Oreo Peanut Butter

This is going to be your favorite new peanut butter! Oreo Peanut Butter has only two ingredients, and tastes so good you’ll wonder why it was missing from your life for so long!

Oreo-Peanut-Butter (4 of 6)w

So you may remember that I’ve been working with a trainer. I did 3 one-hour sessions and now I’m doing 8 half-hour ones because I didn’t want to sell my firstborn to pay for full hours.

Anyway, it’s always exciting figuring out what method of torture I’m going to be doing on a given day. Squats? Lunges? Side bends on the big ball? The exercises vary from session to session, but people. Friday’s workout took the cake.

In addition to other things, he had me do one legged squats. From sitting. To standing. Have you ever done those? If you’re thinking “that’s not too hard!” and you’ve never done them, go try. I’ll wait.

So, to give you a visual, he had me sit on a weight bench, with one leg on the floor and one leg out straight. Then he had me (without swinging my body) stand up on the one leg. Seriously, go try. Then do it 11 more times. Then repeat that twice.

After the first set he took pity on me. I think he thought I was going to have an aneurism or something, so he let me use a foam roller standing on end to push off of. Yeah…it was still hard. And doing it in front of the entire gym was fun too. I only caught one lady staring, but I was preoccupied. I’m sure there were others.

And, as an added bonus I haven’t been able to sit or stand effectively in three days. I can’t wait to meet with him again tomorrow.

One of the things he told me when we started our sessions was that I wasn’t eating enough protein in the morning. After that first meeting,  I went home and created Skinny Chocolate Muffins, so that I could have protein and fiber and chocolate for breakfast.

That got me to thinking though. Sometimes I like toast for breakfast. Or I like to slather something on my banana bread. Well, peanut butter is full of protein. And if I make my own peanut butter it’s way better for me because I know all of the ingredients, and there isn’t any oil or anything to make it more fattening.

Therefore peanut butter must be an acceptable breakfast food. And if peanut butter is okay, then Oreo Peanut Butter is even better, right?

Oreo-Peanut-Butter (1 of 6)

Have you ever made your own peanut butter? My friend Averie, over at Averie Cooks, does it all the time. Her original version actually made me want to try my own. Then she made one with butterscotch and I started drooling because I love butterscotch.

After making the Oreo Peanut Butter Popcorn last week, I had an abundance of Oreos left over. I remembered that my BFF Ashton made Oreo Butter awhile back, and I figured…why not make Oreo Peanut Butter?

Best. Decision. Everrrrrr.

Seriously, making your own peanut butter is so dang easy I don’t know why I waited this long to do it. I started with honey roasted peanuts because, well, they are the best if you ask me. But you can start with whatever kind you like.

Oreo-Peanut-Butter (2 of 6)

 

A food processor is best when making peanut butter, but I’ve heard you can also use a blender. I have a Cuisinart 12-cup food processor, and it’s newer, so it’s in good shape and really fast. If your food processor is smaller, or older, it may take a little longer to get to the peanut butter consistency.

This has two ingredients: peanut butter and Oreos. Process until smooth. The end.

Oreo-Peanut-Butter (5 of 6)

I made graham cracker butter in the past, and it was grainy, so I was worried about this Oreo Peanut Butter, but I needn’t have worried. The peanuts do something magical to the Oreos. It’s smooth and rich, just like a regular natural peanut butter. But there was no stirring needed – it stayed thick, probably because I didn’t add any oil to the mixture.

It was amazing on graham crackers. And on leftover pie crust chips. And on a spoon.

I also ate it on toast for breakfast and dipped apples in it for an after workout snack.

I’m not asking my trainer, but I bet he’ll totally approve it. I mean, it’s homemade peanut butter which means it’s healthy.

But, just in case he has a weird sense of “healthy” like he has a weird sense of “squats” maybe we just keep this between us, mmkay?

Seriously. Go make your own peanut butter. I’m being bossy, but you’ll thank me for it.

Oreo Peanut Butter

Yield: 8 ounces

Homemade peanut butter filled with Oreos. Cookie butter...only better!

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups honey roasted peanuts
  • 10 Oreos

Directions:

  1. Place peanuts and Oreos in a food processor and run continuously until butter forms. Time will vary depending on your food processors age and speed. Mine took about 4 minutes to reach a creamy, buttery consistency. If your processor is older, or starts to feel hot during processing, stop the machine and let it rest a few minutes before continuing.
  2. Serve on toast, as a dip, or with a spoon.

Notes:

If your mixture is too thick, you can add vegetable oil (about 1 tablespoon) to thin it.

    for the oreo butter, would you store it in the fridge?

    • Dorothy Kern replied on May 14th, 2013 at 7:03 pm

      I would, yes! Mine was on the counter for a few days, but I think it will last longer in the fridge!

    Hey lady!

    LOVE this idea, but…help! I tried this today, followed your directions exactly, but it came out more like a ball of soft Play D’oh than the glorious, spreadable stuff you made. I threw in some honey to try to smooth it out, which worked for consistency, tho the honey taste was overpowering. Many thanks for the great recipe. Your blog is beautiful!

      Hmmm. I wonder why? How long did you process it? Possibly it went too long? Let me know how long you think you processed. I’ll add this to the recipe, but a little vegetable (or even coconut) oil can help thin it out if it’s too thick! I’m so sorry it didn’t turn out for you!

    • Jessica replied on May 19th, 2013 at 2:06 pm

      The same thing happened to me. I turned the food processor off,broke up the ball,and continued do process it. It eventually became smooth.

        Thanks for commenting this Jessica! I think it depends too on the processor. Mine is newer, and super fast so it came together super quick. :)

    Be still my heart! This looks amazing. I’m trying to decide what a serving of this might be, and how many the recipe makes?! I guess it doesn’t matter if you’re going to eat the whole thing!! But just out of curiosity!! Thank you!

    • Dorothy Kern replied on August 4th, 2013 at 6:36 pm

      It makes about 8 ounces total! I’m not sure what a serving would be…probably a tablespoon? Or however much you wanted? 😉

    Wonder how it would work with almonds? Fiance has peanut allergies. He loves almonds and almond butter and oreos too. May have to try it.

    No doubt this will taste good but I cant imagine any trainer recommending you eat sugar and processed Oreos for breakfast. Just like you can buy chocolate peanut butter in the stores and its probably better than a lot of other things people eat but its still not a health food

    I wonder how it mixed with coolwhip and placed in a graham cracker crust would be…….

    Does the Oreo Peanut Butter store on the shelf or in the fridge? Can’t wait to make this! Thanks in advance!

      I would keep it in the fridge, just to be on the safe side! :)

        I should have asked this with the first question, lol…sorry :) What do you think the shelf life would be in the fridge? I’m thinking of making these for gifts and want to make sure I don’t make it too soon, thanks in advance!

        • Dorothy Kern replied on January 2nd, 2014 at 6:28 am

          I had it for a few weeks and it was fine! I’d say for sure no more than two, just check it after awhile to make sure it’s not growing something. :)
