A good, CRUNCHY, natural peanut butter



Recommended Posts

Hi all. I've been trying to find a good tasting, easy to stir Peanut Butter that is also crunchy. I only like crunchy! Ideally I want just peanuts and salt, and no added sugar or artificial sweeteners. I have tried a few (it's hard to find in natural), but I don't eat it often and it settles after a while and is almost impossible to stir.

I'm using Jif Natural crunchy right now because it's closest to what I want, but it does have added sugar, which I prefer to avoid.

Any suggestions, or tips for stirring natural peanut butter that has settled?

Thanks. I know this is rather long winded for being about peanut butter. Lol

Crazy Richard's makes a good crunchy. Also Smucker's Chunky Natural Peanut Butter.

I know my family can't get with the REAL natural PB's (just nuts (or with salt) in the ingredients) but I've been doing them for so long that I'm used to them and actually crave them over ones with sugar.

We have some grocery store in my area that have nut grinders. Salted or unsalted peanuts, honey roasted peanuts, cashews, almonds. The machine grinds them in to butter. It’s a finer texture than jif crunchy, but so good! And nothing but the nuts.

I prefer the real natural ones too. I don't like how sweet the ones with sugar taste!

Ohhh what a good idea! Then I could make it as I need it so it doesn't sit around forever. Thank you!!

Most big grocery stores have nut grinders. Not sure which stores are in your area but check Whole Foods or Fresh Market. Today I got fresh cashew butter and it is so delicious. Almond butter is great too

My mom and I like crazy richard's as well. You only have to stir it the first time you open it, but it does take some effort. I find shaking the jar like crazy (before you open it!) helps it be easier to stir.

      How's everyone doing? I'm still fighting insurance company over plastics.
      Many changes at work are coming up. It's very stressful but there are also some opportunities involved, both in regards to personal development and promotion.

        I didn't think insurance was even possible for plastics? I figured it would all be out of pocket?
