Welcome to Day 9 of my 12 Days of Allergy-Friendly Favorites! (If you missed the last seven days, check them out here: Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4, Day 5, Day 6, Day 7, Day 8.) Throughout these 12 days I am sharing some of my favorite products and companies with you. Some of these make wonderful gifts to someone with food allergies (or a parent,) and show that you really care about them and their food allergies. Please note I was not paid to write about any of these companies and all opinions are my own.

Are you missing peanut butter? Is your childs school nut-free and you’re looking for another sandwich option? Personally I love peanut butter, but having a daughter with a peanut allergy means it is strictly off limits in our home. I never thought I’d find a replacement, but there are now some great alternatives to nut butters that are all peanut and tree nut free and taste delicious! Check out my favorites:
- Don’t Go Nuts -Don’t Go Nuts makes a line of no-nut butters from soybeans that are made in a completely nut, egg, and sesame free facility, and are certified gluten-free. They carry chocolate, slightly sweet, cinnamon sugar, pure unsalted and lightly sea salted versions. Find out where it is carried using their store locator.
- Sneaky Chef – The Sneaky Chef No-Nut Butters are made from naturally sweet and “nutty” tasting golden peas (a legume.) It is a delicious peanut butter alternative, without a trace of peanuts, tree nuts, seeds, or soy. They also make a chocolate version as well and on the website you can find a coupon for your next purchase, recipes, and a store locator is available on their facebook page.
- Sunbutter -SunButter Sunflower Butter is free from peanuts, tree nuts, dairy, egg, gluten, and sesame and they have a wide variety of options including creamy, chunky, no salt added, and organic. SunButter is made in the U.S. from locally-grown, specially-roasted, GMO free sunflower seeds, which are processed in a dedicated peanut free and tree nut free facility. Also good to know that sunflower seeds are grown in a region of the country where peanuts are not grown, eliminating the risk of cross contamination. They also have some great recipes on their site and a store locator.
- WowButter – WowButter is made from soy and is peanut free, tree nut free, gluten free and dairy free. This product is produced in a dedicated facility that manufactures only soy products. They carry both a creamy and crunch version. Search for recipes here and check out the store locator on their site (see top menu and select your region.)
