Reasons to love peanut butter

  1. It’s an affordable nut butter option. I know that there are tons of fancy options when it comes to buying nut butter these days, but I usually find that good old peanut butter is one of the most affordable ones. I do recommend using an all natural brand that’s just peanuts + salt.
  2. It’s packed with protein. Just one serving of peanut butter has 8g of delicious protein to help you feel full and satisfied.
  3. It’s versatile! As you’ll see below, there are hundreds of ways to use peanut butter in both sweet and savory recipes. Plus, it tastes amazing.
