Nut butter is one of life’s greatest creations. You can smear it on your toast, on your pancakes, mix it in your protein shakes and even blend it in with some yoghurt. It’s so versatile, yet so damn delicious. MyProtein has a whole host of nut butter ranging from the standard peanut butter all the way to a triple nut butter containing cashews, almonds and peanuts.
Personally, I’m totally in love with Almond butter, but not so in love with the price tag (although, MyProtein is the cheapest place I have EVER found it). So, we tend to stock up on the next best thing, crunchy peanut butter.
MyProteins Peanut Butter
Filled with healthy, natural fats Peanut butter is one of those products that make people freak out! Either due to the fact that they are totally in love with its nutty deliciousness or because they’re on some faddy diet and the calories scare them. Yes, it’s high in calorie – but it’s high in fats and high in protein, so it’s to be expected.
In fact, just 2 tablespoons of peanut butter can provide you with around 200 calories. If you’re dieting, it’s probably not the best product for you to eat daily – but you shouldn’t completely eliminate it as it has so many benefits.
No matter what sort of diet you’re on, your body requires healthy fats to run effectively and MyProtein’s peanut butter can give you exactly that.

It’s no lie, I absolutely adore this stuff. But, it does take some getting used to. It’s completely different from shop bought peanut butter. The first time I ever tried this, I wasn’t that keen. I was so used to the sugary, salty taste of the shop bought stuff that this “natural” peanut butter seemed boring. You see, the supermarkets tell you their peanut butter doesn’t contain added sugar and salt, but one quick look on the back of the label and you’ll see they do.
Now, I’m so used to MyProteins peanut butter that we once ran out and I had to buy some shop stuff while I waited for our order – it was hideous. I tried to find the most natural “organic” and faffy one I could find, thinking it was more likely to mimic the taste, it was horrible. Then I bought some standard Sunpat and the saltiness was vile. I couldn’t wait for the order to arrive. PLUS the shop bought crap is so expensive, for a tiny jar I paid around £3-£4.
You’ll notice too when you open the tub some oil separation will have occurred, that’s completely normal just stir it back in and you’ll get the normal, deliciously gooey texture you should have. I normally store mine (pre-opening the seal) upside down in the cupboard so the separation sits underneath and it’s easier to stir in.
Peanut butter is such a versatile product. I recently went to a Thai restaurant and ate Pad Thai and it had a great peanutty flavour, which made me realise I tend to forget about adding it to lunches and dinners.
It can be used to make satay chicken, stir fry, a whole host of Thai meals, you can even make a peanut hummus.
PLUS you can’t forget the sweet stuff, use it on pancakes, in your porridge, on your rice cakes or a personal favourite of mine: Two teaspoons straight from the tub to mouth.
