What to do with this sad, almost empty jar of Mighty Maple peanut butter?
Put steel cut oats in it! And stir in a little extra PB and loads of Ricemallow Cream for the bestest Fluffer Nutter oats in a jar!
The whole oats-in-a-jar concept has been floating around the vegan blogosphere for ages, but I think I first caught on after seeing this post on Nora's Pride & Vegudice blog. A quick Google search pulls up a butt-load of posts from a host of awesome bloggers on enjoying oats in a nearly-empty nut butter jar.
In case you've missed all those, it goes like this — When you reach the last smidgeon of peanut butter in your jar (say a couple of tablespoons), leave 'em. And don't toss the jar. Cook you up some oats (I like steel cut the best, but I'll eat whatever's around). Pour the hot oats in your jar, and top with another dab of peanut butter (from a new jar) if you want. Then stir in any extras, like jam, bananas, maple syrup, or my fave Ricemallow Cream.
The magic happens when your spoon scrapes those last little bits of melty peanut butter from the sides of the jar as you scoop up bites of hot oats. I wish I had an almost-empty peanut butter jar everyday....sigh. I should start eating way more peanut butter.
