As a peanut butter fanatic and, dare I say connoisseur, I have sampled my fair share of peanut and other nut butters. There are a few things I look for in a prospective jar of nuttiness. Less is always more, referring to ingredients, not jar size of course.

The shorter the ingredient list the better. Ideally 100% nuts is my recommendation, cutting out any sneaky sugars or palm oils, which often creep into nut-filled spreads. Added salt, perhaps a lesser of evils, is also a frequent feature on the ingredient list. Keep an eye out, if this is something you or the receiver is trying to avoid.

Below are a selection of delicious recommendations available to bag in Ireland, UK and Germany.

Twisted Nut (DE) – Dark Roast Peanut Butter

This one came highly recommended from a dear friend, and they sure know their butt from nut. This is so good you really only bother purchasing by the kilo.

KoRo (DE) – Brown Almond Butter

For those in the healthy-snack-know, KoRo needs no introduction. If unacquainted with the Berlin-based snack purveyors, I have the great pleasure of introducing you to their tasty bites, and this, their outrageously delicious brown almond butter. You’re welcome.

Monki (IE & DE) – Crunchy Organic Peanut Butter

Initially attracted by the vibey branding, the taste also packs a crunchy nutty punch. Can recommend.

Harry’s Nut Butters (IE) – Extra Hot Peanut Butter

Firstly, the illustrations and mega fun branding make these, undeniably, the cutest looking jars on the block. Then they serve with their exciting array of flavours. Splash out with this spicy peanut butter, which not only makes for a great spread but also a fab addition to a curry or stir-fry. Yummmy.

Meridian (IE & UK) – Cocoa & Hazelnut Butter

I know we started with the healthy bits, but this can’t go unmentioned. For something on the sweet treat side, this is so good, you’ll almost never want to eat a refined-sugar loaded chocolate bar again. Just a spoonful of this glory and you’re hit with a chocolatey hazel-nutty fix. Enjoy responsibly.

As they say, you are what you eat. Go enjoy all that goodness, and gift a nut butter, you buttery nutters 🙂
