Rewind a couple of years ago and nut butters predominantly consisted of the basic peanut butter, which was laden with palm oil and even cane sugar. Fast forward and nut butter has become an everyday food hero, providing us with toppings for porridges, smoothies and even direct from the jar snacking. We’ve rounded up our favourite offerings to bring you the very best nut butters around.
Founded by female entrepreneur, Pippa Murray, Pip & Nut has been shaking up the nut butter category as the fastest growing nut butter brand in the country – and it is easy to see why. With a range of both peanut butters and almond butters, you can’t go wrong with a jar of Pip & Nut. They also come in handy sachets, which are great for a tasty on-the-go protein hit.

Nut Blend prides itself on prioritising delicious flavour without adding any type of sugar or sweetener…but that doesn’t stop them being anything other than indulgent. We love their innovative flavours, which move beyond the traditional peanut butter offering. One of our favourite flavours? Praline Nut butter- full of pecans, maca and crunchy almonds. Yes please!
