Peanuts and peanut butter are often used in bulking diets. Most of the fat is good fat, so don't worry too much about it. Just be aware that half the weight of a peanut is fat, and only a quarter is protein. I use them to add fats to a meal that wouldn't otherwise have enough (eg, a protein shake), and treat the extra protein as a bonus. Think of them as a fat source, not a protein source, and you'll be fine. :)

Peanuts aren't too bad however it is best to use a slection of nuts as there are other benefits to them other than just the fats - some other good nuts to eat are almonds, walnuts, cashews, and brazil nuts. Best to stick with raw - as in unroasted - as the roasting may damage some of the efa's as well as trigger any nut allergies (the alteration of the protein structure through roasting has been theorised to be the cause for nut allergies), and go for unsalted as well.

Avocado's are really good as well - however just don't eat too much as they have around 40 odd grams of fat in each one - almost 400cals.
