Do you like peanuts and peanut butter?

Peanut butter has my heart. Almond butter is a bit too thin and doesn’t pack enough flavor punch compared to peanut butter.

Sunflower seed butter, Cookie Butter Spread or Biscoff, and Nutella are all great, but peanut butter trumps them all for me.

Ironically, I don’t like whole peanuts, or nuts of any kind, in desserts in their whole form. Ground up into peanut butter is a different story and I always bake with smooth rather than crunchy peanut butter.
