Hi Pro peanut butter collaboration!

Friday, December 11, 2015

The best part is having leftover
peanut butter for my bagels.
The good folks over at Hi-PRO Peanut Butter contacted me in October to try our their high protein peanut butter and develop a brand new recipe for their website.  I was definitely up for the challenge as I enjoy baking and eating peanut butter (not necessarily at the same time).  It was a win-win situation.

Hi-PRO tastes just like regular peanut butter and comes in smooth or crunchy.  During processing in the factory, additional peanut flour (which contains protein) is added to the peanut butter, which boasts 33% protein in every serving but no additional fat. This makes it an excellent post-workout snack.

When brainstorming ideas of what to make, I somehow thought of Elvis and how he was known for his fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches. I pitched it to Hi-PRO and they loved the idea.  Then I did some more research to find out his sandwiches also had bacon and grape jelly in them.  I started experimenting in the kitchen but was always going to leave out the grape jelly.  I figured the bacon would be challenging enough.

We used British bacon, but I think my American readers will find the thin slices in the good old USA will work much better.  You will have to try out my recipe and let me know what you think.  It is sweet and salty.  Add on some grape jelly (what the Brits call 'jam') and have all your taste buds firing.

Tweet me (@PTMollie) and Hi-PRO (@hipronutrition) with a snap of how you enjoy your Hi-PRO.
