Have you been inspired to make some delicious oatmeal cookies by using all types of peanut butter? All types of peanut butter are very different from each other without sniff and scratch! If you use another type than what’s recommended, you may not get the results you want and this is also a big waste of effort, money and time. You can’t go wrong if you stick with the types of peanut butter described here.

How To Find Healthy Peanut Butter?

First of all, if you want to avoid chemicals, preservatives, dyes, and colors you should stick with all-natural, wholesome peanut butter. It’s so easy to find this kind of healthy peanut butter.

The best and easiest way for choosing healthy peanut butter is to search for the one with a few ingredients. Healthy peanut butter is an unprocessed food that only has one ingredient- peanuts. They are typically roasted and grind into a paste to create the final product. Most of the commercial peanut butter contains peanuts and salt and sometimes few other ingredients too. Less healthy peanut butter contains added sugar and hydrogenated vegetable oils, which give you extra calories and can worsen the health effects. For example, consuming too many hydrogenated fats and sugar can make you obese and increase the risk of heart diseases.

Even some peanut butter that claims to be organic also includes unhealthy ingredients, which is why it is important to read the ingredient panel.

Types Of Peanut Butter Texture

You can see peanut butter on its own, as a smooth paste, as a jelly, or in granola cereal. As you can see, all of these products are smooth, spreadable, chunky, and tasty. The texture you taste when you eat these products varies because some have a crunchier taste and some have a smoother texture.

Sneaking Peanut Butter Into Your Meals

  • With all the delicious foods we’ve been eating recently, it’s only natural that we want more savory foods such as sandwiches, salsas, dips, and spreads. To make the best peanut butter cookies, crackers, and other pastries, you need to add ingredients to them that will give you the crunchy texture we enjoy so much. And what could be a better ingredient than peanuts? Try using peanut butter to create smooth, creamy peanut butter cookies, or try adding chopped nuts to make crunchy nutty cookies.
  • Another way to add crunch is to dry roast them instead of boiling them. There are two ways to dry roast peanuts, wet and dry roasting. Wet roasted peanuts have to be kept in an airtight container, while dry roasting allows them to get more moisture. You can either use a tablespoon of mustard and a tablespoon of oil in your dry roasting pan. When the mustard and oil are combined and turned out on the hot air griddle, they’ll sizzle and pop, and give you a tasty snack you can take with you anytime.

It is important to remember that not all peanut butter recipes will taste the same. As you try different variations, you will find new favorites along the way. And while you’re at it, consider taking a trip to your local grocery store and picking up a container of organic peanuts, or adding them to your baked goods as well. In addition, try to jazz up your peanut butter cookie mix, such as replacing some of the vanilla with cinnamon or adding in some raisins. You’ll be surprised by how much change a little bit can make.
