Better'n Peanut Butter/ RECIPES

In honor, belated honor, of National Peanut Butter Day....here is a product I think worthy of a health minded nod and a huge heaping tablespoon of tasting!

Better'n Peanut Butter

40% lower in calories than good old fashioned PB and only 2.5 g of fat!!

It comes in orginal, but one of my faves is their chocolate PB version! Supposedly they have a banana one, lower salt, and a hot pepper one...haven't tried them yet.

Here is a recipe that we love post workouts or really just whenever. If you can't find BnPB in your local area, you can always use a natural PB instead.

POWERHOUSE (build-your-muscles-not-your-bootie) SMOOTHIE!

  • 1 medium banana, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 1/2 cup fat free vanilla flavored SILK unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 cup Better 'N Peanut butter (the chocolate one tastes like a dream in this recipe)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 ideal sugar or 3 tbsp honey
  • 10-12 ice cubes
Combine all ingredients process until smooth.



  • 1 cup Peanut Butter
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1 egg
  1. Mix
  2. Drop by spoonful onto parchment or silicone lined pan
  3. Bake at 350 for 6-8 mins (you want them still a bit soft, barely turning brown)

*****this stuff makes a mean peanut thai sauce since it has a hint of an almond/coconut undertaste!!*****

Try it out and let me know what you think
