, it’s allll natureeel.
