I keep getting these e-mails that March is National Peanut Month. I’m confused, because I didn’t know we needed a month for that. Isn’t every month peanut lover’s month? Or at least, peanut butter lovers month?

In any case, here is a cinnamon peanut butter recipe in honor of yet another one of these silly food holidays.

It’s a real toss-up on which is better. This cinnamon peanut butter or the vanilla cashew almond butter I made a few weeks ago. I made a lot more peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with this batch!

It certainly was a lot cheaper though. About 2/3 of a $2.00 canister of unsalted peanuts was all it took! Oh – and a lot less patience. The peanuts were much easier to process into a creamy consistency than the cashews and almonds.

This peanut butter was delicious in protein shakes with a little banana, spinach, almond milk and chocolate or vanilla protein powder. I’ve been going through banana bread like no other with this stuff too.

I can’t wait to try all kinds of new recipes with this. First on my list will be peanut butter cookies. And then some vanilla peanut butter energy bites!

Are you celebrating National Peanut Butter Month? Year? Eternity?
