Be sure to check out the ingredients and make sure your peanut butter only has “peanuts” and salt (preferably just peanuts). Most popular brands have sugar, high fructose corn syrup, and hydrogenated oil. When these are added, peanut butter goes from being a whole, plant-based food to a highly processed food.

There are a few good options available where you can avoid all the crazy ingredients. Smuckers natural peanut butter contains just peanuts and a tad bit of salt. Kroger brand also has a natural peanut butter with only peanuts and salt. Most stores also have a machine where you can grind your own peanut butter.

While peanut butter is good on it’s own, the recipe below really cranks up the nutritional value. Always having a batch of this prepared will make it easy to add flax and chia seeds to your routine.

Ingredients

  • 1 16 oz. jar peanut butter (no sugar added)
  • 1 cup ground flax seed
  • 1/2 cup chia seeds

Instructions

  • Pour peanut butter into a bowl and add flax and chia seeds. Stir with a rubber spatula until all ingredients are combined. Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator. 

Notes

Any nut butter can be used in place of peanut butter.
You can make adjustments to the amount of flax and chia based on your texture and taste preference.
Buying the flaxseed whole and grinding it in a coffee grinder right before adding it to your peanut butter will help it retain more of its nutrients. I use this grinder (Electric Coffee Grinder) and it works great!
