Peanut butter is a staple at our house. With five growing kids, it’s a budget-friendly source of protein and my kids love it with a variety of fruits or even with celery (whoever came up with Ants on a Log has my deepest devotion).
At any given moment I have at least 4 to 5 jars in my pantry. Yep, I told you we’re a peanut butter loving family! However, in recent years I have been trying to switch to fewer processed foods and cutting down on sugar, and switching to natural peanut butter was an easy way for me to do that.
Recently, the Simply Recipes Team decided to taste test several different brands of natural peanut butter to see which one came out on top, and as you can imagine I was over the moon! I won’t go into all the details about what natural creamy peanut butter is, or how best to stir it. Instead, I’ve decided to round-up a few of our best recipes that would be great with natural peanut butter.
After all, I’ve got a ton of peanut butter in my fridge that needs to be used up from our taste test, and I’m not letting it go to waste!
