I am so excited for today!! It’s National Peanut Butter Lovers Day! What a great way to start out a month. Celebrate today with a little (or a lot) of Peanut Butter. If you can, make your own Peanut Butter. You check out my a few of my recipes on my recipe page or here is my basic one for Apple Cinnamon Peanut Butter.
Since today is a special day, I have a little giveaway for you and I started my very first blog hop. For my blog hop, all you have to do is add one or all your favorite Peanut Butter recipes. Now I know you have a few, I see them all the time, so post them, I want to make them. You know me and peanut butter!! Plus the code is below, so you can add it to your blog, if you’d like.
I saw this little book pop up in my e-mail last week, and I just had to buy it, and I had to buy one for you. It’s the Peanut Butter & Co Peanut Butter Cookbook. Oh man, this book is filled with delicious treats. There are dishes like grilled PB&J sandwiches, Peanut Butter Waffles, Peanut Butter Blondies, Peanut Butter and Shrimp, oh the list goes on and on. I made a dish from the cook book which is Peanut Butter and Berry Crumble. Hot dam does it taste good!
The topping to this crumble is unbelievable. It’s full of peanut butter, oats, brown sugar, flour and butter. It tastes amazing and it’s great on oatmeal and yogurt. Or served warm with ice cream. I love my crumbles, but this one is probably the best.
Just look at the Peanut Butter clumps.
In this recipe I used frozen fruit instead of fresh. You will bake it cook for 20 minutes with fresh fruit and about 45 minutes for frozen fruit. If the top gets to brown, just cover with aluminium foil. It cooked perfectly by doing that. Also I cut the butter and sugar down just a little in this recipe and it was sweet enough. I’ll be honest with you, the calories are high in this dish. That is why I use it for a topping on my yogurt. Since this is fun giveaway and a special day, I won’t tell you the calories, you just need to enjoy the day and this wonderful sweet crumble.
Peanut Butter Berry Crumble – Peanut Butter & Co Cookbook
2 tbsp. cornstarch
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup blueberries
1 cup raspberries
1 cup strawberries
1 1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
6 tbsp. butter
1/2 cup peanut butter (I used Peanut Butter & Co Bees Knees)
Preheat oven to 350
In a large bowl combine cornstarch, lemon juice, and 1/4 cup cold water. Stir until cornstarch is completely dissolved. Add granulated sugar, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and blackberries, and mix gently so as not to bruise the fruit. Place fruit mixture in an 11 x 7 baking dish.
In a separate bowl, combine rolled oats, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt. Cut in butter and peanut butter, stir until the mixture is consistency of coarse meal. Sprinkle on top of fruit mixture and bake for 20 minutes or until top is golden brown. Serve warm with ice cream.
Serving Size: 6 servings
Notes: If you use frozen fruit bake for 40 – 45 minutes, and half way through cover the top with aluminum foil
