No Bake Peanut Butter Puffs Bars - Peanut butter, peanut butter candies, peanut butter cups, and peanut butter puff's cereal!

I hope that everyone had a great 4th of July weekend!  We were busy spending time with friends, going to a Colorado Rockies game, getting in a good hike, going on a bike ride, and getting to watch fireworks.  It was so much fun, but kind of exhausting at the same time!  I kind of need a nap just thinking of all that we accomplished in the last 3 days.  Or at least a good solid week of relaxation!  Or maybe just movie night, where I can doze off a little :)  Make sure you get to the bottom for a great giveaway that involves free movies!

Peanut Butter Brownies w/ Peanut Butter Cup Frosting

Peanut Butter Brownies w/ Peanut Butter Cup Frosting

Who watched the Wisconsin vs Kentucky basketball game on Saturday night?  Such a tough loss for the Badgers.  They played so well, and then lost by 1 point in the final seconds of the game.  Only the 3rd time in school history that they have made it this far,  so no matter what, it was a great season!  I just wish it could have ended differently.  My 8 year old had 2 more football games this weekend.  It was a tough 2 games as well!  The first game was a tie, and the 2nd game they lost by just 1 touchdown.  So much stress for a weekend!

After yesterday, between Facebook and the question I asked you here, you guys told me you wanted some Thanksgiving recipes.  Clearly, this isn’t one of them.  But now that I know, they will be coming.  I have 3 recipes I am making later this week to share with you.  One of them is a family favorite, and the others are new to me.  I am excited to mix things up a bit around here this year.  My family may be over Thanksgiving before the day even gets here :)

Peanut Butter Banana Bread

Peanut Butter Banana Bread 3

If your house is anything like mine, you are still knee deep in Halloween candy.  I let my son have one piece of candy in his lunch, and then if he is lucky he can have another piece after dinner.  Needless to say, it lasts a really long time around here.

This bread is perfect for those leftover Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.  If you haven’t stashed them away for yourself, that is.  Or maybe that is just me :)  The bread also uses up those browning bananas you have on the counter or stashed in your freezer.  See, I am here to help! And because it is me, and I don’t know when to stop I added a layer of Nutella on top.  Jean made this Nutella Banana Bread, and I just couldn’t get it out of my mind.

I am not usually a big fan of plain banana bread.  There is just too much banana flavor.  I realize that doesn’t make much sense.  I like bananas, but only every once in awhile.  So when I saw this recipe that added peanut butter to the batter I was exited to give it a try.  There is still a hint of banana in the background, but the peanut butter really shines through.  And then every once in awhile you get a bite with a peanut butter cup, and you are in heaven!

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Sandwich Cookies

Reese's Chocolate Chip Sandwich Cookies 2_

What is your favorite cookie?  I have a really hard time narrowing it down, it seems to change often.   In the end, I always fall back to the classic Chocolate Chip Cookie, but it has to be straight out of the oven. I have been making the same recipe since I was a little kid, so that might be part of it.

So last week I gave you Nutella Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies.  This week I am bringing you another crazy cookie.  This one is thanks to Shelly at Cookies and Cups.   I mean look at these things!  They are 2 chocolate chip cookies, with a peanut butter cup in the middle.  The peanut butter cup gets all melty, and sticks everything together.  Peanut Butter Cups are pretty much my favorite candy, so adding them to my favorite cookie makes for one insanely good treat!

I surprised my 7 year old with one of these in his lunch.  He came home so excited, and wanting more.  He was very upset to find out I only made a few of them.  But really, if I had more than 5 of these in the house it would not be pretty.  But I do have more cookie dough in the freezer, so I can make them fresh whenever the mood strikes.

Healthy Peanut Butter Cups
It is Secret Recipe Club Time!!  I had to take off last month because of moving but  am back at it again.  Before we get started I wanted to announce the winners from my International Delight Giveaway.

Winner 1 – Kesha
Winner 2 – Amy
Check your email ladies, so I can send you your prize.

For Secret Recipe Club this month I was assigned Quick and Easy, Cheap and Healthy.  This site is full of so many great and healthy recipes, as well as shopping deals, coupon links, menu planning, and much more.  She was actually assigned my blog one of the first months that I participated in SRC!  Check out her take on my Cinnamon Roll Muffins.  I had a couple recipes picked out including this Pizza, but as usual my sweet tooth won out.

The original recipe is made with Sunbutter, due to allergies.  Fortunately, we do not have allergies here, so I just used peanut butter.  These are a fun treat to have in the fridge or freezer.  They melt quickly, so I kept them in the fridge.  I currently have a few in the freezer to pull out in a chocolate emergency :)

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookies

reese's cookies 4 thumb

The other day I realized my stash of cookies in the freezer was gone!  I needed to make something to put in my son’s lunch.  He loves peanut butter and chocolate as much as I do, so I found this recipe to try.

These are incredible.  Seriously, probably the best cookies I have made in a long time.  As usual, I under baked them slightly, and they are so gooey, and soft, and chewy, and yummy!  The base would make a great peanut butter cookie.  The chocolate chips and the peanut butter cups are just an added bonus!

They even freeze well!  I took one out the other day for a “snack” and it was still soft and delicious.  You can’t always say that about frozen cookies.  The original recipe said it made 18 large cookies.  It made probably 4 dozen regular sized cookies for me.  It makes a ton!  But really?  I want to see those 18 cookies, they must be the size of my head!  MMMmmmmm….peanut butter cookies the size of my head!  Why did I make them small again?  Oh yeah, my son’s lunch box isn’t that big.
