Peanut Butter Trick

This Sparked Me!

Love peanut butter? Then you'll know how a serving as a snack/dip doesn't seem like much. I found that if I microwave 1 Tbsp of natural peanut butter for 30 seconds, the warmth thins out the consistency and makes it seem more like 2 Tbsp, but with half the fat and cals. It lasts much longer for dipping with apples, celery, pears, bananas... sometimes I even toss in 1 tsp of mini chocolate chips for an extra special treat!

    I used better N peanut butter which is 50 calories a TBSP and mix in unsweetened cocoa powder after i microwave it 12 seconds. Its really good hot fudge tasting sauce.

    I discovered that by leaving a jar of it in the car on a hot day. I think it tastes better that way.. yum
