Peanuts have a mold called aflotoxin that has been studied as a possible carcinogen but darn they are so yummy! If you have a sensitivity or allergy to peanuts then this Keto Peanut Butter Cookie also works with almond butter.
Peanuts are technically a legume that contain lectins and phytates and cause digestive irritation.
Traditionally, people soaked and sprouted beans, nuts, and seeds to reduce hard to digest
properties but that has fallen out of fashion in our fast-paced culture. You can easily soak
your peanut or almonds overnight then grind them to reduce anti-nutrients before making your own nut butters.
