Finds’ Fave PB & Co The Bee’s Knees Review + Giveaway!

beeskneesIf you read this blog, you know I LOVE peanut butter (especially from Finds’ Fave Peanut Butter & Co) and that I am NOT a food blogger. That said, I was beyond delighted when Adam from PB & Co got in touch to invite me to be a part of their Yum Squad – a new ambassador group. Do I want to get access to new goodies and giveaways from one of my favorite companies? Hell, yes! It is good for me and it is good for you all, too! I get to test and giveaway delicious goodies from PB & Co all year long. Yay! My first giveaway assignment was Dark Chocolate Dreams and the 31 Days of Dark Chocolate Dreams Cookbook. The second is to create some “Peanut Butter Buzz” with Bee’s Knees. We were asked to develop or test some recipes with The Bee’s Knees, PB & Co’s peanut butter blended with “scrumptious” honey.

Like me, many of my friends and readers love PB & Co peanut butter. For this Yum Squad assignment, I enlisted Kim and Stacy. Kim decided to make a main course with her Bee’s Knees and Stacy made some cookies and no bake bars (which I will be making!)

This recipe is easy and delicious! And who doesn’t love stuffed potatoes? This version is a super healthy, nutritious version of an old favorite. Kudos and thanks to Kim!

Cookies and Bars from Stacy! YUM!

Cookies and Bars from Stacy! YUM!

Stacy said, “I ended up taking a very, very basic approach.” She went on to say, “I found two recipes that I modified slightly.The cookie is just the PB, honey and agave, vanilla, oat flour, baking soda and desiccated coconut. Taste pretty good, too!” and  “The bar is no bake. Peanut Butter, honey (I used less since the PB has honey, too) and oats. Press and set. Bam.” Here are the original recipes that Stacy adapted for the No Bake Bar and cookie. She dropped some off and the husband and I loved them. Well, he loved the cookies. I ate up all of the bars before he could get any! I love these basics and even I can make them!

    I would make peanut butter cups.

    I just mix a little nutritional yeast with peanut butter and melt some chocolate (baking choc/coconut oil) and pour into molds; add some peanut butter and then pour more chocolate on top. Put in freezer or fridge. Sorry if that description isn’t clear! I don’t use a recipe, but there are plenty online.

    When the jar is pretty low, I like to stir in some cocoa powder, shredded coconut, and some chia seeds. Just eat with a spoon. 🙂

  38. I’m pretty much a PB addict, but I’ve never tried this kind before!
