There’s a delicious surprise when you spread Naturally Moore Peanut Butter ( on your back to school peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Not only is there the authentic taste of freshly roasted peanuts, there is also the rich and crunchy goodness of flaxseeds and flaxseed oils for a boost of omega-3 oils.

Naturally More comes in both creamy spread and chunky (our favorite) and is great for using beyond sandwiches, too! Enjoy it as a dip for sliced apples or carrot sticks, spread on your grilled cheese sandwich for a new taste sensation or blended into chocolate milk for a power-house shake. We also enjoy it straight from the spoon as a snack treat, savoring every bite.
