Who doesn't love a hearty helping of peanut butter? Whether you choose to smother it on your toast for breakfast or eat it out of the jar as a snack, peanut butter lovers around the world will be taking a moment today to recognise, National Peanut Butter Day. 

Here are a few of our favourite ways to eat peanut butter - did you know that you can add it to pretty much every meal?

Peanut butter with strawberry, cherry and banana smash toast

Crunchy peanut butter on rye gets a fruity makeover. We've topped our rye with segments of cherry, strawberries and banana, but you can add whatever fruit takes your fancy.

Peanut Butter pancakes 

Whether you eat them as a tasty dessert, or treat yourself and the kids to a stack for breakfast at the weekend, these peanut butter pancakes taste sensational with fruit, crème fraîche or crispy bacon. Or why not try all of the above together?

Chicken satay skewers

Peanut butter is the key ingredient in any satay. So ramp up the heat with our spicy, Asian-inspired chicken satay skewers which can be on the table in half an hour. It sounds like the perfect Saturday night fakeaway option to us!

Chicken & peanut butter curry

This peanut curry comes from West Africa. The rich sauce looks and tastes like a korma because it's thick and creamy, but it is also infused with Thai spices and the magic ingredient - peanut butter. Serve the dish with some rice or quinoa for a tasty and comforting homemade treat. 

Turkey satay stir-fry

Struggling for ideas for dinner tonight? Why not try this quick and easy stir-fry. You don't need to buy a ready-made sauce when the satay sauce is just three ingredients (soy sauce, sweet chilli, peanut butter) and tastes incredible.

Peanut butter lava puddings

Who doesn't love a melting middle pud? Dig through the baked crust of this irresistible dessert to find a layer of melted coffee-flavoured chocolate with a nutty and tasty twist. 

Peanut fudge

Peanut butter fudge never disappoints especially when you're in the mood for something sweet. And with our recipe it's never been easier to satisfy your sweet craving. To make the little squares, simply melt some butter in a large pan, add brown sugar and milk and stir over a low heat until the sugar dissolves. Stir in the peanut butter and vanilla. Put some icing sugar in a large bowl and pour on the hot mixture then beat with a wooden spoon until smooth. Spoon into the tin and cool. Then cut into squares. 

Peanut butter cookie ice cream sandwiches

These yummy gluten-free cookies, which have a hearty helping of peanut butter, are gorgeous on their own but extra tasty in a strawberry ice cream sandwich. Once again, peanut butter has the power to take an already delicious dish up another level.
