“PB my way” recipe contest generates a record number of entries as America gets creative with the affordable pantry staple
Southern Peanut Growers (SPG) challenged consumers to get creative with peanut butter in our third annual PB my way recipe contest and you answered! We pledged to donate a jar of peanut butter for each recipe submitted as well as a jar for each new ‘like’ on our Facebook page. SPG is making arrangements now to donate 1,500 jars of peanut butter to Feeding America early this fall!
Americans are hungry for ways to s-t-r-e-t-c-h their grocery dollars so this year’s PB my way contest called for budget-friendly recipes. Winning recipes averaged just $1.36 per serving.
In addition to bragging rights, the top three winners each take home a year’s supply of peanut butter and the grand prize winner will receive a $500 Visa® gift card. View the winning recipes now:

Chai-Peanut Butter Apple Breakfast, submitted by Sugiyarti, Alaska, $1.91/serving
With ingredients like Chai tea, creamy peanut butter, honey and granola, this nutritious breakfast has a sweet Indonesian twist. “Chai is as beloved in Indonesia as peanut butter is in America. I’m happy to share this recipe that combines two of my favorite flavors,” says Sugiyarti.
Far East Peanutty Broccoli Salad, submitted by Mary, South Carolina, $0.53/serving
Elevate an ordinary side into the extraordinary. Ingredients like lime juice, soy sauce, red pepper flakes, green onions and peanut butter and broccoli florets make this salad the perfect combination of sweet and savory. “With two growing – and always hungry – boys, peanut butter has been a staple in my home for years. I love finding new ways to serve up this classic,” says Mary.
Crispy Peanut Butter-Pretzel Chicken, submitted by Nancy, Texas, $1.66/serving
What happens when you combine pretzels, peanut butter and chicken? The result is an out-of-this-world experience of sweet and savory, and a great way to spice up chicken. “While I love to scoop peanut butter straight out of the jar, this kid-approved recipe might be my second favorite way to enjoy it,” says Nancy.
