Peanut Butter Boy To The Rescue

by HEAB on March 18, 2013

So, I stopped doing formal reviews of products on the blog a while ago for several reasons, mostly because they were starting to feel icky?  Lame?  I don’t know, they just no longer felt right.  I also don’t have a lot of time to blog these days, and therefore, I like to fill this space with my own words, thoughts, creations, etc.  That being said, when Nick, aka Peanut Butter Boy wrote to me about the unveiling of his own brand of peanut butter (I was a taste tester when he began developing the product), I immediately agreed to some samples and a review.  Nick was one of the first food blogs I discovered, and his peanut butter creations are both creative and delicious.  If you love peanut butter, you will love Peanut Butter Boy.

I’m a crunchy girl myself, but I busted into the smooth peanut butter first for a little cookie baking…

I read about The MacroChef’s Gingery Peanut Butter Cookies via Maggie last week, and when Nick’s samples arrived, I knew I must make these cookies.

I subbed a combo of oat & sweet rice flour for the whole wheat and skipped the molasses since I didn’t have any. I also used butter instead of oil.  Ginger + peanut butter = a very enjoyable combo, but I know the cookies would be even better with molasses.  Ginger cookies need molasses, but these still turned out great with a strong peanut flavor.

I eventually finished off the jar of smooth peanut butter like this…

Late night snack of leftover cold brown rice and peanut butter.  Don’t knock it ’til you try it.

Peanut Butter Boy Peanut Butter is an all natural no-stir peanut butter.  The only ingredients are roasted peanuts, palm oil, and sea salt.  The peanuts are unblanched, meaning the skins are left on during manufacturing, resulting in a peanut butter packed full of flavor, fiber, and antioxidants.  The taste is powerful – peanuty and salty, and it’s nice to have a no-stir peanut butter that doesn’t contain any added sugars.  Peanut Butter Boy, you done good!  Thanks for sharing with me.  To learn more about Peanut Butter Boy Peanut Butter, click here and to purchase online, click here.

Haven’t tried the crunchy yet, but it will happen soon.  Very soon!
