I’ve had some major, and I mean M-A-J-O-R, Peanut Butter cravings lately. I think Pinterest is mainly to blame for this. Everytime I’m on Pinterest, which is a lot of the time, I get bombarded with food-coma inducing peanut butter desserts. If Pinterest was sooo amazing to the point where you could just tap on a picture and have the food appear in front of you, I would easily be a 500lbs woman. Almost all vegan peanut butter desserts are drool-worthy (there’s a couple weird ones) but there are a select few that just make me scream AH-MAZING!
Today I will have the pleasure of introducing you to some of these incredible peanut butter creations. First though, I need to get something off my chest…
For some reason peanut butter has a bad rep. I think for the most part those “bad for your health” peanut facts are coming from those thinking we all consume peanut butter with added hydrogenated fat. Even worse than your “standard” peanut butter is low-fat peanut butter. Most people are aware of the fact that peanuts are mainly made of fat, so when companies make a low-fat peanut butter, they strip away the healthy peanut fat and have to replace it with sugar and carbs. So for all those on a health journey…eat peanut butter from 100% peanuts. Better yet, make your own!
If you still have a little devil sitting on your shoulder telling you to stay away from peanut butter then check out these vegan peanut butter desserts. Then, tell that little devil to kiss your healthy, vegan, peanut butter-eating ass! :)
PS: Those recipes that are gluten-free are marked GF.
Peanut Butter, Banana, and Chocolate. Always a winning combination!
The brilliant part about these peanut butter cups is that they are no-bake and only have 6 ingredients!
The picture speaks for itself. Oh, and so does the fact that it’s got hot fudge in the title!
CHOCOLATE.PEANUT.BUTTER.MOUSSE…need I say more?
I’m a sucker for peanut butter blossoms since my Grandma always made them for Christmas. Sorry Grandma, these might actually be better than yours :) No flour and only 6 ingredients!
Possibly the easiest peanut butter treat around. Excuse me…I need to make this right now!
This tart covers all the bases. It’s raw vegan and gluten-free and I just want to plant my face in it :)
We could always use more protein in our diets so this is perfect. Made with almond milk and topped with raw cacao nibs.
1 of these bars are a staggering 18g of protein! Now, that’s a real vegan protein bar!
Last but not least, fudge. Chocolate fudge layer topped with a peanut butter fudge layer topped with crunchy peanuts = Heaven!
