I can’t believe it is already SEPTEMBER! This year is flying by. Did you know that September is Better Breakfast Month? Just in time for “back-to-school”! This is the first year I am not starting a new school year, which feels a little weird. I have always been pretty good about taking time to eat a good breakfast in the morning, but my last year of school involved very early mornings and I let that good habit die. Now that I started working, I have been making time in the morning to enjoy a nice breakfast. I learned that hectic mornings shouldn’t mean sacrificing nutrition. Afterall, breakfast is the most important meal of the day!

The National Peanut Board has partnered with a few bloggers to highlight the nutritious value and versatility of Peanut Butter for Breakfast. I am so looking forward to what other bloggers come up with! For my recipe, I made these peanut butter and banana pancakes. The peanut butter served as a nice protein source in my breakfast, and gave the pancakes a delicious flavor. Peanut butter is a great addition to breakfast because it is a natural, plant-based source of 8 grams of protein and more than 30 essential nutrients. Making time for breakfast in the mornings and choosing to use ingredients like peanut butter which is high in fiber, protein and good fats can help you maintain a well balanced diet!

      The Peanut Banana Chip Brownies look really good! I think they would be my favorite. But my family east A LOT of peanuts so I will be trying a few of the recipes for sure.

      I giggled when I saw the Peanut Butter Banana Pancakes. I had never heard of peanut butter and pancakes until I met my husband. He loves peanut butter on his pancakes. I am a convert too! So delicious!

      I love peanut butter ON TOP of my pancakes, but I have never thought about it mixed in the batter! I am definitely doing this tomorrow morning!

      I have never thought to use PB in pancakes. I use them in smoothies so this will be something to try.
