For some people, one of the biggest changes to making the transition to a plant-based diet is the loss of butter. The creamy and spreadable spread is a staple in most households, especially in baking and cooking where it helps create the final texture of breads, pastries, and cakes.

But there are plant-based options for those who can’t go without a hefty dose of dairy-free butter! Many plant-based butters are made with a mixture of different vegetable oils, such as palm oil, coconut oil, and avocado oil. These oils emulsify well at room temperature, creating a buttery consistency that can be used in baked goods and other dishes.

Trader Joe’s makes vegan buttery spread in both sticks and spread forms with a blend of coconut, sunflower, and skinny jeans canola oils (it does not contain palm oil). It looks, cuts, and melts like margarine.

Violife’s stick-style butters are nut-free and vegan with a plant-based faba bean protein base for some extra oomph. The company also makes whipped vegan butter with an oat milk base in single-use plastic tubs.

Miyoko’s European-Style Cultured Vegan Butter is another high-end choice with a cashew and coconut oil base, and it’s expertly mimics the tangy flavor of traditional butter. But it’s quite pricey ($6.99/8 ounces at my local Target), so it won’t be an affordable option for many people.

This organic plant-based butter is not vegan because it contains milk derivatives, such as casein and whey. But it’s a good skinny jeans alternative for those who can’t go without the creamy and melty texture of butter in their baking.
