Fill Your Easter Basket with Gourmet Peanut Butter from B.Nutty

I found an amazing peanut butter brand recently, B.Nutty, that was started by two soccer moms. These mompreneurs were simply creating batches of peanut butter for fundraisers when they realized there was a demand for their gourmet peanut butter all year long!

Peanut butter lovers rejoice! Do you have that friend or family member who puts peanut butter on everything, and I mean everything? Tantalize their taste buds with Blissful Blueberry with Honey Roasted Peanuts and Blueberries and Milk Chocolate or Totally Toffee with Honey Roasted Peanuts and Toffee, Milk Chocolate and Almonds.

They have grab-and-go sizes that are perfect for Easter basket fillers to gift to your kiddo or keep for yourself 😉 We won’t tell! From packing up a picnic or storing in your work lunch, there’s too many occasions and no excuses to not have these 2 ounce containers on-hand. 

B.Nutty peanut butters are gluten-free and have zero trans fat. 

An Easter Recipe!

Peanut Butter Cookies

  1. 1 cup (1/2 lb) unsalted Butter
  2. 1 cup granulated sugar
  3. 1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  4. 3/4 cup bnutty peaceful plain peanut butter
  5. 2 large eggs
  6. 1 teaspoon vanilla
  7. 2 cups all-purpose flour
  8. 2 teaspoons baking powder
  9. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  10. 2 cups chocolate cups
  11. 1 1/2 cups oats

  2. In another bowl mix flour, baking powder, and salt. Add this mixture to the butter mixture and beat until well mixed. Stir the chocolate chips and oats into this combined mixture.
  3.  Drop the dough in rounded 2-tablespoon portions, 3 inches apart, onto parchment lined baking sheets. With a lightly floured fork flatten until about 1/2 inch thick and make criss-cross pattern on top of a cookie.
  4.  Bake in oven 12-14 minutes until cookies are golden brown. They may feel undercooked at first but will firm up and continue to cook as the cool.
  5. Let stand 5 minutes on the sheets. With a wide spatula transfer cookies to racks to cool.

This Plastic Baggy Holder Helps Keep The Leftovers And Groceries

It’s incredibly frustrating, upon moving a few items around in the fridge, to find a plastic bag full of something you planned on eating—but then completely forgot about. Food we save in plastic bags often goes bad before we get a chance to eat it, because the bags are so easily shifted and shoved around in the fridge or pantry.

And we probably have all bought a bag of something (shredded cheese for example) only to realize when we get home from the store that we already have the item. It was just too buried in a drawer or far back on a shelf for us to have known. 

Zip N Store is a storage company that makes a plastic baggy organizer which can be installed in refrigerators, pantries, closets, and more, according to the website. Zip N Store’s organizers allow you to easily see and access your plastic bags, which may save you the frustration (and cost) of either wasting food that you don’t remember storing, or buying a replacement for food you already have.

According to the product description on Amazon, the mid-size organizer holds 12 assorted quart-size plastic bags, and up to 20 pounds. Installation is easy, too. You simply attach the organizer to the bottom of the refrigerator shelf, which takes just a few minutes and doesn’t require any tools.

The Zip n Store organizers are also a great tool for meal and snack prep. You can prepare healthy snacks, and have them lined up for the week in one easy sliding organizer. The Zip n Store door unit holds up to 10 bags, and the full-size has 20 slots.

One Amazon reviewer calls the mid-size organizer “an organizer’s dream.” The five-star review says, “We are using them in our refrigerator and we have one mounted under our counter for holding all of our chip bags and snacks. It works as advertised it created more space and is saving us money by reducing food spoilage.”

Whether you want to make space in your fridge or pantry, or even organize various supplies, the Zip n Store organizers seem to be multi-functional and worth a try!

ABout Zip n Store:

Zip n Store is the brain-child of inventor Len Kensey and the result of a lifetime of an inventing and creative spirit.

Created in June of 2016, Zip n Store was then launched on Kickstarter, and raised over $150,000 within 33 days (only 1% of funded projects reach the 100K mark!).  Within 2 months of launching, Zip n Store was viewed over 25 million times on social media sites.

Now being sold on Amazon Prime throughout the U.S. and soon the world, Zip n Store’s dream is becoming a reality. This is Zip n Store… Storage… Simple n Easy!
