Peanut butters are not just for kids’ sandwiches. There are also other nut spreads on the market today that adults will want to have in their own personal stash. Forget those boring brands readily available on store shelves, these spreads will have you reaching for that slice of bread or spoon, or even use in a stir-fry.
Saratoga Peanut Butter Company boasts an eclectic variety of butters combined with other quality ingredients like raisins, banana, flax seed, cranberries, dark chocolate, and more. The result: popular aromatic lumpy chunky nut spreads enjoyed by celeb chefs and families nationwide. http://www.yopeanut.com
Barney Butter is all-natural almond butter minus the gritty texture and bitter bite. This is a surprisingly good alternative to peanut butter with a satisfying slightly salty sweet combo taste. Made from premium California almonds, it is available in smooth and crunchy versions and in convenient squeezable snack packs. http://www.barneybutter.com
Tierra Farm offers an extensive line of nut butters that includes peanuts, almonds, cashews, and hazelnuts combined with other tasty sweet ingredients like maple and chocolate that don’t overpower. The spreads are thick and so delectable to eat. Nuts are dry roasted, baked in ovens, crushed, and that’s all. http://www.tierrafarm.com
