A two-tablespoon serving of almond butter has 7 grams of protein and 3.3 grams of fiber. It is high in calcium, copper, vitamin E, and other minerals. It is also high in fat but it’s healthy fat. Almond butter fills you up and keeps you satisfied. Smear a little on your toast, drizzle over your oatmeal, or sub a small amount for oil in your baked goods. Be sure to buy the natural kind without added salt or sugar.
You can sub a small handful of finely chopped raisins (soak first, if desired) or dried cranberries for the dates.
