Peanut butter is my lifeblood. I cannot live without it, I am sure. I eat enough peanut butter that I have a preferred brand (Krema, smooth). I certainly could not run without peanut butter, because it's the perfect balance of protein, carbs and fat to get me going. Every now and then, I can manage to not eat it right out of the jar and add it to other recipes. In honor of National Peanut Day, here are my favorite recipes featuring peanuts!
