When I was a kid, one of my favorite snacks was fruit. But, then I started making nut butter and it all turned around. Yep, you better believe it. I started making crispy rice treats and snazzing them up with all kinds of goodies: dark chocolate, sea salt, and of course, any of your favorite JUSTIN’S® Nut Butters. Feel like a kid again with my nut butter rice crispy treats with dark chocolate & sea salt.

I also use almond meal instead of bread crumbs and I promise you, the taste isn’t compromised. My family loves this recipe for dinner, and I think yours will too!

 

Almond Butter Tahini Chocolate Chip Cookie bitten into, and placed on a black marble tabletop

What would happen if chocolate chip cookies grew up? Maybe got a job at a cool bookstore somewhere? Honestly, it would be a little weird. Chocolate chip cookies are food, not people. And these Almond Butter Tahini Chocolate Chip Cookies are the absolute best version of the classic cookie you’ll ever taste. They’re just as sweet and indulgent as your Grandma’s recipe, but with a little something extra that will have everyone asking for your secret ingredient.

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!
