Questions:

What’s your favorite nut butter(s) of all time?  Type and brand?

I know this is asking a lot of you nut butter freaks food bloggers and blog readers.

Mine are:

1. Sunflower Seed Butter/Trader Joe’s

This is my #1 go-to nut butter of all time.  There are other brands of sunflower seed butter but based on price, taste, availability, I love TJ’s sunflower seed butter.

2. Peanut Butter:

Mainstream:  Jif Naturals or Skippy Naturals (I always cook with these or use these in recipes.  I save my specialty nut butters for just eating plain.)

Specialty: Naturally Nutty Butter Toffee Peanut Butter

Flavored/Chocolate: PB & Co Dark Chocolate Dreams

I have never been a huge fan of Almond Butter.  It’s fine, but it will never ever compare to or replace SFSB or PB for me.

Same with cashew butter, hemp seed butter, etc.  They are fine and fun for a change, but I love SFSB and PB more!

See This Post for a stash of some of my nut butters.

3. Cookie Butter.  Also known as Speculoos Spread

    I absolutely LOVE PB and Co.

    I haven’t tried “The Heat is On” yet, but the others are all amazing. The maple is my fave!!

    So so SO jealous of your PB&Co stash! I’ve tried the White Chocolate Wonderful, Smooth Operator, Dark Chocolate Dreams, and the Cinnamon Raisin Swirl, but I am DYING to try the Mighty Maple…just haven’t found it in any stores around here yet! Out of the ones that I’ve tried, the Cinnamon Raisin Swirl was def my fave. I loved “surprise” of the raisins mixed throughout!

    Favorite nut butter of all time: TJ’s Valencia PB with flax! I love the roasted peanutty taste and the crunch factor is out of this world…and I don’t even normally like crunchy PB!

    The best way to eat nut butter (besides with a spoon) is definitely in overnight oats! Love the way it clings to the thick oat mixture!!

    I’ve only tried the DCD of PB & Co, but I loved it! I usually go with the standard natural chunky peanut butter, but I love chunky almond butter whenever I can get my hands on it.

    PB & Co.’s Cinnamon Raisin Swirl is my all-time favorite peanut butter, but I LOVE Trader Joe’s Crunchy, Salted Peanut Butter. Just two simple ingredients make TJ’s version a masterpiece – peanuts and salt! :)

    I was just reading Serious Eats and Epicurus taste tests for PB. (Natural and regular.) Have you tried this? Of course, I just pinned youf Honey Roasted PB recipe because homemade is the best. I usually bake with Jif. I would love to hear your thoughts, girl!

    This is an amazing collection of peanut butter recipes! I love the way that you can find uses for peanut butter in all kinds of baked (and no-bake) recipes :)
    I’ve been following your blog, and noticed that you have not yet posted any peanut butter ice cream recipes. I recently made peanut butter chocolate covered pretzel ice cream and think it would fit in well with the kind of treats you make! If you have the time, you should check it out at http://rookstocooks.wix.com/home as inspiration for your fantastic recipe collection :)
