...Almond & Peanut mixed nut butter, banana peanut butter, and valencia peanut butter. You better believe that upon arrival I cracked them open to dip in my finger and make sure they were tasty. The good news is they are not just tasty; they are divine. My favorite is the banana peanut butter. I made it a point to put it with my chocolate peanut butter oatmeal the morning after I got it, which was a great move. It was really REALLY good!dark chocolate, caramel peanut butter, and cherry vanilla peanut butter. Imagine the possibilities...I wanted to make a healthy recipe sample for my boot campers tonight, and I wanted to use my new peanut butter, so I came up with a delicious peanut butter cookie recipe. I used the plain peanut butter, and it was extremely tasty. It was a great mix of smooth PB with a few crunchy peanuts here and there. The cookies turned out REALLY good, and are only 50 calories each. BOOM! Such a great little snack to have on hand, and totally low fat.

Not bad, huh? Thanks again to Brittany for the finger-licking-good peanut butter! These peanut butters are all natural and made from Valencia peanuts. I would totally recommend them...especially the banana PB!!
What is your favorite way to eat Peanut Butter?? I LOVE PB & banana/apple, PB& honey sandwiches, PB & jelly, any form of peanut butter confection, ohhhh and PB and chocolate combos? Unreal. I used to be afraid of peanut butter until I realized how healthy it is for you. Do you have any amazingly delicious Peanut Butter Recipes for me??
P.S. I know some of you were having a hard time watching the Step Up Push Up Video from yesterday's exercise of the week. It should be fixed now if it wasn't working for you!!
