What American doesn’t love peanut butter? We eat it on bread, toast, in a sandwich, with bananas, with chocolate, with a spoon, and the list could go on and on. My household loves peanut butter and we don’t even have kids.
The problem is, if you are trying to lose weight, peanut butter is not very healthy. It is full of fat and calories. But, now, there is an alternative.
While shopping at Trader Joes the other night, we picked up some Better’n Peanut Butter. I was skeptical but willing to give it a try because it was so much healthier. It has 85% less fat and 40% fewer calories than regular peanut butter. It also has no trans-fats, no preservatives, no cholesterol, and no refined sugar. One tablespoon of regular peanut butter will cost you 3 Weight Watchers Points Plus. One tablespoon of Better’N Peanut Butter will only cost you one WW points plus.
So, I know what you are thinking, “With all those “NO’s” above, I bet the taste is a big “NO.” Well, you are wrong. I love it! It is different than regular peanut butter but I think it is delicious. It is sweeter than regular peanut butter and has a somewhat different texture than regular peanut butter. We eat it on anything you would normally eat peanut butter on. I think it is delicious and with the WW Points Plus difference, it is a keeper!
