National Peanut Butter Lovers Day: Celebrate This Holiday with These Tasty Snacks
You Can Have Peanut Butter for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner, Too!
Perhaps there is no more popular spread in the world than peanut butter. It is yummy, it is versatile, and it is available in different varieties. You can go plain, chunky, creamy, extra nutty, or organic. But one thing remains the same – its flavorful appeal.
It’s no wonder March 1 has been declared as National Peanut Butter Lovers’ Day. It’s a day devoted for peanut butter aficionados to declare their love for this nutty spread and celebrate all that it stands for.
But first, let’s learn a few fun facts about peanut butter:
- It was Marcellus Gilmore Edson who patented peanut butter in 1884, so we have him to thank for this tasty treat.
- A survey found out that 72 percent of Americans prefer smooth peanut butter to the chunky variety.
- Out of all peanut butter brands, 42.1 percent of respondents declared their preference for Jif. Skippy came second with 23 percent, while Smucker’s took third place with 16.8 percent.
- You can have peanut butter in lieu of red meat or a burger. With this, you can save the planet 3.5 pounds worth of greenhouse emissions.
Peanut Butter Recipes You Can Try with Your Kids
Peanut butter is both flavorful and filling. That’s why you can have peanut butter for breakfast, lunch, and dinner should you choose to. Kids love peanut butter, whether it is paired with jelly or all by its lonesome.
Here are various ways you can use peanut butter in simple dishes that your kids will definitely go nuts over (pun intended):
- Peanut Butter + Smoothie
If your family enjoys shakes and smoothies, a spoonful of peanut butter can add protein to the healthy drink. It goes well with almost anything.
- Peanut Butter on Toast
One of the most classic ways to enjoy peanut butter is on bread. If you spread it on toast, it becomes even yummier because the heat from the bread makes the peanut butter smoother for a more even spread.
- Peanut Butter on Fruit
If your kid is a big fan of peanut butter but not of the fruit, you may want to spread some peanut butter over slices of apples or bananas to add another layer of flavor.
- Peanut Butter + Other Spreads
Peanut butter and jam is a sure-fire winner for most kids. You can also pair the spread with honey, marshmallow fluff, Nutella, raisins, bacon, banana, pickles, applesauce, apple butter, and potato chips.
- Peanut Butter + Veggies
If you can do it for fruits, you can do it for veggies, too. Vegetables take on a different appeal when they’re dipped in this spread.
- Peanut Butter in Desserts
You can use peanut butter as a yummy filling for cookies, cakes, pies, and other desserts. It is both healthy and satisfying.
