It should be obvious by now that The Glucoholic loves peanut butter. Finding an acceptable low sugar option for peanut butter has been a challenge, but we’re glad to share that we think we’ve found the solution – Smart Balance Omega Peanut Butter. This great product looks like real peanut butter, spreads like real peanut butter, and tastes like real peanut butter. Like other natural peanut butters, if it has been on your shelf for a long time some oil might have separated. A quick stir will return this peanut butter to a beautiful creamy texture, just waiting to be enjoyed.
The taste is incredible. It comes in two varieties for those of you who have chosen sides in the “Creamy vs. Crunchy” peanut butter battle, though the “Chunky” variety might be harder to find in stores. Try it however you normally use peanut butter. Our favorite was a classic PB&J made with low sugar jam.
Nutritionally you could not ask much more of a low sugar peanut butter. A serving is 2 tablespoons. Each serving contains 200 calories. For that you will get 17 grams of fat, no cholesterol, 110mg of sodium, 190mg of potassium, 7 grams of protein, and 4 grams of digestible carbohydrate. You’ll also get 1000mg of Omega-3 fatty acids and 1300mg of Omega-6 fatty acids. Pretty impressive!
