Peanut butter dessert recipes are so convenient to make because it’s relatively inexpensive and you can find it in any grocery store all year round. Peanut butter is cholesterol free which is one of the best reasons to make more recipes that call for peanut butter. It is also very high in vitamin B6. When you buy peanut butter, always look for the brand that is all peanut butter rather than the one with additives like corn syrup, salt, canola or palm oil. If your budget allows, try to invest in an organic peanut butter. You can also stock up organic peanut butter when you see a good sale at your local grocery store. Alternately, if you have the time you can make peanut butter in your kitchen by pulverizing roasted peanuts until the natural oil oozes to help it become into a smooth butter-like consistency. You can store this peanut butter refrigerated for up to a week.
