10 Delicious Recipes with Nut Butters

Recipes with nut butters are hard to ignore these days! Nut butters can add so much to sauces, dressings, baked goods, and protein/energy balls.

Peanut butter is the gateway nut butter of most of our childhoods, right? But these days? The world's gone nutty for nut butters lately! Sorry, we couldn't resist a good food pun.

That's because nut butters are a great source of healthy fats, protein, nutrients, antioxidants, minerals, magnesium, and flavor. And they happen to taste great, too. These days, nut butters come in a variety of options such as almond, cashew, pecan, hazelnut, walnut, and pistachio butter which yes, is as expensive as it sounds! Some companies, such as Target and Trader Joe's, even sell mixed nut butters with chia and flax seed in them, too, for a super healthy spread.

Suffice to say, you can substitute any nut butter in these recipes. Got lots of almond butter on hand? Go ahead and use it! Not sure why you bought that hazelnut butter? Try it out in one of these recipes with nut butter. We have put together a list of recipes with nut butter, if you're looking for new and creative ways to use them.
