Nutrition Monday ~ Nut Butter Spoons

Sometimes simple is best.  When it comes to snacks for both children & us bigguns, quick is the name of the game, which usually translates to carb-o-rama. Crackers, cookies, cereals, chips...  Carbs aren't all bad, but when you're trying to make as much from scratch for both nutritional & financial reasons, a lot time can be spent in the kitchen keeping up with the high demands of snackage.

My kids were fascinated by watching my parents spoon out some peanut butter for a speedy breakfast or snack. They became the coolest grandparents ever.  Hello!  What a great idea!  My children adore their nut butter snack spoons.  Quick, easy, nutritional.  That's what I'm talkin' 'bout.

While we're on the subject, did you know storing nut butters upside-down naturally makes stirring the oil super-easy?


  1. GREAT IDEA! I Buy Plastic spoons for lunches I will take some almond butter with apples Thur! YAY

  2. Thanks for the tip about storing nut butters upside-down. I was doing this already, but didn't realize other people did. It just made sense.

  3. Thanks for the tip on this one, Katie! I read it sometime last year and have utilized it often. So simple, so easy, and my 2 yr. old son especially loves it. In fact, I sometimes find him sitting on the floor by the fridge, spoon in hand, helping himself. We had to have a little talk about that one, lol.

  4. I'm so glad that I'm not the only one that does this! :) I do this once a week or so when I'm running super late and don't have time for breakfast - I just grab a spoon and scoop up some peanut butter and I'm off! I, like you, figure it's semi-nutrient dense, full of protein and fats, better than what most people are eating for breakfast! And thanks for the tip about storing the peanut butter - I am going to start doing that!


I value your feedback. Thanks for taking the time to share yours!
