No Nuts Here! 4 Delicious Nut-Free Butters

No Nuts Here! 4 Delicious Nut-Free Butters

Nut butters are a delicious, satisfying, and nutrient-packed addition to sandwiches, smoothies, home-made energy bars, rice cakes, and raw desserts, among other tasty uses. But for many people, nuts simply aren’t an option.

Whether someone in your family has a nut allergy, your child’s school has banned peanut and tree-nut containing products, or you’re simply seeking to expand your repertoire of spreads, “not-nut butters” are an excellent choice! Not just an alternative or a substitute, these nut-free spreads are delicious in their own right.

Here are 4 tasty and widely available options:

SoyNut Butter

Made from roasted soybeans, soynut butter is an excellent alternative to traditional nut-based spreads. It’s also lower in fat and higher in protein than most nut butters, and is also a good source of calcium, iron, and magnesium.

I.M. Healthy makes 8 delicious varieties of soynut butter, including crunchy and creamy versions of their original, chocolate, unsweetened, and honey flavors (the honey variety is vegetarian but not vegan).

Wowbutter comes in crunchy and creamy varieties, and is advertised as tasting just like peanut butter. It is also available in single-serving cups that are great for lunches.

Simple Soynut Butter comes in 5 delicious flavors, including chocolate, cinnamon sugar, sea salt, no salt added, and slightly sweet. All varieties are gluten free, vegan, and organic!

Sunflower Seed Butter

Sunflower seed butter is made from ground sunflower seeds (raw or roasted). It’s a good source of protein, fiber, iron, and vitamin E, and is completely nut- and gluten-free. For brand options, Sunbutter makes crunchy, creamy, organic, and no-stir varieties of their popular spread, while Once Again makes a creamy, organic variety.

Pumpkin Seed Butter

Made of ground pumpkin seeds, pumpkin seed butter is a great source of iron, zinc, potassium and protein. It has a rich flavor that pairs well with breads, crackers, raw vegetables, and savory snacks. Try Omega Nutrition‘s creamy, organic variety.

Pea Butter

Pea butter is a unique and delicious alternative to nut-based spreads! Made from brown peas, it’s also a good source of protein, fiber, and iron. Manufactured by a Canadian company called Mountain Meadows, No Nuts Golden Peabutter comes in a gluten free creamy variety.
