Christmas Biscotti

I intended to create a festive cranberry-pistachio biscotti combo last Christmas but ran out of time. Twelve months later, I finally did it! One of the advantages of waiting is that I had white chocolate chips on hand this year. I’ve been experimenting with them lately; otherwise, it never would have occurred to me [click headline for more — or photo in Facebook]

Peanut Butter Banana Bagels

Ever since posting a Cinnamon Raisin Bagel recipe this summer, I’ve wanted to try something more exotic. While it’s not uncommon to see peanut butter and banana paired together, you’re not going to find this bagel flavor combo at a typical supermarket.

Though I chose to go with walnuts as the add in for [click headline for more — or photo in Facebook]

Extra Peanutty Chocolate Chip Cookies

Crunchy peanut butter, puffed brown rice, rolled oats, whole wheat flour and peanuts add an adventurous twist—as well as extra fiber, protein, vitamins and minerals—to this version of chocolate chip cookies. These have more butter and sugar than my typical “savvy” cookies, but less than most traditional recipes.

Peanut Butter Banana Muffins

I’ve tried combining peanut butter, banana and cocoa in tea breads several times but haven’t had any luck so far.

I still haven’t unraveled that mystery, but [click headline for more — or photo in Facebook]

Peanut Butter Gran-ookies

Imagine combining a chewy granola bar with a crispy marshmallow treat and trail mix, and you’ll have a sense of what these cookies are like.

We thought Matt had coined a new term when he came up with Granookie, [click headline for more — or photo in Facebook]

Peanut Butter and “Jelly” Bread

While our California Jelly Bread makes the most of grape juice and raisins to produce a jam-like flavor, you have to add peanut butter—if you want it—after it’s baked. This loaf, however, includes peanut butter as one of the main ingredients, so it’s baked right in with the jelly substitutes.

Peanut Butter Party Biscotti

These cookies make great gifts, but after tasting one, you’ll find it hard to give them away. While not exactly low in calories, they contain significantly less sugar and fat than most holiday sweets. Plus, they offer peanut-powered protein and whole grain goodness that can be enjoyed in guilt-free moderation even after your New Year’s [click headline for more — or photo in Facebook]

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Ice Cream

This is an incredibly rich ice cream, and you don’t have to remember to buy whipping cream or half and half in order to make it. With just a few canned goods you can buy on sale and stock in your pantry year round, you can whip up a batch of this in no time.
