We are a peanut butter household. I say that and what I mean is that we have jars upon jars of peanut butter sitting on our countertop or stored in the pantry. We are never without it. And, according to my husband, it always has to be Peter Pan® brand peanut butter because the others just don’t compare. Even the dog – when we’ve scraped the majority of peanut butter out of the jar, the jar then belongs to her and she does everything short of stuffing her entire face in to get the goods.
We’re those people who make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches because childhood, amirite? But we also have no qualms about just scooping a heaping spoonful of PB and enjoying it just like that. And then sometimes I get a little bake-happy (not too often) and make soft peanut butter cookies that are gone in two seconds because what beats fresh and warm cookies? Nothing.
And then we have granola bars, which is one of my favorite things to eat and make. I really should just have a granola bar series here on the blog. Maybe that’ll be a thing…stay tuned.
But, anyway, granola bars can be so versatile and so if you’re like me and get sick of the same food pretty quickly, you can always be changing it up. Granola bars never take a long time to make either. And they always yield enough so you can take to work for breakfast or even bring along as a snack to the park.
Today’s granola bar is all about the PB from Peter Pan and their new Simply Ground peanut butter that I purchased at Walmart. The reason I love this peanut butter is because there’s a real nice balance of texture between smooth and crunchy – it’s creamy with a BIT OF CRUNCH. We have so many peanut butters because we go between creamy, crunchy, honey roasted, etc., so it’s nice to finally have an option that combines everything into one! What I like even more is that there are no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. And you don’t even have to stir it like some other brands. AND the wide-mouth jar is perfect because I don’t know about you, but I think apples dipped in peanut butter is heaven. I mean, the list of features on this peanut butter just keep getting better.
