Is there an ingredient more loved than peanut butter? Not in my family. With our crew of six, we go through it by the bucketful. And not just in PB&J’s. Peanut butter, and it’s nut butter counterparts, offer a filling protein-packed punch perfect for mid-day slumps and post-school snacking.

The four recipes below are not only easy to make – they’re great for all occasions. Whip up a batch of our Cashew Butter Granola to top off your morning yogurt. Then, pack up the rest in snack bags for the kids after-school events. Kids also love our Peanut Butter Dip!

Keep in mind, anyone with allergies for the specific nut in each recipe can easily substitute any other nut butter!
