Peanut Butter Lovers

Whether you like it smooth, crunchy, in a sandwich, or just straight from a spoon, peanut butter fills our hearts with love. Peanut butter is our best friend these days. It's shelf-stable and delicious.

Here are some creative ways to make it even better!

From Scratch

Best Thing Since Sliced Bread

Peanut Butter Cookie Sandwiches
Lemons and Basil

Filled with dark chocolate in place of milk, replaced regular white sugar with honey and organic coconut sugar, and used whole organic oats and hazelnut meal in place of refined processed flour. These gluten-free cookie sandwiches, filled with chocolate hazelnut filling, are a hit with adults and kids!

The Perfect Pair

Peanut Butter and Honey Crunch Bars
Oh Bite It

Peanut butter and honey -- the perfect pair make for a tasty bar. A graham cracker crusted, toffee filled, chocolate layered, sticky peanut buttery bar!

The Reconstruction

Banana & Peanut Butter Mascarpone Pie
Lady and Pups

Adapted from Brooks Headley's Fancy Desserts, you cannot go wrong with this combo. No major component changes from the original – the ratio of peanut butter mascarpone and salt, the amount of sugar for each banana, the element of crunch from the croutons – except the way it is put together. Instead of being scattered, it has been re-constructed into a pie of sweet and salty goodness you won't be able to stop eating.

The Community Pick

Magically Delicious

What may be the best thing about these pancakes other than the fact that they’re delicious, is that they are relatively guilt-free. Full of whole grains, protein, and bananas.

Nice Cream

Vegan Peanut Butter and Banana Ice Cream

What makes this ice cream so amazing is that it is entirely free from dairy and sugar. Essentially made up of not much but frozen banana, this recipe is also one of the most cost-effective as obviously there aren't any egg yolks, cream, or fancy flavoring.

Bomb Brownies
