This isn't really a recipe more a tip but I love the fancy Nut butters I get a bit bored of the plain PB, The problem is they are so expensive.
400g Tubs for £8 that sort of thing.
Anyway after some research I decided id make my own. Its so simple. You lay out a bit of money at the start but you can make loads. Base Ingredients
I bought 4KG of Meridan Organic Peanut butter for £10 (see offers thread I posted it about a week ago). If no offers are on you can easily pick up a good PB for around £4 a kilo from one of the bulk suppliers.
Anyway next I bought 500g or organic cacao powder from Amazon for £6. 500g grams lasts you ages you only need about 10g per 400g jar for a strong Chocolate taste. You will also need some more oil as I like to experiment and add things or it will be to dry otherwise. You only need a small bit ,I use coconut oil or almond oil. Asda sell a runny coconut oil for a couple of quid. CREATION
How to create your base. Put some peanut butter in a jar and add some Cacao , oil and something to sweeten and mix it . Simple. BASE
I used old jars added the PB and Cacao and thats the base. Now the Chocolate is bitter so to sweeten I used agave syrup but you can use honey or maple syrup. The taste is fantastic. Experiment
Once you have a chocolate base (obviously you dont have to use Chocolate but thats what im using as its a great taste and very healthy)
Ive now made some jars adding organic desiccated coconut making a lovely Choc coconut PB.
also a sort of super food type thing Chia seeds, flax, protein powder Choc PB.
Maple syrup and Cinnamon is a another.
Ive made a sort of unhealthy one adding small marshmallows and crushed up ritz salty biscuits makes it a Smores PB just gorgeous on a toasted bagel.
The list is endless and so simple and you have total control of what goes in.
