I think we can all agree that peanut butter is like, the best thing that has ever happened to mankind (neck and neck with chocolate, of course).  Honestly, any nut butter is pretty darn amazing, but peanut butter just has an incredibly unique flavor.  It’s smooth, it’s addictive, it’s memorable.

It’s a given that peanut butter lovers would like peanut butter baking chips!  Too bad those seemingly innocent little morsels are incredibly bad for you.  Where do I start?

The hydrogenated oil?

The refined sugars?

The preservatives?

How about the artificial flavors?

Store-bought peanut butter chips are a diet buster that your body probably doesn’t even know how to begin digesting (don’t worry, I won’t divulge in the GI system functions any longer).  Just trust me, store-bought peanut butter chips are bad news.

Healthy Homemade Peanut Butter Baking Chips

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Line a mini loaf pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, stir together the peanut butter and powdered erythritol (it should be thick and fudgy, like PB cookie dough or a truffle mixture...  check out the GIF below this recipe box which shows the recipe-making process!).  Press the mixture into the loaf pan.  Place a small sheet of parchment on top of the mixture and flatten out the surface.  Place the pan in the freezer for 1 hour.
  3. Transfer the mixture out of the pan and slice into desired size with a sharp knife.
  4. Store the chips in an airtight container in the freezer.

  1. OMG yes! Now I just need to get some of that fancy complicated sounding powdered stuff 😛

  2. I’ve done this before with oat flour and protein powder.. Not as sweet, obviously, but still really darn good.

  3. Thanks very interesting blog!
