Almond butter vs. peanut butter

The champ: almond butter

Sweeter tasting than peanut butter, the almond spread contains more bone-building magnesium and calcium as well as additional levels of the potent antioxidant vitamin E. There is also more monounsaturated fat, shown to improve cholesterol numbers, making almond butter a champion for heart health. When possible, select brands that only list one ingredient: almonds!
