Dan D., a Bodies By Design Trainer, answers the question: is peanut butter a good source of protein? The answer will be a buttery surprise for peanut butter lovers!
As a personal trainer, a lot of our clients ask us how to get protein in their diet. A lot of them seem to think that peanut butter is a good source of protein. I just want to let you know right now that it’s a myth. Typically, peanut butter will have high amounts of saturated fats and oils and is relatively low in protein — typically having about three to four grams per serving, not to mention the added sugar. Now, finally, someone has come up with a solution with an amazing new product called Nuts ‘N More protein enriched peanut butter. It has 14 grams of protein per serving — that’s double the protein! So we can now call peanut butter a source of good high-quality protein — a peanut butter lover’s dream come true!
The new peanut butters and almond butters we have here at Bodies by Design are all-natural, they taste great and they’re not like the other butters you’ve tried before as they’re easy to spread and they’re not chunky. They blend very easily too so it’s great for mixing into shakes. It really is an incredible formula and they come in a variety of delicious flavours. All of them taste amazing and moreover, you’re going to get 14 grams of protein per serving!

P.S., They even have a Chocolate Almond Butter that is to die for!

Nuts ‘N More was founded by fitness and nutrition experts who were looking for fortified, high protein butters and other healthy sources of protein for themselves and their clients. All natural butters can be chunky and hard to spread. Nuts ’N More created a unique recipe for our fortified butters, and a natural process that simply involves crushing the nuts and blending the ingredients in a way that achieves the finest texture of all natural butters.
The result is the products being brought to market now – spreadable and incredibly delicious, all-natural, high protein peanut butters and almond butters that have 14 grams per serving, without any extra calories or fat. Simple and all natural! Nuts ’N More quickly expanded from fortified, high protein peanut butters and almond butters to other varieties such as Cinnamon Almond Raisin – all of which are all natural and fortified with whey isolate protein and flaxseed. …Nuts ‘N More, the original high protein peanut butters and almond butters!
