Every March is National Peanut Month, and there’s no better way to celebrate this month than to make a bunch of recipes with peanut butter. Here’s how you can do exactly that:
- Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie, from Fit Foodie Finds
Jumpstart your morning with this delicious smoothie, which is easy and quick to make. Slice and freeze two bananas the night before, then combine them with greek yogurt, flaxseed meal, almond milk, vanilla extract, and the flavor of the month: peanut butter. A dash of cinnamon is an optional way to take this one over the top. (And if you’re a smoothie lover, you can find a list of some more delicious breakfast smoothies here.)
2. Crispy Chocolate Peanut Butter French Toast, from How Sweet Eats
This peanut butter lovers’ twist on a classic french toast recipe is an amazing option for breakfast, brunch, or even dessert. While you’re making the french toast, toss some peanut butter and chocolate chips into a pan, and let the pan sit on low for a while to melt them together. Drizzle the melt over your french toast for a peanut butter delight you’ll never forget.
3. Peanut Butter and Jelly French Toast Sandwiches, from Macaroni and Cheesecake
Loving that Crispy Chocolate Peanut Butter French Toast recipe? This sandwich idea from Macaroni and Cheesecake takes that recipe to the next level. Make french toast the classic way, then use your toast slices as sandwich bread, spread your peanut butter and jelly on them, and toss your newly-made sandwich back on the pan for a warm, gooey delight.
4. Peanut Butter and Fleur de Sel Brownies, from Love And Olive Oil
For this absolutely delicious dessert recipe, you’ll make classic brownies — it’s the frosting where things get wild. Mix peanut butter with butter, powdered sugar, and Fleur de Sel or Maldon (two unique types of sea salt), and spread it over the brownie mix once it’s out of the oven. Serve these brownies fresh and warm or refrigerate them for later.
5. Sesame Noodles, from Two Peas And Their Pod
We know of few better twists on noodle dishes than this! Cook spaghetti or linguine as usual, and then combine peanut butter with some oils, sauces, herbs, and seasonings in a food processor. Drain your pasta when it’s cooked, then return it to its still-hot pot and mix in the blended sesame-peanut sauce over low heat. Beware — this one’s a dash spicy!
6. Peanut Curry Chicken, from All Recipes
This recipe doesn’t just use peanut butter: It uses actual peanuts too, so it’s the ultimate in peanut-heavy kitchen recipes. You’ll mix your peanut ingredients with chicken and a bunch of vegetables in a big pot, and you’ll toss the mix over a bowl of freshly made rice for a nutritious, filling dish that’ll make its appearance on the dinner table time and time again.
7. West African Peanut Soup, from Cookie And Kate
Did you know that peanut soup existed? It turns out that peanut soup is among the easier soup recipes to tackle. It uses very few ingredients, and it can double as a curry similar to the Peanut Curry Chicken recipe we just raved about.
