Black Magic Peanut Butter

Black Magic Peanut Butter - only 3 ingredients!

This recipe is CRAZY addictive.

One taste and you won’t be able to think of anything else.

Black Magic Peanut Butter

Yet it only takes about 30 seconds to make.

With no refined sugar… and it’s high in iron, calcium, and protein!

I wasn’t initially planning to post the recipe, as it’s almost too easy and you don’t even need to measure anything – it’s pretty difficult to mess this one up. However there was such an overwhelming number of requests when I mentioned it in my post on “Why I gave up running” that—as promised—I’ve gone ahead and measured the ingredients so as to come up with an actual “recipe” for this crazy addictive peanut butter spread that will have you reaching back into the jar again and again until suddenly there is none left!

Black Magic Peanut Butter - crazy addictive

Black Magic Peanut Butter

(3 ingredients)

  • 1/2 cup peanut butter (I like While Foods 365 crunchy)
  • 2 1/2 tbsp blackstrap molasses (or other liquid sweetener of choice)
  • 1/4 cup virgin coconut oil (for coconut-free version, see nutrition link below)

Melt the oil if it is not already in a liquid state. Then stir all ingredients together until they are fully blended. If a fudge-like texture is desired, freeze 15 minutes. Otherwise eat as desired, refrigerating leftovers… if there are any!

This recipe is like peanut butter on crack. It might be the most addictive thing you'll ever eat!

Question of the Day:

Are there any foods that, once you start, you’re unable to stop eating?

For me, that food would be peanut butter. My comment in a previous post that I could eat 1/3 of a jar in a single sitting was met with skepticism, but this is not an exaggeration! For others, that food might be potato chips or candy… I  also know quite a few people who consider Oreo cookies to be their kryptonite.

    I was seriously skeptical about this recipe. I mean, I like peanut butter, but I’m not nuts about it (haha). But I made this and you’re right; it’s some kind of magic. I don’t know if I really should thank you for posting this. You see, I don’t need to gain weight. *sigh*

  2. Kassi says

    I don’t know if you read comments on old posts, but, i tried this today. I actually made fresh peanut butter in my vitamix with molasses and coconut oil in the mix. IT was the most delicious peanut butter I ever tried. Mind blown. Thanks for posting this!

  3. Tammy says

    Yep, I know I sound like a genius for asking, but are you using refined or unrefined coconut oil? #ialreadyknowtheanswer #tooparanoidnottoask #totallynotweirdtousehashtagsinacomment

    I just made some more of this today. I have made it with everything. Today was a peanut butter, tahini combo. I am so addicted. I forced myself not to make any for about 4 days.I even put it with pistachio. It has never failed me. Thanks!

  5. Tarn says

    I am also TOTALLY addicted to peanut butter (the no sugar, salt or palm oil kind!), was snacking on banana chips spread with peanut butter the other day and realised that I’d eaten an entire jar in a week, whoops.

  6. Kathryn says

    I just made this. I followed the recipe to a T (I promise!), but it was nowhere near as dark as yours is. No matter- it’s delicious! I was going to make sandwiches for the kids and I, but thendiscovered it’s fantastic on strawberries! So I’m covering some berries and might make one sandwich 🙂 Thank you Katie!!

  7. Breanne says

    Katie, I adore everything you do. When in doubt, I come to you first. I figure if anyone can make a healthy version that tastes great, you can! This PB spread was so good… then I added cocoa powder and cinnamon! Oh…my…goodness. Keep in being awesome!

    Red Bean buns like then ones they sell at Fairways are things I can’t stop eating. I normally eat very little, but i find two or three disappearing before I know what happened. A bag of 12 is normally gone by dinner time the next day.

  9. Sherwood says

    I expected this to be a recipe involving nuts, oils, and a food processor. I hate appliances, so I ALMOST didn’t check this out. I am intrigued now and want to see how this goes in my daily PB&J. I eat better than pretty much anyone I know, but I don’t eat well enough to not want to pack every bit of nutrition into everything I make as I possibly can.

    I can’t think of anything in particular that I can’t stop eating. I am a raging texture fiend, so anything with an amazing texture hooks me.

    I love finding new ways to use molasses. Such a great idea. It would be delicious. I’m going to make it. I’m guessing my kids will love it too because we all love PB.

  11. DDB says

    Thanks for this simple recipe. It is a delicious way to get molasses into my diet because is full of minerals.
    Great for my grandkids who can’t have white sugar or dairy.
