45+ Peanut & Peanut Butter Recipes

Peanut Butter_

So…. welcome to the longest post I’ve ever written. Naturally, it’s a a post about peanut butter. On several different occasions, I’ve honestly considered changing over the name of my website to Sally’s Peanut Butter Addiction. But I don’t want anyone to feel left out. I also love almond butter, pecan butter, pumpkin butter, cookie butter, sunflower seed butter… pretty much all butter.

Peanut Butter gets along with just about everyone. Chocolate , jelly, white chocolate, butterscotch, Nutellabananacoconutcaramel, pretzels, cookies & cream, sprinkles, applemarshmallow, & cinnamon. Just to name a few. As I sit here with my nightly blogging snack – a spoon and a jar of (you guessed it) peanut butter – I’m taking a walk down peanut butter memory lane in honor of National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day on March 1st. Let’s  get this started! 🙂

45+ Peanut & Peanut Butter Recipes

 1) Homemade Honey Roasted Peanut ButterThis homemade peanut butter has only 1 ingredient, no added oils, and takes less than 4 minutes. It’s my favorite peanut butter and I make it all of the time. Besides baking with it, I like to dip apples and baby carrots in it. And spoons. Always spoons.

2) 1 Giant Reese’s Pieces Peanut Butter CookieThis easy 20-minute recipe makes 1 giant peanut butter cookie. Enough to indulge by yourself or share with a kiddo, friend, or sweetheart. It’s thick, soft, and loaded with peanut butter, Reese’s Pieces, & chocolate chips.

3) Chocolate Peanut Butter Saltine ToffeeToffee and chocolate and crackers and peanut butter? Trust me on this! It’s a homemade toffee recipe that’s so easy. Paired with salty crackers and the might chocolate & peanut butter duo. This stuff is always called “crack.” Addicting. Peanut Butter and toffee together is underrated. Try it!

4) Salted Peanut Nutella Puppy ChowThere’s no peanut butter in my favorite puppy chow recipe, but there sure is a lot of salty peanuts. Paired with decadent Nutella and sweet confectioners’ sugar. I made 2 huge batches of this stuff in 7 days. Warning: you will NOT be able to stop munching on this!

5) Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Oatmeal BarsA healthy recipe. This easy recipe combines mashed bananas, peanut butter, and oats together to make one nutritious snack or breakfast. I make them quite often with all different kinds of add-ins like chocolate chips, dried fruit, or nuts. The recipe takes 20 minutes start to finish. No butter or oil and can easily be made vegan.

6) Peanut Butter M&M CookiesMy go-to peanut butter cookie recipe. Everyone loves them! The recipe is straightforward and simple and bakes up the thickest, softest peanut butter cookies ever. In fact, I have used this same cookie dough recipe in many of my peanut butter cookie recipes. Check out what all the fuss is about!

9) Brownie Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Chip Cookie BarsI give all credit for these insane monster bars to Kevin. He came up with the idea to layer soft homemade chocolate chip cookies with peanut butter cups,  homemade fudge brownies, and dark chocolate chips.

Monster Bars - aka Brownie Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars. Best dessert bars you could ask for!-3


10) Rolo Stuffed Peanut Butter CookiesI stuffed my go-to peanut butter cookie recipe with Rolos! Look at all of that gooey, oozing caramel. I can’t think of a better way to eat a rolo candy…

11) Caramel Apple Peanut Butter Oatmeal BarsGooey caramel, peanut butter, juicy apples, and wholesome oats are all combined in this healthier oatmeal bar recipe. I love peanut butter and apples together. And I love the two together even more when caramel joins the party. These are so easy to make!

12) Chocolate Frosted Reese’s Puffs TreatsI didn’t eat too much Reese’s Puffs cereal when I was growing up, but somehow they became the base of an extraordinary no-bake marshmallow bar last summer. Topped with chocolate fudge and Reese’s Pieces, these bars are so easy it’s scary. PS: Reese’s Puffs may just be the best cereal on earth.

13) Ultimate Fudge Brownies with Peanut Butter ChipsHoly heck. If you’re looking for the BEST homemade brownie recipe, you’ve come to the right place. These brownies taste like pure fudge. Like thick dark chocolate frosting you can pick up with your hands. And I obviously stuffed them with peanut butter chips. Ditch those box mixes!

14). Peanut Butter & Jelly GranolaDefinitely an underrated granola recipe on my website. I make this stuff quite often with all different flavors of jam. I love peanut butter and jelly together. And would you believe me if I told you I may love PB&J together more than PB & chocolate? It’s the truth. Each crunchy, clustery, wholesome bite is packed with America’s favorite sandwich flavors.

15) Peanut Butter Trail Mix BarsI LOVE trail mix. And you want to know what I love even more? A wholesome, healthy, EASY no-bake granola bar loaded with peanut butter and crunchy, chewy, chocolate-y trail mix. I like to keep a stash of these bars at the office to get me through the work day! And these can easily be made vegan.

16) Cookies & Cream Peanut Butter BarkIf you haven’t tried Oreos and peanut butter together… please run, don’t walk… to the nearest kitchen. You have to make this no-bake bark/dessert. It’s messy and fabulous and addicting. Cookies & cream crust, creamy peanut butter filling, chocolate shell and crumbled Oreos on top. Wow.

17) Peanut Butter Cupcakes with Dark Chocolate FrostingThe most peanutbutteriest cupcake you will ever taste in your life. Moist, soft, fluffy – I’ve never had a peanut butter cupcake or cake like this before. It’s unreal. And the dark chocolate frosting? Oh my heavens. Readers have told me they want to eat the frosting with a spoon! And so do I…

18) Reese’s Pieces Peanut Butter BlondiesMy first post! Naturally, it included peanut butter. Imagine a truly fudgy brownie. Now replace the chocolate flavor with peanut butter. Yep, these blondies are SO dense and rich, just like brownies.



19) Skinny Frozen Peanut Butter PieI made this pie for Kevin’s birthday and felt like I ate the entire thing myself. Made with lighter ingredients, we (or I) didn’t feel so guilty digging in! It’s creamy and bursting with peanut butter. Plus, it’s made in the freezer! No baking here.

23) Nutella Swirl Peanut Butter Banana BreadThis is the most decadent bread I’ve ever made in my entire life. Each bite is thick, dense, and incredibly moist. The bread is flavored with bananas and peanut butter. Then I add peanut butter cups and a thick (very thick!) Nutella swirl on top. I mean, just look at it!!

24) Chocolate Covered Pretzel Peanut Butter BrowniesI’m ridiculous and so are these brownies. I can never stop at just one layer.

26) Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Blondie HeartsThese purely vegan peanut butter blondies are topped with crunchy peanuts and chocolate chips. AND a chocolate drizzle. I made them for Valentine’s Day one year, but there’s always a time for a heart shaped blondie, right?!

Whole Wheat Peanut Butter Blondie Hearts. So soft, so chewy, so full of peanut butter flavor. You won't even realize these are lightened-up!


27) Healthy Peanut Butter Chunk Oatmeal BarsThese are for serious peanut butter lovers. Each bite tastes like pure peanut butter. They are healthy, have relatively low sugar, vegan, and whole wheat. I make these ALL of the time. My favorite oatmeal bar in the world.

  1. This is such an amazing list. And I love the new recipe index! I want to add pictures to mine soon, but it took me long enough to get an index up at all. Might be awhile.

  2. Soooo glad you have a peanut butter obsession. It benefits us all 😀 Now I need to set about three weeks so I can make every single one of these 🙂 But really, I will make some of them (the Valentines blondies are so cute and look delish!), and Ill be sure to let you know when I do!!!

  3. Just made your ‘1 giant reese’s pieces peanut butter cookie’ for my kids after school snack and all I can say is, wow! I get frustrated sometimes when making recipes from blogs because they don’t turn out but our cookie looked exactly like the picture and tasted sooo good! My kids were super impressed with me. Now all I have to do is decide what to make next…Thanks!!!

    1. Hey Laura! I’m so glad to hear that! This is a wonderful cookie to make for the kids too. Let me know any recipes you make next! Thanks Laura =)

  4. My dream line up! I also have a huge peanut butter addiction and every single one of these recipes look too good to be true.

  5. I’m not even the biggest peanut butter fan but I seriously want to make every single one of these!

  6. First item now on my shopping list is peanut butter, I think I am in heaven. I just don’t want any strange looks in the shop when all I buy is a basket full of the stuff!!! Thanks for sharing all these wonderful ideas, I can’t wait to get started on them 🙂

    1. I buy peanut butter in bulk because not only do I love it, but our dog LOVES it too. We go through SO much. I wouldn’t give you any strange looks that’s for sure. 🙂 Let me know what you bake first!

  7. Hello Sally lovely! Uh, I’ve just stumbled across your blog and I am absolutely, positively in awe of how gorgeous your recipes are! Every single cookie recipe looks perfect (so do all the others, but I am a bit of a cookie fiend!), especially your original soft cornstarch versions. I love the addition of all of the different chocolate, caramel, toffee and peanut butter chips (how cute are those ‘Sno-caps’?!) plus the peanut butter cups and other Hersheys products. *Big sob* unfortunately we can’t buy them here in Australia. I’ll just have to live vicariously through your website. Big congrats on your up-coming wedding too. My husband and I have been married for 18 months now and it’s the BEST decision we ever made. I love being a wife… and everything that comes with it (I think I follow an old school of thought!). Anyway, thanks for being amazing! Following you from now on! xx

    1. Hi there! Thank you so much for all the kind words! What a nice thing to read this evening. And thank you for following my blog. I’m so happy you enjoy the recipes, especially the cookies. They are my favorite thing to bake! Thank you for the congrats and a big congrats to you as well. Let me know what you bake sometime! Thankss again 🙂

      1. Aw, glad that it brightened up your evening (funny thing that, as it’s morning over here!). I bake similar things to you, but Australian versions are definitely a bit toned down in regards to chocolate chips, sugar, peanut butter and cheesecake inclusions! The whole pb&j/pb&choc thing hasn’t caught on properly here. We don’t have any chocolate bars with peanut butter and Hershey’s don’t really import here. We also have much less cinnamon influenced stuff. Aussies are big on oats, coconut, chocolate (but usually double choc or caramel choc), chocolate chip cookies (original version though, and usually more crispy ‘biscuit’ style) and lamingtons (sponge with choc and coconut). I cook a bit of a fusion between US and Aussie style. There are a few baked goods on my blog if you wanna take a look 🙂

  8. I just discovered this page, and man… I shouldn’t have come here. I’m gonna lose my house and my car spending all my money on peanut butter. 😉

    1. Haha! I know what you mean. I spend more money on peanut butter than I’d care to share! Krissy, you’ll have to let me know what you try first!
