I LOVE peanut butter. As in, I basically have to eat it every single day in some shape or form. I’ll spread it on toast, eat it with fruit, plop it on yogurt or oatmeal, or I’ll just eat it by the spoonful! Crunchy, creamy, flavored with chocolate or sprinkled with cinnamon…I’ll eat it all! It’s also a great option to add protein and fat to your meal or snack. In honor of this wonderful holiday, I have gathered a collection of delectable ways to enjoy peanut butter!
These healthy oatmeal bars have a touch of sweetness from the dark chocolate drizzle. What could be better than chocolate and peanut butter? Find the recipe here.
Peanut Butter Chickpea Dip
It’s hard to keep a this dip around, it’s so delicious! This is a perfect sweet treat that is also high in protein and fiber. Try this recipe for a football party, or any potluck!
PB and Chocolate Energy Balls
Energy balls are the perfect grab-and-go snack to bring with you for a long school or work day. This is a great recipe to make in bulk because you can freeze them for up to 3 months!
Savory Sweet Potatoes
You may be scratching your head over this one. My parents think I’m strange for doing it. But seriously, spread peanut butter over a piping hot sweet potato. You can even add a sprinkle of cinnamon. It is so delicious! I usually bake a bunch of small sweet potatoes on Sunday, and then eat them throughout the week for snacks.
