Nutty Butter Toast

OK, so we all know about peanut butter, right? But there is a whole world of nut and seed butters waiting to be explored! AND we've included a nut-free option, see below. 

Cashew, almond, tahini (sesame), hemp, sunflower are just some of those on offer. Then there are the mixed nut/seed butters... 

Similarly with bread - go for the best you can afford, preferably wholemeal - and if you're really into it, buy a breadmaker or just make it the traditional way. It's light years away from Hovis brown! If you're allergic to wheat, there are plenty of good alternatives - spelt, rye and more - and for the coeliacs or gluten-allergic, there is a much better range out there and improving all the time, just check there is no added egg. 

 

Nut and seed butter lowdown
All these butters are a fantastic source of good fats, protein and more. There is also a choice of raw butters - ie the nuts aren't roasted - or the more traditional roasted versions. 

  • For those of you with nut allergies - or school-age kids who aren't allowed to take nuts into school - there is even 'WowButter' sold in Tesco et al - it's a nut free 'peanut butter' alternative that even has nut-free certification on the jar!  
  • Brands? Lots.  Many of the cheaper ones contain added palm oil and sugar. The better ones don't, but are more expensive. Have a look at the shelves, consider your budget and go for the best you can afford. Health food shops - high street or online - will often carry a much wider range of brands than the supermarkets although cashew, almond and other types have reached the big chains, hooray!
  • Home-made? It's pretty easy and a lot cheaper, but you do need a hefty food processor or blender! See our Home Made Nut & Seed Butter recipe here
