This simple recipe will become a quick favorite for any peanut butter fans.It’s always fun for me to experiment with super unique and different recipes, but sometimes, I just want to make something homey, warm, and comforting. Cookies usually do that for me. The ritual of making cookies always reminds me why I love baking, and it’s even better when you can make the dough with the basics: a bowl and wooden spoon.

I’m constantly using my stand mixer and subsequently doing a whole bunch of dishes, but for this recipe, you can skip it. A little elbow grease is all you need! [Read more…]

If you had asked me on Saturday morning where I would be this week, I definitely wouldn’t have thought I’d be in Hawaii.

But, on Saturday morning, my sister texted me from the vacation house in Kauai she’d just arrived at with her boyfriend. They had two extra bedrooms, I had a voucher for a free flight, and a job that allows me to work from where ever I want. It was one of those times where it worked out too well for me to do anything but jump at the opportunity to escape the Seattle rain and soak in some sun rays in Hawaii. [Read more…]

If you love chocolate and peanut butter, these cookies will become a quick favorite.Hi, my name’s Rachel and I’m addicted to peanut butter. If you’ve been around my site before and have seen any of my many peanut butter recipes, you know that I can’t get enough of peanut butter. I especially love it when it’s paired with chocolate – white, dark, or milk. I don’t discriminate.

It’s not just peanut butter I love – it’s all nut butters. I love making them myself in my Vitamix (though it’s a long and loud process…) and I make new flavors all the time. Coconut butter is one of my favorites. Half coconut butter, half almond butter, with a bunch of spices and salt?? It’s so good. That almond coconut butter slathered on some thinly sliced apples is one of my favorite snacks. [Read more…]

As all the kiddos head back to class, and I’m in my apartment, not starting classes for the first time in 16 years, I had to make a treat to help me reminisce on the most iconic of school lunches of years past: PB&J! This nostalgic-inspired treat is one of my favorite twists on cinnamon rolls. Just let them rise overnight, pop them in the oven first thing in the morning, and you’ll have the scent of warm, gooey cinnamon rolls in place of an alarm clock.

Elvis Pancakes

These Elvis Pancakes are banana peanut butter pancakes stuffed with peanut butter and bacon. These are the ultimate breakfast treat – made with only 4 ingredients!

These Elvis Pancakes are banana peanut butter pancakes stuffed with peanut butter and bacon. These are the ultimate breakfast treat - made with only 4 ingredients!I’ve repeated over and over how much I love peanut butter and chocolate, but recently I’ve found a new, slightly more taboo love: peanut butter and bacon. Don’t knock it if you haven’t tried it! If you have indeed tried it, you’re probably singing the praises of this delicious combination right along with me – aren’t you?!

If you haven’t tried it, let me set the scene: when creamy, drippy peanut butter meets crunchy bacon, the salty, nutty smoothness of the peanut butter perfectly compliments the smoky bacon. They’re both strong tastes, but they work harmoniously to create a delicious burst of flavor in your mouth. It’s such a scrumptious combo, on toast or in a sandwich, or especially…in these pancakes.

I, like most people, thrive off inspiration. I look for it during the big events of my life, but also in the everyday happenings around me. I spend most of my days thinking about food and dreaming up new ways to craft ingredients together, and the inspired recipes are always the best ones. My inspiration is derived not just from the big things, like a road trip down the coast or an watching an inspirational speaker, but from the mundane: a trip to the grocery store, a conversation with the cashier at my favorite local coffee shop, the old-school packaging of my favorite childhood treats.

Peanut Butter & Jelly Crumb Bars (GF + Vegan)

These Peanut Butter & Jelly Crumb Bars have a layer of PB&J in the middle, surrounded by a crunchy oatmeal crust. The bars are gluten-free, vegan, and refined sugar-free.

These Peanut Butter & Jelly Crumb Bars have a layer of PB&J in the middle, surrounded by a crunchy oatmeal crust. The bars are gluten-free, vegan, and refined sugar-free.Let me start with this: these bars are one of my new favorites things. But…the first time I made these bars, I immediately knew I couldn’t post them. They were so hideous, and what was supposed to be a crumbly topping ended up completely melting into the peanut butter layer. I also burned them a little. They looked vaguely like the surface of the moon.

Once I tried them though, I went on a quest to perfect these bars. Despite being unattractive based solely on appearances, these bars were my dream as a peanut butter lover, even burned and ugly. There was no way I could salvage them enough to photograph them so they’d look good enough to post, so the recipe went back to the drawing board.

They were irresistible. Literally, because I ate 80% of the first pan with only a little bit of help from my roommate Ally. [Read more…]

This Peanut Butter Granola is the perfect breakfast treat. It tastes like dessert, and it's gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, refined sugar-free, and absolutely delicious!It’s no secret chocolate and peanut butter are my favorites. I drone on and on about it frequently enough, so I was surprised at myself that I hadn’t created a chocolate peanut butter granola recipe yet.

Don’t worry, all has been resolved and Bakerita now has a kick butt chocolate peanut butter granola recipe (if I may say so myself). Keeping in fashion with most the other granolas I have posted on Bakerita, this one is totally gluten-free, refined sugar-free, dairy-free, and vegan. It sure doesn’t taste like it though!
