Lisa asks: What's your favorite brand of natural peanut butter?

How about the peanut butter you grind yourself in the store from fresh peanuts? That seems to be the best alternative to anything already in a jar.

I love peanut butter. My favorite brand is Peanut Butter& Co. They have a great selection of gluten free products. I like to add peanut butter to smoothies, cookies and more. Great read!

A great alternative would be almond butter, good protein and healthy fats

I don't like the plastic containers and always look for glass jars. I'll have to check out your recommendations. I'm wondering why the tried-and-true Adams Natural Organic Creamy didn't make your list? It's our fav.

Great article about PB but please don't recommend palm oil as a better choice. Vast areas of pristine rainforest is slashed and burned each year in order to make way for oil palm plantations. Many orangutans and other wildlife are killed in the process, This large-scale deforestation is pushing orangutans to extinction,

I buy Smucker's natural peanut butter fully loaded and then pour out some of the oil to reduce the fat content before I stir it up (their reduced fat has an added ingredient).

My favorite nut butters are the ones I grind myself at the natural foods store.
