Are you a breakfast lover?  I know there are some people out there that really dig breakfast.  They wake up ravished and like to dig into a nice hearty meal to start their day.  Then there are the non-breakfast people.  Those are the people who are happy to be awake for hours before even thinking about food.

Regardless of which category you fall into, I'm sure you've heard the old saying "Breakfast is the most important meal of the day" and even though there are tons of people out there not actually eating breakfast, most would agree that starting your day with some healthy food is what you should be doing.  It not only gives you energy but is linked to all kinds of health benefits.

My kids kind of fall into both categories.  See, on weekends, they sleep in a bit.  They wake up slow, roll out of bed and play for a while, then eventually, they are ready for breakfast and dig right in.

It's on the busy school day mornings that breakfast can be more of a hard sell.  At 7 am, they are less than sprightly when I wake them up to start the day and they come to the breakfast table still slightly groggy.  We all know that a healthy breakfast is super important, though, so it's my job as a mom to ensure that the kiddos are getting what they need.

Which brings me to this lovely Vanilla Honey Peach Butter made with Libby's sliced peaches.  A couple spoonfuls of this tasty peach spread helps me get my kiddos to wipe the sleep out of their eyes and look at breakfast in a new light.  While my daughter would love to eat it by the spoonful (as she has mentioned to me multiple times), as a condiment, this peach butter can be used to brighten up so many of the healthy breakfast foods that your body needs to get going!

Try a spoonful of it mixed into your oatmeal.  Spread it onto a slice of whole wheat toast, pancakes, or waffles.  How about a dollop on top of plain yogurt?!  Yup, it's good for that, too.  This honey-sweetened peach butter is totally versatile and a great way to freshen up your breakfast routine with some much-needed fruit.

And before you ask, no, there is no actual butter in peach butter.  Peach butter is akin to the more widely known apple butter that is made by slow-cooking fruit, a sweetener, and sometimes spices until the mixture thickens and the sugars caramelize.  The result is a velvety smooth, sweet, super delish fruit spread, or fruit butter.

I'm down for anything that can help me bring the kids to the table on a busy weekday, especially when there's fruit involved.  This Vanilla Honey Peach Butter is a budget-friendly way to do just that at just $0.33 per serving.  Can't beat that!

  3. I would like to try it on French toast.

  4. I will put it on an English muffin! Yum!

  5. I have been learning how to make homemade breads, biscuits, rolls and various pasties from scratch in order to provide more healthier foods for my family. It is my goal to have them starting their day sharing a few briefly stolen moments out of the busy hurried morning by sitting together and strengthen not just their bodies but their support system as a family. I am finding that the best way is through providing irresistible options at breakfast to tantalize them and I believe that this Vanilla Honey Peach Butter will be a hit over my homemade fresh morning breads and rolls served along with fresh hot crepes and cream cheese. Yumm! I love that the recipe uses Libby's Peaches as we always have trusted the Libby's product line and have for generation...that's why are pantry has a dedicated shelf just for them :) We use Libby's in everything from breakfast, brunches, salads, desserts and even in our fancier main course recipes for family suppers. The only problem I have is keeping certain family from eating them right from the can. LOL (I mostly am just happy their choice is such a good one to snack on though) I am looking forward to exploring more of the amazing recipes on the Two Bite Club because family tradition is the foundation for everything great! Thank you for sharing such wonderful recipes and info)

  6. I am most excited to try this on my homemade biscuits! Yep, southerner here and we love our biscuits :)

  7. I would like to try it on NutriGrain waffles...yummm
