Deliciously luscious peanut butter made at home with unsalted peanuts is a great source of monounsaturated healthy fats. Yes, that means it is actually good for you! Peanut butter is also a good source of protein. Coconut oil, added to the peanut butter to get a nice nutty taste, gives you healthy fatty acids of medium chain triglycerides.

It is always better to make your peanut butter at home as store-bought ones contain loads of sugar and hydrogenated vegetable fats, which are not good for you. It is also economical – you get super tasty and healthy homemade peanut butter at around half the cost of store-bought ones! Store your peanut butter in an airtight glass jar in the fridge, to make it last for around 15 days.

Scoop a spoonful and lick it up when you are hungry! You will surprised to know that a spoonful of peanut butter is actually a wise snack for weight-watchers as peanut butter has the right fats to keep you full for a longer time! Homemade Peanut Butter is a also a magical snack for endurance athletes as it easily digests into your blood stream and provides long sustained energy.

Other good dips and snacks to have are Homemade Almond Butter , Creamy Thick Curd Dip Using Jalapenos, Olives and Sun-dried Tomatoes and Hummus .

can I use normal coconut oil instead of organic?

Tarla Dalal    You can use normal coconut oil but, there will be a slight difference between the texture and flavour. The thing is regular coconut oil has undergone more refining which might result in the decrease of health benefits.

As i love fitness and run marathons, i tried this peanut butter recipe and it was tasty and healthy. Good to see no hidden sugar and vegetable oils. I snack with peanut butter often when hungry and have it in my office fridge and at home. Its super cheap to make and quick also. Even if your not exercising, eat this as it provides good fat and keep you healthy.
