Barney Butter Trial

This morning came way too fast – I hate when you wake up and feel like you’ve only been sleeping for 2 or 3 hours. It’s been a good morning so far, though. I woke up on time, the birds have been singing all morning, and I’m having a good breakfast. Sounds like a pretty good way to start a Monday.

Breakfast this morning was going to include this, in some way:



My free sample of BB arrived last week, and I couldn’t wait to try it after all I’ve seen and heard about it.

I made Nick and I some oatbran this morning (on the stovetop – not microwave!) and added my Barney Butter to the top of the steaming bowl of oatbran.



My bowl had:

  • 1/3 cup oat bran, 1 cup water, pinch salt
  • 1/2 banana, sliced
  • cinnamon!
  • 3 strawberries, sliced
  • 3 blackberries
  • 1 packet Barney Butter



The verdict? I really like it! It’s saltier than the kind I can find here, but I really like the flavor. I think I would get the crunchy, just because I like crunchy almond butter/peanut butter, but it was really good! Too bad I only got 2 sample packs!  :)

I also had a cup of milk with breakfast



And I’ll be taking some coffee with me to work, thanks to Nick!



Guess it’s time to start the work week  –  at least I have good reading material for the ride to work, right?


  1. Glad you liked the BB!!

    Happy Monday!!

  2. I thought the BB tasted like an almond butter version of Reese’s PB. Good, but not something I’d want all the time!

  3. Glad you enjoyed the BB, I haven’t tried it yet.

    Happy Monday, my friend!

  4. Hey, girlie and happy Monday! I just got caught up on your weekend, and it looks like you had a great one. Can I just say, biscuits and gravy… garlic knots… and breakfast casserole, OH MY! Lot’s of yummy eats for sure, and I’m glad you had some successful shopping.

    I finished “Animal, Vegetable, Miracle” on Friday, and loved it. I also thought it was cool that their farm is in VA, since their references to what’s available from month to month should be the same for me. I hope you enjoy it.

    I understand that Barney Butter is available at the Fresh Market, and I’m planning to go in search of it when I’m in Williamsburg this weekend. I still haven’t tried it, and I missed out on the free samples. Boo.

  5. MMMMMMMMMMMmm delicious!

  6. I’m still waitin for my BB! glad you liked it, I can’t wait to try mine! lmmmm….lovely bowl of oatmeal…great way to start the day! have a good one!

  7. I just tried BB last week. Honest? I think it’s too salty. It doesn’t taste as clean, to me, as many other nut butters I enjoy.
