Happy National Peanut Butter Lovers Month!


Do you know what month it is? Yes, it is November and yes, Thanksgiving is this month. More importantly (to some) it’s National Peanut Butter Lovers Month! In honor of this special month, we’ve put together a list of a few of our favorite peanut butter treats.

PBP – Peanut Butter Pretzels
Peanut butter is great by itself but it’s better when it’s being scooped up by a lightly salted pretzel. We have two favorite ways to pair this duo:

For pretzels heavy on the PB:
Ingredients
● One jar of your favorite peanut butter
● One bag of pretzel bows

Instructions
● Line a cookie sheet with wax paper
● Lay pretzels on cookie sheet
● Using a butter knife spread peanut butter evenly over the pretzels filling in the holes
● Make it special: Top with a few chocolate chips or M&Ms.
● Put the entire cookie sheet in the fridge for an hour to let the peanut butter harden

For pretzels light on the PB:
Ingredients
● One jar of your favorite peanut butter
● One bag of pretzel bows or pretzel rods

Instructions
● Line a cookie sheet with wax paper
● Spread pretzels (bows or rods) on cookie sheet
● Add peanut butter to a piping bag (you can also use a Ziplock baggie)
● Heat piping bag (or baggie) in 20 second increments until contents is slightly smooth but not too liquidy
● Using a piping bag: Squeeze the bag while dispensing the peanut butter in a zigzag motion back and forth across the the pretzels
● Using a baggie: Cut the tip off the corner of the baggie to create a small hole. Follow above step for piping bag.
● Put in freezer to harden the peanut butter.

Peanut Butter Banana Sandwiches
Peanut Butter Banana Sandwiches are one of our classic favorites from childhood. If you were one of those kids worried about a soggy sandwich you probably had a PBB. The bananas balanced the dryness of the peanut butter without making your bread soggy.You may be thinking you’re a little too old to enjoy a good ol’ Peanut Butter Banana Sandwich now, but there’s an adult version we highly recommend – two banana slices, one scoop peanut butter, drizzled with honey and a sprinkled with cinnamon.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies
You can never go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate. There are so many good combinations – milkshakes, Reese’s Peanut Butter cups, and of course, cookies. One of our favorite peanut butter chocolate chip cookie recipes comes from MyRecipes.com. They aren’t bad for being flourless! That’s right, this delicious chocolate chip and peanut butter combo is flourless.
