This is usually where I’d make a clever joke about rabbits, but when it comes to my Cinnamon Almond Carrot Cake Muffins, I don’t mess around. Trust me, the joke I had was good. Real good. Make sure you hurry to the grocery store and get everything you need—don’t forget JUSTIN’S® Cinnamon Almond Butter. Okay, I didn’t really have a joke. I couldn’t think of anything.

Great Summer Recipes
Frozen Chocolate PB Banana Pops with chocolate drizzle, rainbow sprinkles, Justin's honey peanut butter jar and two bananas

Contrary to what you may be thinking the “PB” in this Frozen Chocolate PB Banana Pops recipe stands for “perfectly blended (flavors)”. Ok not really, but that doesn’t make it untrue. This recipe is tasty and a great way to stay cool on hot days. I make them with JUSTIN’S® Honey Peanut Butter, fresh bananas, and decorate them with sprinkles. It’s a great project that you can make and eat with the kids!

 

Crunchy Banana Roll on a white, rectangular plate with wooden chopsticks on top with a banana on the top right corner

Why shouldn’t snacktime be special? But also simple to prepare and wholesome, because special doesn’t have to mean over the top. This Crunchy Banana “Roll” is sure to prompt even the hangriest snacker to crack a smile. And then throw some elbows on their way to grabbing their share of the best afternoon snack ever.

Vanilla Almond Baked Doughnut Holes in a white bowl with coffee and Justin's peanut butter jar

Sweet, poppable doughnut holes are almost impossible to stop munching on. Well, munch away my friend. Vanilla Almond Baked Doughnut Holes are gluten free and baked instead of fried so you don’t have to feel bad if you munch one or two more than you were planning.

Peanut Butter Banana Pudding with whipped cream and peanut butter drizzle with cookies on a wooden top with white background

No, your mind is not playing tricks on you. You really are staring at a glass filled with layers of JUSTIN’S® Classic Peanut Butter, vanilla wafer cookies, bananas, and pudding, topped with coconut whipped cream. This recipe is so easy to make I can do it with my eyes closed. Except, I have to use a plate for every time I miss the glass. The good news is, it still takes me less than 10 minutes to make.
