I don't think so, every time I have it, it is on apples so it gives me the grumblies, but I'm sure it's the apple skin.

Yes, as long as it's smooth. I love it on apples, but I take the skin off and cut the apple in pieces. Makes it a lot easier anyway. And I make sure the peanut butter is organic.

Yep, on bread or in a smoothie with banana if I'm struggling and wanting extra protein and energy. I only eat the smooth variety, though.

If you want to try it, I'd suggest that you just have a small amount at first and see what happens. Don't have an entire sandwich at once. Treat yourself gently :-)

Apple skin is mostly insoluble fiber, which means it's harder to process.  That's likely where your problems are coming in.  To be sure, try eating the peanut butter with something else and/or the apple without the peel. 
 
I don't have problems with peanut butter in moderate amounts.  But if I get on a kick- eat it two or three times a day for a couple of days- I do.  Of course, that seems to be true with just about any food I crave.

I use to be able to eat the smooth pb, but for some reason it doesn't agree with me anymore.  Man I sure do miss PB&J sandwiches:(

I can eat smooth or crunchy, I've just never been a fan of crunchy, no issues for me with peanut butter.

Tree nuts tend to fare better with me. Almond butter is better than peanut butter in my experience. Pecans are better still.

I am the same as bektold. I can have some here and there. But never more than once a day or a few days back to back. And if I am already flaring I avoid it. But I do love PB and bannana sandwiches. Those of you that like it w/ apples, microwave a spoonful of PB first and it gets more liquidy. Much better for dipping.

OMG-I can't believe I never thought of microwaving it! That sounds like an awesome idea!

I eat two pieces of wheat toast with honey and smooth peanut butter everyday at work :) with tea. It has become a new favorite, and comfort.

Sometime I have PBJ for snacks too :)

I can't eat PB anymore. Which sucks because I am a college student and PB&J is a classis stapple in any students diet.

I can only eat organic pb. Any commercial brand really gives me a tummy ache.

I also only buy organic because it doesn't have any junk added to it and I like to eat healthy, preservatives/msg can be killer on symptoms so I avoid them.

yup,  I love peanut butter and banana sandwiches, with no problems....I think they have actually helped me put on some weight.

Love apples and peanut butter (definitely no apple skin!)  I love pb heated up like Fitzy said, and I add a few tbsp of honey and heat it up. yum.

I have stopped eating it because my naturopath told me that peanut butter is pro inflammatory, but I really miss it. Has anyone else heard of this? I looked on the internet and found quite a few sources that cited peanut butter as being highly inflammatory due to some type of amino acid.
