i have noticed many recipes (desserts, snacks) have peanut butter in them, which we all love but my youngest son is allergic to it. Are there ways to substitute something else in its place?
Also i have seen something at walmart that looks like peanut butter but isn't made from peanuts has anyone tried this? I think it's call peabutter or something like that!
Thankyou
Shannon

Another nut butter, like almond or cashew? Or sunflower-seed butter? or tahini, which is made with sesame seeds?

I have made cookies with soy nut butter for my dd who is also allergic to peanuts. they didnt taste too bad

A lot of times people who are allergic to peanuts can have other nuts, like vikingkinna suggested. Peanuts are in the legume family. So unless there is also a treenut allergy you could try some of those.

Yes, you can mix Activated Barley with virgin coconut oil. OMG, it's delicious.
It tastes similar to peanut butter, but better!

Have you tried pumpkin seed butter? We love it and use it in cookies, on sanwiches and toast. Yum. DS like the soy nut butter but I can't have it in the house cause, to me, it smells like %$@. I'm pretty sensitive to smell.

We use this one: http://www.omeganutrition.com/produc...pkinbutter.php

We're in Canada as well and have found it easily available wherever we've lived.

i second (or is it third) the suggestion for other nut butters- we have almond here, it's yummy, not quite as sweet as peanut though- good luck!
