I use to be terrified of peanut butter. I know right… what an odd ball.
I felt like my tongue was going to be stuck to the roof of my mouth every time I ate peanut butter and it made me panic. I’m assuming that this goes along with my fear of having my arms and legs pinned down and not being able to move them haha.
I seriously panic.
I could handle a peanut butter and jelly sandwich (with a ton of jelly) and I could tolerate peanut butter and chocolate milkshakes but that was about it.
I’ve gotten a lot better about the peanut butter freak-outs haha and now I’m happy to say that I can drink a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake, eat a chocolate peanut butter cup and dip apple slices in peanut butter with no major panics haha.
Big Bear on the other hand is a die-hard peanut butter fan. He could probably just sit down with a spoon and a jar of peanut butter and just be happy as can be.
Also, his love of peanut butter and chocolate is huge! If I’m trying to think of a dessert to make for him, I know that anything peanut butter and chocolate is going to be a hit!
While I’ve made tons of desserts with peanut butter for BigBear, up until recently I hadn’t actually tried to make peanut butter for him.
Growing up, peanut butter came out of a jar. It was just one of those things that you bought, you didn’t make it.
When I “grew-up”, I learned about places like Whole Foods where you could grind your own peanut butter in the store and I realized that homemade peanut butter couldn’t be all that difficult after all!
Of course you can use this same recipe to make regular peanut butter(just leave out the honey and cinnamon!) but you know that I can’t just let things be…normal. 😉 That would be kinda boring, wouldn’t it?
So, Homemade Honey Cinnamon Peanut Butter is what happened!
It’s still perfect for Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches, Banana and peanut butter sandwiches and its also fantastic for dipping apples and pretzels!
Ps. We totally got this idea for cinnamon peanut butter because we were watching some show on the cooking channel and this company was on there talking about their homemade peanut butter line and they were bragging about how their cinnamon peanut butter has like a mile long waiting list. So yeah, we had to try to make our own Cinnamon peanut butter after hearing that! 🙂
Oh and I almost forgot! You don’t need any fancy “peanut butter maker machines” to make this!
— wait… do they make fancy peanut butter grinders? I’m sure they do haha.
But all you need is a “high powered’ blender! Yep! Easy, homemade peanut butter made in a blender.
