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?
- On pancakes or waffles
- In some oatmeal (overnight or hot)
- As a topping for our Chocolate Protein Mug Cake or other cakes
