I’m excited about our topic for What To Make With What’s On Sale this week! Albertsons has Planters Peanut Butter (the 28 oz jars — almost double the regular size) for $3.99, and they’re only $3.24 each when you buy two with the printable coupon! There are also some good deals on peanut butter through Vitacost.
Peanut butter is a staple food in our home. It’s nutritious and everyone in the family loves it, and there are lots of ways to eat it beyond just a PB & J sandwich. Here are some ideas for how to use peanut butter!
Peanut butter is a great snack food. Try Ants On A Log (the only way many kids will eat celery!) or Peanut Butter Dip (with or without the whipped topping) served with fruit, graham crackers or pretzels.
How about peanut butter for breakfast? This Peanut Butter Bread Pudding with Maple-Peanut Sauce looks amazing, and it’s fairly simple to prepare. (It would be great as a dessert too!)
Peanut butter smoothies are good for breakfast or as a snack; try this Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie! It has just three ingredients and can be easily adapted to your personal taste preferences.
Peanut butter is a nice flavor compliment to some Asian-style savory dishes as well. Adding cooked chicken or turkey to these kid-friendly Peanut Butter Noodles would make a delicious main entree.
And, of course, peanut butter is great for desserts! These Homemade Peanut Butter Cups from Brown Eyed Baker are to die for. If you like the idea of peanut butter cups without the work of making each one individually, try these Peanut Butter Cup Bars (also from Brown Eyed Baker.)
Peanut butter cookies are another favorite dessert. Here’s a 5-ingredient recipe for Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies. If you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, try these chocolatey, chunky Peanut Butter Cookies.
