Happy Friday, everyone! I’m sorry for being MIA during the past week. I’ll give you look at what I did during the past week in tomorrow’s post. In the meantime, however, I’m sure you guys are all itching to know who won the FREE Saratoga Peanut Butter!!
The winner …
Danielle @ Coffee Run! (I love your name because it’s my middle name! :D ) Danielle, shoot me an email (thehappinessinhealth [AT] gmail [DOT] com) with your address and whether you want two smooth PBs or one chunky and one smooth, and I’ll get those out to you ASAP!).
Thanks to everyone for participating! You guys sent in some fabulous captions. And, I though it was pretty funny that the first thing many of you thought of was tooting ;)

Wow, you guys are clever! I can’t believe how many great captions you came up with! I’m definitely going to have another caption contest in the future :)
Before I leave you for the day, here’s a little recipe using not one, but TWO Saratoga Peanut Butters. Let us call it:
Banana-Sweet Saratoga Peanut Butter Balls
1/2 cup oatmeal
1/3 cup brown rice flour
1/3 cup Saratoga Peanut Butter, any kind (I used a combination of Plain Jane Creamy and Adirondack Jack)
1 very ripe banana, mashed
2 tbsp chocolate or carob chips
1 tbsp water or milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix the ingredients together in any order that you wish.
Once thoroughly mixed, roll batter into balls and place on greased or Silpatted baking sheet. Bake for 7 minutes, or until chocolate oozes in an attractive manner.
Place your PB balls in a well-lit area and admire your handiwork.
And that’s it! :)
Edited to add: This recipe can work with any kind of nut butter, especially if you have an allergy.
If you’re wondering, “what the heck did this girl do last week instead of blog??”, you’ll find out tomorrow. Until then, aloha!
Q: The weekend cometh! What will you be doing?
