Eating healthier…….

Limit your use of spreads high in saturated fat like butter and cream cheese. Replace them with a thin spread of peanut butter or other nut spreads, hummus, low-fat cheese spreads or avocado.

Peanut Butter and Chili……………

If you are making Vegetarian Chili add a heaping amount of smooth and creamy peanut butter. The subtle hint of sweet paired with the peanut’s inherent nuttiness is enough to balance out the spice and acid of vegetarian chili.

All that’s required to make fresh-from-the-oven cookies is five ingredients, a single bowl and 35 minutes. “These cookies are a staple in our house,” says Top Chef ’s Season 14 champ Brooke Williamson. “The almond butter they call for is loaded with healthy fats and adds protein.

One of America’s Favorites – Peanut Butter Cookies

Peanut butter cookies with peanut chunks

A peanut butter cookie is a type of cookie that is distinguished for having peanut butter as a principal ingredient. The cookie originated in the United States, its development dating back to the 1910s. If crunchy peanut butter is used, the resulting cookie may contain peanut fragments.

 

George Washington Carver (1864-1943), an American agricultural extension educator, from Alabama’s Tuskegee Institute, was the most well known promoter of the peanut as a replacement for the cotton crop, which had been heavily damaged by the boll weevil. He compiled 105 peanut recipes from various cookbooks, agricultural bulletins and other sources. In his 1925 research bulletin called How to Grow the Peanut and 105 Ways of Preparing it for Human Consumption, he included three recipes for peanut cookies calling for crushed or chopped peanuts.

It was not until the early 1930s that peanut butter was listed as an ingredient in the cookies.

Peanut butter fork scored cookies

Early peanut butter cookies were either rolled thin and cut into shapes, or else they were dropped and made into balls; they did not have fork marks. The first reference to the famous criss-cross marks created with fork tines was published in the Schenectady Gazette on July 1, 1932. The Peanut Butter Cookies recipe said: “shape into balls and after placing them on the cookie sheet, press each one down with a fork, first one way and then the other, so they look like squares on waffles.”

Pillsbury, one of the large flour producers, popularized the use of a fork in the 1930s. The Peanut Butter Balls recipe in the 1933 edition of Pillsbury’s Balanced Recipes instructed the cook to press the cookies using fork tines. These early recipes do not explain why the advice is given to use a fork, though. The reason is that peanut butter cookie dough is dense, and unpressed, each cookie will not cook evenly. Using a fork to press the dough is a convenience of tool; bakers can also use a cookie shovel (spatula).

Is Peanut Butter Good for Diabetics?
From the Diabetes Self Management website –


For many, peanut butter is a staple. From growing up eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to spreading peanut butter on crackers to, yes, eating a spoonful of peanut butter straight out of the jar, it’s not uncommon for most people’s kitchen cupboards to have a jar or two of this nut butter within easy reach. But is peanut butter all that it’s hyped up to be? And how does it affect your diabetes, if at all?

What is peanut butter?
The website Wikipedia describes peanut butter as “a food paste or spread made from ground, dry-roasted peanuts. It often contains additional ingredients that modify the taste or texture, such as salt, sweeteners or emulsifiers.”

That description pretty much hits the nail on the head. Peanut butter is so basic that you can make it yourself. Simply toss some roasted peanuts into a food processor and process until a thick, creamy paste forms. You now have peanut butter. Search the internet for how to make peanut butter and you’ll come across plenty of recipes. Some recipes may suggest adding some salt and/or honey, for example……………………………….

Peanut Butter-Banana Frozen Yogurt Cake
This grown-up version of ice cream cake is a little sweet and a little salty. The yogurt cake gets its distinct flavor from freeze-dried banana slices–they can be pulverized into a powder (unlike regular dried bananas, which have a chewy texture)……………………….

Can’t decide between coconut cream and banana cream? In this simple recipe, we’ve combined two delicious desserts into one, so you don’t have to choose! The creamy coconut filling spooned over luscious ripe bananas in an oil-based pastry crust makes for a dessert that’s surprisingly low in fat……………………………….

We’ve taken classic Elvis-sandwich flavors–banana, bacon and peanut butter–and stirred them into easy overnight oats in this healthy breakfast recipe. Make a bunch of jars at the beginning of the week for ready-when-you are morning meals all week long…………………………..
