Whole Earth has asked us to find out Mumsnetters' favourite peanut butter related snacks.

Here's what Whole Earth has to say, "Mums buy Whole Earth peanut butter because they know it's naturally delicious. Made with 97% peanuts, no added sugar and loaded with energy Mums know that choosing Whole Earth peanut butter is a great way to fuel their families throughout the day. It is also a perfect ingredient for baking crunchy peanut butter cookies - a delicious after school treat."

Do you use peanut butter to create homemade snacks for you or your DCs? What about peanut butter popcorn or peanut butter granola bars? Or perhaps you just use it to dip celery or carrot sticks into? However you snack with peanut butter we'd love to know.

Everyone who adds their feedback or uploads a photo of their snack will be entered into a prize draw to win a £150 voucher for a supermarket of their choice.

Many thanks and good luck,

MNHQ

Peanut butter on celery. Sounds strange but I really love it!!

Peanut butter spread very thick on white toast. Immense. Or straight from the jar I have been known....

Halfbaked Mon 30-Sep-13 18:38:04

Peanut butter on toast with sliced banana mmmm or peanut butter spread on apple slices for a healthy energy boost.
Peanut butter and Nutella on thick white toast for a treat.
Peanut butter cookies, my mums recipe which you leave in sausage shapes in the freezer for slicing and baking in 12 mins, home baked peanutty biscuits- must be eaten warm.
Or just straight from the jar, I love peanut butter

I have to admit, I'm a huge fan of just alternating spoons of crunchy Whole Earth peanut butter with squares of 75% cocoa chocolate.

You can;t eat much before you're satisfied, but it's sooo yummy.

Otherwise I stick it in a blender with honey, milk and some oats and make a delish smoothie.

One needs to bake peanut butter cookies - then in a stroke of sheer utter genius, one stacks the cookies atop of each other using peanut butter.

there are various ways of eating them
1) the see wh can get the most in their gob technique

2) the take one off at a time technique ( although this invariably leaves one with a dilema of is there enough PB on the cookie below - it is truly terrifying)

3) the biscuit sandwich technique - and my clear favourite

Peanut butter on cinnamon and raisin bagels is the best.

Peanut butter on toasted crumpets or toasted muffins is pretty good too.

My daughter likes it on crusty bread.

PigStack Mon 30-Sep-13 18:53:31

Peanut butter on brown bread with blueberry jam
Peanut butter and raisin cookies.
Peanut butter added to seeds and oat flapjacks and topped with chocolate
Peanutbutter filled chocolate cups: the BEST idea ever.

Peanut butter cookies - cup of PB, cup of sugar, an egg, tsp of vanilla. Mix. break into walnut size balls, squish with fork, bake for 10 mins at 160'c.

Gluten and dairy free, and tbh, they work just as well with no egg

Homemade satay sauce is a favourite here - mix with coconut milk, soy sauce and a bit of chilli - delish! Either have hot with chicken or cold with crudités.

CMOT just beat me to it, pb cookies are my favourite.

bundaberg Mon 30-Sep-13 19:14:18

My kids fave thing ever:

cut an apple in half and cut the core out.
drop a bit of honey or jam in the dip.
fill with about a tablespoon of crunchy peanut butter (and yes, we do use whole earth!)

yum yum yum!

also good on toast topped with sliced banana

Peanut butter sandwiched in between Ritz biscuits is yum grin

We add a large spoonful to scone mix,when adding the egg and milk. Makes very more-ish scones.

for a good hit of protein I like some crunchy peanut butter on seedy wholewheat pita

Put a big dollop of PB on top of vanilla icecream and top with salted peanuts. Heaven.

Or spread PB on part cooked wholemeal toast, top with grated cheese and toast again. I lived on this as a student and it is sooooo good.

Rubberstamp Tue 01-Oct-13 17:47:10

Favourite sandwich ever - or on an open baguette. Peanut Butter, Sliced Apple and Mature Cheddar. Heaven on a plate.

sharond101 Tue 01-Oct-13 21:22:39

Peanut butter on ryvita sesame crackers..... a duo made in heaven.

oversomeniagara Tue 01-Oct-13 21:27:58

crunchy peanut butter, fresh coriander, pickled jalapeños and grated carrot on toasted bread.

Or

Peanut butter & cornichons in a sandwich.

I love peanut butter. It kept me alive throughout primary school,when I refused to eat any other kind if sandwich...

GetKnitted Tue 01-Oct-13 23:25:31

peanut butter and banana toasted sandwiches, amazing!

ouryve Wed 02-Oct-13 09:43:40

I'm sure dads buy peanut butter, too hmm

Anyhow, nothing beats PB blathered on wholemeal toast, so it's slightly melted, but I'm also partial to it in a sandwich, with loads of crunchy cucumber and lettuce, or grated carrot.

Anjou Wed 02-Oct-13 09:55:43

Mmmmmmmm, peanut butter.

PB, coconut milk, red chillies, sesame oil, fish sauce, coriander & star anise. Thin it with hot water if you want to make a soup with all your usual veg/meat etc that you'd use in a Thai/Malay curry, or keep it sticky and add fried pork & serve with coconut, jasmine or sticky rice.

PB, sliced banana & honey on whole meal toast.

PB, oats, sultanas, little bit of banana, honey, golden syrup - mix up & pack in the usual way for AMAZING flapjacks.

Mmmmmmmm, peanut butter.

peanut butter on McVities Digestive biscuits -fabulous

BornToFolk Wed 02-Oct-13 10:18:41

I love peanut butter. Halfbaked beat me to it but peanut butter on toast with sliced banana or peanut butter with apple slices are my two favourite ways to eat it. Or with jam in a sarnie.

I love the look of the new sachets, they'd be great for having in my bag as an emergency snack, or for packed lunches.

Please do stop with the "Mums know..." etc though. Would it be so very hard to say "Parents know..." instead?

Spirael Wed 02-Oct-13 10:33:34

Another vote for peanut butter and nutella sandwiches here! Though I do like peanut butter on a toasted bagel as well.

DH (Dads do the food shopping and cooking as well-!!) makes a fantastic satay sauce using peanut butter that we have with prawns, salad and pitta breads. Yum!
