If you’re craving chocolate and love peanut butter then it’s time to try some of our Protein Chocolate Peanut Butter! This healthy homemade peanut butter recipe is easy to make, packed with all the right macros, and guaranteed to beat those chocolate cravings!

Unless you’ve mastered a secret technique to make homemade peanut butter without one, you’re going to need either a food processor or really powerful blender for this recipe. This is the food processor I use and recommend.

Add into your food processor or blender 16 ounces of unsalted dry roasted peanuts and process or blend them. This should take no longer than 1-2 minutes or until they start to turn creamy.

Chocolate Peanut Butter

Once creamy, add in 1 teaspoon of instant coffee, 3 tablespoons of cocoa powder, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 2 tablespoons of your choice sweetener or 1 tablespoon of honey (adds more sugar to the recipe), 3 scoops of a chocolate protein powder, 4 tablespoons of melted sugar free chocolate chips, and 1 tablespoon of peanut oil.

Did you know that cocoa powder has no sugar in it and 2 grams of fiber for every 10 calories?

Process or blend all of those protein chocolate peanut butter ingredients together until smooth.

Distribute your peanut butter into whatever you’re storing it in like some of these mason jars and enjoy.

You can eat this peanut butter by itself or use it to add healthy fats and protein to other recipes. Some of my favorite ways to eat it?

    Love your site and cannot wait to try some of these recipes! I’m making the black bean brownies tonight…and might just top them with this chocolate peanut butter for frosting! Pumped to be able to still hit goals and not feel like I’m missing out on the “good stuff”. You’re a rockstar 🙂

    This recipe is the one that made me go out and buy a processor. I made it in a blender and it was good. I afterward made it in the food processor and it was so much better! I use this peanut butter on everything now. Thanks!

    This is great! I used cheap protein and it didn’t blend well but still tasted great! Do I have to refrigerate this? And how long does it stay good for? I would like to see a protein Nutella! That would put me in heaven! Great job, I love the recipes!

    If you wanted to make more of the chocolate peanut butter….I’m talking in quantity…..would you double the ingredients?
