From back-to-school lunches, breakfast additions to midnight snacks and everything in-between, these 4 Peanut Butter Alternatives are food allergy friendly and packed with flavor from sunflower seeds, soy, almonds and even cookies! From Peanut Free in the Queen City.

With more and more schools becoming peanut and nut free, parents are faced with finding peanut butter substitutes.  Luckily, there are many options available on the market that not only provide much needed protein and vitamins, but also satisfy that PB taste and consistency.

More importantly, as a food allergy parent, I find myself seeking out information about how these peanut butter alternatives are manufactured and processed. Since this goes beyond label reading, I’ve included these main points under each product description.

These peanut butter alternatives also serve as a great way of changing up your everyday breakfast spreads, office lunch and late night or daytime snack.
