I’m a sucker for a great doughnut, but sometimes I want to eat a whole dozen of them. My doctor tells me that eating that much fried dough isn’t good for me, but I’ve found a loophole. My Baked Cinnamon Almond Butter “Churro” Doughnuts are baked not fried. You still probably shouldn’t eat a dozen of them by yourself though.

Great Summer Recipes
Peanut Butter Cup Oatmeal Skillet Cookie on cloth with oatmeal flakes in a bowl and scattered on a gray wooden background

You can make lots of things in a skillet, one of my personal favorites is making my Peanut Butter Cup Oatmeal Skillet Cookie recipe. It’s better than your average cookie because I’ve added JUSTIN’S® Classic Peanut Butter and JUSTIN’S® Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups to the dough. This cookie comes out of the oven crispy at the top, gooey in the middle.

There’s nothing I love more than the combination of dark chocolate, peanut butter, and creamy cheesecake. I made it my mission to create a dairy-free version of my favorite dessert to make sure that everyone can enjoy a chocolaty, peanut-buttery slice of cheesecake. It took some time – and roughly 1,000 dirty dishes – but I succeeded! Now I’m happy to share my recipe for Peanut Butter Chocolate Cashew Cheesecake with you.

Coconut Almond Butter Overnight Oats in a clear cup with a bamboo straw, and wooden baking utensils in the white background

I love spicing up a classic recipe. What do you do when life gives you JUSTIN’S® Coconut Almond Butter, oats, blueberries, and a free night? Make Coconut Almond Butter Overnight Oats of course! This recipe cuts out all the artificial ingredients included in a sugary instant packet. No need to thank me, I do it for the fans!

 

Peanut Butter Banana S'mores Bars stacked on top of each other with chocolate chips on a white top with a blue background

You didn’t think I’d give you a s’mores recipe without putting my own spin on it did you? This is a classic with a sweet twist. This recipe uses JUSTIN’S® Mini Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups in place of the milk-chocolate bar, and real cookie dough instead of crackers. How delicious does that sound? I should warn you though, these can get messy and are addicting. But mostly just addicting.
