The history of peanut butter dates back all the way back to the 1890′s when a St. Louis physician reportedly convinced a food products company to process and package ground peanuts as a protein source for his patients who had bad teeth and could not chew meat.
Since those days, peanut butter has become as American as, well, Peanut Butter & Jelly! Whether creamy or crunchy, honey roasted or original, everyone seems to have their favorite peanut butter variation, and don’t even get us started about peanut butter sandwich variations! From the classic PB & J to the “Elvis” (peanut butter, banana, & bacon), we have seen and heard it all!
Those who avoid peanuts don’t have to miss out on the nutty fun! Peanut-free alternatives include Almond Butter, Hazelnut Butter, Soy Nut Butter, even Sunflower Seed Butter!
What is your favorite Peanut Butter Sandwich combination? Are you a classic or are you “pea-nutty”?
Now, pour yourself a tall glass of milk and enjoy a thick, creamy, stick-to-the-roof-of-your-mouth peanut butter sandwich with a freshly baked Oats Bakery Peanut Butter Cookie for dessert!
