Breakfast

It has been long argued that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. So, why not add some high-quality and protein-rich peanuts? Check out our recipes below to see how you can provide a nutritious twist on some old favourites.

 

Chocolate, Peanut Butter and Banana Smoothie Bowl

Skip the cereal bowl, and try this smoothie bowl for breakfast. This sweet-themed breakfast sounds decadent, but is surprisingly health thanks to the protein-packed greek yogurt, and protein and fibre-rich peanuts.

Mexican-style Breakfast Sandwich

Start your morning with these deliciously messy, all-out breakfast sandwiches inspired by traditional Mexican flavours. Meat eaters can kick this sandwich up a notch by adding bacon, a salty and savoury combination with the peanut butter. Serve with hot sauce to add some heat.

Five-Spice Peanut and Pumpkin Muffins

Pumpkin, nuts and spice - it's like a taste of fall! Adding peanut butter to muffin batter packs extra protein and helps keeps the muffins moist. This recipe can also make a delicious loaf; simply bake at 350°F (180°C) for an hour, or until a tester inserted in the centre comes out clean.

Overnight Peanut and Pear Muesli

This delightful muesli is a great breakfast or snack option for those who live with diabetes, and offers beneficial fibre, calcium, iron and folate. The peanut butter, oats and yogurt in this recipe provide the nutrition kick, and the cinnamon and ginger will delight the tastebuds.

Trail Mix Yogurt Parfait

Managing a healthy diet has never been easier! This great blend of yogurt, fruit and peanuts is full of calcium and protein.

Instead of peanut butter slathered on a bagel, bake up an all-in-one loaf – perfect with morning coffee or juice.

Double Peanut Granola

Dish it up with milk or sprinkle it on yogurt, this not-too-sweet granola is delicious. It freezes easily too.

Peanut Butter Banana Muffins

This recipe puts a spin on the classic combination of peanut butter and bananas. Topped with high-quality U.S. peanuts, these versatile muffins are a perfect treat!

Fruit and Oatmeal Breakfast Bars

Instead of cereal or a muffin, serve these family-pleasing, cake-like breakfast bars with wedges of cantaloupe or a bowl of fruit.
