A few years ago, I thought there was only one kind of peanut butter. The only kind I knew was the one sold at regular supermarket, you know, just plain peanut butter.
Who knew there were so many kinds of nut butters? So many flavors?
I think there’s a butter for every nut.
If there’s a nut, there’s a butter for it right?
If you google nut butters, you’ll know what I mean about the variety that is available out there.
I love to add peanut butter to my oatmeal, pancakes, toast & etc. because it adds healthy fat to my meal. Fat is good. My body likes healthy fat and helps keep hunger away.
In my opinion, Peanut Butter & Co’s Mighty Maple has to be one of the best tasting peanut butter I’ve had. I’ll have to say it’s in my top list of favorite peanut butters. (Note: I’m saying peanut butter, not almond butters or other butters)
I loved it so much that I ordered it in bulked on Amazon (pack of 6). I saved money and shipping was free.
So what do I do when the container is almost empty? When you can’t scrape any more of the peanut butters on the bottom?
Enter Oats In A Jar (OIAJ). Love this trick. No peanut butter goes to waste.
(I know that blog readers know what OIAJ is, but I’m introducing this trick to newbies).
Put your cooked and warm oatmeal in the jar and you will be able to eat all the leftover peanut butter on the side of the container and everything on the bottom too. Scrape if you want, but it’s not necessary because the butter will melt into the oatmeal.
No peanut butter left behind.
Check out the nutritional stats below. Not too shabby.
On days when I just want to be plain Jane and just eat a plain bowl of oats, this is the peanut butter that I eat it with. It’s creamy, it’s tasty and provides enough sweetener for my liking.
P.S. I hope one day, that I will be able to dine at Peanut Butter & Co’s sandwich shop in NYC. It’s on my must-try list next time I visit the Big Apple.
