If you eat your peanut butter on something that you warm up first (ie. Toast, Eggos, etc.). Be sure to 1st measure out your serving. But put it on the toast or eggos right away. The peanut butter melts and goes further. Thus meaning you don't need as much to cover the toast or egoos.
I eat eggos or a slimbun (toasted) every morning with peanut butter and jelly for breakfast. I usually only use about 2 tsps on each half (around 126 calories in peanut butter). The total calorie count is around 350 for the egoos, and 280 for the slim bun and peanut butter and jelly.

I am a peanut butter lover could eat it all the time :) Well I recently found PB2 which is a pressed peanut butter. It basically removes all of the oil leaving you with a powdered peanut butter that you add to dishes or favorite drink!!! Way less calories and still get the peanut butter flavor :) Their website also has lots of great recipes. PB2 only has 45 calories so this cuts about 150 calories compared to regular peanut butter 224
If you or your children have nut allergies and cannot use peanut butter or other nut butters, give SunButter a try. Unlike Soy butter (yuck), it tastes just like peanut butter. It is made from sunflower seeds I use it in recipes that call for peanut butter, so that my allergic son can safely enjoy them. I also spread it on toast or enjoy it any other way you would normally enjoy peanut butter.
