Great Summer Recipes
Nutty Overnight Oats in a Justin's Classic Cashew Peanut Butter jar on a blue and brown gingham cloth with a wooden backdrop

The nuttiest part about this Nutty Overnight Oats recipe is how easy it is to make. Mix all the ingredients the night before and boom! You got yourself breakfast. This one’s a kid-favorite because you can top it with whatever you want to enhance it’s already-delicious flavor. It’s not crazy, it’s just nutty.

 

Chocolate Hazelnut Tart with Rosemary and Orange with 3 small pieces cut and still inside the tart on a white background

Tart. Tart. Just try saying it out loud. The word itself even sounds tart. Do you ever say a word so many times that it doesn’t sound like a thing anymore? If that’s the case, you better stop talking and start baking. My Chocolate Hazelnut Tart with Rosemary + Orange are definitely a thing. I think.

 

Frozen Chocolate PB Banana Pops with chocolate drizzle, rainbow sprinkles, Justin's honey peanut butter jar and two bananas

Contrary to what you may be thinking the “PB” in this Frozen Chocolate PB Banana Pops recipe stands for “perfectly blended (flavors)”. Ok not really, but that doesn’t make it untrue. This recipe is tasty and a great way to stay cool on hot days. I make them with JUSTIN’S® Honey Peanut Butter, fresh bananas, and decorate them with sprinkles. It’s a great project that you can make and eat with the kids!
