I have to admit. I am a huge fan of peanut butter. Sort of like Claire on the series Lost. There are days when I could just dive into a jar and eat just that for the day.
Add to the peanut butter some chocolate, like many of these recipes do and that is a recipes for success.
Here are some of my favorite peanut butter dessert recipes. Some are just plain decadent, some are lightened up and some are for vegans. There is a peanut butter recipe for everyone here.
Just click on any of the images or links below to go to the recipes.
Nothing says decadent quite like these chocolate whoopie pies filled with peanut butter cream frosting. They will disappear in a flash but if you need some will power, freeze them and take out “just one.”
My daughter was home for Christmas this year and she is a vegan. I wanted to make a special treat for her so I came up with this easy to make vegan peanut butter fudge. It was very good, and my husband, who is not a big fudge eater, liked it too. It’s not too sweet.
This healthier peanut butter chocolate cookie recipe uses mashed bananas instead of oil. Very tasty and easy to make too.
These peanut butter oatmeal bars have a rich chocolate frosting. They are easy to make and so delicious!
I love no bake cookies. They are so easy to make, keep well and very tasty. This recipe is just the basic peanut butter no bake cookie. No frills. Just good taste!
Here is another vegan recipe. (I love to treat my daughter!) This one is a chocolate puff cookie with peanut butter filling. Non vegans will love them too!
No peanut butter dessert round up would be complete without a peanut butter chocolate fudge recipe. It’s rich, delicious, and easy to make.
Here is another no bake cookie. This time it’s a peanut butter and chocolate no bake cookie. This one is intended for vegans, but just substitute butter and regular milk for the Earth Balance and soy milk if you wish. But they are great (and healthier) just as they are.
That’s it folks. Now please excuse me while I go dive into my jar of peanut butter!
