As someone who has a soft spot for peanut butter (a combination of words that is almost impossible to say when you’re actually eating it), we always have a jar sitting around somewhere. But the more peanuts are disappearing from schools, airplanes, and other public places that kid with peanut allergies might turn up, the more I realized it was time to check out another kind of nut butter.
And this one is wonderful.
Barney Butter is all-natural almond butter made with exactly four ingredients: almonds, evaporated cane juice, palm fruit oil, and sea salt. Per serving, Barney Butter has a few calories less than peanut butter and the same amount of protein. But it packs less than half the saturated fat, twice the vitamin E, and way more calcium. Made in a peanut-free facility, Barney Butter is guaranteed to be entirely without peanuts or peanut particles–which can be life-saving for kids with peanut allergies.
It doesn’t taste exactly like peanut butter–it’s kind of like how a veggie burger doesn’t taste exactly like a regular burger. But it’s still totally yummy.
