(NC) - In March, the Peanut Bureau of Canada launched a nationwide recipe contest, Canada's Nuttiest Peanut Lover, encouraging Canadians to enter their favourite recipes that include peanuts and/or peanut butter for the chance to win some great prizes. Here is the winning recipe submitted by Andrea Holwegner, a registered dietitian from Calgary.
