Peanut Butter jelly sandwich has been my all time favorite. In fact I love peanut butter with anything. Spread on rotis, biscuits, cream crackers, in candies, smoothies, pies etc. One can also make delicious peanut butter cookies, fudge, satay, pudding, peanut butter chicken and other sumptuous dishes with it or simply lick it off like I do many times when no one is looking :p .
I learned and perfected the art of making good peanut butter and for sometime even took orders to sell it. One you make peanut butter at home you will never feel excited about store bought peanut butter. I like it smooth and easy to spread but one can make it a little crunchy too.

Before I share the recipe let me tell you some facts.
**Did you know that peanuts are actually legumes, not nuts, and they originated from Brazil, and that even the Incas appreciated the delicious taste of peanut butter many centuries before us! 😀
**”Arachibutyrophobia” (pronounced I-RA-KID-BU-TI-RO-PHO-BI-A) is the fear of peanut butter getting stuck
to the roof of your mouth.
It is a very healthy lunch box meal power packed with protein and other nutrients. Home made Peanut butter has minimum salt and absolutely no preservatives so it is better than the ones bought from stores and turns out to be cheap too. You can make it crunchy or smooth according to your taste. I make it smooth.
The little bit of fiber found in peanut butter (1 g per tablespoon) combined with its protein content can give dieters a feeling of satiety, or fullness. If you feel full, you will eat less, so a serving of peanut butter may actually help keep your overall caloric intake down.
Now for the recipe
