10 Tasty Ways to Use Peanut Butter in Sweet Treats

I love nut butter, and peanut butter is a staple in our house. I like it crunchy, smooth, unsalted or salted. Peanut butter or other nut butter often accompany my meals. Here are 10 tasty ways to use peanut butter:

  • On banana or apple slices and carrot or celery sticks.
  • Mixed with ricotta cheese and honey served on a rice cake.
  • Mixed with chocolate nibs and raspberry jam on top of a rice cake or hearty piece of toast.
  • Spread on a toasted whole-wheat English muffin and topped with strawberry slices.
  • Added to a banana and/or strawberry smoothies.
  • Mixed with your favorite low-fat yogurt and some flax seeds and used as a tasty fruit dip.
  • Added to a chocolate banana shake – mix 1 cup chocolate milk, chocolate almond milk or chocolate soy milk with 1 Tbsp of peanut butter and 1 frozen banana.
  • Along with mashed bananas added to your pancake batter for a delicious new twist!
  • Mixed into yogurt with some granola for a great healthy dessert.
  • Added to oat bars with bananas, honey, and your choice of nuts and seeds or dried fruits.
  • Mixed with soy sauce and agave for a dip served with pressed cooked tofu or summer or spring rolls.
  • On a spoon, especially when it’s chocolate peanut butter! I just make sure to close the lid after one scoop because it’s hard to stop!

Although I do occasionally enjoy snacking, I rarely eat in between meals. But there are days I need to have a snack if mealtime is going to be extensively delayed.
