Peanut Butter Berry Crumble

Hi Everyone,

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

For the giveaway:  I am giving a brand new, never opened Peanut Butter & Co. Cookbook, a jar of my homemade Maple Cinnamon Peanut Butter (best PB ever, I’m not kidding about that!) and a few other goodies, that will be a surprise, but it will make you happy, trust me.

  6. Hello!!!!!!!!!!!!! I follow you on twitter and although have never commented, always always come to your blog!! I am the BIGGEST nut butta lova!!!! nomz nomz! I just had to comment for this giveaway!! I love PB on everything!! I love making these pancakes from fellow blogger “PeanutButter and Jenny”

    1/4 cup whole wheat flour
    1/4 cup oatmeal
    2 T wheat germ
    1/2 mashed banana
    1/2 Tbsp almond oil
    1 “flax egg”
    almond milk until batter reaches desired consistency (a little more than 1/3 – 1/2 of a cup i’d say)

    almond butter
    maple syrup

    * These are bacon pancakes but i omit it, not really a pork eater =/ although im sure the combo tastes fantastic!

    For my snacks i do:
    *chobani, granola, PEANUT BUTTER, and a drizzle of honey.
    *whole wheat tortilla, peanut butter, banana all rolled up nicely!
    * honey crisp (my fav apple), peanut butter (or almond if i have in pantry), on a piece of millet bread! nomz!
    *rice cake w/ peanut butter once again =p and applesauce or jam.

    And finally a cookie recipe (only appropriate). I love love love Eating Bird Food’s blog! Shes wonderful! Her PB cookie recipe is so easy to do and i love that it only requires 5 ingredients!! FIVE, that’s it!

    1 cup peanut butter(a salted one)
    3/4 cup cane sugar
    1 egg
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda

    Preheat an oven to 350°. In a bowl, combine all the ingredients and stir until it all has come together.
    Line 2 baking trays with parchment paper. Tear chunks of dough off from the bowl and roll in between your hands to make dough balls about 1 1/2 inches thick.
    Put the balls about 2 inches apart on the lined baking sheet. Dip a fork in water and press down twice on each dough ball in a perpendicular fashion to make a crisscross pattern. Bake for 12-14 minutes, or until the edges firm up and the center is beginning to set. Let the cookies cool completely before trying to lift them from the tray.

    ** I have tweeted your giveaway, liked your page on Facebook, I follow you on twitter already, and i subscribed to blog to receive emails. If i had a blog id do last one, but i don’t, not YET at least =))**

    • Jennifer @ Peanut Butter and Peppers says

      Wow, what great recipes, I want to try them all out!! Yum!!! The pancakes look super delish!!!

  7. My favorite peanut butter recipe is definitely puppy chowder with extra peanut butter of course. It is so delicious 🙂

  8. Cassandra Bishop says

    This recipe looks delicious! I’ve been eating more peanut butter than usual lately, this looks like it could satisfy my craving 🙂 I think one of my favorite peanut butter treats are these delicious Serogy’s Peanut Butter Crisp bars. It’s a family-owned chocolate company in De Pere, WI and they make the most creamy peanut butter goodness bars. For homemade treats, I’m in love with your peanut butter cookies, I’ve made four batches in about two weeks…
    As for the giveaway, I’m following you on twitter, I’ve tweeted about your contest, subscribed to newsletter and like you on FB!
    Happy Peanut Butter Lovers Day!

  9. Rebecca W. says

    Thank you for the giveaway and Happy Peanut Butter Lovers Day! How can you not be in a good mood on a day like this?!

    My favorite peanut butter recipe has to be a peanut butter (homemade, of course), cocoa powder, frozen banana, and almond milk smoothie! (emphasis on the peanut butter) It probably accounts for half of the smoothie.

  10. My favorite peanut butter treat is good ol’ peanut butter cookies! I always use a super easy recipe that I learned as a child: 1 cup of peanut butter, 1 cup of sugar, 1 egg! I also like to slightly underbake them so they’re nice and gooey. 🙂

  11. I like you on Facebook (An Organic Wife)!

  12. My favorite easy treat with peanut butter is to just have a banana and a spoonful of peanut butter! Dip banana in PB…yum…sometimes I’ll drizzle honey into the PB too.

    Otherwise, I LOVE Special K Bars, although I call them Special Krispie bars since I use Rice Krispies instead of Special K cereal.

    1 cup Sugar
    1 cup Light Corn Syrup
    1 1/2 cups Peanut Butter
    6 cups Rice Krispies
    6 oz Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
    6 oz Butterscotch Chips

    Bring sugar and corn syrup to a full boil in a pot over high heat. Remove from heat and add peanut butter, stir until ‘melted’ together. Add cereal and gently mix.

    Spread mixture into a buttered 9×13 pan.

    Melt chocolate and butterscotch chips together.

    Spread over bars.

    Cool, cut, and enjoy!

  13. I have “liked” you on Facebook. I am new to your blog and look forward to browsing through it more!

  14. My favorite peanut butter treat? Yea I don’t think I could ever narrow it down, but I suppose the buckeye truffles have a special place in my heart. Especially since they ratio of peanut butter to chocolate is so great!

    For National Peanut Butter Lovers Day I made these cookies and they are amazing. They taste just like homemade Girl Scout Do-Si-Dos. The only tweak I made to the recipe is I used skim milk instead of heavy cream for the filling and it was still amazing.
