Everything you need to know about why we love peanut butter
Natural peanut butter, made from only ground peanuts without any added oils or sugars, is a nutrient-dense food with several health benefits.
Peanuts are in fact legumes, rather than nuts, and are packed with nutrients including monounsaturated fats, protein, fibre, vitamins B1 (thiamine), B3 (niacin) and B9 (folic acid); vitamin E and anti-oxidants.
This combination of nutrients makes peanuts very beneficial for heart health as well as protective against cancer, supported by published studies. Niacin rich foods are also beneficial for brain health, improving mood and helping to prevent cognitive decline.
As with all foods, quality is important. This is perhaps even more true of peanuts due to their susceptibility to aflatoxin (a dangerous mould). Therefore ensure peanuts are always fresh and preferably organic.
Note: Although peanuts are healthy for many people, it is important to recognise that they are one of the foods implicated in serious food allergies and would be wise to advise guests when using in recipes.
- Combine all ingredients (except peanut butter) in a blender, blend until the mixture becomes sticky.
- Transfer to a bowl and refrigerate for 5 minutes or so.
- Press into Easter egg moulds and use your thumb or the back of a spoon to create an indent.
- Spoon a small amount of peanut butter into the centre and refrigerate for 20-30 minutes.
- Press two halves together and use your hands to gently mould together to create an Easter egg shape.
- Keep in the fridge. Enjoy!
