Your New Go-To Recipes to Celebrate Peanut Month

We know that March technically ended yesterday, but we couldn’t resist sharing our favorite peanut recipes to (belatedly) celebrate Peanut Month! We kicked off last month by celebrating Peanut Butter Lovers’ Day, and celebrated the joy of the peanut all month long (and beyond)!

Don’t worry if you, your best friend, or your kiddos are allergic to peanuts — all of these recipes can be modified to use any other types of nuts or nut butter you may keep on hand. Feel free to make these your own to suit your family’s tastebuds!

Easy Peanut Butter Ball Recipe

Peanut butter balls, buckeyes, or peanut butter truffles — whatever you want to call these little cuties, they are delicious! They are made with sweet, creamy nut butter on the inside and decadent, rich chocolate on the outside — what’s not to love? In case you’re new here, we really love easy, realistic recipes, so this recipe only needs five ingredients and comes together in an instant. It’s up to you whether you opt for a full chocolate dunk, buckeye dunk, or stick with just a drizzle — maybe even a few of each!

Flaxseed Peanut Butter

Granted, this one is less of a “recipe,” but will still revolutionize how you use nut butter. We love natural ground nut butter without added oils, sugars, or fillers, but we admit that sometimes we get tired of the natural oil rising back up to the top. It may only take a little bit of time to stir in the oil each time, but what if we said you wouldn’t have to stir each time and you could give your nut butter a nutrient boost? Do you see where this is going… ? Next time you open up a 15 ounce jar of nut butter, stir in 3-5 Tablespoons Manitoba Milling Co. Smooth Whole-Milled Flaxseed. Not only will the nut butter stay mixed longer between uses, you will also add in naturally occurring fiber and omega 3 fatty acids!

Say goodbye to endless snacking that never satisfies — do yourself a favor and mix up a batch to snack on throughout the week!

It’s Sunday afternoon and you spent the week before watching the banana on your counter slowly darkening as the days go on. Sure, it might not hold up in a lunch box anymore — but it could help you make a tasty snack for the week ahead! Use up that abandoned banana and some common pantry staples to make a salty sweet treat that will please both the adults and kiddos in your life.

With warmer weather on the horizon, we are prepping all the chilly and refreshing treats. Enjoy the perfect cool snack supercharged with a creamy banana base, flaxseed, chocolate, and flax beverage all rolled into one! You can dive in straight out of the blender if soft serve is your thing, or you can let it firm up in the freezer if you want your nice cream to feel more like ice cream!

Peanuts are so versatile we can’t help but celebrate them all year! You will often find nut butter as a staple of many of our recipes because we love its versatility, good fats, and creamy texture.
