Peanut butter is both delicious and nutritious. Just 100 grams of peanut butter contains 45% of the daily value of vitamin E. Peanut butter is made up mostly of monosaturated fat with 20% saturated fat. Contrary to past claims, it has not been proven that saturated fat consumption leads to cardiovascular disease.

For a legume, peanuts contain the highest amounts of CoQ10, a nutrient which plays a role in energy metabolism.
