To Heaven and Back in one Spoonful: Barney Almond Butter

Today I bring you one of those little gems that one finds while wondering about. I came across Barney Butter and OH MY… live won’t ever be the same.


There are many forms and brands of nut butter out there, but never have I encountered one packed with so much deliciousness. I came across Barney by accident at my local supermarket one day. They only had the little sachets and I needed a practical and ready to go nut butter for my son’s lunchbox so I purchased two little sachets. I was surprised by how non-oily and smooth they were so I contacted, I wanted to know (and taste) more!

We have a nutty love story that involves a random introduction in sunny southern California, a shared passion and dream for “making something positive for the world”, and a splash of serendipitous circumstances that led us to Fresno, and a little almond butter company trying to get off the ground.  We’ve been spreading the love about Barney Butter ever since.

We are BARNEY. Thank you for being a part of our almond evolution.

I received a jar of their outrageously tasty Almond Butter with Cocoa + Coconut. I was looking for a healthy alternative to Nutella, and I found it! Made with the perfect blend of Barney Bare Smooth, chocolate (allergen free, Enjoy Life®) and coconut oil, this blend will remind you of a certain candy bar with coconut, almonds, and chocolate.


I love it! I simply love it! On its own, on toast, with fruit! This is the perfect snack! It is also peanut free, gluten free and non-GMO. It is smooth, with a delicate coconut flavour (nothing overpowering) and it doesn’t accumulate oil on the top like many other nut butter I’ve tried before.


Ingredients: Blanched Roasted Almonds, Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips**, Palm Fruit Oil, Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, Natural Coconut Flavor

All of our almonds are California born and California bred, and our almond butters are made right here in sunny California, surrounded by the beautiful almond trees on our Farmer’s ranch.

They also have other delicious flavours which include the traditional simple but practical plain almond butter ( both crunchy and smooth) to the adventurous Almond with honey and flax and their raw almond butter.


Give it a go! you won’t regret it.

What is your favourite nut butter companion? Fruit? bread? or just on its own?
