Peanut Butter Breakfast Quinoa Banner

I’m a little guilty of being a little one-dimensional with peanut butter and just using it as a condiment on sandwiches or as a dip… maybe every once in awhile going a little nuts and making cookies out of it!

But for today I wanted to share a cozy fall breakfast peanut butter recipe featuring Skippy Natural Peanut Butter (and stay tuned in because I also am attaching a little giveaway to the bottom of this post!).
