As a Keto Coach, I’m often asked if peanut butter is keto friendly. For me, the quick answer is yes, and then that it depends.
Many peanut butters contain added sugars, preservatives, and oils that are not considered keto friendly.
Peanuts themselves, while not the ideal keto nut, is a part of many keto recipes. I use Laura Scudders Old Fashioned, All Natural Smooth peanut butter and buy it in a 6 pack for savings.
Keep an eye on the calories and carb counts to make sure whatever you are eating fits in your macros.
