Honey Roasted Pretzel Peanut Butter

Hi Everyone,

I have been crazy busy this Fourth of July!  I cooked, baked, blogged and then did it all over again!!  I hope you like the goodies that I made for you!!  There just doesn’t seem to be enough time in the day to make everything I want, nor is my stomach big enough to handle it all!!   I normally blog what I eat for breakfast and dinner or a baked good for the week, but due to some crazy unplanned evenings I’m kind of falling behind on cooking.  So I apologize if some of my dishes are quick or the photos aren’t so great!  I’m really trying hard to get things done!!

Remember yesterday I said I was out of Peanut Butter?  I had and I mean had to make some!!  So today I made my latest peanut butter creation and I must say it is salty good!

Before I tell you about my Honey Roasted Pretzel Peanut Butter, I have a funny to show you that my Husband sent to me.  It made me giggle!

He he!!  I know, I know, I’m so geeky!!  I’ve been waiting two months to share this with you!  Today’s peanut butter is creamy, drippy, salty and sweet.  All the things I love all in one recipe.  I came up with the idea of using pretzels in my peanut butter from a local grocery store.  I saw a jar of it for $10.00 and thought that’s just crazy, why not make my own?  There’s had oil in it to, mine has just honey roasted peanuts, honey and pretzels.  So simple!!

This peanut butter is perfect for anyone who is craving salt with a tad hint of sweetness.  I am loving this PB!!  I thought it would be perfect to go in my yogurt and ice cream, plus dipping apples in it.  Of course I think it would still be good on a traditional PB & J sandwich!

Even though the Peanut Butter is drippy, it’s still pretty thick.  Out of all the nuts out there for making peanut butter, regular old fashions nuts are the best.  Almonds take a while to process and so do cashews.  The one thing I found between all the nuts is that peanuts process the quickest and it is the drippiest consistency with almonds coming in second.  Cashews are a wonderful sweet tasting nut butter, but it is thicker and doesn’t get as creamy as the others.  It’s my favorite nut butter for making raw cookie dough balls.   What is your favorite kind of nut butter?

  1. Do you refrigerate this peanut butter?

  2. This looks AMAZING! Thanks for sharing 🙂 My kids would love it!

  3. PB and pretzels are a wonderful combo, and even better slathered on a banana! Great, simple recipe, yum! I want to try just mixing a lot of nuts to make a “kitchen sink” butter and also just pistachios. But I agree with you, plain peanut butter is hard to beat!

  4. This looks delicious!! I love the salty sweet combination!

  5. YUM! The sweet salty combo sounds soooo good! Looks like we were on these same page this week the pretzel – pb thing! I just made some pb pretzel m&m bars 🙂

  6. Mmm peanut butter and pretzels go so well together too

  7. omg what a genius idea!

  8. mmm this post makes me hungry!

  9. Hi Jen,

    You linked up to My Sweet Party in June and your contribution was one of my top three favourites. It sounded amazing! Make sure to stop by my blog to read about it. My July party is now open and I hope you would like to join again.

  10. There’s something magical about homemade butter and this is surely no exception! Never imagined pretzels in my butter! 🙂

    Hi Jen,
    Your recipes are always so amazing, I look forward to seeing them & trying them. This was a HUGE hit, delish!!!! Thanks!

  12. Yummy! Love pretzels and PB so a perfect combo.

  13. I’ve never made my own peanut butter, but this looks great. I love that you used honey roasted and pretzels. Two of my favorite things!

  14. This looks absolutely amazing. I love that your described it as salty and sweet, it’s totally up my alley!

  15. Pretzels in the peanut butter….brilliant! This sounds so delicious! Thank you for sharing at Fit and Fabulous Fridays Jennifer!

  16. This recipe has been in my “to make” file for a while and, yesterday, I finally got around to it. I only had cinnamon crisp pretzels, so that’s what I used. Absolutely delicious! The honey roasted peanuts with the hint of cinnamon is a delicious combination! I also used NuNaturals stevia drops instead of honey for a small calorie savings. The problem is that I couldn’t stay out of this!

    • Oh my gosh!! I make this recipe all of the time!! It’s my favorite. I love that you added cinnamon crisp pretzels to it, that sounds amazing!!! I have to try that for sure!!! My Husband and I I almost ate a batch of this one night while watching tv! I have to say it’s probably one of my favorite peanut butter recipes of all time!!

  17. I just got a new food processor and this is the first thing I tried. I couldn’t believe how easy it was, and man, was it good! Nothing beats fresh, still warm peanut butter on a pretzel. Hard to stop eating! Thanks for all the great recipes!
