March is National Peanut Month!  (Yes, this is real).  Whether you’re into snacking on peanuts, classic PB & J’s, or adding peanut butter to savory dishes, it’s time to celebrate.

A few peanut facts:

  • Peanuts are the highest protein nut
  • Peanuts aren’t a tree nut, they’re a legume (like beans)
  • Peanut butter is a great source of heart-healthy fat, fiber, and protein

Delicious Ways to Use Peanut Butter

1.  Peanut Butter and Jelly Rolls (pictured above).  Check out this award-winning recipe!

2.  Peanut Butter Pulled Chicken Sandwiches.  A unique take on the classic BBQ pulled meat sandwich.

3.  Asian-style Peanut Dressing.  Not only is this a fabulous salad dressing, it’s also a great way to get the remaining peanut butter out of an almost-empty jar!

4.  Grilled Chocolate Peanut Butter & Banana Sandwich.  Need I say more?  YUM.

5.  Stir-fried Noodles with Peanut Butter Sauce.  An easy, one-pan meal for your busiest weeknight.
