Peanut butter in its plain and simple form is, if you haven’t guessed already, one of my favourite things on the planet. Don’t get me wrong I am game for peanut butter in all manner of goodies and treats but today we are going back to basics with Funky Nut Co. Four Seed Peanut Butter.
I have been following Funky Nut Co. for a while now wondering whether to take the plunge and try one of their nut butters. I am all for supporting small businesses and despite the warning of delays, I was mighty impressed that a couple days after placing my order, it arrived.
There’s quite the array of nut butters ranging from flavoured cashew butters, almond butters, even a pistachio butter. No surprise there is a larger selection of peanut butters to which I opted for a seeded number. With no added nasties and no palm oil, some are even suitable for vegans. Costing £4.00 for this 265g jar it is almost double in price compared to your more generic natural peanut butters available in supermarkets, add postage to this and you are looking at £6.00+, which is pretty absurd.
Jamming no less than 4 seeds – chia, pumpkin, sunflower and flax seeds in there with those peanuts, it’s safe to say this was one seedy peanut butter. Being a crunchy peanut butter I was expecting chunkier peanuts but instead they were pretty micro and the texture and crunch actually came from those seeds. I do forewarn you that I would have a mirror handy to check those nashers afterwards. Tasty straight out the jar and on my toast, the consistency was spot on, not too runny that it’s making a break for it but not too stiff that you may as well be using it to knock up a brick wall. The peanut butter was a little sweeter than I had anticipated and unlike most I have tried which uses plain rather than roasted peanuts, this didn’t have that intense peanut flavouring, which I only assume is partly due to the additional seeds, but also the roasted peanuts.
Natural peanut butter is truly the way forward and I urge all you peanut butter lovers to give it a go if you haven’t already. Although I highly enjoyed this Funky Nut Co. peanut butter I cannot say I would go back every time for this one. I’d certainly give a few others a try but would wait for an offer or at the very least free delivery to make it worthwhile.
What’s your favourite peanut butter? Which do I need in my life?
