Use Less Peanut Butter

A "serving size" of peanut butter is 2 tablespoons. I use 4 teaspoons instead. By cutting back a little bit, and using a no-salt or low-fat peanut butter then I am saving on calories while still getting my peanut butter fix.

    I agree i use 1 tbsp also and i love my peanut butter. - by PPHILLIPS9
  • I measure mine too! And I do the same thing as you...4 tsps...this way I save on the calories in the serving size. - by SBW1027
  • I agree 1T not quite enough, but 2T is too much. I usually do 1T and a little bit more. It's also nice to know other people are actually measuring peanut butter. Every time I measure it, I think I must be a little bit insane. Apparently not. - by GOROSIEO
  • Yeah, I always only use one tbsp; two is just way too much. - by DEANNROSP
