Vegan peanut butter chips – healthy and homemade!
Less than a minute to make… and they literally MELT in your mouth!
More addictive than the most addictive thing you’ve ever eaten. these homemade peanut butter chips are also healthier than packaged chips (no partially-hydrogenated oils, refined sugar, artificial flavors, or corn syrup solids in these vegan peanut butter chips), and they taste a million times better.
You only need 3 ingredients!
However, you will want to eat them all without sharing, so be sure that you plan accordingly. (Do you remember Earl, my alligator friend who protects my food? I’m now willing to rent him out to whomever offers me the most chocolate in return. Let the bidding commence.)
- 4 tbsp virign coconut oil or cacao butter (40g)
- 8 leveled tbsp peanut flour (PB2 or Betty Lou’s) (48g)
- 1 tbsp pure maple syrup (14g) (For a sugar-free version, replace the maple syrup with 1 extra tbsp oil and stevia drops to taste.)
Peanut butter chips recipe: Melt the first ingredient if it’s not already liquid. Combine all ingredients in a bowl, and stir well to form a paste. (Note: I personally much prefer the taste of the chips when made with coconut oil. However, use the cacao butter if you wish to bake with the chips.) Smooth into candy molds or onto a sheet of wax or parchment paper, and freeze until solid. If using the wax/parchment option, break chips into pieces once fitm. The coconut version of these vegan peanut butter chips should be stored in the freezer; the cacao butter version can be stored in the fridge, freezer, or at room temperature.
Question of the Day:
Do you ever worry about food thieves?
When someone in his office stole Ross’s sandwich (on Friends), I figured it was just exaggerated slapstick comedy. But in my first year of college, I learned those types of food thieves really do exist. Girls in my dorm took to writing on their containers, “I have a cold. Steal my food and you’ll get my germs,” yet the thieves still persisted. My roommate says it happens in her office as well, with people routinely taking coworkers’ lunches. Thankfully, the only one who ever steals my food nowadays is Henry.
