I LOVE peanut butter. I eat it almost everyday, yet every once in a while I wish I had another yummy spread to put on rice cakes, rice crackers or celery. Other nut butters are a perfect alternative to peanut butter. In this article http://www.cookinglight.com/food/recipe-finder/nut-butter-primer-00400000040041/ from Cooking Light, eight different nut butter recipes are given. In addition to using the nuts right out of the shell, I have toasted them prior to creating the nut butter, for another layer of flavor. What is your favorite?
