Peanut butter

A fatty treat that helps in weight loss!

Peanuts (often also called groundnuts) are the fruit of the plant Arachis hypogaea. They are most commonly classified as a nut, even though they are a legume from a botanical point of view. The origin of the plant reaches back to South America, where it grew wild most likely in Peru (roughly 7,600 years ago).
