…no, it’s peanut butter. But it tastes like heaven.
On all of the blogs I read, I haven’t heard much about Naturally Nutty. They have a variety of nut butters and even a seed butter! The company also has a great story, which you can read about here. Because I love them so much, I wanted to spread the word and let you guys know about how good this stuff is. It also gave me an excuse to eat lots and lots of it for “experimenting”…so…
Anyways, ever since my trip to Traverse City, Michigan for The Bayshore Marathon, I’ve been putting this peanut butter on everything. My Aunt Kathy introduced it to me a few years ago and I’ve been in love with it ever since. It had been about a year or so since I last had some, so I knew I had to stock up on some once I made it to TC. Of course, you can buy it online (which my fam has done in the past) but I decided to hold off until race weekend to make it that much more special.
Now that my
love peanut butter and I are reunited, I’m taking advantage of it. With delicious treats such as:
Peanut Butter Banana Waffles
I used Van Waffles Wheat Free/Gluten Free Flax Waffles, along with 2 TB of Butter Toffee Peanut Butter (1 TB per waffle), and sliced up a small banana on top. This breakfast was so sweet and tasty that I couldn’t help but make it a few times last week. If only there were more waffles in a box…then I could have had it every day…
Butter Toffee PB Granola
This was my first attempt at making granola. Did it turn out perfect? Sure, if you don’t like your granola super crunchy. Generally I do, buttttt I love the flavor so much that I’ll let it slide 😉 I used Peanut Butter Finger’s peanut butter granola recipe to get a general idea of oven temperature, cooking time, etc. Here’s my version:
2 TB Naturally Nutty Butter Toffee Peanut Butter
2 TB Jif Natural Peanut Butter
1 Cup Oats
Preheat oven to 325 F. Melt the Naturally Nutty and Jif peanut butters in microwave (note: Naturally Nutty Butter Toffee doesn’t melt too much, so don’t worry. That’s why I used the Jif- to make up for it and be super melty). Add oats to melted peanut butter and stir until coated. Bake for 7 minutes.
Julie (Peanut Butter Fingers) had honey in her recipe, but I didn’t want to add it to mine because the Naturally Nutty Butter Toffee Peanut Butter is already sweet. I think the honey may have helped add a crunch-factor to the granola, but the soft granola tastes delicious. If you try this recipe, let me know if you added the honey- and if it added a good crunch/taste to the granola!
I plan on putting this granola on top of yogurt, adding it to nuts/craisins/etc for a trail mix…and just eating it straight out of the bag.
I also plan on googling many more peanut butter recipes and seeing how they turn out with Naturally Nutty’s Butter Toffee Peanut Butter. Pretty sure I will be using their Peanut Butter Pancake recipe tomorrow 🙂
Alright, I’m off to go run some errands! I’m looking to buy a new camera so tonight I’m starting the hunt. 🙂
Questions for you:
I’m thinking about buying a DSLR camera, do you have one that you would recommend? I’m looking for one that (obviously) shoots great pictures, but also isn’t completely ginormous.
Back to peanut butter, what’s your favorite peanut butter recipe? 🙂
Have a great night!
