Peanut butter is a super food for a number of reasons. Sandwich, cookie, or straight off the spoon peanut butter is a very versatile food. It can be a meal, a dessert, or a snack. It is a high protein food yet despite this has no cholesterol. To top it off peanut butter can store at room temperature for several months without going bad. I love the stuff and adore the cookies made from it. They are absolutely positively yummy.
