When a recipe calls for 16 oz. peanut butter, does anyone know the conversion? All pb isn't the same texture so I'm not sure it'd measure the same. Thanks.

I guess it depends on what it's for but to me 16 oz is usually 2 cups. However, peanut butter can be packed like brown sugar, so I'd use your better judgement.

Seems like patticakes is right - 16 0z jar of peanut butter = 2 cups.

King Arthur Flour has a Master Weight Chart that you might find helpful. According to their chart 1/2c peanut butter weighs 4.75 oz so a 1 cup would be 9.5oz and 2 cups equals 19 oz. of peanut butter.

and then there is the old addage from the cooks of yester-year... a pint is a pound, the world around. and we all know that 1 pint = 2 cups

Yes, Randy, but a pint of marshmallow fluff does not weigh the same as a pint of peanut butter.
