It might seem logical that a serving of almonds no matter the form would provide the same nutritional value. Although a serving size of 15 almonds has about the same number of calories as a tablespoon of almond butter, research suggests that more calories are absorbed from almond butter than from whole almonds.

One of the great things about almond butter is how low it is in saturated fat. 5.6g per every 100g.

Two brands that I personally favour for cooking or just eating: Meridian Almond Butter and Pip & Nut .
