2. Nut Butters
While peanut butter isn’t technically a nut butter (peanuts being actually legumes), it still counts in this alternative section. Peanut butter, cashew butter, almond butter, or anything similar would be an excellent substitute for butter on your toast or in your baked goods.
However, we must warn you here that these nut butters should ideally be made at home. Alternatively, you may want to keep an eye out for the organic variety. If you grab the regular supermarket kind, you’d get a ton of unhealthy fat and a load of sugar in the mix! Butter would be tons better.
For making the nut butter at home, roast your shelled nuts first. Then, start spinning them in an electric grinder or chopper. They’ll turn powdery, and then slowly start to clump for a creamy result. If you feel the paste is too dry, add a few drops of olive oil.
