I love this stuff on celery and carrot sticks–I take two tablespoons to work in a container and dip the vegetables in for a good-tasting, filling snack. (The brand doesn’t seem to have a sugarless snack pack yet, unfortunately, so it takes a while for those of us who are dishwasher-less to wash the stuff out of the containers, but whatever.) Try it on apples, too. And if you’re wanting an almond butter and jelly sandwich, try pairing it with a low-sugar jelly like Dalfour’s.
It’s usually healthier than peanut butter (see here for a break-down of nutrition information for Barney Butter.) It’s slightly lower in calories, with 7% saturated fat (instead of the 18% normally found in peanut butter) and it contains more fiber and vitamins.
1. The price of almond butter goes up and down, due to the availability of almonds. At the moment I’m writing this, it’s around ten dollars a jar..
2. Though there are many yummy almond butters on the market, many have sugar. Most of the Barney Butters have sugar, for example, but Barney Bare
and Barney’s Raw + Chia do not.
