Thanks! I guess I'll stir it in and give it a try!

Mix it in. If you want natural PB but you don't like the oil separation, sometimes health food stores like Whole Foods have peanut butter machines. You can get fresh ground peanut butter, as much or little as you like.

You have to stir it in. If you pour it off you have dry peanut butter that isn't spreadable. It's a good fat as long as you watch the portion size.

I stir it in my almond butter, healthy fat is necessary!

As far as I know, that is the natural oil that is in the peanuts, which is also known as a GOOD fat, which is beneficial to any diet. Taking the oil out just eliminates the good fat. I believe I'm right on this. I hope so.

When you buy a jar of natural peanut butter (or almond butter, or tahini, or whatever) and the fat/oil has separated and is at the top of the jar, do you stir it in or pour it off? Does pouring it off save you calories, or is better to stir it in -- are those healthy fats? I always wondered what's best -- seeing all that sitting on top of my food skeeves me out a little. :) Thanks!
