National Peanut Butter Day!

In a salute to National Peanut Butter Day, let’s simply eat some straight out of the jar! I go for Super Chunk, personally. You should enjoy whatever version is your favorite… from homemade, all-natural to creamy extreme. Have a peanut butter and jelly sandwich… or pop some peanut butter between 2 Ritz crackers or a couple of pretzel flats… or melt it down and drizzle peanut butter over ice cream… or make a splendid Asian peanut sauce to toss with some rice noodles, veggies, and a fave protein.

Of course, there is the goofy recipe for No Bake Peanut Butter Balls that, while Super Simple, somewhat silly, and gluten-free, is actually quite good!

2 c smooth peanut butter

½ c 100% pure maple syrup or honey (or other, of your choice)

¾ c coconut flour

Combine ingredients (adding a touch of milk or water, if it is too thick to handle) and use your hands to form into small balls, placing them in a single layer on a parchment paper-lined plate. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Store in the fridge or freezer.
