We are such fans of nut butter. Creamy, smooth, and nutritious, nut butters are often valuable sources of protein and fiber and can be relied on to transform plenty of ingredients into decadent, heart-healthy treats.
While there are many vegan nut and seed butters out on the market these days, many of them are still chock full of refined sugars and processed ingredients, making them a poorer option than the organic spreads available. From your classic peanut butter to more adventurous spreads, we’ve searched through Amazon to find 15 different organic nut, seed, and soybean butters that are sure to satisfy both your taste-buds and your body — all plant-based, of course! Check out our picks below.
