Nut butters have great nutritional density and tons of benefits for your body and fitness. There's so much you can do with either nut butter that it’s very hard for us to pick one (we may be biased here too, ahem).
But if you must choose between peanut butter and almond butter, then here’s a quick guide. First things first, if you are allergic to peanuts then the only choice you need to make is between Dark Chocolate and Unsweetened Almond Butter. They're both creamy and delicious.
Both almond and peanut butter are a great source of vegetarian protein and both have more protein per serving than an egg (6g / egg). But peanut wins this round. A 32g serving of peanut butter has 10g of protein, which is more than an equivalent amount of almond butter.
In the table above we’ve compared 100% natural unsweetened peanut butter and unsweetened almond butter so there’s no added sugar in either. The sugar you see on the labels of these products occurs naturally in the nuts themselves. They’re both comparable but almond butter has slightly lower sugar than peanut butter. Both these nut butters are keto friendly and you can get them in our Ultimate Keto Combo.
Vitamins & Minerals
Almonds have three times as much Vitamin E as compared to peanuts. At Happy Jars our manufacturing process ensures we keep these vitamins intact. Almonds keep your heart super-healthy and are a good source of iron too.
This is the one thing we hate calculating and the thing we think matters the least when choosing between two super foods. The good news for you is both Almond and Peanut butter have very similar calorie content and lots of energy. This stands true for most nuts and nut butters. However, for wholesome nutritional value, it's recommended that you don't stick to just one type of nut butter and eat them both, like we do!
This isn’t a contest though, so there’s no one winner. We suggest you pick your favourite nut butter based on your taste and mood that day. Switch them up to keep your protein intake interesting. Add a dollop on your oats, milkshakes, smoothies, cookies, brownies, salads, marinades, and even on top of that ice cream scoop *drool*.
