Nut butters are surprisingly good for weight loss — not only do they contain healthy fats, but they are also rich in protein and fiber. A 2 tablespoon serving of peanut butter, for example, has 8 grams of protein and 2 grams of fiber. After a hard workout, it’s important to consume a healthy snack or small meal that contains protein and carbs to replenish glycogen stores and help you build muscle. These seven, simple recipes combine nut butters with healthy sources of carbs such as oats or banana to help you reach your weight-loss goals while building muscle.
