When it comes to pantry staples, the first item on our list of must-haves is always peanut butter. Whether we’re on our weekly grocery run, preparing for a weekend getaway, or planning ahead in the case of a disaster, our favorite jar (or jars) or peanut butter are never far.

Peanut butter is often thought of solely as a partner to jam and the glue that holds two pieces of bread together to make a sandwich, but it’s much more than that. We love spreading peanut butter on our favorite fruit, including apples and bananas. Heat a small bowl of peanut butter to create a delicious dip or dessert topping. Add some protein to vegetables, like celery, or dress up a dull base, like crackers or rice cakes.

Peanut butter is an excellent source of protein and a delicious way to get both adults and kids to incorporate more fruits and vegetables into their diet. We also love packing peanut butter sandwiches on days when the weather is warm and we don’t have access to a fridge or ice pack. Sweaty deli meats are a friend to no stomach, but peanut butter never lets us down, regardless of the temperatures outside.

The world of peanut butter is vast but we’ve chosen three of our favorite brands that we think you’ll love to dip, spread, and eat straight from the jar as much as we do.
