A convert

Let me intoduce my new best friend:

Yes, it’s a sock.

A knee-length cashmere sock, one of a pair my mum gave me for Christmas a few years ago. Granted, it ain’t pretty but when it was -10 outside last winter and I could come in and put these babies on…. oh yes. :-) Love ya, mum!

I also found a new and very stylish use for it this morning, when after a mental knackering week, I woke up at silly o’clock, because of the light. In despair, don’t laugh, I tied this round my eyes, consoled myself with the thought no one could see me – and slept till 9.30am. Bliss…

And let me intoduce my second new best friend:

Yep, finally got there! I’ve always disliked peanut butter, which is weird as I eat about my own weight in almond butter, on a regular basis :-)

I also love coconut butter, cashew butter, hazelnut butter… you get the picture. But pb? Not a chance. It was only when I discovered a chocolate version and liked it, I started changing my mind… but it was the cake that did it. I’ve been craving  pb ever since and when I saw the above pot at the farm shop, I was so impressed at its ingredients list (peanuts) that I bought it – and LOVED it!

I don’t know if its natural-ness puts it a cut above the ones with oil, salt, god-knows-what added but this is the daddy-o. I’ve been scooping it on to just about everything.

I made chocolate cups, mixing it with mashed banana for the filling:

And this morning, pancakes with peanut butter and strawberry jam. Oh yes. Now I get what all the fuss is about :-)

And finally, these. I made Katie’s pb balls, made thumbprints and scooped in some jam  (I used St Dalfour, which only has strawberries, grape and lemon juice in it – amazing)

Wow – oat-y, peanut butter-y, jammy delicousness, woop!

Now I’ve just got to stop myself scoffing the rest of the pot down in one go (although there ain’t a huge amount left already!)

What’s the best thing you’ve ever made with nut butter…?

  1. Aww they look so yummy! But your chocolate banana cups sound even MORE amazing!! Holy yumminess!
    Happy Saturday, sweetie!

  2. They were (were being the word; they weren’t around for long!) but I don’t think you can ever argue with a nut butter/chocolate/banana combination! And the jam addition is delicious… :-)
    Thank you! Hope you’re having a brilliant weekend x
