If there is one thing I love on this earth, it is peanut butter and I am so thrilled to find out that November is National Peanut Butter Lovers Month! Like who knew? As someone who will never let go of a peanut butter sandwich and tries to find a way to have peanut butter in every meal, here are things you can make or just add peanut butter, to make it more delicious.

  1. Add Peanut Butter to a Banana

This is truly one of my favorite combinations. I either cut a triangle shape indent out of the banana and fill it with peanut butter, cut it into slices and dip it into peanut butter, or just slab some peanut butter on top of the banana have a bite, and keep doing that till it’s gone!

  1. Spread Peanut Butter on Waffles or Pancakes

My brother used to do this all the time when he was little and I thought it was gross mixing with the syrup, but after trying it, my taste buds were in heaven!

  1. Eat it With Celery or Carrots

Now, don’t knock it till you try it! Most of us know people eat peanut butter with celery, but my favorite is eating peanut butter with carrots. It is just like peanut butter with celery, it’s actually pretty good! I saw a friend do this in college and I have hoped on the carrot peanut butter train with her.
