These 5 Peanut-Free Nut Butters Will Change Your Life

These 5 Peanut-Free Nut Butters Will Change Your Life

Peanut butter is one of the most beloved foods in America, and just about every kid grows up eating loads of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches (if you didn’t, we pity you). Other nut butters offer tons of surprising nutritional value — not to mention, they’re uniquely delicious. Here are five:

Almond Butter
Almond butter contains more calcium, fiber, potassium, iron, and manganese than peanut butter, and about half the saturated fat. It’s also a good source of vitamin E and magnesium.

Cashew Butter
Cashew butter contains less fat than most other nuts, and is super-high in protein, unsaturated fats, and B vitamins, which boost metabolism, increase muscle and skin tone, and promote cell health.

Hazelnut Butter
Hazelnut butter contains twice as much vitamin E then peanut butter and is also high in monounsaturated fat, which can lower cholesterol.

Sunflower Seed Butter
While not technically a nut in a botanical sense (neither are almonds, cashews, or peanuts), sunflower seed butter is also a great alternative to peanut butter. It’s high in protein, fiber, zinc, and iron, and is very low in saturated fat. It also contains three B vitamins: niacin, pantothenic acid, and folate.

Macadamia Nut Butter
Rich and insanely delicious, macadamia nut butter can’t be found at many stores, but you can make it at home by grinding macadamias up in a blender or food processor. Two tablespoons of macadamia nut butter contain 1.1 milligrams of iron, 24 percent of the daily copper requirement, and 2.4 grams of dietary fiber.


Tree Nut and Peanut Free Candy List – Ultimate Guide

Here’s the complete peanut free candy list that you absolutely need in your life if you are allergic to peanuts or any tree nuts in general.

Finding peanut free candy that aren’t processed on shared equipment can be a stressful and time consuming task.

Whether if it’s researching every individual candy and their manufacturing process or carefully reading every single ingredient on the back of candy packaging, ensuring that your candy (or more importantly, your child’s candy) is peanut free, can ultimately take its toll.

But thankfully you’re in luck because we got you covered.

Below, you’ll find our ultimate peanut and nut free candy listing!


Kern's colorful, soft and chewy M&M sugar cookies can easily be made dairy-free by substituting Earth's Balance Vegan Butter Sticks for butter. If chocolate is an allergy, you can also replace the M&Ms with a different candy, such as carob.

These snickerdoodles from The Urban Poser are not only dairy-free, they're also egg-, grain- and gluten-free. That makes them great to bake with kids because children can safely lick the dough from the spoon or their fingers to their hearts' content.


Is there a cure?

Short answer: no, there isn’t. In fact, repeated exposures to the allergen will often cause faster and more serious reactions each time. The only “cure”, unfortunately, is strict avoidance of those foods that set off the allergic response, and being your own advocate for your health.

This means making a concerted effort, along with your family doctor, to recognize your triggers, and then a lifetime of allergic reaction management, from requesting ingredient lists of menu items from restaurant servers, to avoidance of places and people who are well-known “nut allergen disseminators” (think casual eating establishments with bags of peanuts at the front door *coughJACK ASTORScough*), and most importantly, carrying an epi-pen with you wherever you go — and ensuring you and your loved ones know what to do with it if the worst comes to pass and you are experiencing an anaphylactic reaction due to inadvertent exposure.

Are Milfina Jelli pop ice blocks completely nut free please?

Does anyone know if aunt Jamaica pancake mix is nut free.?

Thanks guys, your list is awesome. My poor 6 year old daughter was eating some cereals that contained peanuts and didn’t even realized it. She never liked peanuts or peanut butter but I never realized that some candies also contained peanuts in it. Thank God we caught it on time.

Any suggestions on where I can find sunflower or pumpkin seeds, pine nuts that don’t go down the same conveyor belt as all the other nuts?

Thank you so much for this list! I am a grandma of 4, 1 grandchild allergic to peanuts. You will make my life so much better. I do look at labels but occasionally miss something. Or , like this halloween, mixed up grandkids snacks and had a peanut butter candy accidentally get sent home to grandbaby. I would never intentionally do that! Was sent angry text about it. Well, thanks to you that whole scenario won’t happen again! You and your list are much appreciated! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

At the beach with Special K Res Berries and needed to confirm them safe for a child with nut allergies. Kellogg’s was closed, up early at the beach, so we found your site. It was very helpful. Thanks

Peanut Free Snacks + Nut Free Snacks

The best way to determine if foods are allergy-free snacks is to read the label since brands should have a warning statement or allergen list. Be aware of phrases like this:

“May Contain Peanut or Tree Nuts.”

“Processed on shared equipment with Peanuts or Tree Nuts.”

“Manufactured in a plant with Peanut or Tree Nuts.”

“Contains Peanut or Tree Nut Ingredients.”

You can also check the FAQs on the website but packaging should have the most updated info.

Some schools give guidelines that foods must not contain peanut or tree nuts but don’t require them to be from nut-free facilities. Some do. Be familiar with the rules for wherever you’re sending food so you can make sure to choose snacks that comply with their guidelines. And remember that although choosing allergy-friendly options like this can be a pain if your family does not have allergies, it’s important for the safety of a lot of kids and allergy families appreciate you putting in the time and effort to keep their kids safe. My hope is that this list will make your job just a little bit easier.

Remember that allergies are linked to the immune system.
I have had severe allergies all my life until I powered my body with fruits and vegetables. In 8 months my thyroid condition DISAPPEARED, at the amazement of my endocrinologist, and my allergies are virtually non existent in which I take no medication AT ALL. It sounds like you are a a very dedicated and health conscious mother. That's great she's eating fruits and vegetables, but she needs a tremendous amount to heal that peanut allergy. Try Juice Plus which is 17 fruits and vegetables in gummy, chewable, or capsule form. It's only $22.75/month for her. $41.75/month for you. My doctor recommends it and it is what turned my life around. It was featured as a powerful immune enhancer on "The Doctors" show by Dr. Jim Sears. Dr. Richard Dubois from the Center of Disease Control is another huge advocate. Please see my website at kguestsharesjuiceplus.com. Blessings, K. Guest

One of my best friends has a 8 year old daughter with a peanut allergy. I will foreward off your question to her and hopefuly she can give you some ideas. I dont think she shops at a whole foods store. By now she knows what brands to buy that are peanut (and processed in a plant that has peanuts) free.


20 Best Peanut-Free Candies for Kids With Allergies, According to a Registered Dietitian

Having a peanut allergy doesn't mean that you can't enjoy all of the sweetness that a trip to the candy aisle has to offer. It does mean, however, that you have to be more conscious of the candy you grab out of your candy jar.

Among all food allergies, an allergy to nuts is one of the most common, and it seems to be on the rise&mdashespecially among children. Experts think that prior recommendations for pregnant and nursing women and kids under three to avoid peanuts may have played a part, says Lindsey Janeiro, RDN, CLT, a registered dietitian specializing in food allergies.

Today, recent research has brought about new guidelines, urging mothers to introduce nuts to their children much sooner. &ldquoNow, we recommend that pregnant and nursing moms include peanuts in their diets, and parents should introduce peanuts to infants as young as four to six months of age,&rdquo Janeiro says. With this new guidance, clinicians hope to see a reduction in peanut allergies.

Parents of allergy sufferers must be diligent about checking the ingredients on popular candies and be aware of the symptoms of an allergic reaction. Typical signs of a peanut allergy range from minor to severe, including:

    • Skin reactions like hives, redness, or swelling
    • Itching or tingling in or around the mouth and throat
    • Diarrhea
    • stomach cramping, nausea, or vomiting
    • Tightening of the throat
    • Shortness of breath or wheezing
    • Rapid pulse
    • Dizziness, lightheadedness, or loss of consciousness

    If you think you're experiencing minor signs of a peanut allergy, consult your doctor, but a severe allergic reaction requires emergency medical attention. In the meantime, get ready for Halloween by stocking up on peanut-free candy that's safe for your little ones to enjoy on around holidays and throughout the rest of the year.

    It's important to keep in mind that, while a food may have been peanut-free right at one point, brands often change their product formulas and processing methods, Janeiro says. We've rounded up the tastiest peanut-free candy to pick up this fall, but keep in mind that you should always double-check food labels, even those of your favorites, before anything before adding anything to your shopping cart.
