We live in a toast-loving, brunch-obsessed age where breakfast means way more than a bowl of cornflakes. We want breakfast to be exciting and to try new things even if that’s during the morning school run. However, making brekkie interesting can be pretty difficult if you have a nut allergy. So, here are five fantastic nut-free spreads that you can spoon into your baked oats and smother on your sourdough…
Wowbutter is a great option if you’re looking for an equivalent to peanut butter. So what is it? It’s soynut butter which is made from roasted soybeans which gives it a nutty flavour. Not only is it nut-free, but it’s also vegan, gluten-free, and a great source of protein. The super butter comes in two forms, creamy and crunchy, which really makes it feel like real peanut butter.
- Sunflower Seed Butter (Sunbutter)
The rival to Wowbutter for the prize of ‘best peanut butter alternative’ is sunflower seed butter. The most popular brand is Sunbutter and its customers swear by it. Its texture is extremely close to peanut butter and it has a distinct nutty flavour, however, you’ll have to decide for yourself whether it’s better than Wowbutter!
This unbelievably tasty spread is very popular and can be found in most supermarkets for that reason! This spread isn’t just great on toast, it’s great for baking and as a porridge topping.

Made with real Belgian chocolate, this spread is seriously rich and chocolatey. Perfect on toast, pancakes, or even straight out of the jar, I promise once you’ve tried this you’ll ask, ‘Nutella who?’. Not to mention, they also offer chocolate orange and mint spreads for something a bit different.
