Best places to get almond butter in the UK

Overview

Almond butter has more vitamins, minerals and fibre (per 100g) than peanut butter. In addition, it has around half the carbs at around 6.2g per 100g (compared to 12g for peanut butter).

It’s generally made of just blended roasted almonds. Although, some manufacturers keep the skins on, others take them off. Pricewise, it’s usually about double the price of peanut butter so use sparingly!

It has a distinct taste and most brands I’ve tried have a coarser texture then peanut butter. It’s richer and leaves you feeling fuller, so I tend to eat less when having it as a snack. Side note: Cheese dipped in almond butter is great snack!

Other nut butters

Almost all nuts can be made into a butter. Over the past couple of years more and more are hitting the shelves in UK food stores. Check out my articles on where you can get them:

Buy in-store

Most of the big supermarkets in the UK have started to stock almond butter. Some have even started to sell their own branded version. The price can vary greatly so shop around for a good deal. If you have an Aldi or Lidl near you, then I recommend you visit them first. They usually tend to be the best price.

Notes

Price – As it becomes more popular, you can expect the price to come down. I’ve seen the price reduce considerably in the past two years as more brands compete for the best price per kg.

Uses

  • as a snack (just grab a spoon)
  • mixed with yoghurt (soy or Greek style are usually the lowest carb)
  • in a smoothie (use almond milk, cocoa powder and some sweetener)
  • make a dipping sauce (satay)
  • make fat bombs, cookies, brownies & muffins.
