Author Notes: When you want cinnamon raisin bread with peanut butter and all you have is regular old bread… this stuff comet to the rescue!
Or.. Slather it on cinnamon raisin toast.. Double whammy! —Colleen Stem
Makes: about 1 1/2 cups
cup unsalted peanuts (roasted, but unroasted works too)
teaspoons cinnamon (use more or less depending on your taste
teaspoons maple or honey (optional)
A pinch or two of sea salt
Place the nuts and the raisins in a jar and fill with hot water. Let sit for about 10 minutes until the raisins are plumed up. Stain water and dump the raisins and peanuts into a food processor. Add in the cinnamon. Turn on and blend until smooth.(or kind of smooth if you like it chunky) If you need to, add a splash of hot water to thin out, but be careful to only add a little at a time. Taste and if you think it needs it, add sweetener and blend again. Sprinkle in a pinch of sea salt.
Transfer to a jar, eat with everything,
Store left overs in the fridge
