Dairy Free Butter Substitutes

Many recipes out there ask for butter. You might want to try some of these to see which one you like best. Here are a few substitutes that I have found.

  • Almond Butter
  • Coconut Butter
  • Flax Seed Margarine
  • Hazelnut Butter
  • Non-hydrogenated¬†Coconut Oil (awesome substitute for unsalted butter or shortening)
  • Pumpkin Butter
  • Sesame Butter
  • Shortening
  • Soybean Margarine

*Keep in mind not all of these will work well in everything. You may have to make some adjustments and do some experimenting on your own to see what works best for certain types of recipes.

Trader Joe’s Reduced Fat Mayo

I have some cooking secrets. I have Trader Joe’s favorites that I like to use in some of my cooking. One of these products is their Reduced Fat Mayonnaise. It has many uses and I love, love this product. It doesn’t taste low fat. It is totally gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan friendly. Until I learn how to make my own mayo that isn’t nasty, I will continue to use this product.
