Peanuts, even though they have the word “nut” in them, are actually not a nut as they grow underground. They along with peas, lentils and beans are legumes. They do however have a few health benefits and taste very good as a nut butter. They are know to be a good source of protein and other essential nutrients and vitamins. They are a good source of monounsaturated fats which help overall cardiovascular function.
