Peanut Butter Cup Milkshake

Peanut Butter Cup Milkshake

I generally like my milkshakes in classic flavors like vanilla, strawberry and chocolate, with the former two being slightly favored over the latter. When you have a really good milkshake, these flavors really shine. But as with all things, variety is nice, too, and as good as a plain vanilla milkshake is, it’s nice to be able to dress it up a bit with other ... Read More »

Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Cookies

Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Cookies

Drop cookies, made of dough that is casually shaped into a ball and dropped onto a cookie sheet, are not always the most attention-getting cookies. I think that they’re probably the most often made type of cookie, since they are very quick and easy when compared to cut-out cookies, but they don’t hold a candle to the cutouts when it comes to presentation.

PB Loco Jungle Banana Peanut Butter, reviewed

If you go to a big supermarket, you’ll see two basic kinds of peanut butter: creamy and crunchy. If you’re lucky, you might also see a honey roasted flavor in the mix.

Natural peanut butter vs Regular peanut butter in baking

Natural peanut butter

Your most basic peanut butter contains just peanuts and some oil to help the peanuts blend together into a smooth paste. There are two distinct types of peanut butter: “regular”  and “natural”. “Regular” is the term I’ll use to define your standard peanut butter and jelly sandwich peanut butter, and a category that includes most easy to find national brands. It’s creamy and thick, even ... Read More »

Banana Peanut Butter Oatmeal Muffins

Banana bread is a classic that I will always keep coming back to. It’s easy, it uses up those pesky overripe bananas, and it can be made in any number of variations. This is something of a variation on it, although I opted for a muffin form rather than a bread. These Banana Peanut Butter Oatmeal Muffins were inspired by a description of some muffins ...

Sunflower Butter Cookies

Sunflower Butter Cookies

Peanut butter is unquestionably the go-to nut butter in the kitchen. It has a lot of flavor and it’s readily available, usually at a much better price than other nut butters. But as with all things food-related, it’s nice to have some other options and deviate from the standard from time to time. In this case, that means experimenting with some non-peanut butter nut butter ... Read More »

Alternatives to Peanut Butter in Baking

Sunflower seed butter

Even though neither Jif nor Skippy, the two largest peanut butter brands in the US, have been included in the recent peanut butter recall (neither sources products from the Peanut Corporation of America), peanut butter is still not at the top of most people’s shopping lists at the moment because of the salmonella scare. One of the upsides to this is that more people are ... Read More »
