I like to consider EVERY MONTH National Peanut Month, but to celebrate Georgia’s most famous legume, I partnered with the Georgia Peanut Commission to do my favorite thing: Make scrumptious recipe videos and, well, taste test. Just give me a jar of peanut butter and I’m a happy girl– it’s what I consider breakfast most days!
Eating a nutritious breakfast packed with peanut powered protein really sets the tone for the day and can even help with weight loss by keeping your blood sugar stable and fueling your metabolism. This super easy breakfast idea will keep you fuller longer– plus they can be prepped ahead of time — and they taste amazing! Hello, Peanut Butter Cranberry Energy Bites!
These are no bake, no hassle, prep ahead delish! And, you can feel even better about your peanut inspired breakfast because it’s loaded with protein and potassium which lowers your risk of blood pressure and heart disease.
