Bonanza is a new UK company producing top class peanut butter products.

Their range includes a high protein peanut butter and a tasty product which is a mix of peanut butter with almond butter – it basically tastes like almond butter but is a lot cheaper (as almonds are ridiculously expensive, it’s cheaper to mix with peanuts).

With no palm oil and no plastic used in the packaging, it’s an ethical product too.

Peanut butter is great when you’re training hard and trying to hit your required daily calories and protein.

It’s also packed full of micronutrients including magnesium and potassium, vitamins e and vitamin b6.

 

Peanut butter is very good for you – if you avoid the brands with sugar, e-numbers and added vegetable oils! 

 

 



 

Peanut butter is also pretty versatile, You can for example, make high protein cookies from them:

Ingredients

  • 200g peanut butter
  • 50g of Stevia or Sugar
  • 1 large egg (beaten)
  • Pinch of salt

 

  • Beat the egg and then mix all the ingredients together.
  • Shape into cookies
  • Place in the oven at 180 degrees Celsius for approximately 10 minutes

Interestingly, peanuts are also high in resveratrol. The phytochemical often associated with red grapes & red wine, it can help to prevent cancer & reduce oxidative stress – which is often high in elite athletes.

See a study-abstract about resveratrol in peanuts here.

Final interesting peanut butter fact…it’s saving millions of lives in Africa.
