Peanut Butter Syrup

Written by Cooking Naturally Editors on April 17th, 2011


Made with pure maple syrup and honey, this syrup is naturally sweet while the peanut butter and applesauce keep you grounded and satisfied.  It goes great with pancakes, waffles, or even ice-cream.  You could also keep it in the fridge and use it as a spread for toast, biscuits, scones or corn muffins.  Or try it as a dip for your bananas and apples.  It’s simple to make and easy to enjoy!


  • 1/2 c. pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 c. natural peanut butter
  • 1/4 c. unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 c. honey
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • cinnamon to taste (opt)


1. Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan and heat over medium-low, until salt is dissolved and syrup begins to boil.  Remove from heat, stir well and serve warm.

    A big thank you for posting this delicious recipe! We eat a lot of homemade breakfast goods, like pancakes and scones, so we eat a lot of maple syrup! Even though pure maple syrup has great minerals, I still worry a bit about the sugar and not everyone in my family likes berries so we don’t find many satisfying alternatives. This will likely be a happy change for everyone!

    Sounds like a good recipe. I don’t care for pure maple syrup, so the rest of this might fix it for me.
