10 REASONS: why peanut butter rules all the spreads!

Be it breakfast, second breakfast, elevenses, luncheon, afternoon tea, dinner or supper – read on to learn why peanut butter is the spread for any and every occasion!

1. IT’S ACTUALLY HEALTHY

Sure your sun pat variety is packed with salt and sugar, but there are plenty of varieties out there which are made purely from the nut itself. It’s also an excellent source of protein (yay for vegans) and good fats and oils. So woohoo – a healthy snack!

2. IT WAS CREATED TO GO WITH JAM/JELLY

peanut-butter-and-jellyP & J, peanut butter and jam, peanut butter and jelly – these two were meant for each other from the moment they entered this world. The thick, slight saltiness of the peanut butter blends perfectly with the sweet jam (strawberry is ideal). Have in a sandwich or on toast mmmmm.

3. PAIR IT WITH APPLE FOR A GREAT SNACK

4. IT GOES IN CAKE!!

5. IT TOTALLY GOES WITH SAVOURY TOO

Wack a dollop of this stuff in a stir fry or a creamy curry and it comes out an absolute treat. It adds a great nutty texture, particularly with crunchy varieties and a protein boost to your meal.

6. IT’S ALSO AMAZING ON ITS OWN

7. YOU CAN MAKE IT YOURSELF!

You just whizz peanuts in the blender and add other tasty ingredients as you desire: salt, sugar, agave syrup – you name it! It’s that easy.

8. FINALLY AN AMERICAN IMPORT I APPROVE OF

No thank you to crazy shoppers on black friday or walmart. But peanut butter is an enlightened invention that has only enriched Great Britain’s lands and people!

9. IT CAN BE SUSTAINABLE

10. IT’S JUST THE BEGINNING

Once you have become a seasoned peanut butter consumer you can discover the big, wide world of nut butters. Take your pick from cashew to hazelnut butter – or even three nut butters, or chocolate nut butter. The list goes on.
