Move over peanut butter and jelly. This maple-laced almond butter marries sweet, salty and savory all into one. Perfectly sized in convenient, portable 2-tablespoon squeeze packs, it makes a smart spread for topping an apple or whole-grain crackers. It’s completely free of hydrogenated fats and has only 2 grams of saturated fat, and is surprisingly low in sodium (only 70 milligrams) and sugars (only 3 grams). One squeeze pack provides 200 calories, 17 grams of total fat and 6 grams of protein.
