You Ask, I Answer: Almond Butter

Any idea how much almond butter you need to eat to get the same benefits in one ounce of almonds?

Oddly, I love almond butter but don't care for whole almonds.

Yes, slightly less than an ounce (or two tablespoons.)

The nutritional profile of an ounce of pure almond butter is equal to 1.1 ounces of whole almonds.

Another way to think about it: it takes approximately 25 or 26 individual almonds to make one ounce/two tablespoons of almond butter.
