Can almond butter and almonds be used in place of the peanutbutter and peanuts??? I can not use peanut because of allergies.

Hi Jo, I have not tried the substitution myself, however, you will find that substituting almonds and almond butter for peanuts and peanut butter in recipes provides a different but delicious taste. Using the same amount of almond butter instead of peanut butter is almost always successful in recipes. Almond butter contains slightly more fat than peanut butter, but this does not usually affect most recipes. I would say give it a try and I hope it works well for you :)
