I know, I know, this is WAY too long of title….BUT seriously, I couldn’t leave any flavor out, every flavor was that wonderful in this recipe. There is some serious apple love happening here too!!!
A few weeks ago I was sent a couple samples of Planters NUTrition Peanut Butter mixed with wholesome ingredients. The two flavors I received are cinnamon raisin peanut butter, and berry nut peanut butter, the other flavor that is available is banana granola nut. The NUTrition Energy-Mix Peanut Butter contains 6 grams of protein per serving, and vitamins & minerals.
Trying to decide what to make with each nut butter was the tricky part. I wanted to make a treat that would also be a fun traveling snack. Bran muffins are my favorite. I don’t know what it is about them, but I just love everything about a bran muffin. So incorporating peanut butter seemed like a perfect addition to a delicious bran muffin. AND a perfect snack that would provide protein, fat, and carbohydrates.
When my hubby took a big spoonful of the cinnamon raisin NUTrition energy-mix peanut butter….he was instantly in love! He may say, “In love” is a bit much. BUT if your were there when he was enjoying his delicious spoonful….wellllll, trust me….he was sooooo “In Love!”
