Nuts are great for your health. I love my nut butters and I usually buy them from Melrose or Meridian. They sell everything from almond to macadamia butter. Now, instead of buying them from foreign brands, we can reduce our carbon footprint and at the same time, support local butter churners.
One such company is Nuts About Butter, which creates their butters using baked nuts, raw honey and sea salt. They have three different flavours: almond, almond macadamia and almond sesame. You can buy them in full sized jars or small little cute ones like these below.
I have never had nut butters with sweeteners before. The honey was a nice addition because it balanced out the creaminess of the nuts.
Nuts about Butter can be purchased at:
- Eden’s Kitchen – located at 5 Everton Park, #01-34. Their online store does not carry the nut butters but you can get them from their premises.
On my recent trip to the Kranji Countryside Farmers’ market, I also came across nut butters made by The Hunters’ Kitchenette.
I bought the black sesame cashew butter because I’m a huge fan of black sesame. I have a particular weakness for Zhi Ma Hu, which is a Chinese dessert of black sesame paste.
Like Nuts About Butter, ingredients are kept to a minimum. The nut butters contain roasted nuts, coconut palm sugar and sea salt. One 200g bottle costs between $14 to $16.
Nut butters from The Hunter’s Kitchenette can be purchased at:
- A variety of locations around Singapore. These places can be found here.
Give nut butters a try today! For those of you used to sickeningly, sweet commercial peanut butter, these nut butters are definitely a much healthier and yummier alternative.
