Happy National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day! I’d like to tell you a joke about peanut butter . . . but you might spread it! We all love peanut butter for its nutty flavor and smooth or crunchy consistency. This household staple is perfect in a sandwich, cookie or paired with fruits and veggies, but did you know that peanut butter is in endless amounts of breakfast, lunch and dinner recipes? In celebration of National Peanut Butter Day, I have compiled a list of delicious recipes that are delectable and easy to make! 

Granola Bites. The perfect grab and go snack that is easy to make! Packed full of oats, honey, dried fruits and coconut, these granola bites utilize peanut butter as the “glue” that holds the ingredients together. These bite sized treats are the perfect “pick me up” during the day and are stored in the fridge so the oats can absorb moisture. 

Peanut Butter-Tofu Mousse Tart. Listen, I know what you’re thinking. Tofu in a dessert, will that taste good? The answer is yes! Tofu is a flavorless protein substitute that takes on the flavor of other ingredients . . . in this case: peanut butter! Tofu also creates a silky-smooth texture when blended which makes for the perfect mousse texture! Top this yummy dessert with chocolate chips or drizzle and serve!  

Thai Shrimp Zoodles Bowl. Looking for a dinner that feeds lots of people and is incredibly tasty? Thai zoodles are the perfect option as they are simple to make and assemble. Utilize PICS peanut butter in the mouth-watering peanut sauce that the dish is served with. This recipe is filled with fresh and delicious ingredients and takes no longer than 15 minutes to prepare and serve!  

These recipes are only a fraction of delicious meals that utilize peanut butter. And what about the people who can’t eat peanuts? Don’t worry! There are plenty of plant and nut butter options located at Price Chopper/Market 32 for each and every person’s dietary restrictions. We hope that you go nutty for our PICS peanut butter options!
