Want Some Maranatha?

by HEAB on July 19, 2010

Last week, MaraNatha sent me samples of their various nut and seed butters to try. Thanks MaraNatha!


As you know, I’ve been craving the chocolate + PB combo like mad, and so guess which jar I opened first? Remember my oatmeal breakfast banana split with a drizzle of Dark Chocolate Peanut Spread? Nothing like a little hot fudge peanut butter sauce to start your day! I’ve also been enjoying the Sunflower Seed Butter which is nothing but roasted sunflower seeds and salt. I love unsweetened sunflower seed butter – have you tried it? The almond butter jars are up next, but you all already know I love that stuff. :)


Over the weekend I found myself dreaming of Vanilla Sugar’s Peanut Butter Cups…you know, the ones with the graham crackers in the center? However, I didn’t have any chocolate chips to make some of my own. So, I improvised. First I froze 2 TBSP of the Dark Chocolate Peanut Spread in a paper cupcake liner,


Voila, instant peanut butter cup.

and into my bowl of warm oat bran it went along with some crumbled graham crackers.


Vanilla Sugar, it was almost as good as your recipe…but not quite. :)

Look what else the kind folks at MaraNatha sent me?
