The Benefits of Nut Butter

But I never really thought too much about the benefits that nuts and butter made from nuts offers! I mean, I knew there was lots of protein and some good fats in there, but that’s about it.

Nut butters are becoming a new staple in grocery stores aisles across the world. Even in Asia, almond butter fans can easily find 100% almond nut butter brands such as Eatnuf Singapore on the shelves. They stock seriously delicious almond and cashew nut butters with no added salt or sugar. We can expect more variations of nut butters as consumers seek out different health benefits and flavors from their favorite breakfast spreads.

Now I really feel the need to make some cashew butter, don’t you?! I love these ideas!

  1. Of all the allergies to different foods I had as a child and have thankfully outgrown O was never allergic to nuts of any kind. What I didn’t know was how good they really are for you–help with lowering blood sugar? Guess who is going to try this out.

  2. I’ve always wanted to make my own nut butter – I’ve never met a nut butter that I didn’t like. I love making smoothies with peanut butter, almond milk and frozen bananas. I love all the health benefits of eating nut butters.

  3. We love nut butters! I personally love almond butter but I recently tried cashew butter and really loved the taste!

  4. I LOVE Almond butter and would love to try making it at some point! I’ve never tried Walnut butter and that definitely sound interesting. Thanks for sharing as I could probably save a ton of money by making these at home!

  5. Nut butter is on my to try list. Have the nuts, just didn’t have an easy recipe. Now I have no excuse. Love the muffin recipe. Can’t wait to try that as well.

  6. Beautiful and very useful infographic! I don’t think I appreciated nut butter enough. There’s so much to make with it and a solid nutritional value as long as it’s consumed in proper amounts.

  7. Almond butter sounds good. I like almonds but not a big fan of peanuts or peanut butter so maybe I’ll give that a try. Great post to show the benefits of each one. I now know there are more option out there for me.

  8. The only problem with nut butters = so addicting and if they’re not all natural (and ground at the store) a lot of packaged varieties include filler ingredients that are not healthy!
