8 Nut Butters + 4 Jams That Will Up Your PB&J Game 100%

Is there anything better than a PB&J? Like the perfect little black dress it’s timeless, can be dressed up or down and, when in doubt, is always the right choice. Here at Mouth HQ we fancy ourselves PB&J Experts, for no other reason than we eat them all the time. With all the nut butters and jams we have floating around, it would be a crime not to. We love a classic pairing, such as chunky (no, smooth!) PB and strawberry jam, but we also love to elevate the eating experience by using more unusual indie-gredients, because, have you met us?

Below, 8 nut butters (and 4 jams, because we’d never dream of breaking up such a good marriage), you need to spread on your bread immediately:

Honeyed Peanut Butter – This creamy peanut butter blended with organic coconut oil, sea salt and honey has a touch of crunch from fresh-roasted peanuts and a distinctive warm sweetness from the honey – super versatile and endlessly addictive.

Vanilla Cashew Nut Butter – This jar of sweet cashew butter with vanilla tastes almost like cake batter (treat yourself) and has a creamy texture perfect for spreading or eating with a spoon.

Organic Creamunchy Peanut – This smooth yet crunchy butter is the one to satisfy everyone, whether they’re on Team Crunchy or Team Creamy. 

Ginger Almond Nut Butter  The chewy bits of ginger dotted throughout this super nutty spread make it our go-to nut butter with a cup of tea. It also makes a fantastic sauce for Asian-style shrimp and chicken skewers. 

Szechuan Peanut Butter  Fill up a celery stalk to create a very adult "ants on a log" or go crazy and spoon onto vanilla ice cream.

Peanut Cocoa Butter – Is it a treat we feel good about, or an energy-packed snack that feels delightfully indulgent? We're not sure, but either way, we're pretty sure we need a jar handy at all times. 

Peanut Butter Marshmallow Fluffernutter  This is more of a warning: Slathering on pancakes, swirling into oatmeal or spreading on plain ol’ toast will have you instantly obsessed. We also completely support eating this sticky stuff straight out of the jar.

Roasted Peanut Butter – This creamy, roasty peanut butter is meant to be spread on everything – from sliced apples to sliced baguette, whole bananas to brownie wedges. Spoon and spoon again when you need a desk-ready pick-me-up.

Seascape Strawberry Jam  One spoonful of this glorious spread and we were taken right back to our first memory of sun-warmed fruit slathered on fluffy white bread (or whole grain, if you had those kinds of parents).

Drunken Monkey Banana Rum Jam  This slightly chunky jam takes our favorite sandwich to a whole other level. Sugar-coated bananas with a splash of rum and a dash of lime are intensely delicious – bananas at their best. 

Peach Sriracha Jam  Baste grilled chicken with jam for a delicious spicy-sweet glaze. Spread on toasted baguette and top with aged goat cheese for a fun-yet-fancy snack.  

Marionberry Espresso Jam  As unusual as this flavor sounds, it's actually a match made in heaven. The Marionberry, an elongated blackberry cross, has a deep, rich flavor that is actually enhanced by the espresso in this lovely not-too-sweet jam.
