If you don’t have any peanut butter in your pantry it’s time to stock up on them! My pantry has at least 2-3 jars of peanut butter and I am almost never out of peanut butter. We literally have peanut butter with everything! Whether we have some with fruits, veggies or create a super easy and delicious dessert like these No Bake and edible Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Balls.
What Kind Peanut Butter to use:
Have loads of peanut butter like I do? Great! If you don’t and you aren’t so sure what type of peanut butter to use? I am here to help guide when you go shopping. Have a favorite brand you always use and love? Go right ahead with whatever peanut butter brand you love and works best for you.
Types of Peanut Butter:
By now, we all know that there are two main types of peanut butter: Crunchy and smooth. That’s the easy part because you are either a crunchy peanut butter person or you are not. Another preference is whether the peanut butter you go with has “added sugar” to it. If you prefer not to have the added sugar, they always look at the nutrition facts label or ingredients label to determine if there is any added sugar.
Generally, all-natural peanut butter has no sugar or palm oil added. It’s pretty much just peanuts and salt. The traditional peanut butter does have about 1g of sugar added to it per serving and palm oil which makes it easier to use for baking and prevents the oils from the ground peanuts to float to the top.
Whether you use peanut butter for a snack, for breakfast on a toast or smoothie or to make a dessert with, peanut butter is super versatile and easy to work with. It is a pantry staple that’s super affordable and can be added to your favorite meals and recipes for a nutritious boost.

Is Peanut butter good for you?
From adults to kids, everyone loves peanut butter. Loaded with good fats and power-packed protein, no matter how you decide to use peanut butter in your daily diet regimen, in each serving (2 tablespoons), you will get 8g of protein, 2g of fiber and 12g of saturated fats.
How to add Peanut Butter to your diet
The recommendation is to have 2 tablespoons of peanut butter daily. Alternatively, there are so many ways you can incorporate peanut butter into your diet.

Just wondering if you could replace the oat flour and the peanut flour with some regular flour
It won’t work if you are thinking of using something like all-purpose flour. It just won’t taste right either. You can use blended oats. I have this energy bites recipe you can check out that won’t need peanut flour or almond flour and so on.
These are great! Thank you for sharing this recipe! I used almond flour (didn’t have peanut flour) and they taste so good. About the crumbling of the dough that someone had a hard time with, I found it to be crumbly, too, but when you press it together into a ball with your hands it does come together. It’s a great recipe!
Thanks for the feedback
This was yummy! What am I doing wrong though. It came out so crumbly and dry. I wonder if my peanut flour is something different than what you used? Are there different types of peanut flour? In order to make it a Joe I had to add some oat milk.
I appreciate any of your thoughts about this!
Hi Audrey, That’s odd. This recipe also works with almond flour. So maybe try and see if that works better for you.
Thanks, I’ll try that!

Hi what can I use as substitutes to peanut flour and oat flour if I don’t find them ?
Hi there. Use almond flour or coconut flour. Also, you can blend some oats and use as flour as well.
Hello! Your recipes look amazing!. I’m just wondering are the calories based off of all 12 balls or just 1?
Thank you. It is for one
Looks wonderful but in the ingredient list you say oat and peanut flour and in the directions you say oat and almond flour. Could you clarify please. Hope to make them soon.
Yes, that was an error. I use almond flour a lot so I somehow typed that in. It should be peanut flour. But almond flour will also work.
