Healthy peanut butter is not just limited to the sole organics aisle in your local supermarket. Or your local zero waste store.
There are more than a handful of Malaysian artisan spread creators with selections and flavors that you have never imagined! Including no sugar peanut butter!
So as much as we love our Skippy peanut butter, sometimes we just want a different taste! If you feel the same way, check out these local peanut butter and artisan spread brands in Malaysia!
Those on the hunt for a peanut butter diet brand in Malaysia, can check out Cavenut. Their quality butters are some of the most affordable too.
All of their peanut butters are free from sugar and salt. They have a dark chocolate flavor if you feel like having the occasional self-indulging moment!
Because of the way they produce their peanut butter without any added oil, refined sugar or preservatives:
Their products are compatible with those on specified diets (e.g. paleo, keto, vegan, etc). And they have even donated some peanut butter to a dog charity before!
At the moment though, they don’t have as many nut butters as other artisan spread brands in Malaysia. Having only started their peanut butter sales in late 2019, they are still fairly new!

Yet another newcomer on the artisan spread scene, Nuttyland began in 2018. Not surprisingly, its founder, Yuh Jiun is a self-confessed peanut butter lover, as well as a food addict!
But being health conscious, led Yuh Jian to create her own peanut butter brand in Malaysia!
Which reflects in the selection of peanut butter available on Nuttyland:
There are sugar and salt-free options to cater for those on a diet but still want to have their daily dose of peanut butter!
Instead of 2, there are 3 texture variations for the Nuttyland peanut butters – smooth, crumble, or crunchy! With the crunchy version, there are peanut bits while the crumble uses coarsely-crushed peanuts.
You can hop on their Instagram for healthy and decadent breakfast inspiration ideas that incorporate their peanut butter!
