PB My Kid’s Way recipe contest called for kid favorites
In this year’s fourth annual PB My Kid’s Way recipe contest peanut butter lovers were encouraged to submit their favorite family recipes using peanut butter – anything from an afterschool snack to silly combinations. A one year supply (one case) of peanut butter was awarded to the top four finalists, and the grand prize winner was awarded an iPad. Below are the winning recipes – we encourage you to give them a try with your family!
Grand Prize Winner
Jammin’ Peanut Butter Sundae Parfait, submitted by Laurie from Massachusetts
Because this parfait has multiple elements – a peanut butter brownie, salted peanut butter caramel sauce and “jammin’ grape sauce” – you can choose to make the brownie as a stand-alone snack or go all the way with the sundae parfait. “My family goes absolutely nuts – I mean peanuts for this recipe! This recipe is fancy enough for company, but can also be served in paper cups in the backyard for some comfort food,” said Laurie.
Cows Out to Pasture, submitted by James from Illinois
This recipe not only tastes delicious, but is a perfect afternoon craft project for the family. Just put the ingredients into bowls or dishes, and everyone can create their own cows in the pasture. “I put this recipe together when I was twelve, and it’s still one of the most fun recipes I have made with peanut butter,” said James.
PBB&B Dogs, submitted by Rick from Washington
This banana “hot dog” provides all the fun, but with a healthy peanutty twist, whether you’re in your backyard or on the go. “My kids love this because it’s fun to eat, and it blew away their friends that came over for lunch,” said Rick. “I even brought it golfing with my buddies, and they all agreed it was a pretty good idea.”
No-Bake PB Energy Squares, submitted by Carlene from Illinois
One batch of these energy squares will feed the whole family, and with a deliciously chewy texture and peanut buttery flavor, they are sure to provide a boost for the afternoon lull. “My kids really like these no-bake cookies,” said Carlene. “They are sweet, chewy and fun to make – and they pack a lot more protein and fiber than your average cookie.”
Peanut Butter Cookie Oatmeal, submitted by Jen from Pennsylvania
Don’t be fooled by the name – this oatmeal may taste like a cookie, but packs a healthy punch. Family members can customize the oatmeal with ingredients such as bananas, maple syrup or milk. “I love this recipe because it tastes like a cookie, but is healthy enough for breakfast,” said Jen.
