Early on in your Paleo journey you probably discovered 2 things, 1- peanuts are not Paleo because 2- peanuts are not nuts! Ok, who named them is what I want to know, but that is for another conversation. If you are looking for a clear and understandable explanation on WHY peanuts and especially peanut butters are not good for your body, check out this article by whole9. I have tried lots of other "butter" alternatives, but somehow missed the Sunbutter. I am looking forward to trying it. See - you learn something new everyday!
