Friday Finds: Travel Size Nut Butter

Looking for a healthy travel snack? BOY-Nut butter

I am obsessed with nut butter. Before we get into the delicious travel size nut butter that I found, I would like to briefly discuss nut butter. Recently, I found out I have a peanut allergy (not life-threatening), so I have been doing my best to avoid peanut base products. Prior to learning of my peanut allergy, peanut butter was an essential healthy travel snack for me, because it is so easy to find on the road. After learning of my peanut allergy, I went into a natural food store and discovered the array of other types of nut butter.

There are eight types of nut butters you can find (not to be confused with seed butters), thought not all are available in single serving, travel sizes. See the infographic at the bottom of the page for the nutritional information of each type. 

  • Almond Butter
  • Brazil Nut Butter
  • Cashew Butter
  • Coconut Butter (fun fact- coconut is classified as a nut, seed, & fruit!)
  • Hazelnut Butter
  • Peanut Butter
  • Pistachio Butter
  • Walnut Butter

When packing nut butter, remember that TSA considers it a liquid. You may be lucky enough to get it through security in your normal bag, but don’t say I didn’t warn you! Lastly, when flavor is added, typically sugar is added, so the nutritional value may change if you prefer a flavored nut butter.
