Should You Choose Crunchy or Smooth Honey Peanut Butter?
We know the age-old debate – do you prefer crunchy or smooth peanut butter? For our cookies, we recommend using crunchy peanut butter as it complements the added peanuts perfectly. However, it ultimately comes down to personal preference. We suggest Ambrosia Organic crunchy peanut butter or our creamy Peanut Butter as they’re the best of peanut butter – not too greasy and perfect for this recipe.
