3 Easy Peanut Butter Recipes

My kids went back to school this week, which means when my alarm goes off in the morning, I actually have to get up instead of hitting the snooze button and checking to see if that cute mouse with a hat filter will ever show back up on Snapchat.

If you’re looking for a few tricks to make meals and snacks a little less hectic, here are some super easy recipes that you (or your kids) can whip together in just a few minutes.

1. Loaded Peanut Butter ToastToast a slice of whole grain bread. Combo 1: Peanut butter, shaved toasted coconut, and chocolate chips (if desired). Combo 2: Peanut butter, sliced strawberries. Combo 3: Peanut butter, sliced bananas, and a sprinkling of cinnamon.

2. Apple Peanut Butter Snack Pack

Soak apple slices in club soda for 10-15 minutes to prevent brownness. In a Bento box or reusable sandwich box, add sliced apples, 2 tablespoons Jif Cinnamon or Maple Peanut Butter, and any desired toppings like unsweetened shaved coconut, dark or semi-sweet chocolate chips, sliced almonds, chia seeds, or raisins/Craisins.

3. 3-Minute Oatmeal

In a microwave-safe bowl, combine 1/2 cup quick cooking oats, 1 cup unsweetened almond coconut milk, and a pinch of salt. Cook for 1 1/2-2 minutes, then carefully remove from microwave. Add 1-2 tablespoons of your favorite peanut Butter, 1 handful blackberries or blueberries (about 1/3 cup), 1-2 teaspoons chia seeds, and real maple syrup to taste.

I hope that gives you some ideas to help the school year get off to an amazing start!



  1. Cute mouse with a hat filter?

    We love peanut butter and bananas and peanut butter and apples but I’d never thought about peanut butter and coconut. Yum!

  2. Oooohh, Kate, will you please move in with me and make me these every morning? 😉 Breakfast is my worst. (Also, Lichtenberg and dinner. I’m a mess ?) Seriously, I have neither time nor energy to plan decent breakfasts. But I’m going to try with these ideas! My kids are thanking you already 🙂
