I love almond butter and peanut butter and this way I can eat even more! With the disappointment of other childhood favorites fresh, I'll admit I felt nervous to try the peanut butter I grew up with. And all of us had tried Justin's peanut butter cups and were big fans. Buying food at a grocery store is only a dream. Introduction to Human Services: AmazonGlobal Ship Orders Internationally. But it really tasted like whole peanuts were used in the process—nut, husk, and shell—in a kind of bitter, kind of dusty sort of way.

Withoutabox Submit to Film Festivals. This idea saves the day! I have made similar concoctions by adding applesauce, yogurt, or chia gel to peanut butter. I thought this was your banana butter at first looks similar! Love the frosting idea, too. This looks so spreadable! At first it will separate, but just keep stirring and it eventually will turn into the consistency of frosting.
With all due respect, may I please just be honest with one disagreement I have with what you posted here? While those who have healthy minds can freely do what they want with their peanut butter, suggesting that someone with a genetic inclination to obsess over food and weight to practice this is really just justifying eating disordered individuals to remain in their disordered ways.
Thank you for taking the time to leave your input; I really appreciate it. I went ahead and took the line out of the post. Thank you very much, Katie! Hey girl, I would just like to add that this site was a go-to during the recovery of my restrictive eating disorder. Admittedly it was the low calorie options that drew me to this site when I was still stuck in that mindset, but I still loved them when I was recovering, I just ate more of them.
Recovery is rough, to say the least. I appreciate recipes like this. I am neither overweight nor suffering from an eating disorder, just your average reader wanting to live a balanced life which definitely includes peanut butter as is but can also include this method when I want more of a dip or frosting. Thank you Katie for taking out that line. I just stumbled onto this from doing a simple google search. For me and perhaps others, we LOVE peanut butter but it does not always return the love.
This may be a real trick to help enjoy that peanut heaven without adding too many calories. Remember, 4 calories per gram of carbs but 9 for fat. Being a fitness person, I go through lean bulks and more lean periods for either to compete or just look and feel healthier. I am always looking for healthy ideas and I think this may be a winner. Thanks for posting this!
I love almond butter and peanut butter and this way I can eat even more! Love the spread-ability factor too. Clearly made by a company that also makes stir-required peanut butter, this one was definitely on the oily side. It was solidly okay, but nothing to write home about. This unassuming jar was our surprise favorite.
Who woulda thought Whole Foods' house brand knew peanut butter so well? The perfect, spreadable texture, this peanut butter boasted perfect levels of sweet and salty. It had the rich peanut-y taste that adults will appreciate, but a smooth, easy texture that will appeal to kids. And us somethings, too, frankly. These peanut butters are the ones that are easiest to find at just about every grocery store or bodega. They're the brands we grew up with, and the ones easiest to eat right out of the jar.
All three of us were ready to dismiss Reese's peanut butter, expecting it to taste more like the candy than anything we want to put on a sandwich. But we were wrong. While it was definitely one of the sweeter peanut butters, it wasn't offensive. The consistency was wonderfully creamy.
We could imagine this being a great base for cookies, a peanut butter cheesecake, or even a buttercream. And we wouldn't hate to find it smeared on toast.
Skippy was super sweet—in a faux-caramely, fake way—but the aftertaste was bitter. It tasted nostalgic—"like the Lunchables version of peanut butter," said Alex.
But it seemed liked that if we ate any more of it, we'd get a stomachache. Gabbie grew up on Skippy, and said, mildly shocked, "I can't believe I liked eating that for so many years. With the disappointment of other childhood favorites fresh, I'll admit I felt nervous to try the peanut butter I grew up with. I didn't need to be. Jif was mildly salty with a well-balanced sweetness.
It was "more natural tasting" than a lot of our other grocery store picks—which is to say, it actually tasted like peanuts. My childhood memories could remain intact. Cute label aside, this pick had an almost disturbingly thick, heavy consistency. While the initial taste was a-okay—salty and appropriately peanut-y—there was a strange, brown sugar aftertaste that we didn't love.
