5 Things: Almond Butter

Almond Butter is one of my favorite treats. A spoonful of it with some dark chocolate chips and dried cranberries is absolutely divine and, not to mention, satisfying.

  1. 1 tbsp of almond butter contains 95 calories, 8g of healthy fat (this can help to lower LDL cholesterol), no cholesterol, 2g of fiber, and 2.5g of protein.
  2. 2 tbsp of almond butter contains 86 mg of calcium. Your RDI of calcium is 1,000 mg.
  3. Almond butter is a good source or magnesium, Vitamin E, and potassium. It's also a great source of selenium, which has been shown to be effective in preventing cancer.
  4. People who have a peanut allergy can eat almond butter (only if it's processed in a plant that doesn't process peanut products).
  5. To prevent almond butter from going rancid, it should be stored in a cool dry place until it's opened, and then stored in the fridge after that.

We just started eating almond butter not too long ago. It's a little expensive in comparison to peanut butter, so we keep jars of both in the house. AB is so good though. It's almost a little sweet and like a dessert on a piece of toast.

Almond butter is the best! I've got my own version of an "Elvis" - almond butter on whole wheat toast with banana slices on top. Breakfast of champions. Also, if you've got a Trader Joe's around, it's not as expensive at around $6.

I've always wanted to try almond butter, but it is SO expensive. It's hard to justify paying $10+ for it when you get organic natural peanut butter for less than 5 in a bigger size.

I've never heard of this, is it expensive?

amybdk - how about sunflower seed butter or tahini (sesame seed butter?). i feel your pain - i'm allergic to peanuts, soy, and most other legumes (chickpeas, lentils)... thank goodness for not being allergic to tree nuts!

I'm allergic to peanuts AND almonds (however, i can do certain legumes like garbonzo beans and pine nuts...)! SAD! I have had a hard time coming up with any other options. Suggestions, anyone?
