Great Summer Recipes
Nut Butter Cup Dipped Pretzels on a black cooling tray on white parchment on a black tray on a white background

Pretzel rhymes with wrestle, as in, “I’ll wrestle you for one of these Nut Butter Cup Dipped Pretzels”. That’s what my daughter said to me last time I made a batch of these. I’ve combined the saltiness of pretzels with the sweetness of my famous nut butter cups and voila! I present to you one of the greatest snacks ever invented.

 

Easy No Bake Peanut Butter Granola Bars out of the tray with Justin's peanut butter jar on a white background side view

I love creating recipes that don’t require any heat because I can make my kids do it when I get lazy. This Easy No Bake Peanut Butter Granola was made with your kids in mind. I’ve included JUSTIN’S® Chocolate Hazelnut and Almond Butter and JUSTIN’S® Classic Peanut Butter for added sweetness. I’ve also added “easy” and “no bake” in the title so they don’t complain. You can even let them have a piece if you’re feeling extra generous.

 

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.

Spooky Peanut Butter Chocolate Bark cut into random pieces with googly eyes on some with flower paper and confetti decoration

Why wouldn’t the skeleton go trick or treating? It didn’t have the guts. You don’t have to be afraid of Spooky Peanut Butter Chocolate Bark. The only thing spooky about it is how fast your goblins and ghouls will gobble them up.

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.

Peanut Butter Cup S'mores Cookies placed on white paper with marshmellows in the background with green cloth

Campfire treats are great all year round! When you’re in the mood for something sweet, soft, and delicious, look no further than these Peanut Butter Cup S’mores Cookies. It’s a marshmallow on a JUSTIN’S® Classic Peanut Butter cookie, with a melted JUSTIN’S® Dark Chocolate Mini Peanut Butter Cup in the middle. All this s’mores talk got me in the mood for a campfire treat. Until next time!

 

Almond Butter Poppy Seed Muffins stacked on top with almond flakes on the white background

Is there anything more magical than warm muffins fresh from the oven? Mmm, I can almost smell them now. These are just like Mama Justin used to make with the added bonus of JUSTIN’S® Maple Almond Butter. My almond butter poppy seed muffins are sure to make you float in the air like those old-timey cartoons. Okay, maybe not. But, they are super good.
