TURTLE BUTTER ROUNDS

When this Turtle Butter Round hits your mouth, you are going to be in  sweet, salty, crunchy, chewy I can’t eat just one HEAVEN!   I ate four of these in the blink of an eye…and I wanted MORE!   The flavors are so perfect together and they were so easy to make…I’m in real trouble with these. 
You start out by making a mixture of melted butter, vanilla and pecans to spoon on top of the crackers.  Bake the crackers for 6 minutes, take them out , add toppings, bake again about 4 minutes and they’re done.  How’s that for easy!  You know what’s nice about the recipe, you could use whatever you have in your cupboard, I had left over caramels and chocolate chips.  That’s what I used.  
 These would be great to take to the office for your holiday party or a pot luck.  I can see them as homemade Christmas gifts as well.  Turtle Butter Rounds, make a bunch, spread the love and ENJOY!!
INGREDIENTS 1 cup butter 1/2 cup sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 cup chopped pecans 2 sleeves buttery crackers 1/2 cu…

ENERGY BITES

Full of many healthy goodies, peanut butter energy balls are exactly what you want to be snacking on! 
Introducing – The easiest snack you’ll ever make!  Made with all healthy ingredients and refined- sugar free.  These energy balls will satisfy all your late afternoon cravings.
This same recipe exists already on the blog, deep down in the archives.  Actually one of the first things I ever shared here on The Well Floured Kitchen.  I had made square energy balls, which is still an option.  Yet, most people are looking for round energy balls, so I thought it might be time for an update.
I did change one thing about them.  The amount of honey has been reduced to 1/3 a cup.  I was so happy to find that they are still sweet enough to appease my nagging sweet tooth.  Also, did I mention the hint of chocolate?  I used a couple tablespoons of my Navitas cacao powder – my favorite and I highly recommend it.  But these can definitely be made with any cocoa powder you have available.
They are so sim…

CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER SWIRL COOKIES

Half chocolate dough and half peanut butter dough makes double the goodness! These swirled cookies are rich, fudgy and delicious!
I say often on the blog, weigh your ingredients – it is so important for good baking.  It’s something I do for every single thing I bake.   My scale was lovingly overworked, but alas one day it stopped altogether.  I have a feeling it was mad about something, since on its way out it whispered to the other appliances… psst all of you – come with me!
So my food processor promptly followed suit.  I’ve been using the same one for 16 years, but sadly the company no long sells all the parts to it.   So there has been lots of flipping through amazon reviews, trying to cobble together new and old pieces that will work in harmony.
whatever… I can live without them temporarily.
But lastly, the one I can barely say without tears, my #1 kitchen tool.  My Viking professional mixer.  That big, oversized, takes-up-too-much-counter-space, lovable monster.  10 quarts and 1,000 …

WHOLE GRAIN CHOCOLATE CUPCAKES WITH DARK CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER FROSTING

Moist chocolate cupcakes frosted with chocolate peanut butter icing.  Perfect for any celebration!
Chocolate cupcakes made with whole grains?  Yes, it is possible!  Made with barley flour, these moist cupcakes will surprise you.  Barley flour is lower in gluten, and works really well for baking.  But if you don’t have any barley flour, these will still taste great with cake flour or even all purpose.
I’ve been on a bit of a chocolate and peanut butter kick lately.  I’ve shared with you these peanut butter cheesecake truffles, and before that there was this Brownie Layer Cake with Peanut Butter Fudge Frosting.  We even recently cooked up a batch of last summer’s favorite Chocolate Peanut Butter Hot Fudge Sauce.  So I thought to myself, is that too much for one blog?  But then I came to my senses and realized there can never be too much chocolate and peanut butter!
Since barley flour is lower in protein and gluten than traditional white flour, it is usually recommended to be used in part w…

PEANUT BUTTER OATMEAL COOKIE SMOOTHIES

Finally, a smoothie I can embrace.  Although I make smoothies all the time, I never drank one until now.  Much to my dismay, I do not love fruit.  Why oh why do all smoothies have fruit?  I do tolerate a certain amount for my health, but it is not my favorite.  (BTW, this has been very helpful in growing adventurous eaters.  If they see you continuing to try a food you are not crazy about, they will be encouraged to do the same.)
But now that I’ve found a new way to enjoy a smoothie without fruit, I am excited by the possibilities.  I am on a mission for “fruitless” smoothies, or maybe just ones so tasty I don’t notice a bit of fruit. Check out that straw!  Do your kids love to drink from a straw?  Mine do, but I hated throwing away all those bits of plastic.  Stainless Steel Straws have been a great eco-friendly alternative.
This smoothie tastes just like a cookie, but it is naturally sweetened with just a bit of honey.  Yum!  The sweetness will depend on your brands of peanut butter an…

PEANUT BUTTER CHEESECAKE BITES

Peanut Butter Cheesecake Bites – You can’t eat just one!
Peanut Butter.  Cheesecake.  Little bites of goodness to pop in your mouth.  Disguised as a traditional chocolate truffle, what a surprise to get a mouthful of smooth, creamy cheesecake.
These guys are so much easier than a full out cheesecake.  No worries about cracks or water baths, no need to even turn the oven on.  Yet all the yummy flavor of a traditional cheesecake.
Chocolate and peanut butter are definitely best friends, so they were an obvious choice.  Although the truffles are pure peanut butter cheesecake, I rolled them in a sweet coating of cocoa.  I made a second batch that had mini chocolate chips in the cheesecake.   The mini chips made them a bit harder to roll, but the taste was worth it!
If there is any concern about the messiness of rolling these guys in dark cocoa, plain confectioners sugar would be a great substitute.  I don’t know about you, but I always walk away with a bit of chocolate on my shirt.
I tried thes…

CHOCOLATE DIPPED COCONUT PEANUT BUTTER POPSICLES

And another one! I hope you guys aren’t getting bored of my popsicle recipes? Okay, I promise this is the last one, for a while! And I saved the best for the last, YES! Maybe I am biased because there’s Peanut Butter involved but guys these peanut butter popsicles are so good! I was actually playing around with flavors and I had no idea that it would turn out so good. Coconut + Mighty Maple Peanut Butter + Chocolate = Best treat ever!
You know my obsession with peanut butter, I can never have enough of it. Whether it’s adding it to my homemade granola or homemade ice cream, I am always looking for ways to include peanut butter in my recipes. I have even made burgers and parathas out of it! Well yes I told you, I am obsessed with the stuff. And today I added it to these popsicles and it can’t get better than this.
10 minutes is all that it takes to make these popsicles. I could have left them as such (because they were pretty good that way too) BUT I had to dip them in chocolate. Peanut …
