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!

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?

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.

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.

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.

Yield 8 ounces
Serving Size

Ingredients

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

Instructions

  • 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.
  • Serve on toast, as a dip, or with a spoon.

  1. Best 2 ingredient recipe ever! Enjoyed this yesterday with graham crackers and pretzels. I can’t wait to try it on a chocolate chip bagel!

  2. Fab recipe!!! Defo want to try this!! If I was to make it and store in a kilner jar how long could I keep/use it for? Not that I’m expecting it to last very long!!! Lol!!!

  3. Hi. First time I pass by this blog….. Sorry for the English is not my first language…. Anyways …. I have a sillly question ….

    Do you put away the white thing that the cookie have? ….. Btw thanks so much for posting all the recipes …

    Saying hi from the north of Mexico :)))

  4. This sounds decadent!! I’m thinking of using Nutter Butters and peanuts for a “double good” peanut butter!

  5. OMG- I made this and it is sooooo good!! I used regular peanuts and sugar free Oreos because my husband can’t have sugar. It’s amazing! Thanks so much for the idea!!

      1. 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!

      2. 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. 🙂

  6. 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

    1. YEah, this was my thoughts exactly. Especially since Oreos are so unhealthy, full of sugar and GMOs. I think, maybe if you want that flavor there’s some way to make your own with cacao, coconut oil/butter, and some kind of natural sweeteners and flavors… but then I guess it wouldn’t be as easy as throwing cookies and peanuts in a food processor. I just think the sugar content alone negates any benefit you get from the protein. You might as well have peanut butter ice cream, right? Lol. But, it certainly looks good for a DESSERT—and that’s all I’ll call it.
