Excuse the delay but moving across country is exhausting. Thankfully, all my peanut butter arrived intact. As for the exhibition, we only had 11 entries this time, but while the quantity was lacking the quality did not. Myself and the other judges: Beth, E and Mara put on our virtual tongues and picked our favorite recipes. While the real prizes here are the glorious peanut butter recipes, the first place winner has been contacted and will receive a prize package from Stonyfield Farms! Read on for a summer’s supply of mouth-watering recipes.

Congratulations to the winners! We loved them all but we had to decide on the winners. It’s always a tough decision but here are the undisputed masters:

1st Place: Peanut Butter Blondies by Tina at Carrots ‘n’ Cake was the overall favorite. Tina’s array of healthy ingredients really come together in this delicious looking recipe, one that has risen to the top of my to-make list. Congrats Tina, this dish is well-deserving of the first place prize!

2nd Place: Prawns A La Talla with Peanut Butter Sauce by Marta from Just Call Me Marta was an excellent appetizer for our barbecue. Those prawns look crispy and spicy and the creamy peanut butter sauce can only be the perfect complement!

3rd Place: Asian Peanut Butter Pesto Grilled Chicken from Lynnylu at Cafe Lynnylu is the perfect light main course. Everyone loves kabobs and this recipe looked too good to pass up.

1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cup oats
1/3 cup peanut butter chips
1/3 cup shredded coconut, sweetened
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. In a big bowl, cream butter, peanut butter, and both sugars. Beat in the egg and vanilla. In a separate bowl, sift flour, baking soda, and cinnamon. Mix in the peanut butter chips and coconut. Pour and stir the dry into the wet mixture. Add in the oats and mix until evenly incorporated. Form 1-inch balls by rolling the dough in your hands and press gently onto a lined baking sheet lined. Bake for 8-10 minutes and let sit outside of oven for another 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool.

Pork’n Butter Kabobs by Brooke

Kabob Materials
6 Granny Smith apples; each apple cut into 6 wedges
18 Thick-cut Bacon strips cut in halves
1 Pineapple cored; cut into 1 inch cubes

Peanut Butter Glaze
¾ cp. Chicken or beef broth
¾ cp. Trader Joe’s Organic Creamy Peanut Butter
¼ cp. Honey
½ tbsp. Soy sauce
1 tsp. black pepper
¼ tsp. Hot sauce

1. Coat grill rack with cooking spray; Heat grill.
2. Wrap each apple wedge with a half strip of bacon.
3. Alternate, starting with pineapple cube, apple/bacon wedges and pineapple cubes on skewers. Resulting in 9 skewers with 5 pineapple cubes and 4 apple/bacon wedges to each skewer.
4. Combine Peanut Butter Glaze ingredients in a small bowl and whisk together until well incorporated. Use this glaze on any meat while it is roasting.
5. Brush kabobs with glaze mixture, reserving any remaining mixture.
6. Place kabobs on rack over medium heat and cook 3 minutes on each side (be sure to re-brush with glaze after flipping) or until bacon is cooked to your liking (some foodies enjoy crispy bacon while others enjoy medium rare).
7. Remove from grill and drizzle with remaining glaze if desired.

  4. Marta says:

    Thanks so much for choosing my recipe for 2nd place!!!!! It was so much fun coming up with this recipe!!! I really enjoy these challenges, it’s nice to up the ante on creativity and think outside the PB jar :) This contest in particular I found quite challenging, I thought about it for days because PB and BBQ don’t seem like that obvious a combination, maybe that’s why only 11 people entered… it was hard!
    It looks like a really nice list of entries, though, all delicious! You guys must have had a hard time!
    Thank you for hosting the contest!!!

  5. I’m dying over those prawns and peanut butter sauce. Brilliant combo!

  6. maria says:

    Great PB recipes! Can’t wait to try them!

  7. Tina says:

    Wahoo! Definitely give my PB Blondies a try! So good!

  8. Nora says:

    These all look yummy!!! I would have entered but this was a tricky one! I want to try the PB blondies. I am not finding fault, but I how are PB blondies considered BBQ?

    • Nick says:

      Ah, well the theme was BBQ but in the description I geared it more towards “what would you bring to a barbecue?” so it was more of an outdoor potluck sorta thing. So it could be anything from a family-style dessert or side salad to a peanut butter grilling sauce!

  9. Lynne says:
