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

Sunflower Seed Butter

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
