Can I substitute natural peanut butter for processed peanut butter in your recipe?
Generally, yes, you can swap out processed peanut butter for natural, but there are a few things to keep in mind:
- Texture. The texture of natural peanut butter is a bit on the runny side. Keep your natural peanut butter chilled as long as possible before adding it to your batter (like in these 5-Ingredient Granola Bars), and be sure to stir it really well before measuring.
- Salt. Secondly, if your natural peanut butter is unsalted, you might need to adjust the amount of salt in your baking.
- Sweetness. It’s certainly unsweetened, so the end product may not be as sweet as you expect, either. You’ll want to adjust the amount of sugar according to your tastes.
Hope this helps! Enjoy! ❤️
