Chocolate Chicken Mole
Ingrid makes her chicken mole with rotisserie chicken, so the whole dish comes together in a matter of minutes. And, thanks to fragrant spices, unsweetened chocolate and nutty peanut butter the dish tastes like it&rsquos been simmering away all day long.
Peanut Butter Broccolini
Even if you&rsquove only got a few tablespoons of peanut butter left in the jar you can still make something delicious! Molly mixes peanut butter with soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic and crushed red pepper to make a savory sauce for drizzling over green veggies.
Peanut Butter Incredibles
You only need peanut butter and five other ingredients (all of which are probably in your pantry and refrigerator right now) to make these mesmerizing dessert bars.
Thai-Inspired Quinoa Bowls with Pork
Creamy peanut butter is right at home with salty soy sauce, spicy chile-garlic sauce and tangy lime juice in these easy dinner bowls, inspired by the flavors of Thai cuisine.
Peanut Chicken Pasta
Ree&rsquos 5-star pasta is so easy to make &mdash and it comes together in just 35 minutes. She mixes creamy peanut butter with coconut milk, soy sauce, chile oil and lime juice for a sauce that&rsquos perfect over a mix of chicken, pasta and green beans.
Peanut Butter Cheesecake Pretzel Dip
The perfect midday pick-me-up, this 10-minute snack is sweet-and-salty perfection. The key to this recipe is whipping the cream cheese well. Make sure it&rsquos light and fluffy before you add the other ingredients. That will make the dip easy to scoop up with pretzels!
Avocado Veggie Rolls
Give peanut butter a hint of spiciness (with Sriracha) and it becomes the perfect sauce for the inside of these rice-and-veggie rolls.
Spicy Peanut Sauce
This peanut sauce with the punch of cayenne is great for hot or cold noodles or for dipping grilled chicken skewers.
Chewy Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars
These sweet-and-nutty bars are as simple to make as your classic crispy cereal treats. But, instead of holding everything together with melted marshmallows, Molly warms a mixture of sugar and peanut butter.
Gluten Free Beach Themed Party Treats
I thought it would be fun to use them to create a gluten free beach themed treat. The PB&J Bars are soft and chewy, and when topped with all natural peanut butter and some cereal crumbs, made the perfect little patch of sandy beach.
To make my little beaches come to life, I wanted to add a sea creature and chose to make starfish because they are often found on the beach.
By blending a PB&J bar with some peanut butter, dates, and dried cherries, I got a really flavorful, soft dough that could be shaped into a cute little starfish. I attached two candy eyes and my beach scenes were complete.
These treats are so easy to create, look festive enough for a party, but are easy enough to make for an afternoon snack.
To make the power bar dough for the starfish, simply pop one PB&J Bar into a mini food processor or blender along with dates, dried cherries, and peanut butter. Pulse until you get really fine crumbs.
When you scoop out some of the crumbs, you should be able to squeeze them and they will hold together.
Then squeeze all the crumbs together into a disc and flatten that out to about 1/4 inch thickness.
Use a small 1 1/2 inch star shaped cookie cutter to cut out 9 stars. When you get to the last bit of dough, just push it into the cutter, then lift the cutter up and off the dough.
Once you have your stars cut, pinch the points on each star to better shape them into starfish.
To create the sandy beaches you’ll need to crush some Honey Crunch Gluten Free Cereal into fine crumbs.
Spread peanut butter over top of the PB&J Bars then sprinkle them with crumbs.
To make the starfish come to life, dab a bit of peanut butter on the back of a candy eye and press it onto the starfish.
Then attach the starfish to the sandy beach bars using more peanut butter.
You can store these bars in an airtight container for up to a few days if you are making them for a party or they can be eaten right away.
How fun would these gluten free treats be to pack up and bring to the beach?

PB & J Healthy Oatmeal Cookies
Made with just just 4 ingredients – bananas, oats, peanut butter and jelly, these PB & J Healthy Oatmeal Cookies are meant to eat warm right out of the oven for a fun spin on my 3-ingredient healthy cookie recipe.
I’m so addicted to making these cookies. Whenever my bananas are over-ripe, I whip up a batch which takes only minutes. These are best when the bananas are super ripe as their natural sweetness is what’s used to sweeten the cookies. Keep in mind they aren’t crisp like a dessert cookie. Instead these are moist and chewy and best eaten warm, right out of the oven. They are great as an afternoon snack or healthy enough to have for breakfast if you wish. You can easily make half the portion with just 1 banana if you want to make less.
I’ve made them with walnuts which tasted like banana bread, I’ve tried them with chocolate chips which so yummy! This time I decided to switch things up and see what happens if I add some chunky peanut butter to the batter and top them with reduced sugar jelly – yum!
