Peanuts are one of my favorite magic ingredients because we can use peanuts in many different recipes it gives a rich texture and intense flavor to the dish. Finding a good source of protein on the vegetarian side is very tough but peanuts serve the purpose. Here I am going to do a small variation to usual Peanut butter, to make it a little more interesting that is “Smooth Chocolate Peanut Butter”.
My son was not interested in having peanut butter and always preferred Nutella. Peanut butter is naturally smooth and silky. I just sprinkled a spoon of cocoa powder and my son’s peanut butter Nutella is ready. I use this trick to make my two-year-old boy eat Pancakes, Wheat dosa, and Ragi dosa with Chocolate Peanut Butter, Yes he might find this workaround soon. but it is good to cheat kids in a healthy way as long as they find.
A good dietary substitute
Peanut butter is a healthy and delicious recipe. As a weight watcher, I always prefer a low sugar substitute than an added sugar jam or Nutella. Peanut butter is the best protein-filled substitute. A little quantity can make you feel full for a long time. This is best after workout food. This can be taken with toasted brown bread or as a protein shake.

- Adding coconut oil is optional. If you use good quality peanuts no need for oil. Peanuts ooze out enough butter to make the butter-rich and creamy.
- I kept the peanut butter little crunchy to enjoy the small peanut bites in between. It is completely optional.
