Sweet cookies, savory sauces, granola, sandwiches or just on a spoon peanut butter is delicious! I don't know if you can really truly appreciate a good peanut butter unless you have made it yourself. When I was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Africa I grew my own food and had to sometimes convince my tastebuds of new and unusual combinations! There was a lot of malnutrition in my area so I thought, what better than smashing these ground nuts and mixing it into anything the children were eating! Of course they loved it (and so did I!) Fresh nuts, toasted over a fired then smashed until the butter forms.... nutritious and delicious perfection!

I LOVE peanut butter very much! Of course there are all the regular ways like cookies, graham crackers w/marshmallow,etc. My favorites are for dinner;cottage cheese with peaches in light syrup and peanut butter on some type of whole grain bread sliced thick & toasted...so that it is crispy on the outside & still soft on the inside. My favorite lunches are #1. granny smith slices smeared thickly with peanut butter, #2. Greek yogurt with bear naked granola and peanut butter. Snacks, dry cereal such as Post bitesize shredded wheat with honey & nuts, banana & p.b. on the side to dip into. Peanut butter pretzels. NOW, I have to go and eat my lunch! This has made me very hungry.

simply delicious all by it self, peanut butter is a food ive enjoyed since childhood. i loved opening my brown bag lunch at school to find a perfectly diagonal cut peanut butter (sometimes paried with jelly or a banana) sandwich along with a note from mom hoping i was smiling and having a great day at school. these memories return at the sound of the peanuts griding in the machine when we stop to stock up on fresh ground peanut butter from whole foods!nothing like a crisp locally grown apple slice with tiny dollop of peanut butter after a hard training run or ride. filling and nutritous, but more importantly delicious!

I am a mother of two, one with down syndrome and autism and one who is very high maintenance. I have to confess that I eat a peanut butter sandwich everyday and sometimes twice if nothing's around that sounds good. It is my comfort food, and peanut butter is good to me no matter how I have it. So with these two amazing but exhausting girls, I look to my pb sandwich to get me emotionally and physically through the day.

I am soooo into homemade marshmallows and marshmallow fluff. I asked Chef Ani at the Minneapolis store if she had a recipe for marshmallows and she gave me the best one ever. With the homemade fluff, my kids (4 of them, plus spouses) and grandkids (7 of them) are rediscovering a good old peanut butter and marshmallow fluff sandwich. I make a couple of batches of fluff a week to keep up with them.

It's breakfast every morning! I use two slices of live sprouted grain English muffins, toasted with a little coconut oil, and then I put down a layer of peanut butter and a layer of banana slices. Topped off with a little agave nectar or chocolate syrup (depending on the anticipated stress factor for the day) and I've got a fantastic breakfast sandwich that's perfect with coffee. You'll never get that at McDonalds!

Ok, peanut butter is one of those "ahhhh, I'm home" foods for me, so I love it on A LOT of things. When I make buckwheat pancakes, I do so in fairly large batches and refrigerate or freeze the rest. So, I reheat the pancakes and add peanut butter and a little fruit preserve on top of each one... DELICIOUS!!!! Ok, my absolute favorite way to enjoy peanut butter is in a smoothie! My usual is frozen yogurt, frozen black cherries, frozen strawberries, some vanilla soymilk, a little honey, and about 2 heaping tablespoons of creamy organic peanut butter. Blend it all to perfection and it tastes like a liquid pb&j sandwich!! YUM!!

I love it right out of the jar ... with a spoon ... anytime. When I really feel a need to boost my energy, one spoonful does it ... gives me that boost and satisfies my hunger. I love the stuff!

every week i have to buy a new jar of pb! let's see, i eat a little bit of pb with microwaved frozen strawberries(berry soup) for breakfast or for a tasty treat throw in a little bit o' dark chocolate. i make peanut butter frosting for cupcakes, peanut butter cookies, pb fudge,pb in smoothies, pb and hazelnut spread, pb thai sauce with tofu. Oh yeah! and pb on a spoon is an absolute fav of mine-obviously!The list can go on! you can totally make anything with pb goodness. so i'd make anything with that case.

I enjoy peanut butter however it's prepared! Most frequently off a spoon, but often over ice cream or in cake. Delish!

A case of peanut butter would make my family go nuts! We love to make peanut butter cookies, spicy peanut sauce, peanut and pineapple soup, and chocolate peanut butter pie. We like it straight out of the jar, over ice cream, and as the tasty part of edible play dough. My husband's favorite "amuse bouche" is a slice of toast with peanut butter on it just before dinner. I think if we couldn't eat peanut butter anymore, my kids might leave home.

We eat peanut butter sandwiches with either fresh sliced apples or applesauce (instead of jelly) and then sprinkle cinnamon on! It is so delicious! I eat this all the time, but made a point of eating it when labor started with both of my children - it's a great way to fuel up for a day of labor!

I'd make lots of pbb (peanut butter & banana) sandwiches, cold peanut noodle salads, and peanut butter oatmeal bars! I'd also put lots of blobs of pb in bowls of hot oatmeal.

I use peanut butter on a daily basis. I literally put it on everything from bread to ice cream to veggies. Recently, I've been tracking my peanut butter intake and I consume a half to 3/4 of a jar everyday...I must be pregnant if i'm eating all this peanut butter, but I haven't craved pickles and PB yet! If I had a case of peanut butter I would stop printing out the $1 off coupon for every jar i purchase at Whole Foods. I would continue to use half to 3/4 a jar a day without a care about running out. But my favorite thing to do with peanut butter is to eat it by the spoonful.

I always loved peanut butter on raw celery, but I found out recently that peanut butter and raw carrots are even better!

Sometimes I call my boyfriend "the peanut butter monster." He goes through a jar in less than a week. Together we eat lots of PB&J sandwiches, but he eats it on everything. From putting spoonfuls in his cereal, to spreading it over pancakes... peanut butter is definitely one of his staples.

Straight up. Right out of the jar. Utensils? ha. Fingers, celery sticks, apple wedges, shredded wheat bites, animal crackers... If I'm feeling classy, or need to stir the separations I use a knife or spoon. You do NOT want to go near my PB jar. For your own safety. Memory Lane: For birthdays, most kids want to bring in funfetti cupcakes. In second grade what did I ask for? Ants on a log. (celery with peanut butter and raisins.) My mom was shocked, but granted my wish...I couldn't have been happier, despite some disappointment from the rest of the children. Bring on the peanut deliciousness.

Peanut butter is my number one favorite food. In an attempt to overcome an eating disorder I had stop feeling guilty after I made that first sandwich. I cannot get enough of it!!! Sanwiches must be made. My sandwich always has to be on a whole grain bread with seeds. It is nuttier that way! I like my sandwiches in three ways: With jam or jelly (strawberry or grape wine) Cottage cheese tomato and lettuce Maybe with a case I could branch out?!

I love peanut butter in so many ways. My kids eat it almost daily on toast or a PB&J. Oh, but chewy PB are so addictive. If I won, I would donate most of it to the local food pantry.

Peanut butter. Sweet and sticky, delicious and gooey, there's nothing like it. Who ever thought a jar of peanuts, salt, and oil would bring so many smiles. It's the universal food that puts you in a good mood. On noodles or bread, crackers or apples, with bananas or honey, that tablespoon of oh-so-yummy is always worth your money.

I would use the organic peanut butter on my organic granny smith apples.And also organic celery.I could use it in the dishes that I would make for dinner,with chicken and wild rice.And other things,like salads.And I could put the peanut butter on top of a chocolate bar.I would put peanut butter on some plantain chips,or some cassava root chips.

Okay, i think that i might have to list two of my favorite peanut butter combos. First, hemp waffles covered in peanut butter w/ dark maple syrup! Second, I take slices of granny smith apples spread PB and add a heaping helping of sprouts. So much crunch and peanut butter heaven!
