Barney Butter GIVEAWAY!



Barney Butter is back! And Jennifer, the maker of this delicious treat, is giving away 2 jars!
 
But let me start with this story.  At our son's soccer game last week, my friend Dee made a batch of cookies with Barney Butter. Those around me helped devour the entire bag! Everyone kept asking what they were!  And then Dee told me she made this recipe - YUM!



What is Barney Butter?
It's just like peanut butter but better because it's made from almonds! My friend Jennifer is the master Barney Butter maker – I’m so impressed! (Check out Barney Butter recipes, here!)

What makes Barney Butter different?
With Barney Butter you get the same kind of peanut butter creaminess you grew up loving (or super-chunk if you like crunchy), only better with less than ½ the saturated fat of peanut butter, and more fiber, calcium, iron, vitamin E and magnesium than peanut butter. And that’s not all – Barney Butter is manufactured in an Almond Only Facility - no chance of cross contamination with peanut dust or peanut particles- which is a great solution for the peanut-allergic. Dieters and athletes love it. But everyone really eats it for the taste.

COMMENT
It's easy! Tell me your family's favorite cookie made in your home?

WIN
2 people will win a jar of Barney Butter!

TWEET
Tweet about the giveaway, your name goes in twice. (Come back and tell me, please.)

FIND OUT
Come back on Monday to see if you won!

The cookie we really love in our home is Peanut Butter. 

It's just the best, and when you add a chocolate KISS in the middle, like my Dad's wife Ginny, does - it's even better! 

A few months ago when I had foot surgery Ginny brought us several meals, and these cookies - which disappeared quickly.



Good luck on the giveaway and make sure and check out Barney Butter and pass the news on to your friends! Oh, and my friend Grace has 7 fabulous recipes that she has cooked with Barney Butter, here!

I would love to try the Barney Butter. I like good old chocolate chip cookies with nuts. I am not currently using my blog so my email is prodgers@bellsouth.net

Susie said...

It sounds so silly, but we actually love sugar cookies. My Annie (9) makes them all by herself and we love them. I hope I get to try this Barney Butter. Sounds yummy!

Actually my husband's favorite is Peanut Butter cookies. My kids and grandkiddos love any kind of cookies. Barney Butter sounds yummy...I've never seen it in Kansas!

BeckyB said...

I've never tried almond butter but I can't wait to!
One of our favorite cookie recipes is one I concocted that includes peanut butter, oatmeal, chocolate chips and corn flakes! It makes a crunchy, nutty, chocolatey treat that is gobbled up in no time! Thanks for this chance to win!

Oh yum! My favorite cookies to make are monster cookies but they don't get made often b/c of a son with a peanut allergy. Our standard cookie is oatmeal chocolate chip. I make a double batch and freeze in balls, then bake when we want fresh cookies.

Wendy said...

Our favorite cookie would be peanut butter with chocolate chips or with the peanut butter cups as you posted.

Anonymous said...

Our favorite is homemade chocolate chip cookies!

Dalia said...

I would have to say good old chocolate chips have been our favorite. But recently I started making peanut butter cookies that are gluten-free and my kids LOVE them!! The greatest thing about them is theres only 4 ingredients! The Barney Butter would be fantastic for this i'm sure.

shruley said...

Is anything better than chocolate chip?

laurel said...

The fave around our house is gingersnaps! I found the recipe on the internet about three years ago and it is a family standard now for Thanksgiving and Christmas both!

Our favorites shift from time to time --- right now, our favorite homemade cookie is a snickerdoodle. Thanks for sharing about Barney Butter!

joeandkris513 said...

Almond Butter sounds so good! My family loves peanut butter blossoms, but my favorite are looped jumbles (a soft sugar type cookie looped into a fish shape and dipped in chocolate. yummy!)

Kylee said...

I think our favorite cookie is a chocolate cookie with peanut butter chips. Yum!

Nicol said...

If it was up to my husband we would either eat sugar cookies or pumpkin cookies all year long. I, being the woman that I am, will never say no to a cookie. Therefore I love practically every cookie that enters into my house!

Jennifer M. said...

My favorite is Snickerdoodles. I see I'm not the only one!

Laura said...

Girlfriend my son has a peanut allergy and trying to find almond butter not cross contaminated is impossible. As far as I know this isn't available here in Canada yet.

Stephen and Lacey said...

Our favorite cookie is the Andes mint cookie-- I found the recipe on the back of the Andes Mint Chip bag!!

Astrid said...

We seriously don't have a favorite cookie recipe. We like 'em all! Although, if I'd have to guess it'd have to be a cookie with nuts in it (like the nut shortbread cookie I'm eating right now).

I've never heard of Barney Butter. Is this something available only in certain regions? I'd certainly love to try it! We generally eat lots of peanut butter around here but that's because the cost of almond butter is sky high.

Lynne in NC said...

We just love too many kinds to name a favorite!
Thanks for the chance to win some Barney Butter.

Sims Family said...

We love to add crunched up "bought" cookies to our homemades when they are on sale. (We don't like the boughts, but when they are cheap...) So we will add nutterbutters to our choc chips or crunched oreos. It makes them sooooo yummy. I bet adding barney butter would make them evn better.

Patty said...

We love chocolate chip cookies at our house but really any cookie will do!! We'd love to try Barney Butter cookies!

My best friend's mother made those cookies (pictured) when we were in HS. We would eat dozens at a time. Delicious.

I would love to try Barney Butter!

My favorite is sugar cookies, and my kids prefer frosting on them.

Cristie Campbell said...

You're killin' me with all these blogposts about sweets. I've already been thru 24 strawberry muffins...and now all this talk about cookies! ugh! well, anyway...the favorite cookie we make at our house is homemade oatmeal raisins. My husband is a HUGE fan.

Aubrey said...

I've been looking for almond butter lately! We like chocolate chip or pumpkin spiced oatmeal cookies.

katklaw777 said...

Oatmeal, cranberry and white chocolate chip are a fav around here. And around x-mas, look out, so many favorites I can't count. I would love to try Barney butter!

Cindy said...

Our favorite is no bake chocolate oatmeal cookies. I could eat a dozen by myself! ;)

Genevieve said...

i actually don't make cookies very often anymore because my husband makes the most amazing chocolate chip cookies! and coconut cereal ones. oh my... my mouth is watering now just htinking about them!

Bev said...

I heart Barney Butter... It is a staple in my kitchen.

Dawn S said...

My personal favorite is a chocolate chip cookie and I make them frequently. My family, however, has never met a cookie they didn't like!
We've bought Barney Butter before and it was a hit with my children!

Michelle said...

Chocolate chip cookies and oatmeal cookies are high on the list. My daughter is actually allergic to peanuts, so we have made cookies with SoyNut Butter and Sunbutter (made from sunflower seeds), but she's never tried almond butter. All of the brands we've found have been manufactured by a company that also process peanuts in the same facility. We'd love to give Barney Butter a try!

We love the Award Winning Chocolate Chip cookie recipe from Allrecipes.com.
We also love taking a peanut butter cookie, placing a large marshmallow on it bottom side up, microwave for 15 seconds (or until marshmallow softens), put a few pieces of chocolate and top with another peanut butter cookie. Yummy!

Elizabeth said...

Definitely shortbread!

And if baklava were a cookie, it would take the cake. I mean the cookie. Or something like that.

Trish said...

Choc chips are awesome but I love oatmeal cookies with nuts and dried cranberries! Barney Butter would be a pleasure to try ~

Wow... tough question. If you ask my son it's chocolate chip cookies. My husband it would be oatmeal raisin. Me, I love Spritz cookies (or pizzelles...yum!) The puppy, of course, loves his Milk Bones but I digress... We have tons of favorites in this house! Honestly? No good cookie goes to waste around here! I'd love to try the Barney Butter...

CAROLYN CARNEY said...

Hmm! Our favorite is chocolate chip/peanut butter. I would love to give the recipe a try with the almond butter. We faithfully eat our handful of almonds each day, but a little into our cookies would be great too!

I love your blog and your work with your daughter and her friends

Blessings to your weekend~

Lady Dorothy said...

Gotta go with the chocolate chip cookies, though peanut butter cookies is a close runner-up with my husband!

Suzann @ The Olive Cottage said...

Chocolate Chip Cookies are of course the #1 favorite, but Monster Cookies are clearly the favorite "non" traditional cookies and you use lots of peanut butter in them. Yum.

Laurie said...

Our family favorite is chocolate chip cookies warm from the oven. One of my sons is allergic to peanut butter, so I'm always looking for alternatives. I would love to give Barney Butter a try!

Mommy's Kitchen said...

My families favorite are fudge puddles. They are a peanut butter cookie cup with a fudgy puddle of fudge and butterscotch chips melted. Then the mixute is placed inside of the cookie up like a little puddle. I bet the barney butter would be awesome in that recipe.

Farmgirl Cyn said...

I'm gonna throw my hat in again, for Barney Butter! Our favorite is the old fashioned Peanut Butter cooky. With the cooler weather comin' on, they sound really good!

jancd said...

I would love to try this barney butter in my cookie recipes. Sounds divine.

GrammaGrits said...

The two standbys are chocolate chip and oatmeal although my fav is homemade ginger snaps. I'd love to try the Barney Butter - love almond butter! Thanks for the giveaway.

Empty Nest Full Life said...

Boy, I'd love to try the Barney Butter! Our favorite cookie is oatmeal raisin, and white chocolate chip macadamia nut. I'm on a diet but I think I'd have to go make some after seeing those wonderful looking cookies. Jackie

Sweet Pea Kisses said...

Sounds delicious! Our favorite cookies are what I call cow patties, but I've also heard them reffered to as boiled cookies, no bake cookies, etc. But they are basically oatmeal, pb, sugar, cocoa, milk and a little vanilla! So easy and very good, I would love to try them with Blarney Butter substituted for the pb!!

the irish librarian said...

our favourite here is cowgirl cookies-sort of a chocolate chip/oatmeal cookie. so yummy!
I would love to try Barney Butter-we don't have it here :(

Rebekah said...

We love the classic Nestle's Chocolate Chips cookies. I always use both semi-sweet and milk chocolate chips and LOTS of pecans. YUM! I may need to make a batch today! :)

I'd love to try Barney Butter. My daughter is allergic to peanuts and I'd love to have a delicious alternative to offer her. Hope I win!!

linda said...
