I Love Peanut Butter!!

It's National Peanut Butter Day!!
How Fun! It is seriously one of my favorite things! So why not celebrate.  It can be a healthier snack.... with portion control of course :) and especially if you go for the more all- natural kinds.  My latest discovery is PB2.  It's a Peanut Butter powder, great for mixing in smoothies and other recipes.  For a spread you just mix with water and it's awesome! It's so much healthier. They have quite a few recipe ideas here. Maybe you can find a store near you that has it or stock up on a few for food storage to save on the shipping from the site. Another option Make your own Peanut Butter with a Vitamix if you are lucky enough to have one....It's sooooo on my Wish List! I wish, I wish, I wish!

Anyway, here is a round up of some really great Peanut Butter recipes that I can't wait to try!

Allergic to peanuts....sorry :( Ignore this post...hehe. Use some Almond Butter instead.  I feel bad making yummy things like this in front of my allergic daughter, but Almond butter should work just fine. I for one CANNOT give up PB :)

MMMMmmmm....let me know if you try any of these recipes or if you have some yummy healthier versions of your own.
