Well known as a nut butter, Almond Butter is the most popular alternative to peanut butter. It is loaded with magnesium, vitamin E, manganese and heart healthy fats. It is higher in calcium than any other nut butter and it has been shown to aid in weight loss and lower blood pressure. Almond butter is high in flavonoids, compounds found in the skin of almonds that are potent anti-oxidants and cancer suppressors. The delicious taste of almond butter can also help keep blood sugar under control due to its high protein, fiber and healthy fat content.
