What do you do with peanut butter, almond butter, Sun butter, ect.?!
Name your favorite nut/seed butter and what you like to put it on.
I like peanut butter or almond butter on rice cakes, with green apples. When I have a sweet tooth I dip a square of dark chocolate in it. When I make a treat, I love peanut butter cookies or peanut butter rice crispy squares.
Honestly when I am really hungry and don't know what will do the trick, I will often just eat a spoonful of peanut butter straight from the jar. It offers all the major nutrients...some fat, some carb, some protein, so whatever I need is covered efficiently, and takes the edge off so I can think straight and prepare something sensible...or maybe that was all I needed.
I love peanut butter on toast, too but try it sprinkled with cinnamon sugar. It is a delight.
You can also make a peanut sauce for pasta, rice, Asian inspired.
You can make a frosting with it for cakes, brownies...and other chocolate goodies.
I like peanut butter mashed in banana wrapped in a tortilla...or on a bagel.
I also love it in oatmeal.
I love it in oatmeal or chocolate chip cookies.
walnuts.... yummmmm. but i once tried crushed almonds sprinkled over vanilla frosting (homemade, yummy yumm yumm!) and it was delicious, especially once i spread the frosting on a homemade blueberry muffin! also, i normally spread peanut butter over peach slices and then dip the slices in a really thin almond spread. that's usually my breakfast. ^.^ nnnnnnn! <3 ^.^
My absolute favorite butter is cashew butter. I eat it plain on a spoon or dip it in crispy pretzel minis.
I got very tired of peanut butter when I became a vegetarian.
Now that I'm vegan, my diet has a lot more variety. I'm sure I wouldn't have tried any of the other butters before.
Add soysauce to peanut butter and mix it up-then use it as a marinade for tofu sticks- it's a normal indonesian preparation for PB.
I'm partial to buttered crumpets with PB and marmite too.
My mother used to make a wonderful ice cream topping simply by mixing peanut butter and chocolate syrup together and warming it up in the microwave. Pour it over your ice cream while it's still warm!
I like it in celery with raisins, it's great plain, and oddly I like it between tortillas.
For use with crackers though, I prefer the sunbutter!
Gado Gado salad dressing.
Raw almond butter is much better for you. Peanut butter is more difficult to digest. <3
