MyProtein Peanut Butter Overview

myprotein peanut butter reviewMyProtein Peanut Butter is a 100% natural nut butter, made from (you guessed it) peanuts. It’s a no sugar peanut butter, available in both smooth and crunchy tubs.

If you’re used to buying crappy super-market brand peanut butters, then you’re in for a massive treat when trying this MyProtein Peanut Butter.

The first thing you’ll notice when you open a tub, is how an oily/liquid surface will be lying like a puddle at the top of the tub. Don’t panic, this means you’ve got some seriously good shit on your hands.

100% natural peanut butter forms this liquid, as its the natural oils from the nuts that separate. Simply stick your spoon in there, give it a mix round and you’re good to go.

What makes MyProtein’s Peanut Butter natural though? Take a look at the ingredients list:

Ingredients

100% Peanuts Wholeskin On

Im glad that Myprotein doesn’t let  their nuts go in, without a skin. Compare this with many supermarket brands. The majority will not contain 100% peanuts.

Many popular supermarket brands, sunpat, skippy and whole earth will contain stabilisers, e numbers, sugars and other things.

There is no need for these ingredients to be in a regular peanut butter, especially when MyProtein’s Peanut Butter (100% natural) tastes better than them all.

Nutrition

Because this is a natural peanut butter, it has an excellent nutritional profile.

Per 100g:
579 Calories
Protein 29.6g
Carbs 11.6g
Fat 46g

The carbs aren’t artifical sugars, they are the natural carbs that are contained within the peanuts. Before you freak out about the fat content, remember what peanut butter is made out of….NUTS.

Nuts are high in good fats. This mean’s we need them as part of our diet. A spoonful of this (or 2) a day and you’re set.

Just like anything in life though, there is such a thing as too much of a good thing. Remember your maro’s when you plunge your spoon into this tub. Its so easy to go Jesse Pinkman on this tub and get addicted.

Taste & Texture

I pitty the fool who ain’t never tried natural peanut butter!

If all you’re used to is the regular supermarket peanut butter, you’re going to kick yourself for not trying this sooner.

Quite often ‘healthier’ alternatives don’t taste as good as the real thing. This isn’t the case with peanut butter. In our Nuts N More Review, we covered how awesome their range of flavours are. Well MyProtein only offers 1 flavour of their peanut butter, but they do it well.

I can’t describe it as anything other than a nut-roast of awesomeness just splurging into your mouth.

I don’t know anyone, who after trying a natural peanut butter, would prefer going back to a regular supermarket brand.

It would be like winning the lottery, and then going to work for minimum wage. Not cool.

The texture of this peanut butter varies on how much you mix it. At the bottom of the tub, it is very dry and almost hard, whilst at the top its a runny mess. This is due to the nut oils separating.

You will need to give the tub a quick stir up each time you open it for a serving. When mixed properly, the whole thing is smooth, and slightly runny. Enough so that if you turn your spoon upside down it would slowly fall off.

MyProtein Peanut Butter comes in smooth and crunchy. I’ve had both, however my personal favourite is smooth. Im not sure why, as both are awesome. Both are identical, apart from the crunch containg chunks of peanuts.

Benefits Of MyProtein Peanut Butter

Whether you’re looking to bulk or cut, you need healthy fats in your diet.

For me, nut butters, such as Nuts n More High Protein Peanut butter, and MyProtein Peanut Butter are the tastiest , and most enjoyable way’s to do this. I may be a little be bias though, as im a self confessed peanut butter addict. I love reeses peanut butter cups, quest peanut butter cups, reeses pieces, pretty much anything covered or containing peanut butter, I enjoy.

The (slight) problem with nuts n more however, is that sometimes I hit my protein intake fairly easy. On days where supplementing additional protein isn’t a problem, then a natural peanut butter such as MyProtein’s Peanut Butter is the way to go.

If you’re a skinny teen, and looking to gain weight, then you can do the following with MyProtein’s Peanut Butter:

  • Pile it onto sandwhiches
  • Throw it in shakes
  • Spoon it straight out of the tub
  • Mix it with yoghurt & fruit
  • Mix it into your porridge
  • Add it onto anything. Because everything is better with peanut butter.
  • Bulk like the hulk

‘Clean Bulking’ never tasted so damn good.

When you’re cutting, or if you’re following  a lower fat diet, then you need to be more conservative with your use of it.

The good thing about peanut butter is that its so filling. Just a spoon of this will likely keep you full until your next big meal. Because MyProtein Peanut Butter is a natural peanut butter, containing no crap and no artifical sugars, it means you’re getting nothing but natural, squeaky clean calories. Perfect for bulking or cutting.

Value

As is the case with all MyProtein Supplements, you can get their peanut butter for … wait for it… peanuts!

That there pun.

1kg of MyProtein Peanut Butter is just £5.99. That is a crazy cheap price!

Consider that a tub of sunpat will run you around 2-3 quid for maybe 300 odd grams? Get MyProtein’s Peanut Butter for an even cheaper price using a My Protein Discount Code.

Remember how I said that no one I know who has tried this has gone back to a normal supermarket brand? That’s because the supermarkets overcharge for their sub-standard peanut butter to!

If you’re someone looking to bulk up on a budget, then Peanut Butter really is the way forward.

The Bottom Line

I wish there was a rhyme as cool as ‘once you go black, you never go back’ that incorporated MyProtein’s Peanut butter, but there just isn’t.

So i’ll have to just say, once you try natural peanut butter, you won’t go back (see – no where near as cool!)

For £5.99 (even cheaper or sometimes free when you use a Myprotein voucher code) you can grab a 1kg tub of the best tasting gains you’ve ever had.

Spread it on bread. Spoon it out the tub. Or just lavish it all over your partners body and lick it off. Ounce by ounce. (That might just be me).

This 100% natural peanut butter is one of the healthiest, tastiest, and most affordable sources of good nutrition you can find. Even if you’re not into fitness or working out, but love peanut butter, then this is for you as it tastes so damn good.
