Recipes for Celebrating National Peanut Butter Day!

Creamy, crunchy, savory, sweet. No matter which way you like your peanut butter, there’s no denying this food’s superstar status. So this January 24th, we’re naturally spreading the news about National Peanut Butter Day!


Peanut butter’s iconic status is in many ways tied to its equally iconic history. You might remember from your school days the groundbreaking research George Washington Carver did on the cultivation and consumption of peanuts (although he did not invent the spread, as is sometimes thought). But did you know…

  • Botanically speaking, peanuts are legumes, not nuts, which puts it in the same family as beans.
  • In the late nineteenth century, peanut butter was considered a luxury food and served at health clinics for the elite, sort of like the Victorian equivalent of kombucha or smoothie bowls.
  • Archibutyrophobia is the name for a fear of getting peanut butter stuck to the top of your mouth.
  • The world record for the most peanut butter consumed in one minute was set by Andre Ortolf in November 2017. Ortolf ate 378 grams, or 13.3 oz, which is roughly 1½ cups of peanut butter.

That’s all pretty nuts, right? But not as nuts as the sixteen different ways we’ll be celebrating National Peanut Butter Day. Check out all of our favorite peanut butter recipes below. And make sure to grab a container of delicious Fairway Peanut Butter for making all of your nutty creations!
