I live in NZ and wondering if anyone knows of a bought substitute for Peanut Butter. (I dream about eating peanuts and peanut butter still - only 8mths since first become PA!)

A friend made me some Hazelnut Butter which was delicious (and expensive), so I was wondering if anyone else makes any PB substitute?
Any recipes?

I have just discovered SunButter, and it is the closest thing to peanut butter that I've found yet. I have found it at every natural/whole food grocer, as well as Publix and Kroger (Southern grocery stores). For more info: [url=""][/url]
[i]Note: The regular SunButter contains tocopheryls, which are probably derived from Soy. The Organic SunButter doesn't contain this additive.[/i]

My niece who is allergic to both soy and peanuts also enjoys a product called Peabutter which is also pretty good, but I still like Sunbutter better. For more info go to [url=""][/url]

PS... I posted a delicious recipe using SunButter in another thread on this forum: [url=""][/url]

We eat soynut butter. It's made from toasted soy beans. And it really does smell and taste like PB, as well the texture is nearly identical. I found it in the health food section of a local grocery store.

Do you know if they sell Sunbutter at Trader Joes?

Yes, they sell their own version of Sunbutter at Trader Joe's under private label. We always bought that before Sunbutter came available in our Hannaford supermarkets. I never had a problem with the one at Trader Joe's. It's delicious.

I'm awfully fond of [url=""]Simple Food's soynut butter[/url] - it comes in different degrees of sweetness, which is a nice feature.

ETA: Unfortunately, it also has sunflower oil. Which I'm apparently very allergic to. Drat.
