Is Peanut Butter something you always have in the house? I never liked peanut butter sandwiches when I was a kid, but I love the creaminess and the flavor peanut butter adds to sauces and salad dressings, and of course it’s great for cookies and bars!
So here’s a collection of Recipes using No-Sugar Peanut Butter shout-out for the two favorite peanut butter brands I always buy! If you’re a fellow peanut butter fan who always has some peanut butter on hand, I hope you find something here that you’d like to try!
What No-Sugar Peanut Butters do I Recommend?
I loved this Adams 100% Natural Peanut Butter (affiliate link) from the first time I tried it. Now the chunky and smooth varieties are something I always have in my fridge to use for recipes where I’m using peanut butter in a sauce or dressing. I use chunky the most, but I buy Adams No-Stir Creamy Peanut Butter (affiliate link) to use in sauces! When I’m making Sugar-Free Peanut Butter Cookies or using peanut butter in a sweet treat of any kind, I prefer Skippy No-Sugar Added Creamy Peanut Butter (affiliate link).
What to do if Natural Peanut Butter has Separated:
When you bring natural peanut butter home from the store it will sometimes be separated with a layer of oil on top. When I’m ready to start on a new jar from the pantry, I put the peanut butter and oil into my food processor and pulse until the oil is completely combined. It’s a bit of a messy job, but completely effective. Keep natural peanut butter in the fridge once it’s been opened.
Sweet Treats using No-Sugar Peanut Butter:
Last year Kara and I worked on this recipe for Sugar-Free Peanut Butter Cookies to get a version that will work perfectly without being crumbly, and the new cookies are getting good reviews!
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars are a tasty treat to make ahead and keep in the freezer for those times when you just need something sweet!
