Almond Or Cashew Butters?

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking about switching us over from peanut butter to almond butter or some other alternative. My kids, 2 and 4, like peanut butter, but I worry about them having traces of peanut butter on their hands when they're around other kids. (There are a couple kids at my daughter's preschool with peanut allergies.)

We've just been eating peanut butter on days when we're not going to be around other kids, but it would be nice to not have to worry about it.

Are there any alternative nut butters that are popular with the preschool crowd? Or any really gross ones I should stay away from?

Thanks,

Nancy

Thank you! You know it's gotta be good if it's offered in the larger containers.

:D

Walnut Butter and Cashew Butter and Pecan Butter from ARTISANA. IT'S RAW, which is important, and it is entirely peamut, gluten, and dairy free. I think the Walnut one is FANTASTIC. They are not cheap, though.

I'll add a second nod to maranatha. I love their almond butter and they do make a raw version. When I need a quick snack I put a scoop of it in a dish and eat with a spoon. yummy! On days I juice fruits (not very often at all because of blood sugar) I put a big spoonful of almond butter in the blender with the juices. It adds protein so the sugar doesn't destroy me.
