Aaron Spencer says he didn’t have access to a lot of healthy food options. “My breakfast every day was a bacon, egg and cheese sandwich from the bodega,” the Silver Spring resident recalls. In 2018, the now-34-year-old job recruiter became a vegan and soon after launched A-Butter, a terrific-tasting almond butter that comes in a variety of flavors.

ORIGINAL ALMOND BUTTER
MAPLE ALMOND BUTTER
HONEY ALMOND BUTTER
APPLE CINNAMON ALMOND BUTTER
A-Butter's original flavor has a dash of salt and a hint of cinnamon to give it a rich and savory taste! Our original flavor is low in sugar and packs a punch with a bowl of oatmeal.
A-Butter's maple flavor is our most savory one yet! A personal favorite, and is fantastic to add to a snack like a banana.
A-Butter's honey butter is a fan favorite (with apple cinnamon) and is the sweetest almond butter flavor out there! With only 7 g of sugar per serving, honey's natural flavors give a rich flavor to even the most original slices of bread!
A-Butter's apple cinnamon flavor packs a kick of apple that will have you coming back for more! It is our best-seller, and one taste will leave you coming back! Eat it with a rice cake or as snack on its own!

How We Started
At the start of 2018, Aaron Spencer adopted a plant-based vegan diet with the hopes of improving his overall health. In his quest, he made almond butter with a simple food processor and ingredients only found in his kitchen. Soon after, BOOM! A-Butter was born and unique flavors were created. You can catch A-Butter at farmer's markets in Boston!
