Five Nut Butter Substitutions You May Have Never Thought Of Before

Have a child that is allergic to tree nuts? It can be difficult at times to avoid nut butters whether you’re making sandwiches, baking goodies, whipping up smoothies – whatever! Here’s a list of butters you probably never thought of substituting.


1.    Pumpkin Butter

That’s right! Butter made with lovely pumpkin puree. This is a very unique recipe – one that takes a little time and love. It goes very well with sandwiches, as spreads, and in smoothies. If you’re looking for a fantastic, sweet and savory butter this is a great way to go!

2.    Apple Butter

This is another butter that errs on the sweeter side – the MUCH sweeter side. Apple Butter is a fantastic addition to desserts because of its rich and bold flavor. Definitely something to try out!

3.    Coconut Butter

If you or your child can handle coconut, this is an awesome substitute to try out. It has a very creamy texture and it tastes amazing!

4.    Soy Nut Butter

Soy nuts (which are not tree nuts) are a splendid source of protein. I highly recommend using this as a spread and in sandwiches!

5.    Sesame Seed Butter (Tahini)

Not going to lie, Tahini is spectactular. Plus, sesame seeds are an incredible source of nutrients (not to mention they are also jam-packed with omega-6’s). Attached is a very simple recipe, but I recommend experimenting a bit! Try adding some vanilla extract for dessert dishes.
