40+ Ultimate Peanut Butter Dessert Recipe Collection

Peanut Butter and Desserts are as classic a flavor as Oreos. And we know about Oreos around here, check out our Oreo Collection.

The peanut butter we use on the site for our recipes is smooth, creamy peanut butter. We don’t use all natural “stir” variety nut butter as it can separate during baking and cooking.

We also use peanut butter chips in many of our recipes, these are a great way to bake with peanut butter with less moisture so the desserts can hold their shape easier.

Easiest way to measure peanut butter:

  1. Add jar to microwave on 30-40% power for 1 minute to warm the peanut butter enough that you can pour it out of the jar but not enough to make it hot.
  2. Spray your measuring cup with vegetable oil spray so you don’t have to scrape the peanut butter out.

  1. I have a question about the peanut butter muffin recipe you have in Dinner The Dessert.

    You say that creaming the “butter” is a critical step, but nowhere in the instructions do you cream the peanut butter (and there is no butter in the recipe). The PB is only heated in the microwave and then folded into the whipped eggs. Did you mean whisking the eggs is the critical part?

    Please explain, as I’d love to try making these.
