I don’t know about you, but I love anything and everything that involves peanut butter. I think I eat it almost every day, and am always looking for new snacks/treats that incorporate it. I thought I would share five of my favorite go tos that my family also enjoys. I would love to know any of your favorite recipes or ideas! Feel free to use any nut butter for these.
1. Energy Balls
We love making a batch (or two) of energy balls for the week because they are such an easy snack or treat. We are currently adding in Kodiak cake mix, and have absolutely loved it. I mix everything together with my hands (easier), and roll into the size balls we are wanting to store in the fridge. The current recipe we are using is…
1 cup Kodiak mix, 1/2 cut oats, 1 cup peanut butter, 1/2 cup honey, 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
2.Chocolate Chip Yogurt
This is one of my go to sweet treats that I have been making for awhile, and hits the spot! The measurements can really be personal preference for each ingredient. I just eyeball and taste as I am making it.
I use vanilla Greek yogurt (about 1/2 cup), 1 spoon of peanut butter, drizzle honey, sea salt, handful of chocolate chips.
I always love a standard peanut butter toast or rice cake for something during the day. We like the chocolate rice cakes, so if I have that I usually save for the end of the day as something sweet and add chocolate chips on top. If I am doing toast, I like to add banana and honey! You could also use a frozen waffle instead of bread. My go to bread is the Ezekiel and waffles are Kodiak.
I love having peanut butter with apples. If I really want something sweet I melt the peanut butter and chocolate chips to drizzle on apple slices (or can dip). I also love having cocoa nibs with it to add more crunch!
We love making our own classic peanut butter crackers. My husband will add some flake salt in the middle, and I will sometimes add mini chocolate chips depending on my mood. They are an easy snack for everyone in the family.
