We’re always looking for new ways to change up our everyday diet so it’s that much healthier. We’re picky though; those new ways have to be easy, and they have to be delicious. And that eliminates…well, most things. And so here we are, still snacking away on unhealthy crackers and cookies, relying on fatty dips and grabbing for chocolate bars every time we’re in a bad (or good) mood!

Sometimes it’s nice to indulge in these snack foods, and a little treat here and there is no problem. But for everyday eating, there are little changes we can make that will still do enough to make a difference. Ever try swapping peanut butter for almond butter? Or trying out almond flour? Even if you’ve tried and couldn’t get into them, you might change your mind this time. The power of almonds is real, and Barney Butter makes the switch simple — and yummy! Check out some of our favorite picks below!

Barney Butter 16 oz. Jar

This almond butter is totally free of peanuts (and gluten!), and is processed in a 100% peanut-free, certified-organic facility. All of the almonds used are grown in Central Valley, California, and the brand always uses organic and fair trade ingredients when possible. But apart from the clean health stuff, what makes this almond butter different than the others you’ve tried?

It’s known as the “gateway” almond butter. It’s made with blanched almonds, and it makes all the difference in taste and texture. Even better is that this almond butter is available in smooth, bare smooth (with no added sugar or salt), crunchy and even chocolate varieties!
