I've tried cashew butter ... I really like it (it's richer and milder than almond butter) but since it's so expensive I seldom buy it.

Almond butter's great. Have you tried mixing it into oatmeal?

Watch out Rie....Almond butter is addictive! I eat huge amounts of it all the time. On bread, crackers, pitas, apples....see where I'm going! It's great. Cashew butter is too. Our local food co-op gets it in huge amounts and then repackages it, so it's usually pretty cheap.

I've never had any other kind of nut butter besides peanut butter. Well, I ate some with almond butter in it once, but I don't think that really counts. Ando nce I tried to make pecan butter, and that was, well, disgusting. I ned to buy some almond butter and try it. It sounds really yummy.

Yep, I just mix in a spoonful. On mornings when I'm really busy or I know I won't have lunch until late, it makes breakfast much more filling.

I love almond butter. I have it on sprouted grain bread every other morning for breakfast. I used to eat it every morning. I've used it in oatmeal before and yes, it is yummy.

I bought a jar of cashew butter once and really didn't care too much for it's mild flavor but, it is pretty good whipped into silkened tofu with a little maple syrup. It makes a good whipped cream substitute.

Mmmm, I love almond and cashew butter! I don't buy them too often, since they're so pricey, but they make a nice treat once and a while!


Has anyone ever tried sunflower seed butter? I saw some at Publix, but I didn't get any because I didn't know if I'd like it, since I've never even had sunflower seeds before! :/ I'd like to try brazil nut butter too.

If you can find almond butter in bulk it's much cheaper. It's about $5 per lb (CDN) at the health food store near me, and much more expensive if I buy it in jars.

I make almond butter myself , it's surprisingly easy ; just roast the almonds in the oven, then grind'em with a little salt (and a little brown sugar and vanilla, but that's optional, I guess the salt is too, actually)

I make PB and hazelnut butter too. So much cheaper.

Couldn't you grind it with a grinding stone?

I adore almond butter, ever since I tried it I refuse to eat peanut butter.
