Healthy Peanut Butter Snack Recipes!

I love peanut butter. And I bet you do, too.

Because peanut butter is high in fat and calorie dense, it gets a bad rap. But calories and fat, as I’ve mentioned before, don’t tell the full story. Peanut butter has a similar overall fat to saturated fat ratio as heart-healthy olive oil. It’s also high in protein, fiber – and very filling. It’s even been linked to weight loss.

To share some of my favorite peanut butter recipes, I put together this video on my Davey Wavey Fitness YouTube channel. Check it out.

  1. I’m not sure how very healthy this can be, but sometimes when I eat pancakes or waffles or french toast i put some peanut butter on them instead of syrup.

    • I think it’s better than syrup, but not all the pancakes or waffles are bad, I for instance making my pancakes with oil instead of butter and use whole wheat and brown sugar.

      • Try this: Use whole wheat flour (or a whole wheat instant mix) when making your pancakes, and replace all of the liquid ingredients with egg whites. You can buy pints or quarts of egg wite at the store if you dislike cracking eggs.

        Top with peanut butter, and you’ve got a high-protein, decently healthy, tasty breakfast.

  2. I like to make a banana/peanut butter protein shake for breakfast some times. Especially after a work out.
    I use half a frozen banana, probably 2 tablespoons of crunchy peanut butter (I eyeball the amount)and a scoop of Vanilla Whey protein powder. Throw in about 6 ice cubes and enough water to blend, usually a cup and a half. It just depends on what consistency you like it. Blend and drink. Sometimes I will use Chocolate flavored protein powder and it almost taste like a reeces peanut butter cup.
    It taste great!

      I make the same shakes. They DO taste like peanut butter cups, except better. But I use almond milk instead of water.

  4. One snack thats healthy is what my moms calls here “peanut bananna waffers.” She would have two waffers, some peanut butter, and bannana slices. Put a bannana slice on a waffer and add peanut butter to it then place the other waffer on it and your done.

    But she would trick us into doing things healthy to get them. My mom would put them into a plastic tin and tie them to,can you believe this the dog. And if we wanted to get one we would have to chase the dog until one of us gets tired and quits. So it was alot of work for a healthy snack. We all had a great time doing that we turned it into a game.
