Peanut butter sometimes gets a bad reputation for being high in calories, but it’s a healthy food that is quite nutrient dense. Peanut butter is a good source of plant-based protein, dietary fiber, and heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids. The combination of these macronutrients helps to slow down digestion, making peanut butter a very filling and satisfying food.
In addition to protein, fiber, and healthy fats, peanut butter is a source of:
- Vitamin B6
Note: All of my recipes with peanut butter use natural peanut butter, with peanuts as the only ingredient.
