I like to think of peanut butter as God’s gift to us. It’s tasty, nutritious, and there is a type for everyone: smooth, creamy, crunchy, chunky, sodium-free, sugar-free, organic, you name it.
Regardless of your preferences, listed below are the top seven peanut butter combinations that work with every peanut butter type, so you organic lovers can still eat with your chunky lover friends, and everyone is happy.
1. Peanut Butter and Oreos
For you Parent Trap lovers, this combination of peanut butter and chocolatey goodness is old news, but for those who have yet to try this magical duo, now you have no excuse. Try making this peanut butter Oreo pie, for starters.
2. Peanut Butter and Celery
Sometimes we want to eat healthy, so why not pair some delicious peanut butter with some refreshing celery? If you’re feeling adventurous, try putting raisins on top of your celery for a little something extra.
3. Peanut Butter and Bananas
Whoever thought of putting peanut butter and bananas together deserves an award. Not only is this a delicious healthy snack, but it is also a feel-good snack, too. Try peanut butter and banana on rice cakes for a great post-workout snack, or make these chocolate peanut butter banana pops.
4. Peanut Butter and Apples
Sprinkle a little cinnamon on this combo and you will have yourself a winner. I highly recommend eating this snack with a nice glass of milk.
5. Peanut Butter and Waffles
If you are in a hurry and need a quick breakfast, putting peanut butter on a delicious, warm waffle is a quick and easy way to start the day. YUM.
6. Peanut Butter and Jelly
The classic American sandwich (or what I like to call my lunch every day for 10 years) is the PB&J — it’s a staple meal when feeling hungry, tired, happy, sad, and basically every other emotion. While this combo is most popular on bread, there are other ways to eat PB&J, too (I recommend on crackers).
7. Peanut Butter and a Spoon
If you can’t find anything with which to combine your peanut butter (almost an impossible feat), peanut butter tastes great with more peanut butter. Just grab a spoon and dig right in.
