The 9 Best Nut Butters — Ever!

If you’re still only choosing peanut butter as your go-to nut spread, you are seriously missing out — not only on some wildly delicious and palate pleasing flavors, but on a host of nutrients that can help you meet your health goals.

Below is a list of the BEST 9 Nut butters—Ever!

Ok, maybe it’s not the best EVER, but these are currently my favorite nut butters and some of their most redeeming qualities.

If I was forced to eat nothing but nut butter on a spoon forever this is how I would rank them: (p.s. this was really hard to do and you should just consider them all neck and neck!)


BEST. Breakfast. Ever. (recipe inside)


  1. Life of Riley Walnut Butter

Oh, yum. This nut butter transformed my list — walnuts boast a host of vitamins and minerals including a healthy dose of omega-3 fatty acids and fiber.

  1. Artisana Raw Coconut Butter

Oh, yum again! With it’s high lauric acid content making it a super defender against all sorts of microbial junk and it’s rich source of essential fatty acids, fiber, iron, and vitamin E, coconut butter is a smart choice for nut butter snacks.

  1. SunButter Sunflower Seed spread

This little seed packs quite the nutritional punch boasting fiber, magnesium, niacin, and vitamin E.

  1. Maranatha Macadamia Nut Butter

Thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, folate, and copper are just a few of the nutrients found in this delicious, buttery macadamia nut butter.

  1. Artisana Cashew Butter

Creamy cashew butter is heaven on toast with fresh, ripe blackberries — plus you’ll benefit from it’s mix of nutrients including vitamin K, a vital fat-soluble vitamin that plays a role in blood clotting and reducing inflammation, maintains healthy bones and heart tissue, and contributes to a healthy micro biome.

  1. Wilderness Poets Pistachio Butter

Ok, confession: I haven’t actually eaten this brand BUT I have made my own and it was de-lightful! This brand looks equally inviting. Try it out for a rich source of fiber, B vitamins, copper, manganese, iron, and other vital minerals.

  1. Maranatha Roasted Almond Butter

Almonds really are a super nut! They have a fantastic amount of fiber and protein, but also contain phytosterols and other antioxidants to keep you young and vibrant.

  1. Adam’s 100% Natural Unsalted Peanut Butter

This nut butter is naturally salty due to its ample supply of minerals, including potassium and magnesium, but is most touted for it’s high Vitamin E content.

  1. Kolat Superfood Fusions, Espresso Hazelnut

This a fun new twist on nut butters and I use it as a treat every now and then. Hazelnuts are loaded with flavonoids that support brain health and circulation. Couple that with the antioxidant punch from the espresso bean and wow, you’ve got a power-packed snack in one spoonful!

So, go ahead, branch out from that boring, artificially sweetened, trans-fat-laden peanut butter you ate as a kid. Your body deserves delicious and nutritious foods.

Fortunately, there are many exciting, scrumptious, and nutrient-packed nut and seed butters just waiting to be creatively dipped, whipped, slathered, spread, and spooned for your snacking pleasure!
