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

  1. I absolutely love Barney Butter – a peanut butter lovers dream made with almonds. Chunky style – please! It’s super hard to find though. Whole Foods sells it but only in half size jars. I need to branch out and try other ones too! That cinnamon raisin swirl sounds decadent. :)

  2. Trader Joe’s Sunflower Seed Butter is my nut butter of choice. The taste beats out PB, almond butter, cashew butter….I’m not counting coconut butter since that’s not really in the same category. Just gotta remember that when cooking with it, it turns things a weird shade of green!

  3. Awesome PB score, I’ve love to try some of those flavors! Especially the cinnamon. Oh yum, Vegan White Chocolate Chocolate-Peanut Butter Cups look fabulous. So many great recipes here, wow!

    1. Nope, never tried that brand.
    2. Sunflower Seed butter, Cashew Butter and Tahini.
    3. I love just eating it out of the jar. :-) Or in dessert recipes.

  4. Pingback: Peanut Butter Recipes » Your Recipe Database

  5. yum I LOVE pb and would love to try the dark chocolate dreams mmmm!

  6. While everything looks absolutely phenomenal – I think I’ll have to tackle that peanut butter banana cake first ;)
    I love Mighty Maple! I may or may not have finished my sister’s jar on her while she was away :X
    And I am a sunflower seed butter fiend – definitely my favorite. Which is sort of ironic, because I basically NEVER use it in the a.m. or when it would otherwise get “blog time.” Little does everyone know I douse my cereal in it every night :P

  7. I love all nut butters, but my heart truly belongs to peanut butter! A big spoonful right out of the jar is the best!

  8. all those pb recipes look amazing! DCD is prob my fav, along with koeze pb (which is made in the same city i live in!). i like it best straight outta the jar with spoon. :)

  9. I am so jealous!! I can’t find most of those flavors near me :(

  10. I am just getting really into coconut butter (for a big surprise, being such a coconut fiend)–it has amazing recipe potential which I’ll share soon.

    I have come to really love pb in recipes and with chocolate, but I try not to get too many omega-6 (and yes, I know this is an invasion of nutritionism into whether or not something’s delicious) and so I don’t have it too often. But I’m careful to make sure that no hydrogenated oils or funky stuff is added–and actually, I love peanut flour for getting the pb flavor with less of the oils.

    I shared a recipe this last week for a pb mousse brownie, though, so you can’t keep me away from it completely. I hope you’re enjoying that cool stash!
    love
    Ela

  11. Can I just say that peanut butter is my favorite thing EVER. PB + banana + chocolate = best smoothie in the world! I love your cumulative posts, it makes it so simple to use some of my favorite ingredients! (read: peanut butter and raisins:))

  12. This post is heaven and torture all at once! I adore peanut butter recipes, but in Australia there is not a SINGLE FLAVOURED PEANUT BUTTER company. In fact, there’s only one company that does almond butter/cashew butter, and they don’t taste great! We do, at least, have a wonderful sunflower butter here, but all this talk of PB&Co and Naturally Nutty kills me!

  13. cinnamon raisin peanut butter sounds like trouble in a jar to me! I’d be done with that in a day!

    I love TJ’s Raw almond butter. I just made macaroons with it and things went perfectly. I also love dipping carrots and baby bok choy in almond butter. Sometimes I make my own, but it’s easier to buy it there!

    I also like putting cashew butter into hummus instead of tahini. oh, is it amazing!

  14. Now that’s a box I want to open up!

    PB is definitely my number one nut butter, but I’d never turn any other one down. I love them all! Thanks for all the recipes together, I can’t wait to try some of them :)

  15. OMG Im making those caramel pb bites this weekend!

  16. Oh my goodness, this post is totally making me drool, so much nut buttery goodness! I am with you on TJs sunflower butter, it’s my number one favorite too. I love it just slathered on a banana. Now I really need some, I am out :(

    In fact I just ran out of any kind of nut butter yesterday, so this post is really making me sad LOL.

  17. I made some reese’s cups with the dark chocolate pb and they were so good (but so rich!)

  18. Great recipe roundup. But way more importantly, GREAT new layout! I love it! Congrats on the redesign amidst all of your hard work right now.

    • Thanks, Gena.

      I’ve been live for about 3-4 weeks now with my new site. The first week or so was headache city but the glitches are past me (knock on wood) and I am loving being self hosted WP. Dont know how i lasted almost 2 yrs on blogger. Eeek!

      Hard work..you and i are both extremely hard workers :)

  19. Wow, I can’t believe all the peanutty recipes you’ve got! Each one looks better than the one before. You’re a culinary genius!

  20. I LOVE TJs sunflower seed butter!!!! Lovelovelove. Because of it’s drippy consistency, I usually drizzlie it over yogurt or cereal. Beyond that, my favourite nut butter is plain ole’ natural “just peanuts” peanut butter. I don’t like my PB sweetened, I find it tastes like icing. I prefer adding my own sweetener in the form of maple syrup, honey, jam, or fluff ;)

  21. I am definitely a nut butter freak and proud of it!! My favorite is that Mighty Maple… I call it the Almighty Maple! :) The Naturally Nutty toffee PB is also absolutely fantastic. And I’m with you, I bake with Skippy Natural and save my expensive stuff for other things… like spooning directly into my mouth!

  22. I’ve loved this brand for years (their cinnamon raisin flavor helped get me through college), but I had no idea they made a spicy version! I’d better get on that!
    My favorite nut butter is definitely Artisana raw cashew butter – creamiest thing in existence. But I barely ever have it because it is incredibly expensive – I only wish I had some crazy industrial food processor capable of making a cashew butter that smooth!

    • i think the Heat is On is fairly new but dont quote me!

      I have accidentally made cashew butter in my Vita. Raw cashews from TJs, turn on Vita, forget about them for 1 min too long and bam, cashew butter. They are a soft nut and a vita is very powerful…that would never just “happen” w/ almonds tho! Or even peanuts.

  23. I might get torn and feathered for this but I HATE flavored nut butters. And I bake with the sugary ones, but otherwise, I like it just with salt. Except SFSB, which is by far my favorite…that needs a little sweetener.

    My faves are, on order, sf seed, tahini (if that counts), and then cashew, and last pb. I don’t like almond butter, unless its free. :D

  24. WOW..to this post! This would be my ultimate dream! keep up with the recipes including PB its my favorite food ( and Im sure all of us foodies appreciate PB and well,….ANYTHING)

  25. Dark chocolate dreams is AMAZING! I can’t find it in stores here and it’s freaking expensive to order online so I hide my jar. I’m not wasting the good stuff on unrefined palates that think Tootsie rolls are “chocolate”!
