A protein-packed morning is nutritionist recommended! Eating well before you rush off to study or work helps you stay fuller for longer, leaving you more focused, energetic and basically happier. Who wouldn't want to be happier? Duh. Here are 3 things you can make with peanut butter that are high in protein and good fats. Best. Mornings. Ever.
1. Toast topped with Peanut or Almond Butter and stuff
We've found that the more beautiful the toast looks plated, the more filling it is :). True story.
Slather Jaggery Creamy Peanut Butter or on to a toast and then cover with sliced banana, strawberry or any other fruit of your choice.
To make this savory, use the Chilli Chutney Peanut Butter and cover it with avocado, sliced egg, omlette or even left over veggies from last night.
You can use the Dark Chocolate Almond Butter too. Throw on some pine nuts - they taste good and look even better!
2. Easy-peasy Chocolate Shake
As loved by the little ones as the grown-ups - this chocolate shake has 2 ingredients and lots of protein.
Blend together a glass of milk and some Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter (or Almond Butter). Add your favourite fruit (we have a Banana-bias) if you want to. Drink up.
3. Oat Granola with Peanut Butter
What you need: Oats, Almonds, Coconut oil, Jaggery Creamy Peanut Butter, Honey (to taste), Chocolate Chips.
How to make it: Mix all the ingredients together and spread them onto a baking tray. Bake for 40-50 minutes. Once cooled, store the granola in an airtight container for up to a week. Devour with yoghurt or milk.
