Ever since I was a kid, peanut butter has owned a piece of my heart. Add in chocolate and boom!, you've got me. Justin's peanut butter cups, peanut and almond butter squeeze packets, and peanut butter snack packs are on my essentials list this season. Also, the trick-or-treaters are going to claim that your house is the one to visit.
Have you ever had vanilla almond butter? You can thank me later.
While my love affair with peanut butter spans over a decade, not everyone sees things my way. Here are some recipes to ease you in or to satisfy your obsession.
Peanut Butter Thai Sauce
To make a delicious sauce to make boring noodles exciting, gather these ingredients:
- 1/4 cup + 1/8 cup Justin’s Classic Peanut Butter
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 1 teaspoon soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon rice vinegar
- 3 tablespoons water
- 1 teaspoon Sriracha
Put all the ingredients in a medium sauce pan, whisk, and put the burner on low. Whisk sauce intermittently for 10-15 minutes or until sauce consistency is smooth.
Almond Butter and Roasted Pumpkin (squash)
This makes a great side dish or compliments a salad.
- 1 pumpkin or squash of your choosing
- 1 Cup of raisins or cranberries
- 4 Tablespoons Justin's Maple Almond Butter
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Cut your pumpkin into slivers (leave the skin on the pumpkin so that it is easier to handle after it bakes). Place them on a cookie sheet. In a small bowl, combine the EVOO and almond butter. Whisk into a light dressing and drizzle over pumpkin. Toss the berries throughout. Cover pumpkin with foil. Set the oven to 450 and let bake for 20 minutes or until soft.
Peanut Butter and Jelly SmoothieHere's one especially for the kids. Makes a great snack or perfect breakfast.
- 2 Cups Almond Milk (or other milk)
- 1 Cup Plain Greek Yogurt
- 2 Tablespoons Justin's Vanilla Almond Butter
- 1 Frozen Banana
- 2 Cups Frozen Berries
- 1 Cup Ice Cubes
Combine all the ingredients in a blender.
Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate SpoonsTo make these adorable and tasty hot chocolate spoons perfect for any fall or winter party you will need:
- Justin's Chocolate Hazelnut Butter
- Justin's Classic Peanut Butter
- Plastic Spoons
- Chocolate Shell Syrup
- Sprinkles (optional)
Fill your spoon with the butter of your choosing. Add the chocolate shell syrup to the top of the spoon to keep the butter encased. Add the sprinkles before the shell hardens. Display on a plate for guests to use in their coffee, hot cocoa, or just to eat right of the spoon!
