Both nut butters do have similar nutritional value. Almond butter is slightly healthier than peanut butter because it has more vitamins, minerals and fiber. The both nut butters are roughly equal in calories and sugar, but peanut butter has a little more protein than almond butter. Almond butter is the frontrunner again, once you look more closely at the vitamin and mineral content. It contains nearly three times as much vitamin E, twice as much as iron, and seven times more calcium than peanut butter.
