Often when we think of peanut butter, our minds jump to the classic peanut butter and jelly combo. But peanut butter is one of the most versatile products, and here are three exciting ways to try it.

Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate

Another classic pairing is the wonderful peanut butter with chocolate. They both bring out an extra level of decadence in each other, and work well in a hot drink. Make your usual hot chocolate and then just stir in a teaspoon of peanut butter. 

Energy Balls

Peanut butter doesn’t have to always be super indulgent, and is a great ingredient due to its healthy fats and protein. In a large bowl, combine 100g of oats, 50g of desiccated coconut, 50g of raisins and two tablespoons of peanut butter. Roll into balls, pop in the freezer, and remove an hour before needed. A perfect energy hit for when on the go.

Stir Fry Sauce

As amazing as peanut butter is in a sweet context, it also works great in savory settings. Just mix one tablespoon of peanut butter with a tablespoon of chili oil, a tablespoon of rice vinegar and a teaspoon of honey. Add this to your favorite stir fry recipe.
