Peanut butter is the brown spread formed through the fine grinding of peanuts, that is spread on bread, particularly in the United States. It has a high fat content with a reasonable amount of protein. Most commercial peanut butter has added sugar. Typically it is eaten in sandwich form with jam, although it is also eaten with bananas and celery. Common commercial brands in the United States are Skippy and Jif. Similar foods can be made out of other nuts such as hazelnuts and almonds.

Peanut Butter may contain palm oil to help prevent the separation of oil from the solids.

Evangelist Chuck Missler uses peanut butter as a quirky aid to his arguments against the spontaneous generation of life, stating that all the ingredients for life are in peanut butter, yet life doesn't spontaneously form.[1][2]

American women and children prefer creamy peanut butter, while most American men prefer chunky peanut butter.[3]
