  1. A new thing I have been doing is putting pb on things I normally don’t eat but should eat more of (ie. vegetables). Peanut butter goes well with cucumbers!

  2. Making the peanut sauce for summer rolls is one of my favorite ways to eat nut butter 🙂
    Thank You for the great review and giveaway!

  3. I love to toast some sprouted grain bread, then spread coconut-peanut butter all over it, sprinkle it with cran-raisins, and dust it with cinnamon! Yum! Of course, it tastes even better if I cut it into Mickey Mouse shape with my cookie cutter 🙂

  4. My favorite snack ever is fresh fruit (raspberries, blueberries, banana, strawberries, apple, etc) dipped into peanut butter. Seriously during the summer I live off of strawberries, blueberries and peanut butter. Lol.

  5. My favorite way to eat nut butter is on the heal of a piece of wheat bread topped with sliced bananas, chopped dates and a drizzle of honey!

  6. My wife makes this spread using a banana, peanut butter and cocoa all blended together and puts it on sandwiches. It is amazing.

  7. So, this is not the healthiest, but I love a good grilled peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Never tried my own nut butter, but I bet it would make the sandwich even better.

  8. There’s another way to eat it other than right out of the jar. I guess it has never made it that far.

  9. I have never tried it and this is the first time I have even heard of it will have to try it

  10. I like to add peanut butter to pancake and waffle batter, and slather it all over the top of waffles and pancakes.

  11. i like to eat nut butter with fruit. i like apples, bananas and sometimes even pears with my nut butters.
