The Peanut Butter Cookbook

Written by



08 February 2024

Who’s the author? Founded in 2015 by Stuart MacDonald, ManiLife is the UK’s number one premium peanut butter brand. After spending a year in Argentina, Stuart fell into working with a peanut butter enterprise and soon realised that there were no peanut butter brands in the UK that prioritised quality, craft, taste and – most importantly – provenance, something that premium chocolate and coffee brands had been addressing for some time.

Using peanuts that are sourced from Argentina, then roasted for a deep, intense flavour and blended in small batches, ManiLife peanut butter is now one of the UK’s favourite premium brands, stocked by an array of major retailers. It is the most awarded peanut butter brand, with endorsements from the Great Taste Awards, The Times, Good Housekeeping, the Daily Mail, Joe Wicks, and many more.

What’s it about? ManiLife has been on a mission to make the best-tasting product; having achieved that goal (and now the proud recipient of 19 Great Taste Awards), it is now turning its attention to inspiring people to use it every day in this collection of delicious recipes. Peanut butter is good for so much more than toast and this book contains 75 new recipes for all occasions, from breakfasts and main meals to plenty of sweet treats too. Discover all the ways you can cook with peanut butter and unleash the potential of your jar, with sweet and savoury, smooth and crunchy recipes.

Recipes we love: Black Bean Peanut Butter Dal, Samosa Sandwich, Charred Broccoli Tikka Masala, Passion Fruit Meringue Roulade and Miso Caramel Peanut Brownies.

Perfect for: Any peanut butter fan – and particularly those who value quality and taste as well as provenance – will find plenty of inspiration here.
