Is there possibly a better combination than Oreos and peanut butter? I had never heard of eating them together until I saw the Lindsay Lohan version of The Parent Trap. When one of her characters used Oreos to scoop peanut butter out of the jar, it blew. my. mind.
It makes sense. I mean, chocolate and peanut butter are BFFs. Exhibit A: Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. But pairing not-too-sweet Oreo wafers, creamy filling, and the magic that is peanut butter? Does it get better than that?!
Well, yes. Yes it does. How about Oreos *in* peanut butter?!
My Oreo Peanut Butter could not be easier to whip up. All you need are three ingredients: roasted salted peanuts, Double Stuf Oreos, and a tablespoon of coconut oil. Put all three in a food processor or high-powered blender, and blitz until smooth. That’s it! The combination of freshly-ground peanut butter and pulverized Oreos is to die for, and the coconut oil keeps everything smooth and spreadable.
The only drawback is that it’s not the most gorgeous color, but when there is peanut butter-Oreo magic going on, who cares?
Oreo Peanut Butter is fantastic on toast, spread on bananas, in milkshakes, or just on a spoon. My favorite thing to do with it is make Fluffernutter sandwiches. Who wouldn’t love Oreos, peanut butter, and Marshmallow Fluff?!
Bottom line: make this Oreo Peanut Butter. It doesn’t get any better.
