Ingredients: Roasted peanut butter (99.3%), salt
What I like about it? It is a good source of unsaturated fat which is good for cardiovascular health. A handful of nuts a day is beneficial and peanut butter is an easy way to get that handful in. (one handful is around 30g so just 2 tablespoons.)
There is no addition such as vegetable oil or added sucrose (sugar) which is as close to what you DIY would get. The roasted flavour is a good addition to a piece of wholegrain sourdough bread in the morning.
What I don't like about it? Nothing really. It is a high energy food and it is very easy to overeat (spoon anyone?)
Would I give them to my children? Yes but they need supervision to avoid eating peanut butter with bread.
