The delicious alternatives to peanut butter

While we all love the sweet and salty taste of peanut butter, it’s not exactly the healthiest treat out there. Thankfully, there are some healthier and just as delicious nut butters that can easily be used as an alternative.

Almond Butter
Almond butter is probably the most popular nut butter alternative. This is mostly due to the similar taste to peanut butter and of course, being healthier.

Walnut Butter
Doesn’t look as appetising as its counterparts, but it’s still a delicious spread that can be used for various lunchtime snacks.

Hazelnut butter
Basically the healthier version of Nutella. Yes, there may be no chocolate, but it’s still sweet and of course a lot healthier too.

Cashew Butter
Sweet, addictive and can be the perfect mid-morning snack.

Macadamia Nut Butter
More ideal for desserts and can be great as side dip for fruits. Mmm…delicious.

Brazil Nut Butter
Salty and crunchy, but still a perfect spread for that lunchtime treat.

Pecan Butter
Very sweet and even more delicious when spread over a slice of homemade brown bread.

Sunflower Seed Butter
This is technically not a nut, but in reality, neither is the Brazil Nut! However, sunflower seed butter is still probably the mostly healthy spread on this list. Not only is it low in calories, but it’s perfect for those who have an allergy to nuts and is delicious too.
