Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Peanut Butter

I’m sure many of you are PB & CO fans.

If you haven’t tried any of their peanut butters, go out and buy them. I promise you, they are amazing.

A few weeks ago I saw this in Publix.

I had only tried their Dark Chocolate Dreams before and have always been wanting to try more.

If you haven’t noticed I’m one of those nut butter fanatics.

Anyway, I knew I had to buy it.

Once I tried it, I died.

Literally.

It was gone very soon and lately I’ve been interested in making my own nut butter.

I’ve always wanted to try it but never realized how easy it really was.

 

I stumbled upon this recipe on Healthy Food For Living’s Blog.

I died again.

I knew I had to make it, and if you noticed on yesterday’s post I bought some peanuts and raisins at whole foods.

Make this now.

Now, I’m sure you will want to taste it while in the process of making it but here’s a tip.

It’s even better after you place in fridge overnight.

ENJOY!
