Tough Nut To Crack: 5 Things To Do With An Almost Empty Jar Of Peanut Butter

You have a craving for peanut butter, but goddamn if there’s only a smidge left. And not only that, but it’s nearly impossible to scoop out. By the time you figure out an effective way to release the clingy butter from the jar’s grasp, you might not even be in the mood for peanut butter. Strike while the iron’s hot! Here are 5 ways to not only get the peanut butter into your mouth, but to leave the situation with a clean jar…and clean hands!

1. Microwave It

This may seem obvious, but the peanut butter streaked jars in trash cans across the country say otherwise. Just nuke the jar for as long as it takes to unhinge the butter and you’re good to go.

2. Make Overnight Oats 

Here are three different ways to make oats straight from your nearly empty PB jar. Bonus: you don’t have to worry about making breakfast in the morning.

 

3. Make An Effortless Peanut Butter Sauce

One simple recipe uses basic household pantry items, like garlic and ginger. For more of a Thai spiced dressing, combine (in your jar) 2 Tbsp of peanut butter powder, 1 Tbsp (or whatever you have in your jar) peanut butter, 1 Tbsp maple syrup, 1 Tbsp coconut aminos or low-sodium soy sauce, and enough water to reach your desired consistency. Basically, you can combine peanut butter with any type of acid (lemon or lime juice), some spices and salt. Screw on the lid, shake, and voila — dressing!

4. Make A Sundae

Or “nice cream” by blending some frozen bananas in a commercial grade blender or food processor. Nuke the peanut butter jar for a quick 10 seconds (or so), throw in your dessert and enjoy! Add some milk if you want to make a shake. Eat right out of the jar.

5. Make…Peanut Butter

Bring your PB back to life by adding some peanut butter powder and a little bit of water or milk (and maple syrup if you want to get really crazy). Simply stir and spread (or drizzle), just like you would if your jar wasn’t already a ghost town.
