Pantry Friendly Nut Butter Recipes

Hi, friends! We hope that you and your families are staying safe and healthy during this time. Our thoughts continue to be with you and we hope that you are able to find small positives each day.

Are you experiencing a little food boredom and looking to spice things up in the kitchen? Don't get us wrong, the LOVE for a classic PB&J sandwich will always remain strong, though we wanted to share some of our favorite pantry & freezer friendly recipes using Georgia Grinders to spark inspiration.

Let's start with something savory! Our friend Sarah Chau, RD from @balancedbysarah, has been enjoying this Peanut Butter and Sesame Noodle Salad for years and was kind enough to share it with our team. Noodles and peanut butter are surely pantry staples right now, and our favorite part about this recipe is that you can use whatever vegetables (frozen or fresh) that you have on hand. Don't have edamame? Leave it out! Did you buy too much frozen spinach at the grocery store? Throw it in! You can check out Sarah's delicious recipe on our website here; she is also taking over our Instagram stories making it today if you want to tune in.

The next recipe is Faux Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs from @melissas_healthykitchen. They are a great treat to keep on hand right now and are perfectly festive for Easter this Sunday. You can make a double batch if you'd like and keep some in the freezer for later consumption; trust us, you'll want to. Check out the delicious recipe below or on Melissa's website!

Ingredients:
1 1/2 cup Georgia Grinders Peanut Butter
2 tbsp coconut flour (can substitute almond flour)
2 tbsp maple syrup
1 tbsp coconut oil + 1 tsp for melting chocolate
2 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup chocolate chips

Instructions:
1. Mix peanut butter, maple syrup, 1 tbsp coconut oil, coconut flour, vanilla extract in bowl or food processor.
2. Form into eggs, store in fridge or freezer for 10 minutes
3.Melt chocolate chips with 1 tsp coconut oil over stove top or microwave until melted
4. Dip eggs in melted chocolate, store in fridge or freezer for a couple minutes to let chocolate harden
5. Drizzle extra chocolate on top
6. Store in fridge or freezer in an airtight tupperware

Lastly, for a nostalgic treat, we are excited to share this Healthier Peanut Butter Puppy Chow with you! It only calls for 6 ingredients: our Creamy Peanut Butter, Barbara's Bakery Puffins (you can substitute another cereal, but we like making it with these!), coconut oil, dairy free chocolate, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract. Check out the recipe on our website or on @matcha_and_margs page. This would be a fun recipe to make with your kids at home, or to just enjoy to yourself :) We won't tell!
