Happy National Peanut Butter Day—an observance day we can really dip our spoon into!

Peanut butter has evolved over the years from traditional creamy or crunchy options to drool-worthy varieties, including all-natural recipes and other nut butters like almond or cashew.

And you can indulge without feeling guilty! Peanut butter is packed with filling protein, heart-healthy fats, and it might even help save your memory. Add it to desserts, find it in your favorite snack bar (we love KIND’s Dark Chocolate and Peanut Butter), or simply spread it on a celery stick.
