Why You’ll Love Organic Raw Almond Butter
As a pantry staple that can be used in thousands of recipes, including breakfast smoothies, sandwich fillings, savory entrees, and decadent desserts, almond butter is well on its way to rivaling peanut butter as America’s favorite nut spread.
Rich and creamy Artisana Organic Raw Almond Butter is made from 100 percent organic, new-harvest nuts and crafted in small batches for the freshest quality. And without any artificial dyes, preservatives, or high fructose corn syrup, it also packs in the nutritional profile of a superfood.
Just a single serving provides 180 energy-boosting calories alongside seven grams of protein, four grams of dietary fiber, and good amounts of calcium and iron, all of which go a long way to keeping you feeling full and satisfied while also staving off hunger pains for hours between meals.
The indulgent spread is also naturally free of sugar and trans fats, and contains only seven grams of carbohydrates per serving, which makes it an optimal choice for anyone adhering to a Paleo, primal, or other low-carbohydrate lifestyle.
Each jar is shelf-stable and guaranteed to stay fresh without refrigeration for 18 months, even after opening—that is, if it isn’t gobbled up before then!
Almond butter nutrition
In countless research studies, almonds and nuts have been proven to lower bad cholesterol and steady blood sugar levels, promoting a healthy heart and reducing the risk of related disease like diabetes and metabolic syndrome. Pure nut butters, including almond butter, have also been shown to be as effective as eating whole or chopped nuts. In fact, when compared to popular roasted and salted nuts, jarred options may have significantly less sodium and pack many important vitamins and nutrients, such as:
- Magnesium: Each serving of almond butter contains 45 milligrams of magnesium—more than 10 percent of the recommended daily amounts for both men and women. Magnesium is a mineral found in healthy bone tissue and also helps to support the nervous system, muscular system, and metabolism. A lack of magnesium, on the other hand, has been associated with higher rates of heart disease.
- Vitamin E: This vitamin is a fat-soluble antioxidant that protects cells from damage, supports the immune system, repairs muscles, and has been shown to reduce a variety of health problems including heart disease, cancer, and dementia, among others. Every tablespoon of almond butter provides 25 percent of the daily recommended dose of this vital nutrient.
- Fiber: Fiber is an essential dietary compound that promotes digestive health and regularity while also providing a feeling of fullness and lowering cholesterol. Almond butter clocks in at an impressive four grams of fiber per serving.
- Healthy fats: Of the 16 grams of fat in each serving of almonds, 15 of them are monounsaturated fats, the “good kind” that increases HDL cholesterol and supports heart health. Fat also has the added bonus of making people feel fuller for longer than carbohydrates.
- Calcium: With 75 grams of calcium per ounce, almond butter contains enough of the mineral to rival a glass of milk (which only has 300 milligrams per every eight-ounce serving). Calcium helps the body build healthy bones, hair, and teeth, and supports heart, muscle, and nerve functions. There is also growing evidence that suggests it can protect against cancer and diabetes.
- Iron: Iron deficiency and related anemia are common afflictions, which can result in fatigue, weakness, and brittle nails, among other symptoms. One tablespoon of almond butter, however, contains 8 percent of the daily recommended amount for men and 3 percent of the amount recommended for women, making it a great addition to a regular diet.
Almond butter vs. peanut butter
While peanut butter is an undisputed classic and shares many of the same health benefits as almond butter (for example, they are both a great source of protein), almond butter has significantly more to offer in terms of vitamins and minerals including:
- Nearly twice as much magnesium
- Twice as much iron and fiber
- Three times as much vitamin E
- Seven times more calcium
Additionally, almond butter outranks peanut butter in a number of other healthful applications. One of the most important is allergies. Anyone with a peanut allergy must avoid them at all costs, which makes almond butter an appropriate (and delicious) substitute. Almond butter also has an alkalizing effect on the body’s pH balance where peanut butter has an acidic effect. A diet rich in alkalizing foods supports a healthy immune system, bones, and organs.
Almond butter recipes
As one of the most versatile cooking tools, almond butter can be used in smoothies, cookies, breakfast staples, even dinner entrees. Here are some of Thrive Market’s favorite ideas.
If you want a protein-packed breakfast staple that will keep you feeling full and focused all morning, spread almond butter on whole grain or gluten-free toast. Add in some special extras like apple, thyme, honey, and sea salt for even more flavor and crunch.
Almond butter is a versatile ingredient that works just as well for dinner as it does for breakfast and lunch. Its high levels of protein, vitamins, and minerals makes it a perfect ingredient to add to raw vegan recipes, including this Thai-inspired dish that swaps carrots for noodles and has just the right amount of sweetness from coconut aminos and raw honey.
Almond butter is constantly praised by nutritionists and doctors for its health benefits, but that doesn’t mean it’s just a dry health food. Artisana Organic Raw Almond Butter can also add a velvety richness to indulgent treats like these dark chocolate–coated cups that rival even store-bought candy.

Hard to find item at a good price
Artisana is one of the better raw organic almond butters I've tried and Thrive has it at a very competitive price.
This almond butter is great! I love eating it with an apple. Such a great source of healthy fat and protein.
Raw almond butter
To dry and the tast is not to good
Love this product, my favorite unless you grow your own almonds!
Great Nut Butter
I have used this brand for awhile. I like the crunchy even better. This is hard to get now as grocery stores are only carrying nut butter with sugar in it.
- C Jay Page
Affordable Almond Butter
Have loved this product for years. Thrive consistently offers if at a lower price than any store or other online source that I have researched.
Thank you for allowing me to indulge my evening habit!
Not my favorite almond butter
I appreciate that it is organic, and contains ONLY almonds, but the flavor is not great. I much prefer the Once Again brand. Perhaps the fact that Once Again is lightly toasted, and Artesana is Raw is the difference I notice.
Organic Raw Almond Butter is yummy and fulfilling. Tastes great by itself, on apples, or in a smoothie. Try the cashew nut butter as well in this brand.
This is the real deal. Like biting into a toasted almond bar good.
Delicious Almond butter
This is so far my favorite almond butter. Thick yet creamy. I love that it is organic and raw, something I always look for. Would highly recommend.
Best almond butter
This is the best raw organic almond butter. Highly recommend it!
Raw and no sugar! It's great...
Artisana almond butter
wonderful, so much better,to me, than peanut butter- love that it is organic and appreciate the goodness and nutrition of almonds
- Vicki Gesssford
I'd been making my own organic almond butter. This is great and so worth the price. I use it almost daily.
This is the BEST almond butter. I'm hooked. Love that it's raw and doesn't have all the 'extra stuff' in it. I love the grainy texture and it's just SO GOOD! It may seem a bit pricey but you get what you pay for and it's MUCH cheaper here than other places (almost $23 on the big A).
If you have diverticular disease and have been instructed not to eat nuts unless they are in the form of a nut flour or smooth nut butter, sadly, this delicious almond butter is not for you. It is a chunky nut butter. And the label states that it may contain pieces of shell.
I am very disappointed with Artisana's raw almond butter. I've tasted it plain twice, and I've also put it in smoothies. I don't mind the gritty texture, it's the very strong and bad aftertaste that turns me off. I'm not going to be able to eat any more of it, which makes this product a very expensive mistake.
I've been wanting to try Artisana's raw pecan butter, which is currently out of stock, but now I'm not so sure I will ever order it because of my experience with the almond butter.
BTW, I have tried Artisana's raw cashew butter and raw coconut butter, both of which are excellent.
This is the best Almond Butter I have ever tasted. Hard to find organic and RAW on the shelves in the stores.
Best Almond Butter
I eat almond butter for breakfast every morning and have tried a lot. This is the best I've had by far. Loooove it.
The Brand I Trust
This is my go to almond butter. No sweeteners, raw, delicious. I use it in my smoothies, on toast, and anything else that calls for almond butter. Their walnut butter is great on apple slices. All their nut butters are good. The only brand I eat...
- Darlene Barnes
Artisana raw almond butter
This is the best almond butter I've tried, definitely worth the price!
Artisana Organic Raw Almond Butter
Delicious! We love to put it on our apple slices!
For a great Smoothie
I bought this to go in my smoothies but this is also very good with fruit. I didn't know that almond butter could be so good. Thanks for the great prices.
This brand is my all round favorite. So delicious you can eat with a spoon right out of the jar.
Best Almond Butter
Artisana Organioc Almond Butter, best tasting on the market, hands down
I never knew almonds could taste so pure and fragrant.
BEST ALMOND BUTTER ON THE MARKET ! NO EXTRA SALT OR SUGAR. WORTH THE EXTRA COINS
Organic Raw Almond Butter
I love this brand. I basically eat almond butter everyday. It's a staple for me.
I've tried several raw almond butters and this is by far the best! It has a great almond flavor that's missing in others.
Artisana organic raw almond butter
This is so delicious versus another organic creamy raw butter, that was lightly roasted. The later brand I ate for 9 months it was always separating, and I always stirred before using. Artisana needs no stirring, and has a satisfying almond butter taste in smoothies or by itself with apples or cut up raw vegetables.
A real surprise
very unique as compared to all other almond butters I have tasted - rich, full and not overly oily
My Favorite Almond Butter
I love Artisana products because they are made with raw ingredients. And their almond butter is my favorite. For me, breakfast is gluten free toast with Artisana Coconut Oil and Artisana Almond Butterand a banana or other fruit.
This is the only brand of almond butter I use and I have tried many. Good flavor and consistency. Highly recommend!
This is the best raw almond butter I have found to date. It is so fresh tasting - as if it's just be ground. This is also the best price at which I can find it. My local health food store wanted nearly twice as much as on Thrive.
Artisana Almond Butter Reveiw
This stuff is great tasting. The only thing that would make it better is if it were smoother (like the cashew butter is).
Great taste much better than other brands. No
after taste or oily look.
I love this particular almond butter. no refrigeration needed so stays spreadable and great spread on a small piece of dark chocolate in lieu of some decadent sugary dessert. worth the money.
A little salt please
I'm happy to have found a (slightly) more affordable organic almond butter. If only it had a little salt in it...
It's made in a peanut free facility, so it's great for our child with a peanut (but not treenut) allergy. The only ingredient is almonds. Great product.
I have tried several raw almond butters and this is , by far, the best. It has a real great almond flavor that is lost by some other brands. And the price at Thrive is wonderful!
The Best Almond Butter Ever!!
I've tried them all but this is absolutely the best almond butter ever!! It's a challenge for me to find raw and organic in my little town so I'm thrilled that Thrive Market has this product available for us all to enjoy!!
My favorite Nut Butter brand. Truly nut-only and the only brand I'll consider these days.
Artisana Almond Butter
Absolutely the best almond butter out there. Creamy, rich and best of all raw!
The only RAW Almond Butter!
I'd been reading a lot about Almonds in the US being sold as "raw" when they were, in fact, pasteurized. Apparently it's a law here that all Almonds must be pasteurized before going to market. After a little digging, I found out how Aratisana processes theirs, and they are by far the best option! They use a process which applies minimal heat, and doesn't warm the meat of the nut!
Science aside, this is a great almond butter! I spread it on my sprouted toast each morning. Sometimes I even just eat it by the spoonful when I don't feel like getting almonds in my teeth!
- Erick Castro
Raw, fresh, and flavorful!
This is definitely worth every penny! I used to make my own almond butter from raw almonds and begrudgingly I have to admit that this is better than anything I've ever blended at home. However, I am happy that it saves me so much time in prep and cleanup to just buy this instead of making my own. It's thick and has a very fresh almond flavor--so satisfying. Even with no added sugar, the mild sweetness of the almond definitely comes through. It has an even consistency, spreads well, and is so smooth, especially compared to other almond butters that keep the skin on. I try to ration it so that one jar lasts at least two weeks, but it's just so tasty. I like to eat it right out of the jar with some dark chocolate. Perfect midnight snack!
- Lucille H.
Great on Rice Cakes!
This is one of the snacks that I use to get through the day! As a college student, money is tight and so is food. I warm a little of this butter in the microwave and spread it on a rice cake. Very yummy!
The contents of this jar are much simpler than Jiffy or the like. Less salt, sugar and all those undesirable things. The taste is like no other- I wish they made all the spreads I eat. My only desire is a plastic jar- glass breaks to easy.
- Gustavo Lucas
A little oily, but delicious!
I recently made the switch from peanut butter to almond butter. I've been reading of all the health advantages associated with it's consumption so I wanted to find one with great values. This definitely took the cake from the competitors. It is organic, cholesterol free, low in sodium, high in protein, among many others.
The two major changes that impacted me from the peanut butter transition was the price and the consistency. Thrive Market does offer the best price but overall still expensive. As far as texture, even after stirring it was more oily than what I am used to. Still satisfied with my purchase!
- Lance M.
Don't let a high price on almond butter stop you, it's worth it! I was in the same boat trust me, but this 100% raw organic almond butter is amazing. I've tried just about every almond butter out there and even tried making my own and this is definitely the best one yet.
The serving size suggests 2 tablespoons and there are 14 servings per jar. I try to only use 1 tablespoon because the taste is so good that's all you really need so it lasts much longer this way. I must say it's often very hard to stop after just 1 tablespoon but I definitely recommend trying!
The best ever!
I absolutely love this almond butter! No other brand compares.
This is the almond and the skin which doesn't taste as good as without the skin and not spreadable. I mistakenly bought more than one jar. I don't know why Artisana does not vacuum seal their jars. The lid was not even closed tightly. I won't buy this again.
Love this! I looked for raw organic almond butter at Sprouts and it cost $30! So glad to find it here!
Best Almond Butter
This is by far my most favorite almond butter!
I eat this by the spoonfuls. No added sugar, not added nothing--just like eating almonds without the work of chewing them all up. Tastes natural and only problem is I eat too much!!
- Thrive User
I keep buying this to make a healthy version of a cookie recipe -- almond dark chocolate chip cookies for my husband. However that never happens. It is more convenient and just as tasty (I assume) to eat the product out of the jar or to toss a tablespoon into a smoothie. Also, I like the fact that the product is organic and raw.
