Justin's Almond Butter Squeeze Packs
I always read about those people who go to great lengths to bring perfectly-packaged baggies of homemade granola on the plane, along with, oh, you know, fresh whole-wheat pasta salad with roasted veggies and olive oil. Love it, good for them, but I know myself, and I'm never going to be one of those people - not least because I don't really ever want to eat meals on the the plane. I basically just want to munch on stuff all the time to make the hours go by- which is why I take great care in bringing fun, yet healthy, snacks on the plane. Bare Snacks chips don't have any additives - they're just dried apples and cinnamon - which is great because they're fun to eat, especially paired with Justin's Almond Butter packets. Spreading almond butter on the chips is a fun activity that distracts me for at least ten minutes (hey, every minute counts), and doesn't leave me feeling gross.
When it comes to eating, I enjoy products that my family and I can completely love (full of bold flavor!) as well as products that are healthy and organic. Justin’s has been one of my Go-to brands, especially when it comes to their Almond Butters and Peanut Butters. Graciously, I am super thrilled to be expressing my love for this brand because I am first and foremost a devoted consumer of their products on any given day and secondly, this company is one of the few company’s that I wholeheartedly trust their ingredients. That is why I’ve decided to share all that’s Justin My Plate: Chocolate Hazelnut, Peanut Butter Cup, + Almond Butter.
To be honest, I throughly enjoyed every flavor profile that each product offered! My personal favorites (and my little guy’s too!) were the Peanut Butter Cups in both Dark and Milk Chocolate. If you’re a lover of Reese’s Peanut Butter cups (like me!), then you’ll surely love these and their made with good ingredients, Ya’ll! Plus, my little guy loves the Honey Peanut Butter + Banana Chips packets. Who knew that Banana Chips taste so good with peanut butter? Hmmm. I’m a believer now! Besides, it’s a perfect “on the go” snack for you or your little one.
Anyway, I chose to experiment with all the flavors that were included and while I’m not a HUGE chocolate fan, I must admit that the Chocolate Hazelnut Butter was crazy good! It’s definitely a nice balance and it certainly made great waffles for breakfast! To top things off (and to offset all the chocolate), I chose to add caramelized bananas atop by sautéing 3 ripe bananas in skillet with 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1/4 cup of honey, + 1 tsp of cinnamon and letting everything melt together until it was nice and bubbly. In addition, I was able to experiment with my favorite easy to make snack—-Energy Bites! It was bursting with bold flavors, especially since I used the Peanut Butter Cups instead of the usual chocolate chips. It’s a great snack or morning bite on a busy day and I recommend giving it a try. Plus, it’s great for energy and is packed with a ton of nutrients from the rolled oats, honey, ground flax seeds, and whatever else you decide to include (chia seeds, coconut flakes, etc.).
Justin's Peanut Butter Cups
The OG healthy peanut butter cups, Justin's have become something of an addiction—and we can see why. Made with fair-trade dark chocolate and organic peanut butter, these have a sweet, rich flavor and a creamy, addictive filling. The only downside? While Justin's nut butter comes in tons of nut varieties, the cups are still peanut butter only, a bummer for those trying to avoid the legume.
Justin's Mini Peanut Butter Cups
This peanut butter company makes mini peanut butter cups that give Reese’s Miniatures a run for their money. All the ingredients are organic, and the brand uses a substantial amount of real peanuts in the creamy, nutty center. They come in milk and dark chocolate varieties.

Justin's Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups
After browsing Pinterest and seeing so many cute Halloween dessert ideas, I became inspired to recreate one using only all-natural & vegan-friendly ingredients. Although I would not call these “healthy”, they do contain clean ingredients you can actually understand/pronounce! I believe if you’re going to treat yourself to sweets, you should still be conscientious of what’s in them. Instead of using regular mini Reeses, I swapped them for mini organic Justin’s peanut butter cups! The Justin’s team was kind enough to send me over a few peanut butter cups when I told them I was writing this post so thank you Justin’s! Below is my favorite vegan peanut butter cookie recipe. It is extremely simple and takes only 20 minutes to make! Right after the recipe I’ve included instructions on how to make the spider cookies! Enjoy!

Instructions: 1. Using a small amount of frosting, stick a Justin’s peanut butter cup face down in the center of a cookie. 2. Add frosting to a piping bag and pipe 8 spider legs on top of the cookie. If you do not have a piping bag, add frosting to a ziplock bag and snip off a tiny piece of one of the bag’s corners to use to pipe the legs. 3. Attach the eyes using a small dot of frosting. 4. Place in the fridge to cool. 5. Optional: Lay a spider web doily over an orange napkin to display your cookies on!
