A few years ago you’d have been hard pressed to find more than two jars of peanut butter on your supermarket shelf – one crunchy and one smooth.
But the world we live in today is very different.
The nut butter market has exploded, with everything from cashew butter with cacao nibs to crunchy almond butter with hemp seeds gracing our shelves (and our Instagram feeds).
Healthy foodies generously drizzle and dollop nut butters atop their acai bowls and overnight ‘proats’ (protein oats of course) and more and more brands are selling their spreads in mammoth 1kg tubs because we just can’t get enough.
But it’s all-natural nut butters that are driving all of this.
Generally runnier than the creamy peanut butter you probably had growing up – the new wave of nut butters contain no added oil of any kind and no refined or artificial ingredients.
