When you want minerals, proteins, and healthy fats, any variety of nuts are some of the best snacks you’ll find – and that goes for nut butter as well.
But while there’s certainly a taste difference, is one better than the other – is almond butter better than peanut butter?
When it comes to calcium, almond butter has nearly seven times more than peanut butter, and about three times the amount of vitamin E. But for other vitamins and minerals like iron, magnesium, and potassium, you’ll find the same amount.
When it comes to fat, almond butter has about two grams more total than peanut butter.
So, while almond butter is probably the healthier overall, if you grab either, you’ll find plenty of health fats, protein, and plenty of minerals that you need.
