Why it’s healthy?

  • Ideal for those following a gluten-free diet.
  • Great source of fiber and “good” fats that promote healthy heart and healthy brain.
  • How to choose an almond butter: avoid added ingredients such as canola oil, sunflower oil, or peanut oil, and other preservatives. Ideally, you want almond butter that contains only almonds, although some added sea salt is fine for taste.
