“Nothing takes the taste out of peanut butter quite like unrequited love.”
Charlie Brown

"Ants on a Log" made with homemade Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Peanut Butter (inspired by The Peanut Butter Company’s cookbook).

Making peanut butter for me has dated back to that illustrious day in 659A Somerville Ave, with a food processor, ton of peanuts and a best friend named Bradford.

This batch, with a bit of a hand from Melissa and her tastebuds came out really well.

Here’s the peanut butter recipe for anyone interested in trying it out:

=============================

Yields: 1 cup of smooth peanut butter

Ingredients:
* 2 cups of unsalted dry roasted peanuts
* 1 teaspoon of peanut oil
* pinch of finely ground sea salt

Preparation:
* Place the peanuts in a food processor and pulse until the peanuts form a paste. Add half of the oil and continue pulsing for another minute. Continue to add oil and pulse the food processor until the peanut butter is smooth enough for your personal taste.

* Transfer the peanut butter to a bowl add half of the salt and stir the peanut butter well. Take a taste and add more salt if necessary.

* Store the peanut butter in a covered glass or plastic container in a cool, dry place.

You also try these add-ons to the recipe above:

Crunchy peanut butter: Follow the recipe above, but grind just 1 and 1/2 cup of the initial peanuts. Chop the reserved 1/2 cup and mix it in after you’ve ground the rest of the peanut butter.

Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Peanut Butter: To 1 cup of smooth peanut butter (see above) add 1 tablespoon sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/4 raisins. Taste and add more sugar/cinnamon as needed.

Scientific evidence that whole grain is good for your body.

Five Ways Whole Grains Can Change Your Life:

  1. Heart health. Heart-healthy diets rich in whole grain foods can reduce the risk of heart disease.
  2. Reduce cancer risk. Low fat diets rich in fiber-containing grain products, fruits and vegetables may reduce the risk of some types of cancer, particularly of the stomach and colon.
  3. Manage diabetes. The American Diabetes Association® recommends whole grain as part of a diabetic diet.
  4. Keep you regular. Fiber from whole grains promotes regularity and keeps the intestines working smoothly to help maintain good digestive health.
  5. Weight management. A growing body of evidence supports that people who eat more whole grain tend to have healthier body weights and gain less weight over time than those who don’t.

Another experiment. They could be a little sweeter. I need to buy some date paste or date juice I think to sweeten them up a bit. I hate to rely on Splenda as a "healthy" way to sweeten things. Anyone else have ideas for ways to sweeten cookies up a bit without using maple syrup or sugar?

1/2 CUP WHOLE WHEAT FLOUR
1/4 CUP UNBLEACHED FLOUR
1/2 TSP SALT
1/2 TSP BAKING POWDER
1/2 TSP BAKING SODA
1/4 TSP CORNSTARCH
1 TBSP COCOA
3 TBSP PEANUT BUTTER
1 TBSP CINNAMON
3 TBSP OLIVE OIL
3 TBSP UNSWEETENED APPLESAUCE
3/4 CUP SPLENDA
2 TBSP HONEY
1/2 CUP VANILLA SOY YOGURT
1 TBSP VANILLA EXTRACT
2 1/2 CUPS ROLLED OATS
4 TBSP VEGAN CHOCOLATE CHIPS

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place rack in middle of oven. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.

Sift flours, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cocoa and cornstarch into a bowl and set aside.

In a food processor, add oil, applesauce, sugar, honey, yogurt, cinnamon, peanut butter and vanilla. Pulse into a consistency much like a regular cookie dough would be before the flour is added.

Transfer mixture into a bowl and slowly stir in the dry flour mixture. When combined and smooth, add the rolled oats and chocolate chips.

Spoon one inch balls onto cookie sheets. Cook for 7-8 minutes, you want them somewhat softish.

Recipe should make 48 cookies.
