7 Deliciously Non-Traditional Nut Butters We’re Loving Right Now
We're talking Spicy Garlic Peanut Butter and French Toast Pecan Butter.
Our obsession with nut butters is real. Almond, peanut, cashew—no matter the nut, these high-protein spreads are versatile and delicious. And now that they have us hooked, these companies are experimenting with different flavor combinations, allowing us to really enhance not only our sandwich game, but also sweet and savory dishes, too. Here are a few that are worth checking out!
Butterfly Cinnamon Vanilla butter
Butterfly makes a variety of nut butters that spread more like actual butter than the nutty variety. The combination of walnuts, cashews, macadamia nuts and MCT oil is what makes the smooth spread. So, this is our favorite for toast or an English muffin, and a little goes a long way.
Big Spoon Roasters
Big Spoon Fiji Ginger
When a nut butter is made to order, you know it’s going to be good. Headquartered in Durham, NC, this nut butter is all handcrafted with premium ingredients like Jacobsen sea salt and heirloom almonds. We are partial to the Fiji ginger variety, made with crystalized ginger from Fiji, spread on crisp apple slices.
Saratoga Peanut Butter Co
Saratoga Peanut Butter Co Slow Burner Spicy Garlic
Warning! This is not for the faint of heart. When they say slow burn, they mean it. This one is best for your take on cold spicy peanut takeout noodles or to mix into a dish like Pad Thai. The peanut butter is mixed with a hefty dose of Sriracha (see, slow burn) and garlic powder.
Enzo Autumn Spice Almond Butter
We are obsessed with the classic version of this estate grown almond butter, but the fall spice version has us jonesing for changing leaves and cooler temps. Unlike other “spiced” nut butters, this one has no added sugar, instead it’s loaded up with high-quality spices like sweet allspice, new harvest turmeric, buffalo ginger and royal cinnamon from spice purveyor Burlap & Barrel. Spread this one on graham crackers, toast, or stir it into your oatmeal.
Revival Food Co
Revival Super Spread
When I make overnight oats or acai bowls, I like to make sure I am packing in every healthy seed to maximize my morning meal. This almond butter from Revival makes this all the easier by packing them all into one spread. If you like things seedy, this super spread has hemp protein powder plus flax and chia seeds making it rich with the good stuff in just one dollop.
Ground Up Cinnamon Snickerdoodle
We always love a brand with a positive mission, especially when their product is also amazing. This Portland, OR brand employs women who have faced hardship, giving them on-the-job training and mentorship. These women make amazing nut butters, like the Cinnamon Snickerdoodle with almond and cashew butter plus coconut butter. The result is something you’ll want to sneak a spoonful of between meetings, spread on an apple to channel apple pie vibes, or throw in a smoothie.
Abby's Better Nut Butter
Abby’s Better Butter French Toast Pecan Butter
We are well-versed in peanut and almond butters but were intrigued by pecan butter. This version is paired with a little bit of maple and cinnamon making it reminiscent of a delicious bite of French toast. You can skip the syrup and spread it on your French toast or plain toast, or even a banana for a treat.
