I enjoy quality peanut butter slathered on bread, an apple or a banana as much as any non-allergic American, but its nice to add variation to my mid-afternoon snack once in a while. I’ve recently gotten into almond butter; it’s just like peanut butter except– that’s right– made from almonds. My sister introduced me to the various options offered by Justin’s Nut Butter based in Boulder, CO. They offer classics including peanut butter, almond butter, and hazelnut butter and also varieties mixed with honey, maple, cinnamon, and chocolate. They also come in convenient sizes like 100 cal snack packs for travel (small enough to not be considered a hazardous liquid or gel!). Chocolate hazelnut on toast makes an excellent quick and easy dessert before bed.
