Ask The Muscle Cook: Any Muscle-Building Peanut Butter Recipes?
I love peanut butter. But besides smearing it on bread and eating it out of the jar, I'm not sure what to do with it. Do you have some fun recipes?
Peanut butter is a great source of healthful fats, but make sure you go with all natural or organic. It's also better if you can find peanut butter that doesn't have added salt.
I never go without it in my house.
Adding peanut butter to shakes, muffin recipes and even meat dishes (yep, it does work with chicken) can add some extra protein and healthy fats to your diet. If you're looking to build, adding peanut butter can add some much-needed calories.
Here are some of staple peanut butter recipes!
Dave's Anabolic Blueberry Oatmeal
Makes 1 Serving
- In a big bowl, mix all ingredients (except for frozen blueberries).
Cook in a microwave for about 3-4 minutes (cooking time vary from one microwave to another).
- Stir after 2 minutes of cooking so the mix doesn't stick or get chunky.
Once the mix is cooked, add the frozen blueberries and enjoy!

If you choose to buy Dave Ruel's ebook, beware that he will not hold to his return policy. I did a two week trial for I think $5, then contacted him in various ways never to get a response. I was later charged the additional $42. The book isn't bad, but if you don't eat meat it becomes almost useless (my case). Just a caution to those with similar goals as me.
Try some peanut butter protien balls, I make them in Bulk, 1/4 cup Natty PB
4 Scoops of chocolate Protien, (I use myofusion)
1 cup of rice Crispies.
It helps to melt the pb in the Microwave for easier mixing, Miz it all together and form a Tablespoon size ball, makes for a great snack when you get that sweet tooth.
