    We have 6 jars of peanut butter but group home staff never uses any peanut butter for any meals for some reason... I don't know why one the staff keeps bringing peanut butter for the home but we got tons of it. Anyone know any good easy and cheap recipes using peanut butter?


    Edit: anyone know any good recipes using raisins as well? Christine over here reminded me we have 30 small boxes of those...

    Peanut butter cookies and fudge, if you can make them (they are easy to make though). Homemade Reeses cups are easier-ish in that you could manage to make them with a microwave.
    You can try it on a bunch of different stuff, and it's often times at least ok.
    I like it with toast, sometimes with bacon (especially honey roasted peanut butter).
    I also like to sometimes just eat a spoon of it. But I don't have many recipes. If you can make the candies and cookies I'll share the recipes.

    I can probably do the candies and cookies depending on the ingredients

    Make a peanut butter sauce with sliced, roasted bell pepper and a few raisins. (you can add some cooked diced chicken or tofu if you want)
    Mix it into a pan full of fresh baby spinach and warm gently until the spinach just begins to wilt.
    Pour it on to a bed of couscous.

    Yummy.

    Edit,
    I sometimes add broken walnut pieces to the mix

    The fudge is mostly sugar (and a bit more if you don't have corn syrup) and a metal spoon for stirring. Cookies I don't recall anything too unusual. But you'll need cooling racks. The reeses cups you do need powdered sugar, and other than that if I remember right it's chocolate chips and cupcake wrappers.

    It's too early for roast and chop and all that.
    Boil and stir and keep stiring, that's how you keep it simple when the mind is still kind of blugh.:p

    @ChristineM

    You just reminded me that we also
    have 30 small boxes of raisins and no one here even eats raisins.

    5 of them are 16oz and the last one is 28 oz

    Or mix them in with oatmeal when you make it. I like to put the raisins in the cold water and then raise it to a boil. The raisins plump a bit and it adds a bit of raisin flavor even if you somehow avoid one.

    Not really a raisin thread but talking of putting them in water. I will put them to soak/infuse in hot black tea overnight then use both the raisins and liqueur in making Yorkshire tea cakes

    One of life's great pleasures is nice coarse whole
    wheat bread with PB&J. The "J" is ideally fruit
    conserves (no sugar)...just good strong fruit flavor.

    I can't believe no one has suggested "Ants on a log"! Grab some celery, fill the stalk with peanut butter, top with a line of raisins.

    If you have a real sweet tooth, add some honey.

    Cream cheese works as a substitute for the peanut butter too, if you ever finally run out of it.

    Oh wow, and i thought we shared a brain cell, but i am big enough to admit when I'm wrong.

    Thai peanut butter sauce is ambrosia of the gods and you know me and gods dont usually mix
