Tomorrow is January 24th, and I know you all know what that means. You’re wracking your brain aren’t you? We just had Martin Luther King Day, the inauguration is over, and Valentine’s Day isn’t for a couple more weeks. What holiday have you forgotten about? What Hallmark card are you missing? It’s National Peanut Butter Day of course!
I’m not a huge fan of the standard PBJ sandwich, but I LOVE peanut butter in desserts. Wait, LOVE might not be strong enough. What other synonyms can I find that might be better suited to describe my affection? I ADORE and LUST AFTER peanut butter decadence.
Jules inspired me to think about some of my favorite PB treats to find gluten-free recipes for them. I haven’t tried any of these, so I needed some criteria in order to filter through the mass of recipes I found.
My criteria required the recipes to be easy and already gluten-free. It also needed to have a 4-5 star rating or having several positive reviews, so I could determine if it was worth the time and money (and pounds gained) to make it.
Here are some of the most drool-worthy gluten-free peanut butter desserts I could find. Which one will you pick? Eenie, meenie, miney, mo…
- Friendly’s peanut butter sauce
- Creamy peanut butter fudge
- Flourless peanut butter and chocolate chip cookies
- Peanut butter pie
- Flourless crack brownies
- Peanut butter swirl ice cream
- And of course Jules’ peanut butter cookies
And I now need a napkin to clean up my drool.
So, I know you’ve been busting your butt at the gym, but don’t you owe it to yourself and the powers that be to honor this deliciously ridiculous holiday with true peanut butter indulgence?
