Coffee Butter a worthwhile experiment

Here’s a quickie I found on the internet and had to try: Coffee Butter. Mix peanut butter and honey, which is already a winning combo, and add a tad of coffee grounds. If you eat it quickly, it’s kind of crunchy. If you wait, the grounds dissolve into a new flavor. I tried it on sliced apple and found it interesting enough to try again. Graham crackers seem another good option. If you don’t tell someone what’s in it, they’ll probably take a long time to guess.

When nuts meet cheese

I’m on board with Pepper-Jack Cheese, a new Blue Diamond Natural Almond Nut-Thins flavor labeled for “irresistible snacking” and smart eating.” The wheat- and gluten-free crackers are more healthy versions of what Americans love to munch. I wanted a second with the first was still in my mouth. Nut•Thins come in Almond, BBQ, Cheddar Cheese, Hazelnut, Pecan, Smokehouse, Hint of Sea Salt and Country Ranch. Look for them in the health section.

One more cereal choice

Post just came out with Honey Bunches of Oats new Fruit Blends cereal with two combos: Peach Raspberry and Blueberry Banana. I tried the second version by sprinkling it over yogurt and I’m thinking this is a tasty way to make a box last a good, long time. It’s in the middle of the sweeter stuff kids go for and the ultra grainy stuff health-conscience grownups choose.
