Start Spreading the News

I could eat a jar of Nutella in one sitting. Only problem is that I may not be able to get up after doing so. Marina Levtov must have thought about this, since her gluten-free Better Butter has about half the calories, total fat and saturated fat per serving than the typical nut butter spread.

Levtov makes three varieties of Better Butter - Nutty Chocolate Chip, Honey Nut Banana and seasonal Maple Pumpkin - in Philadelphia at Greensgrow Farm's Kensington Kitchen Space. While the main ingredient is dry roasted peanuts, these spreads are lower in calories because they also contain ripened fruit or vegetables.

Better Butter is available at Philadelphia specialty markets such as Almanac, Green Aisle Grocery, Milk & Honey and Pumpkin, among other stores. The product can also be found at the farmers markets in University City (Wednesdays) and Fairmount Park (Thursdays).

  1. I purchased the Nutty Chocolate Chip "Better Butter" at Pumpkin Market in Philly, and I have to say that it's delicious. It's not as smooth as a typical peanut butter, but the flavor is delightful. It's great on top of a slice of Rudi's or Udi's toast. I also tried it atop a rice cake and was also pleased.
