Can You Compost Peanut Butter?

Peanut butter can be composted since it’s made of organic matter but we would advise against it, especially for people who maintain small compost heaps at home.

Peanut butter can be troublesome for a number of reasons. First, the smell of peanut butter can easily attract unwanted pests and rodents. Second, peanut butter has a lot of fat, which can take time to break down. You should only add a small amount of peanut butter if you do plan on using it in the compost heap.
