November is the month for great food! You don’t even have to wait until Thanksgiving to treat yourself. November is also National Peanut Butter Lovers Month! In honor of this designation, the Valley Park Blog is bringing residents suggestions for celebrating, right in your apartment: try one of these recipes that use peanut butter as a main ingredient.
Scotcheroos from Tastes Better From Scratch
The scotcheroo is a favorite no-bake treat of anyone who loves the genius combination of peanut butter and chocolate. Gather up some rice crispy cereal, white sugar, corn syrup, peanut butter, butterscotch chips, and semisweet chocolate chips to make this delectable, chewy treat.
Healthy Peanut Butter Mousse from Desserts with Benefits
Need some weekend plans? Try this recipe for a healthy twist on this classic treat. Here’s what the author has to say about it: “It’s all-natural, refined sugar-free, low-carb, high protein and totally nutritious. Don’t worry, though, it doesn’t taste like broccoli or anything. This super easy four-ingredient mousse is super rich, super creamy, perfectly sweet and packed with peanut butter flavor. After you get a little taste you won’t believe that this is actually good for you.”
Vegan Peanut Butter Milkshake from Loving It Vegan
Another option for those looking for a healthier treat that incorporates your favorite ingredients, this recipe will have you itching for more. It’s sure to hit the spot. As the author says, “Oooooh this peanut butter milkshake is soooo good. It’s actually ridiculous how good it is. Don’t make this unless you’re ready for some serious indulgence.” We love that all it takes is vegan vanilla ice cream, peanut butter, non-dairy milk, and crushed peanuts!
