I tried this recipe for a p**nut butter substitute and could not
believe how delicious it was.  This is from "Get the Fat Out" and
comes highly recommended:

Garbanzo Nut Butter

4 cups cooked chickpeas
2 Tbsp cornstarch
1/3 cup frozen applejuice concentrate, thawed (I didn't have any so I
used a scant 1/3 cup sugar and 1/3 cup water) 
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1 1/2 cups cooking liquid from beans (I used the liquid from  canned beans)

Drain the beans and save the liquid.  Roast the beans on a cookie
sheet, 350F for 1- 1 1/2 hours.  Grind in a processor or blender.

Blend the cornstarch, apple juice concentrate, vanilla and cinnamon in
a saucepan.  Add the bean liquid and heat, stirring until thickened.
Combine with the ground chickpeas to form a peanut butter
consistancy. Store in the refrigerator.
