      Actually natural peanut butter is just peanuts crushed I normally buy mine from Whole foods with no added sugar or oils just crushed peanuts but you can use almond or sunflower etc... butters which may lower the calories and fats.

      Is natural peanut butter lower in calories than regular peanut butter? I'm surprised this is considered healthy.
