I honestly was not always the biggest fan of peanut butter. It used to be one of my least favorite things. But everything changed when I was pregnant with my son. For the first trimester, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches were my go to and all I could stomach. Now.. I eat peanut butter much more often and actually enjoy it too. Crazy how pregnancy can change what foods you like!

Tips For Success
- Use organic products without added ingredients, even vitamins. They are often synthetic and not good for you. It's best to get your nutrients from whole foods, not a lab. I opt for grains that are gluten free and that are not fortified.
- If you don't want to use oats, feel free to sub it with something such as flaxseed meal. It's another way to get some added nutrients in and make it a more filling bowl.
- This bowl is thick from the peanut butter and oats, but you can also freeze your ripe bananas prior to blending. This will make it even more cool, creamy, and thick.
- Don't have peanut butter? Use another nut butter like almond butter instead. It will be just as tasty!
- Go crazy with your toppings and try some of your favorites. You can even add fresh fruit like strawberries on top.
- These smoothie bowls are best when eaten fresh but if you can't finish it, you can store it in the fridge for up to 3 days. It just won't taste as good so I don't recommend it.
