Delicious Recipes Using Peanuts

March is National Peanut Month which means, of course, I needed to write about all-things peanuts. I polled my friends on Facebook to find out what their favorite recipes were and one came through my feed from Rebecca Lesue. She recommends adding peanuts to your stir fry and says this recipe from the Minimalist Baker is one of her favorites.

I love to add peanuts to my trail mix. Here’s my personal recipe:

dried cranberries, peanuts, plain m&ms, popcorn

For recipes using peanut butter…I received quite a few.
