I love nut butters, and peanut butter is a staple in our house. I like it crunchy, smooth, unsalted or salted. Peanut butter or nut butters often accompany my meals. Here are 10 tasty ways to use peanut butter:

  1. On banana or apple slices and carrot or celery sticks.
  2. Mixed with ricotta cheese and honey served on a rice cake.
  3. Mixed with chocolate nibs and raspberry jam on top of a rice cake or hearty piece of toast.
  4. Spread on a toasted whole wheat English muffin and topped with strawberry slices.
  5. Added to a banana and/or strawberry smoothies.
  6. Mixed with your favorite low-fat yogurt and some flax seeds and used as a tasty fruit dip.
  7. Added to a chocolate banana shake – mix 1 cup chocolate milk, chocolate almond milk or chocolate soy milk with 1 Tbsp of peanut butter and 1 frozen banana.
  8. Along with mashed bananas added to your pancake batter for a delicious new twist!
  9. Mixed into yogurt with some granola for a great healthy dessert.
  10. Added to oat bars with bananas, honey, and your choice of nuts and seeds or dried fruits.
  11. Mixed with soy sauce and agave for a dip served with pressed cooked tofu or summer or spring rolls.
  12. On a spoon, especially when it’s chocolate peanut butter! I just make sure to close the lid after one scoop because it’s hard to stop!
