Recipe-- Boost Your Peanut Butter!

I came across this great idea for boosting the nutritional value of your peanut butter, and thought I would pass it on. We get great, big tubs of all-natural peanut butter from a Mennonite store near us (ingredients: peanuts) and of course there is always a layer of oil that has separated from the peanut butter. Instead of stirring this in, pour it off into a measuring cup and after noting the amount, discard it. Replace this oil with an equal amount of organic coconut oil and stir it in to blend (I actually spoon everything into the bowl of my stand mixer and beat the heck out of it--I haven't the muscle for hand mixing it), then add to this some organic, milled flaxseed, using as much or as little as you desire. Keep what you will use over a week or two in a cabinet and put the rest in the fridge.

That's all there is to it.

  2. Flaxseed doesn't give you those nasty burps? bleh! My PB is already "boosted" with preservetives and sugar-I should really do something about that!
