Foodie Friday: National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day!

Let’s be honest, I celebrate peanut butter everyday. Personally, I think everyone should. Peanut butter is delicious and nutritious and should be a balance part of every diet; and by balanced, I mean feel free to replace meals with jars of peanut butter. [I wish I could!]

I want you to celebrate National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day the right way, so I’ve compiled a list of sweet and savory peanut butter recipes. Enjoy!

Food for Thought

What is your number one go-to peanut butter? Do you prefer other nut or seed butters over peanut butter?

Foodie Friday: Hail Merry Peanut Butter Coconut Banana Bites & a Giveaway!

Yesterday, I was so excited to share with you the wonderful world of Hail Merry snacks. Today, I’m even more excited to not only share with you a delicious treat that I created using their raw, gluten-free macaroons, but also host a giveaway!

Hail Merry Peanut Butter Coconut Banana Bites

Makes 12 Bites

Barr & Table Hail Merry Peanut Butter Coconut Banana Bites

Ingredients
6 Choco or Blonde Hail Merry Macaroons
3 tbsp peanut butter [I use Peanut Butter & Co. Smooth Operator]
1 small banana
1/4 cup dark chocolate chips [I use Ghirardelli]

Directions
Slice each macaroon into so you have 2 coin-shaped pieces per macaroon. Slice your banana into 12 1/4″ pieces. Top each macaroon coin with 1 tsp peanut butter and then with a banana slice.

Place in freezer for 15-20 minutes until bites are set. Once set, melt chocolate chips and dip half of the bites in the chocolate. Melt peanut butter and drizzle on top of each bite.

Place in the freezer for another 15-20 minutes to set again. Let sit out for a minute or two to warm up before enjoying!

Talk about melt-in-your-mouth, these bites are decadent but light enough that you can indulge without the guilt.
