Nut Butter Recipes

Twenty fast and delicious nut butter recipes to satisfy all of your cravings in just 5 ingredients or less!

5-Ingredient Nut Butter Recipes - The Lemon Bowl

It’s a long running joke between me and my friends that I would be a size 2 if peanut butter didn’t exist. I’m not sure who deemed two tablespoons to be the appropriate serving size of my favorite condiment but I have a feeling they’re in cahoots with the hummus and ice cream serving size authorities. Have you weighed out a 64 gram serving of ice cream lately? Good luck with that.

In happier news, I’m thrilled to share twenty different 5-ingredient nut butter recipes from a few of my blogging friends. Whether you’re craving a warm, gooey cookie or a cool, creamy vegan ice cream – I’ve got you covered.

Your fork is waiting.

  1. Like this idea. 2 questions B4 I make these: 1) If I only have unsalted PB, how much salt would I add, & 2) Can I sub an equal amount of cacao bits? Thanks so much for all your time & energy in making life more beautiful! You are a lifesaver for people with special dietary needs. I found you only a short time ago & I have made 6-7 of your recipes but have yet to comment, though I have shared everything with family & friends who have grown to love you too! When I can breathe again (I suppose after Christmas) I promise to critique every recipe that I have made because they are soooo good! Your granola bars will forever be a staple in our home.

    1. Oh my goodness thank you so much for all of your sweet words! I’m so glad you enjoy my recipes and they make your life easier. Forgive me but what specific recipe are you asking the recipe amount question for?
