I’m glad I planned ahead and took these pictures yesterday when it was nice out and I had time! Today has been very long and the skies have turned grey again…but tomorrow I don’t have class so I’m really looking forward to getting some sleep and doing some cooking. I have been experimenting further with peanut butter and decided it was time to try a flavored version! The result is SO TASTY and still healthy to boot! I also discovered that processing the peanut butter a few minutes longer makes it soooo super smooth and keeps it soft longer (even after refrigeration). I just enjoyed some of this on a banana, it was AWESOME.
The flavor of the cinnamon is really subtle, but then the taste catches up with you a few seconds after you take a bite. YUM!

In the words of Ina, “How easy is that?!”
I have some serious plans for this peanut butter, none of which involve it sticking around longer than this week. 😉
Thanks for reading!
