Peanut Butter Alternatives - There are Choices!

Thanks to +DaniellaKnell,Smart Allergy Friendly Education, for creating a list of Peanut Butter Alternatives with SO Many Delicious Choices! 
If you're new to peanut allergies, and worried about how you are going to live peanut-free or tree-nut free, RELAX!  There are a variety of choices available at budget-friendly prices in your local supermarkets.  The list that Smart Allergy Friendly Education has put together is a helpful guide to 6 different alternative brands with links to each of those products:

1) No-Nut Butter, Nut-free, Gluten-free, Soy-free and 100% Nut-free facility from the Sneaky Chef - No Nut Butter S.A.F.E.Review

2) I.M. Healthy, Nut-free, egg-free, dairy-free, gluten-free Soybutter

3) SunButter, Nut-free Sunflower Butter and 100% Nut-free facility - SunButter S.A.F.E.Review

4) Don'tGoNuts, Nut-free, Gluten-free, Vegan and 'Field to Fingers' Nut-free Processing from Nut Free Foods - Don't Go Nuts S.A.F.E. Review

5) Biscoff Spread, Vegan and Nut-free from Lotus - Biscoff Spread Review

6) WowButter, Nut-free Soybutter - WowButter S.A.F.E. Review

There are actually a couple more options out there that are also safe for those with peanut & tree nut allergies that my family enjoys and buys on a weekly basis:

7) Trader Joe's Sunflower Seed Butter (a family favorite) 


8) Swanson Organic Sunbutter:

Lastly, I would recommend one other product, but would make the distinction with this IMPORTANT NOTE Blue Mountain Organics Sunflower Seed Butter: IS MADE IN A PEANUT-FREE FACILITY BUT they do PROCESS TREE NUTS in THEIR facility SO there is a chance for cross contamination. THEY do THEIR best to control any possibility of cross-contamination in THEIR factory - THEY are extremely sensitive to this issue and very, very careful. Completely different machines are used in separate parts of the factory for grinding the nut butters and milling the grains, and THEIR machinery is broken down and thoroughly cleaned between production runs.
