“PB & J” Inspired Snack!!! Peanut Butter Stuffed Raspberries !!
Happy Monday everyone! I wanted to share a new snack that was inspired by my love for the old school PB&J sandwich! As a child I LOVED peanut butter and jelly sandwiches on white bread and ate them all the time. As I got older, I could no longer enjoy that treat as it was not the best sandwich to eat while watching my weight. I do still enjoy healthy, all natural, organic peanut butter on a spoon right out of the jar (guilty) or on a banana as a snack. However, I was missing that sweet berry partner that made a peanut butter and jelly sandwich so addicting! So, I bought some fresh raspberries and was eating them in my kitchen, when I eyed the jar of peanut butter across the counter – yes I keep it out for easy access :) Then suddenly the light bulb went off and I thought what if I stuff the peanut butter inside the raspberries and eat them together…. Genius!!!
So let me warn you a raspberry is not the easiest thing to fill (thank goodness I have small hands) but it’s worth it – trust me. What I did was cut a tiny piece off the bottom of the raspberry so it would sit straight on the plate, then took the bottom end of a teaspoon and scooped out the peanut butter and gently filled each one and that was it. They look so pretty you could entertain with them, they taste amazing and my 11 year old daughter loved them and left me very few :(
I hope this becomes a favorite: after-dinner / after-school / after-sports / after-dark :) delicious and healthy treat for you and your family!!!
