Looking for a healthy travel snack? Try packing travel size nut butter for your next trip.
I am obsessed with nut butter. It makes a great travel snack and it is easy to pack. Before we get into the delicious travel size nut butter that I found, I would like to briefly discuss nut butter. A few years back, 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.

How To Pack Travel Size Nut Butter
When packing nut butter, remember that TSA considers it a liquid and it must be 3oz. or less. As long as the squeeze pack is under 3 oz., you should not have any trouble getting it through security. If you are concerned, throw the squeeze pack in the fridge before your trip so it is cooler when you go through airport security.
Powered nut butter can also go through security. Be aware if you are traveling with powered peanut butter that you may not be able to open it in-flight if you have anyone with a peanut allergy on your flight.
