Vegan Peanut Butter Chips

Homemade vegan peanut butter chips – without all the artificial ingredients: 


These homemade peanut butter chips take less than a minute to make…

And they literally MELT in your mouth!

But be warned: they are quite possibly more addictive than the most addictive thing you’ve ever eaten.

Making your own vegan peanut butter chips is a much healthier option than picking up a package of peanut butter chips from the store:

There are no partially-hydrogenated oils, refined sugar, artificial flavors, or corn syrup solids in these vegan peanut butter chips, and they honestly do taste a million times better.

Once you try homemade, you will never go back!


You only need 3 ingredients for these melty pb chips.

However, you will want to eat them all without sharing, so be sure that you plan accordingly.

Do you remember Earl, my alligator 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.

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.

Vegan Peanut Butter Chips


  • 4 tbsp virign coconut oil or cacao butter (40g)
  • 8 leveled tbsp peanut flour (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)


*To make them look exactly like real peanut butter chips, I recommend this Chocolate Chip Candy Mold.

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 firm. 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.

      If you use the cacao butter version, I think it would work. Maybe not outside, in the middle of the summer, but if you’re indoors it should be fine.

  1. Sara says

    YUM, I love just about anything with PB in it!! These look so tasty, and its amazing how cute they turned out considering there is only 3 ingredients! Looks like you spent half a day making them in a confectioner’s shop!

  2. [email protected] OmNom Love says

    These look amazing! I can’t wait to try them! But I have a peanut allergy, so I’ll try making these with sunflower seed or almond flour and report back. 🙂
    The only food thief I have to worry about is my friend who likes to check my lunch box at school. Sometimes, my chips like to mysteriously disappear…. 😉

  3. Kitty Bea says

    Why would I want to make the more addictive recipe than the most addictive thing I’ve ever eaten? XD jk, this recipe looks like a keeper. 😀

  4. Caitie says

    First thought when I saw these: “Oooh, I bet those would be good to melt into some oatmeal!” (Since I already like PB2 in my overnight oats. Second thought: O.O For once, I have EVERYTHING I need for this at home. Must make now! XD Sounds like an awesome idea. I can’t wait to try it out. 😀

  5. Lisa says

    Ohhh what a fabulous idea! I’ve only done this with cacao powder and coconut oil, but never thought of peanut flour. Love it.

  6. Anna @ Your Healthy Place says

    Ooh I love that you made these with peanut flour! I can only imagine how melt-in-your-mouth they are – coconut oil has that effect on everything. Amazing!

  7. Caitie says

    First thought when I saw these: “Oooh, I bet you could melt one or two of these into your oatmeal and it would be awesome!” (As I usually enjoy my overnight oats with PB2). Second thought: “O.O For once, I actually have EVERYTHING I need to make something. Must make now!” Haha, it sounds like a pretty cool idea. Can’t wait to try it out. 😀

  8. Rebecca says

    Oh my goodness, this recipe just made my day! I had all the ingredients (I went with the coconut oil) on hand and I’m about to eat the entire batch without sharing! They are so yummy!

  9. Hannah says

    I want this. 0_0

    Food thieves? Only when I’ve got one of these recipes cooked up in my freezer, then yes, I definitely worry about food thieves! 😉 Only my mother and sisters, though.

  10. Clarissa says

    These look amazing!! Could you please make butterscotch chips??

    Also, do you think you can bake with these chips, or are they strictly for snacking?

  11. Sarah McBride says

    Theses are really creative and look awesome! Thanks for putting this one out there : ) My old job had food thieves, once you get over the grossness, its pretty funny!

  12. Sadye says

    I don’t worry about food thieves, though one did steal half of my lunch once. I sort of had to laugh, because the thief left my carrots but took the bagel … guess the thief wasn’t interested in a balanced diet!

  13. Mel Bowman says

    I’d love to see a “what’s in my pantry/fridge” post. Your recipes are so awesome, I always want to run and try them immediately. Unfortunately, I almost *never* have all the ingredients on hand (I’ve never even heard of peanut flour). I’ve been collecting various things over the last several months I’ve been following you, but I feel like there’s still a lot I’m missing.

        Oh, I hadn’t seen that. I’ll go look. Thanks!

        I made your flourless chocolate chip cookie recipe yesterday and OH it was so good! And that batter!
