National Peanut Butter Day and a KIND Giveaway!

Hi Everyone,

Today is a very special day, its National Peanut Butter Day!!  Now normally I would post a recipe for you, but I was stumped!  Actually I was overwhelmed!  I had so many ideas of peanut butter recipes in my head that I couldn’t decide what to make and then I got frustrated and ended up making nothing!  But I did make this, just a simple greek yogurt parfait, made with peanut butter, strawberries and my new favorite granola, KIND  Peanut Butter Whole Grain Clusters!!  I’m not kidding you, I have this parfait everyday, and sometimes twice on Saturday!   If you don’t know by now I am a yogurt freak!!  Than topping it with my favorite things, peanut butter and granola (my addiction), oh man!!  I swear I could give up all food and just eat this!!  If you don’t believe me ask my Husband, he always says, your having that again!!  Yes I am!!!  :)

Kind Peanut Butter Granola

Ohhh, my love of granola!  Let me count the ways!  If you’re a frequent reader of mine you already know that granola is my addiction!  I can eat, and eat, and eat it until I am so stuffed and I can’t eat any more!!  I need help!  Is there help for a granola addiction?  Well, I got this lovely little box in the mail, to help feed my addiction!

KIND Healthy snacks

When I opened it up it was full of healthy, all natural peanut butter goodness.  It was like Christmas for me!!!  Hello Peanut butter clusters and bars!  Welcome to my home, now get into my belly!!!

KIND Healthy Snacks

KIND Healthy Snacks was kind enough to let me sample their new  Peanut Butter Whole Grain Clusters,   Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate + Protein Bars and their   Peanut Butter & Strawberry Bars!  It’s like they made this little package especially for me!!!  The Peanut Butter Whole Grain Clusters are crispy, gluten free  made from a unique blend of 100% whole grains – amaranth, quinoa, oats, millet and buckwheat.   Plus it’s only 130 calories for 1/3 of a cup!  OK, I ate half a bag!  I poured a bowl to photograph and I took a piece and then another, next thing you knew I ate it all!!  It’s that good!!  I skipped dinner because I was so full!!  Darn that yummy granola!!

Kind Peanut Butter Granola

Plus they sent 4 each of the Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate + Protein Bars and their   Peanut Butter & Strawberry Bars.  OMG!!  So good!  These babies are going in my desk drawer for my mid morning snacks.  I debated about sharing them, but I don’t know?  I’m kind of selfish that way!  I know I’m a bad person!  But the KIND bars deliver the perfect combination of protein, carbs and heart healthy fats that keep you feeling fuller longer.  I need that!!  Plus what I like about KIND Bars and Granola is that it’s words you can pronounce!  None of that weird stuff that you have to Google because you have no clue what it is!!


I’m kind of feeling like a spokes person for KIND Healthy Snacks but I’m really excited about these new products that are healthy for you!!  Trust me when I say, I never promote items I wouldn’t eat or like myself and these treats are all me!!!  But I’m pretty sure you already know that!  After all they combined strawberries and peanut butter in a bar!!  Plus chocolate and peanut butter!  If you check out my recipe page, you know these are PB&P’s combos!!!

Kind Peanut Butter Granola

Since KIND Snacks was nice enough to send me this wonderful package of peanut butter goodies, they offered the same package to you!!  Yah!!!!  So instead of a recipe, I am having a fun giveaway!!!

This is what you get!

All you have to do is tell me what is your favorite way to eat granola or what is your favorite kind of granola?

Kind Peanut Butter Granola

  1. I love KIND bars and that’s my favorite way to eat granola. I might sprinkle granola over oatmeal, but the bars are my favorite by far. They make a great snack between meals to keep me from splurging on chips or unhealthy sweets.

  2. My new thing is granola over fresh strawberries and fat free cool whip. I did this the other night with the Kind Peanut Butter Whole Grain Clusters and it hit the spot.

    I’ve also signed up for emails from you :)

  3. Peanut butter is my favorite food and those Kind snacks look great! Granola is addictive but I especially like it in plain siggy’s Greek yogurt :)

  4. This is my favorite granola!! I love the Kind PB…yum!! I love it in Strawberry greek yogurt since it reminds me of PB&J a little :)

  5. I love granola, too, & could eat it every day. Usually I put it on yogurt with some berries, or chocolate chips for a treat. :)

    I followed you AND KIND snacks on twitter (those look amazing!)

  6. My favorite way to eat granola is mixed into yogurt, added into pancakes or just plain old by the handful! :) I pinned your pumpkin pancakes, and follow KIND on FB.
