Naturally More Peanut Butter

Author: Healthnuttxo


Peanut Butter. Not a day goes by that I don’t consume either A. some type/variety of peanut butter or B. apples. (what a coincidence that they go perfectly together!) I’m always up for new varieties to try, like the Naturally More Peanut Butter. I had tried the Organic Naturally More Peanut Butter, and really enjoyed it. I was hoping I’d like the original as well!

Some interesting things about this peanut butter, it has 4 grams of fiber and 10 grams of protein for a 2 Tbsp serving, with only 11 grams of fat. According to the jar, this peanut butter is “fortified with flax seed, flax oil and other nutrients” as well as containing “omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids. It’s What Peanut Butter Should Be!” Sounds good to me!

So I opened up the jar and noticed a thick layer of oil and floating flax seeds on top. Not the prettiest, but nothing a little stirring couldn’t fix. I stirred it up and placed it in the fridge to set for a little while. Then I opened it up later on and noticed a nice creamy peanut butter, with the oil seperation very minimal if any since refrigeration. I took some off a spoon and tasted it.

I would say this peanut butter has some pros and cons. I liked that it wasn’t too salty or too sweet, and had a pretty good peanut butter flavor. I liked that it was higher in fiber and protein than traditional peanut butter, and had omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. I also kind of liked the little bit of crunch that the flaxseeds provided, almost like a crunchy peanut butter.

But…

I didn’t really like the flaxseed flavor that was quite noticeable. I’m the type of person who likes to eat peanut butter straight from the jar, and while this peanut butter is good, I don’t think I’ll be eating it off of a spoon.  However, I did spread it on a chocolate muffin, and it was TASTY! I couldn’t really detect the flax seed flavor at all.

Overall, 3 stars by itself, 4 stars spread on something, brings this to a 3 1/2 overall. I think I’ll stick to the Organic Naturally More Peanut Butter for spoon and jar peanut butter consumption 😛

2 tbsp. is 169 calories, 11 grams of fat, 8 grams of carbohydrates, 4 grams of fiber, 2 grams of sugar and 10 grams of protein.

Organic Naturally More Peanut Butter

Author: Healthnuttxo

Calling all Peanut Butter Lovers… you are definitely going to enjoy this post! 😉

Naturally More is a brand that makes both peanut butter and almond butter, but better. They make “What Peanut Butter/Almond Butter Should Be!”, meaning these nut butters are enhanced with special goodies to keep you healthy, but at the same time are still all natural and delicious.

For the Organic Naturally More peanut butter, it is higher in protein, higher in fiber, and lower in fat than standard peanut butter. It also contains no trans fats, is fortified with flaxseed and flax oil, and has no other additives. I was super excited when I recieved this in the mail from Naturally More as we all know how much I adore peanut butter- this one HAD to be a winner!

And it sooooooo is! When you open the jar, the oil is on top, so I reccommend stirring it the day before you actually want to try it and letting it sit in the fridge for a bit. The next day, I took out my jar and was happy to see it was a bit stiffer, not as runny, but still having that ooey-gooey peanut butter consistency 🙂

Honestly- the company had me fooled. Tastes like good ol’ peanut butter to me. Creamy and just slightly sweet, it has a nice, peanutty flavor. Perfect for PB&J’s, peanut butter & bananas, and one of my favorites, spread of a slice of organic chocolate cake (*drool*). What is different about this peanut butter is that there are itty-bitty flaxseeds in it, so it has a bit of crunch to it. Different-yes. Weird- a little, but I liked it. It was sort of like eating crunchy peanut butter, but without the HUGE peanut chunks.

Overall, I give this peanut buttah’ 5 stars. I love that it’s organic, high in fiber & protein, and even lower in fat & calories than regular peanut butter. Absolutely delicious, and it is now in rotation with my other favorite plain peanut butter, Smuckers All Natural Peanut Butter. I have over 30 jars of nut butters at my house, but sometimes I just want good ol’ PEANUT BUTTER- no iffs, ands, or butts. This one is definitely in rotation now!

1 serving (2 tbsp) is 170 calories, 11 grams of fat, 8 carbohydrates, 4 grams of fiber and 9 grams of protein.
