Natural Peanut Butter vs. Reduced Fat Peanut Butter
By CANDICE GREY
Update: Aug 08, 2019
The list of items at the grocery store to choose from are endless, and while this might be a great advantage of living in a well established nation it also can cause problems. Keeping food simple and pure is always the healthier route, and this especially goes for peanut butter choices. When I stroll down the aisle at the grocery store I see brands like Skippy, Jif, Smucker’s, and Adams. Some peanut butter is already pre-made with a sugary purple jelly like substance for even more convenience when making your PB&J. While these are nice to have in case of a hurry or camping trip, just steer clear of them in your weekly grocery store visits.
Reduced fat versions of peanut butter are known for having much more sugar than just regular peanut butter. They usually have a longer list of additives and preservatives too, which makes them unhealthier than just buying regular old peanut butter. When you complicate a simple food, it only causes problems! Natural peanut butter has less salt and sugar, yet the same creamy peanut taste to enjoy!
- 15 ounces shelled and skinned Roasted Peanuts
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 1/2 teaspoons honey
- 1 1/2 tablespoons peanut oil
Place the peanuts, salt and honey into the bowl of a food processor. Process for 1 minute. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Place the lid back on and continue to process while slowly drizzling in the oil and process until the mixture is smooth, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Place the peanut butter in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 2 months.
