I have heated rice pasta and peanut butter together in a pan making a peanut butter sauce which is really good. I also use in the traditional way of making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

I stuff peanut butter into a cored out apple.

My mother used to make me a peanut butter omelette when I was a kid.  Before you even think to
say "yuck", just try it.....when the pnb melts from the hot egg, you're going to be surprised how good
this tastes.  I also used to eat pnb&j omelettes but like it better without the jam/jelly.  

Peanut flour behaves the same as almond flour.  I have a little grinder that allows me to take any
nut and make flour.

My father used to put chopped peanuts on top of a baked sweet potato.....

C Sharp, your Thai salad dressing looks awesome.  :)  I could imagine this dresssing on top of any type of compliant noodles.  Eaten cold or hot.

:D hello every one  :)

Peanut Butter Treats

1 cup fresh ground peanut butter
½ cup raw honey
½ cup soy protein powder
Ground flaxseed or chia seed, dried cranberries or carob chips for decoration (optional)

How to make:

1. Mix the peanut butter and honey together.
2. Add the soy protein powder and mix well. Be careful, the powder can be messy and may “poof”
    out of the bowl.
3. Form into balls and roll in flaxseed. Decorate with cranberries or carob chips if desired.
4 .Refrigerate for 1 hour before serving, if you can wait! Enjoy!

Actually, I never tried it yet  ;D, but it sounds good. Also, I found raw peanuts at the local open market.  Sometimes I eat them raw, sometimes I eat them steamed. Yum yum!

;D

Healthier Peanut Butter Cups

Ingredients:
1/2 cup cacao powder
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1/4 cup all natural, organic peanut butter* (or almond butter or cashew butter)
12 mini cupcake wrappers

Directions:
1.) Mix cacao powder, coconut oil, and maple syrup in a small bowl until a smooth consistency is formed.
2.) Place a small spoonful of the chocolate into the bottom of the cupcake wrappers.
3.) Add a small scoop of peanut butter to the chocolate and spread evenly.
4.) Top the peanut butter with a small scoop of the chocolate and spread evenly to coat the surface.
5.) Place the mini Peanut Butter Cups in the freezer.
6.) Serve once they are hardened and chilled (about 1 hour).
7.) If you are storing them to eat later, store in the freezer.

Carob powder can replace cocao
Any nut butter can replace pnb

Great recipes!  I'm copying three of them for my personal use.

I also spread peanut butter onto rice cakes and, of course, add an appropriate jam.  Very good!

What do I do with peanuts and peanut butter?  Eat too much of it!   :) :P ;D

Seriously, though, I purposely avoid buying them and choose almonds instead, because if they are around I am constantly eating them.

I read another naturaopath's article concerning peanuts.  Even though they may be a diamond or beneficial food, if eaten too much, they can suppress the thyroid's function.  So it is very wise to follow Dr. D.'s quantity/frequency guidelines I would think. ;)

When I feel indulgent, I crush some peanuts into little pieces, I make a batch of small lentil/tofu-balls with curry, I roll them in the peanutcrunch and fry them in olive oil.
Very, very good, but also very, very high in calories  :)

I enjoy them weekly but I also like to feed them to baby squirrels because it is astounding how much they promote brain growth in those little rascals. Feed them peanuts and they will seek you out. When they start seeking you out or coming closer to you, you may find them bringing you their own "nuts" in return on your back door step for all your kindness! I used to get gifts of hickory nuts left for me. :)

When they start clawing the screen door, wanting to come in the house, though, to eat nuts with you, that's a bit scary. :o

What do you A's do with your peanuts/ peanut butter


Not an A, BUT I would bet that all the stuff I have discovered to do with almondbutter translates beautifully to peanutbutter.  I was gonna say, but I see you already know, about how wonderful nutbutter sauces are on rice, noodles, etc.  I find they make great salad dressings, too, and you can make nutbutter "tahini" (or "tahina"), similar to sesame tahini (like for dipping pita bread or veggies in, or using as a dressing) by adding water, lemon juice, sea salt, garlic, and optionally a tad bit of olive or sesame oil).

I myself am cutting out the nutbutter for a while because I recently gained about SEVEN POUNDS  :o :o :o :o and I think I narrowed down the culprit to almondbutter.  I suddenly went crazy on the stuff this winter.  So, no more for this Gatherer.  I have to be so careful, mindful and intentional about my diet--that's the Gatherer's lot in life, but it's not a bad lot at all, not on this wonderful diet!  Still, no almondbutter for me until I get back down to my fighting weight.  And I'm also going to lose the dried cranberries, but I digress.

Anyway, my point is:  nutbutters are GREAT in sauces and salad dressings.  OH:  AND they are also great, believe it or not, in FRUIT SMOOTHIES!  If you put enough nutbutter in, it makes the smoothie very thick, like a faux ice cream!  Yup!  If I'm lyin', I'm fryin'!  (woot)

edited to add:  They (nutbutters) are also good as a snack if you simply add some dried fruit, such as cranberries, to it, and a little sea salt.  You could put cocoa powder and agave nectar in there and make your own, healthier "nutella".

Just a note, as I alluded to above, though:  nutbutters are REALLY fattening, so proceed with caution.  They are DELICIOUS and very good for us (if you choose the one right for your type, of course--O's, stay outta that peanutbutter!), but just go easy.
