If you ask me, peanut butter is a star ingredient that elevates everything it touches.

Whether you’re smearing it on toast, spooning it out of the jar, or sneaking it into recipes, peanut butter is that ingredient we just can’t get enough of. 

And if you’ve been searching for more ways to infuse this nutty goodness into your snacks, today’s your lucky day!

I’ve put together a list of my favorite peanut butter Snacks that are scrumptiously addictive but, believe it or not, incredibly healthy.

But before we begin…

Which Peanut Butter Is Healthiest?

Peanut butter is rich in healthy fats, protein, fiber, and minerals. 

But to reap all these health benefits, you need to make sure you only use peanut butter made with 100% peanuts

Most kinds of peanut butter out there use additional sweeteners or vegetable oils that defeat the purpose of indulging in this wholesome snack. 

So always check the ingredients list! 

A clean, single-ingredient peanut butter ensures you’re snacking smart while still satisfying those creamy, nutty cravings.
