And the word of the day is…..

“Mondegreen”- a word or phrase that results from a mishearing of something said or sung.  (Merriam Webster.)

And the peanut butter food of the day is….

RUSTIC PEANUT BUTTER TARTS

I love eating these for breakfast, they are super delicious, and super cute.  They look like way more work to make, but they are actually super fast if you have pita on hand.

They’re not really tarts and I am not sure that they’re rustic, but that’s what I’m callin em.

Ingredients:

Pita

Peanut Butter

Maple Syrup (gotta use the real stuff its sooo much better than that corn syrup stuff)

1 apple

sugar

cinnamon

Listen while you cook:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Spread a layer of peanut butter on the pita.  Pour on some maple syrup (you could use honey or sugar instead) and mix it into the peanut butter.

Core the apple and slice pretty thin (1/8th of an inch).

Arrange the slices in a circle on the pita pieces.

Sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon.

Bake for 7-10 min (depends on size of the pita, you want the tops to be golden brown and crispy, and the peanut butter to start to bubble).

You can also broil them for a minute or so to get a nice crispy top crust (Pay attention if you do, I burnt mine black one day, but they were still delicious.)

I like to mix some homemade yogurt with some maple syrup, cinnamon, and cloves (to taste) and drizzle it on top of the pita “tarts”.  I also dip any leftover apple slices in the yogurt sauce, for an all around delicious and nutritious breakfast.

Yum

About PeanutButterProblem

love cooking, eating, and talking about food. I am a Sports Nutrition graduate student at University of Colorado Colorado Springs. I have a Food Science degree from Clemson University, where I specialized in Dietetics. I am fascinated by the effects of food on our bodies. I make almost everything I eat from scratch, its cheaper, tastier, and healthier. I also try to eat sustainably. I am a vegetarian, because I do not want to eat meat that is chock-full of hormones and pesticides. I have come up with some interesting cooking creations and I created this blog to share them with everyone.
