Kind Healthy Peanut Butter Snacks Giveaway

In honor of National Peanut Butter Day that was on January 24, Kind Snacks wants to give away their most popular peanut butter goodies.

One lucky winner will win:

Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate + Protein (12 bars)

Peanut Butter & Strawberry (12 bars)

  Peanut Butter Whole Grain Clusters (2 pouches)

I’ve been a fan of Kind for years. Their snacks are healthy, tasty, and wholesome. Although I make many of my own snack bars, granola bars, and granola, it’s nice to have a storebought option that I can trust to deliver bars with quality ingredients with names I can pronounce.

I am a huge fan of chunky textures and one thing I love about Kind products is that I can really see what I’m eating. Big oaty clusters, chewy raisins and dried fruit, and peanut butter is always welcome.

I love peanut butter! Some posts about it include:

35 Favorite Peanut Butter Recipes (as of September 2012)

20 Peanut Butter Recipes

Peanut Butter and Jelly Recipes

master compilation of all Peanut Butter Recipes

Here are 15 Peanut Butter Favorites:

1. Homemade Peanut Butter (vegan if plain peanuts are used, GF) – Ready in 5 minutes and you have not lived until you’ve made your own

2. Homemade Cookie Butter Peanut Butter (vegan, GF) – So similar to Biscoff or Trader Joe’s Cookie Butter and it comes together in minutes in the food processor. Dangerously good

3. Special K Bars (no-bake) – The recipe is from my Grandma and one of my favorite bars of all time and ironically was the first picture Foodgawker ever accepted of mine. 250+ later, it’s fun to think back

4. Coconut Peanut Butter Magic Cake Bars – One of my favorite bar-desserts that I’ve ever posted (tied with the bars below it). If Seven Layer Bars (aka Magic Bars or Hello Dolly Bars) met a golden yellow butter cake rather than a graham cracker crust, that’s what these are like

5. White Chocolate Vanilla Marshmallow Cake Bars – One of my favorite desserts that I’ve ever posted (tied with the bars above) – There are four main layers to these bars. Gooey butter cake, peanut butter and sweetened condensed milk, white chocolate chips, more white chocolate. The pictures don’t do them justice

6. Peanut Butter & Jelly Blondies – So dense and rich they’re peanut butter fudge-like with jelly swirled throughout

7. Marshmallow Peanut Butter Double Chocolate Pillowtop Bars – One of my favorite desserts of 2011. Creamy, sweet, rich. A soft and sweet marshmallow-peanut butter top layer adorns a base of oats, sweetened condensed milk, and white chocolate. An all-time favorite

8. Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies – One of my favorite cookie recipes on my site. Chewy, filled with texture, and combines three of my favorite cookies in one – chocolate chip, oatmeal, and peanut butter – and very easy to make, no mixer required

9. Peanut Butter Oatmeal White Chocolate Chip Cookies – One of my all-time favorites, I love these cookies and they’re similar to the cookies above, but with white chocolate chips. I love them

10. Peanut Butter Cocoa Krispies Smores Bars – Thanks to Pinterest, one of the most popular recipes on my site. No need for campfires, make s’mores at home. These smores have three layers, including a cocoa-crispy cereal top layer that’s made with peanut butter

11. Caramel Peanut Butter & Jelly Bars (vegan, GF) – Crumble topping adorns layer of caramel, peanut butter, and sweet jelly in these easy, no-mixer required layered bars

12. Pumpkin Spice Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Granola (vegan, GF) – You’ll never want storebought granola after you get spoiled with the ease, flavor, and cost-savings of homemade

13. Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Granola Bars (No-Bake, Vegan, Gluten-Free, Soy-Free) – My favorite, easy, no-bake granola bar of all time. Like a Quaker Chewy Bar, but enhanced

14. Ritz Cracker Stuffed Peanut Butter Cups (no-bake, vegan – Ritz crackers are Accidentally Vegan) – You don’t need storebought after making your own in minutes. Customize them and stuff whatever strikes your fancy from marshmallows to caramel

Last but not least…

15. Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies (gluten-free) – No flour, no white sugar, and no butter is used in these ridiculously moist cookies that overflow with dark chocolate. Robustly peanut butter-flavored and the most amazing peanut butter cookies I’ve ever had and a new favorite. Stop what you’re doing and make these now (and make the chocolate chips ones below, too)

And there’s no peanut butter in them, but these are my favorite Chocolate Chip and Chunk Cookies

    I love PB! The best way is to take a small scoop of it and add a few chocolate chips in it…and eat it!

    I am a sucker for apple, banana, or celery with PB… and of course on soy ice cream or oatmeal or any dessert!

    I love the kind bars… still have to try the granola!

    I love Kind bars of any variety! My other favorite way to eat peanut butter is on top of vanilla ice cream, with chocolate sauce over both.

  9. chris — January 27, 2013 at 4:09 am (#

    My favorite way to eat peanut butter is a PB & J on toasted bread. Yum!!!! Peanut butter cups atop mint chocolate chip ice cream is quite decadent though :)

  10. Cate — January 27, 2013 at 4:24 am (#

    My grandmother makes these bars that she calls “Antarcticans”- basically a peanut butter and powdered sugar mixture with a layer of chocolate on top. So simple, yet so good!

  11. Tess — January 27, 2013 at 4:40 am (#

    I actually love the peanutbutter powder that is out. I can mix it with or without cocoa powder and make a fantastic sauce. Ofcourse this goes over EVERYTHING!

    I made myself a pb&j the other day after not having had one in forever and it was, in that moment, the best thing in the world. So it’s a rediscovered favorite.

  26. Eleanor — January 27, 2013 at 7:25 am (#

    my favorite way to eat peanut butter is the peanut butter cookies from the joy of cooking cookbook. plain, simple, classic.

    I am seriously obsessed with peanut butter!! I have it in some way every single day. Whether on waffles, toast, cookies, or straight up.. I can’t get enough of it. Lately I have been loving Nature’s Promise Organic PB, but any brand is pretty much fine by me :-)

  29. marti — January 27, 2013 at 8:25 am (#

    oh peanut butter. where to start? i especially have to have it at breakfast! i mix oats, tad of brown sugar, protein powder, flax seed, salt, cinnamon and vanilla. then i add peanut butter and mix until its a dough like mixture. top with a bit of banana and almond milk and boom. best breakfast EVER. (sounds weird i know, but seriously try it!)

  30. marti — January 27, 2013 at 8:26 am (#

    oh almost forgot! i also chop up a few dark chocolate chip and add to this mix.. its delicious!

  31. Laureen King — January 27, 2013 at 8:32 am (#

    My favourite way to eat peanut butter is by the spoonful. Sometimes a small spoonful of peanut butter takes away the afternoon cravings. I also use it to make my homemade protein bars.
    Thanks for your wonderful recipes Averie, I would love if you would follow me back on FB

  32. Shelly — January 27, 2013 at 8:38 am (#

    I’m a huge peanut butter fan! My favorite way is probably in cookies!

    I also can’t choose a favorite way to eat peanut butter! They are so, so many delightful ways to enjoy–off a spoon with a few chocolate chips, your chocolate chunk peanut butter cookies, homemade peanut butter cups, buckeyes……… :)

  38. Skylar S — January 27, 2013 at 9:28 am (#

    Chocolate and PB are, of course, amazing together! PB cups are my ultimate sinful dessert!!

  39. Stephanie — January 27, 2013 at 10:00 am (#

    Peanut Butter is my absolute favorite, add chocolate and you have a terrific duo. It actually helped build my body back up and full of protein when I was malnourished and got close to heart failure…a real lifesaver! While peanut butter is always a welcome addition to any recipe, my latest favorite is in gluten free peanut butter cookies!

    Adore your blog!

  49. Nicole — January 27, 2013 at 3:53 pm (#

    I love regular Kroger brand peanut butter (with the oil on top). I drain it off the top, stir, then put in the freezer. I do that so it’s super thick and so I eat it slower! Haha

    Kind Bars were Christmas stocking treats this season.
