No Cow Fluffbutter is a Nutty High-Protein, Low-Sugar Spread

7

I can’t believe it took me this long to try No Cow Fluffbutter. Especially since I’m a fan of their peanutty bars. Fluffbutter is essentially a peanut butter or almond butter, whipped with dairy-free protein powder, and spiked with low-glycemic sweeteners. Each 2 tablespoon serving has around the amount of calories (180 to 190) and fat (14 to 16 grams) that you would expect in a nut butter. But it also has 10 grams of protein! And despite their sweet nature, each variety has just 1 gram of sugar per serving.

Tasting Notes for No Cow Fluffbutter

At last check, there were four flavors of No Cow Fluffbutter: two peanut butter and two almond butter. We sampled the peanut buttery spreads.

Salted Caramel Sundae (Peanut)

I was surprised by how rich and creamy this is! It has a mild powdery finish from the protein that is only truly noticeable when tasting it straight up. The flavor is sweet, but not too sweet, with underlying caramel notes. The alternative sweeteners stand out just a bit, but I didn’t find them off-putting. There is a bitterness* that emerged as the flavor settled in, I believe from the protein powder. For this reason, I preferred the Fluffbutter on a medium, like sourdough, apples, or even dark chocolate (I feel no guilt!) rather than by the spoonful.

Ingredients – peanuts, protein blend (brown rice protein, pea protein), organic canola oil, xylitol, peanut flour, palm oil*, natural flavor, salt, monk fruit, stevia. *sustainably sourced. Contains peanuts.

Chocolate S’mores (Peanut)

Like the Caramel flavor, this one is thick, but spreadable, with a remarkably smooth mouth feel, and a light powder finish. Both the scent and the taste are a bit reminiscent of s’mores with a milky chocolate vibe and hints of marshmallow. It practically begs for a graham cracker! It also has that bitterness* that my taste buds couldn’t overlook. But when spread on toast or fruit, it mellows out quite a bit. And I like that it gives me an easy way to balance out breakfast when my eats are too low in protein.

Ingredients – peanuts, protein blend (brown rice protein, pea protein), organic canola oil, xylitol, peanut flour, palm oil*, cocoa processed with alkali, natural flavor, salt, monk fruit, stevia. *sustainably sourced. Contains peanuts.

Vanilla Maple Frosting (Almond)

We haven’t sampled this flavor yet, but please comment if you have. It does have very similar ingredients to the Salted Caramel Sundae, but with an almond butter base and different natural flavors.

Ingredients – almonds, protein blend (brown rice protein, pea protein), organic canola oil, xylitol, palm oil*, natural flavor, salt, monk fruit, stevia. *sustainably sourced. Contains almonds.

Brownie Batter (Almond)

We haven’t sampled this flavor yet, but please comment if you have. It does have very similar ingredients to the Chocolate S’mores, but with an almond butter base and different natural flavors.

Ingredients – almonds, protein blend (brown rice protein, pea protein), organic canola oil, xylitol, palm oil*, cocoa processed with alkali, natural flavor, sea salt, monk fruit, stevia. *sustainably sourced. Contains almonds.

*I have read other reviews of No Cow Fluffbutter, and didn’t find mention of bitterness. So I should note that I do tend to be very sensitive to bitter flavors. If you don’t usually taste bitterness in plant-based protein powders, then you probably won’t detect it in these spreads.

  2. I was so excited to find these; many of the flavored nut butters that I see in GNC and other nutrition stores contain whey protein and I don’t like that as I like to keep my diet as vegan as possible. I have tried several of these flavors (they have them in various nutrition stores in the DC area), and I have liked all of them! They’re great for baking (I used the brownie batter flavor in a banana bread) and just with pretzels or something. The protein bars that this company makes are great as well
