Healthy Peanut Butter

At last a great tasting healthy peanut butter....welcome to Oh Mega. Crede Natural Oils asked me to review their new Peanut Butter range:

  • Enriched with omega-3 flaxseed oil
  • No salt and no hydrogenated fats
  • Sweetened with honey
  • Available in smooth and crunchy
Peanut Butter is loved by both adults and children alike, but due to the high sugar, salt and hydrogenated fat content not something that I have recommended as a sandwich filler until now.

To review the products I called in the lunchbox specialists.....equipped them with jars of both the smooth and crunchy butter and told them to tuck in and give me their verdict.

VOILA! Lots of laughter, fun and tastebud tickling followed. Neither of the girls have been part of a product review before and were quite keen to have themselves heard.

Both of them liked the crunchy... I however, prefer the smooth, don't like juggling bits of nuts on my sandwich. I was expecting a rather bitter flaxseed taste, but Crede has somehow managed to mask the bitter flavour.

One can only pack so many PB & Jelly sandwiches, but with a house filled with Oh Mega jars I sat down and filtered through some of my older posts to compile this list of Peanut Butter Ideas.
