I love both almond and peanut butters. I haven't tried any of the others.
When I buy them I grind my own at the grocery store. I love that I can do that because I can buy tiny amounts.

Love them all but plain crunchy natural peanut butter is the best.

I love Trader Joe's almond butter with toasted flax seeds! I measure out a tablespoon onto whole wheat toast for breakfast. Measuring it makes it last longer.

I love almond butter. To me, it tastes a little richer than peanut butter. When I have it on toast, I feel like I'm eating something very special.

peanut butter. I love nuts especially peanuts, walnuts, macadamia nuts.

I like Almond over peanut butter since it has omega 3s and Peanut butter is high in omega 6s. it's said our diet in general is over high in omega 6s compared to omega 3s and beside the carbs are lower in almonds over peanuts.

I used to make my own in the blender, and I've made peanut butter, and cashew.

I think I might have made sunflower butter or sesame butter (tahini) at some point but I haven't done it in years.

I like both Almond butter and Peanut butter, haven't tried the Cashew or Sunflower Seed butter though. I used to use the Better 'n Peanut Butter but with all the additives decided I preferred natural peanut butter, I just eat less of it.

I'm a tie for Peanuts vs Almonds even when it comes to peanutbutter vs almondbutter. If I'm just eating from package I'd take Cashews over sunflower seeds. But If adding to a food then its sunflower seeds as I like to add them to salads, steamed veggies and also a topping on yogarts

Natural Peanut Butter which is only p-butter and salt is my favorite. No sugar! I tried Sunflower Butter once which to me was an acquired taste. By the end of the jar, I liked it.

Peanut or almond? Cashew or sunflower seed? What are your favorites? :)

P-nut butter is still my favorite,I tried almond and was not too fond of it. I finally gave the jar to my daughter. Have not tried cashew or sunflower seed. If we are talking just nuts, my favorite are sunflower seeds. Can't eat peanuts because they make me break out but I have no problems with peanut butter,kinda odd.

I use Kirkland Organic Peanut Butter from Costco -- ingredients: Peanuts & Salt -- it's VERY LOW sodium!!

Tried their Almond Butter once -- but didn't like it -- might try to make my own like another poster suggested!!

Gotta watch ALOT of those nut butters -- MANY of them are made with alot of EXTRA ingredients -- like sugar!! Read the label of Nutella...!! In a serving: 22 grams of carbs -- 21 grams of which are SUGAR... And if you try to find the INGREDIENTS list on their website (not the "nutrition facts label") you can't find it as it appears on the jar -- which lists the "main" ingredient first......All you find is their writing/info that says it's made of a "combination of...." I haven't ever tried it, but it's no WONDER it's so good...!!

I've also heard of people on Spark using "Better N Peanut Butter" and recommending it.... I was interested in it -- so found their website and was taken back when I read the ingredients...

From www.betternpeanutbutter.com/nutritio

"Ingredients: PEANUTS (AS DEFATTED PEANUT FLOUR AND NATURAL PEANUT BUTTER), TAPIOCA SYRUP, PURE WATER, DEHYDRATED CANE JUICE, RICE SYRUP, VEGETABLE GLYCERIN, SOY FLOUR, SALT, TAPIOCA STARCH, NATURAL FOOD FLAVORS, PAPRIKA & ANNATO, CALCIUM CARBONATE, LECITHIN, VITAMINS E & C (ANTIOXIDANTS).

It MIGHT have less fat and fewer calories but holy smokes!!

My favorite is Cashew Butter. The natural ones need to be stirred. I also found that if I leave it on the counter and turn the jar over every other day then the oils stay mixed up better.
Try it , you'll like the change.

Almond butter is by far my favorite. You can make your own by blending almonds in the food processor until it reaches a butter consistensy. Might be an idea to try some different nut butters in small batches without spending a lot of money on whole jars.

I haven't tried the nut butters except for, of course, peanut butter. I guess I am kind of afraid to. I wish it came in sample size jars so a person could try it to see if they like it.
