It’s hard to argue that Miyoko’s makes one of the most delicious vegan butter alternatives. When it comes to straight up buttery goodness, it wins over dairy and non-dairy eaters alike. But it’s expensive and a little too firm in some baking applications. Enter Trader Joe’s Vegan Buttery Spread. It’s similar in flavor and rich mouthfeel, but just a smidgen softer for spreading, cooking, and baking. And for the gourmet taste, it has a more modest price.
Trader Joe’s Vegan Buttery Spread is an Affordable European-Style Alternative
And there’s one more thing Trader Joe’s has over Miyoko’s. It’s generally less allergenic. Both brands do use coconut oil (sorry my coconut-free readers!), but instead of cashews, Trader Joe’s Vegan Buttery Spread uses sheanut butter. Shea nut is still technically a tree nut, but studies have shown it to be a very rare allergen, even for people with tree nut allergies.
In terms of taste, we think this unique formula is a winner. With just a touch of salt and all the richness of butter. But be sure to leave your own rating and review below once you try it!

A perfect vegan sub for butter
This product is tasty, has a nice texture, and even tolerates high heat. We are trying to reduce our dairy intake, and this is one product that will always be in our fridge. Very friendly ingredients, it’s not ‘scary’ like some margarines and other non-dairy butter substitutes.
