Peanut Butter Lovin'

It's National Peanut Butter Day! What a fantastic holiday!

I made peanut butter cookies in honor of the day! I'm going to share with you a few of my favorite peanut butter treats!

These are the best peanut butter cookies I've ever had. I've blogged about them once before, but they are so good I have to write about them again.

They are super easy to make:

1 egg, 1 cup of sugar, 1 cup of peanut butter, and one teaspoon of vanilla
Mix it all up, drop about tablespoon-sized drops onto a baking sheet, and bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.
Sprinkle some sugar on the cookies as soon as they come out of the oven and ENJOY!!

Zoe also enjoyed some peanut butter. She LOVES peanut butter!

She loves peanut butter so much I even made her a peanut butter doggie pupcake on her first birthday!

I legit eat peanut butter at some point every day. I love making peanut butter Rice Krispy Treats (to die for!), topping oatmeal with peanut butter, adding peanut butter to my morning breakfast shake, or using peanut butter as a healthy snack.
Mix 1 tablespoon of peanut butter with 1 tablespoon of light cool whip and dip apple pieces into the peanut butter whip dip. It is sweet and filling at the same time! And low calorie!

I also like having chocolate Vitamuffins and topping them with a tablespoon of peanut butter.

Peanut butter is just so awesome! It can be healthy and indulgent all at once!

I found these peanut butter recipes on Pinterest and I can't wait to try them! My future Mother-in-Law's birthday is today so I just might have to make her a peanut butter themed birthday treat next time I see her!
Peanut Butter Ball! Dip Nutter Butters into that! Looks amazing! Recipe here.
Elvis milkshakes! Peanut butter and banana! Recipe here.
The recipe calls for vanilla ice cream, but I would substitute vanilla Greek yogurt for a healthier version!

Do you love peanut butter too?

  1. That is my FAVORITE cookie recipe, ever! So easy to make and clean. Its the only cookies I was allowed to make from scratch as a child because of my affinity for getting flour everywhere. I'm pretty sure if the hubster had his way, it'd still be the only way I'm allowed to make cookies :) So delicious!

  2. YUMMMMY. All these things look stinkin' delicious. I'm gonna try those cookies tonight. :)

  3. I love peanut butter cookies! They are my fav! Carly loves peanut butter, it's hilarious to watch her lick it off the spoon!
