I am a compensated brand ambassador for J.M. Smucker. All opinions are our own.
As a busy family of five who lives in California we are always looking for ways to make a difference. We live in a state that is in a severe drought and that means we are always looking for ways to cut back and save on water. In many of our communities the best way to make a natural difference is to help clean up trash which will better help preserve the water ways we have left. Also saving water each and every day is something we can all do to give back and really does make a natural difference.
As a family we enjoy spending time together and one place we like to spend our time is traveling through our National Parks. This year we are proud to support Smucker’s Make A Natural Difference campaign which helps to support our National Parks. An easy way to start making a difference is by purchasing Smucker’s, Adams All Natural, and Laura Scudder’s Natural Peanut Butters. Smucker’s helps support the the mission of the National Parks Conservation Association who’s mission is to protect and enhance America’s national parks for present and future generations.
This summer we found ourselves visiting 15 different National Parks throughout 3 states and we made so many wonderful memories. In fact, when I think of all the hiking and time we have spent in National Parks as a family I couldn’t imagine not having these places around anymore. It’s important that each and every one of us do our part to conserve and give back so we can enjoy our National Parks for generation after generation.

To get ready for a full day exploring your National Parks you have to get in a hearty a filling breakfast. Breakfast is one of our favorite meals of the day and it’s a great way to start an active day. To have some fun we decided to mix a few of our favorite things and making a Maple Peanut Butter Sauce was only the start!
Maple Peanut Butter Sauce Recipe
- 1 1/2 cups Adam’s All Natural Creamy Peanut Butter
- 1 1/2 cups Maple Syrup
- 2 TBSP Coconut Oil
One of my favorite things to do in the kitchen is to turn something ordinary into something truly extraordinary. This maple peanut butter sauce is probably my newest favorite flavoring for breakfast. It’s filling and rich but still sweet. It’s the perfect sauce for breakfast!
To make the pancakes we also wanted to make it fun and really filling for our busy day out at a local National Park so bacon was the simple answer here.
Simply cook your bacon, cut into pieces and add to your favorite pancake mix. Once your sauce has cooked together and is nice and warm and your pancakes are done you are ready to enjoy!
