Go Nuts!

Ever wondered how much protein was in different kinds of nuts? Here's an easy breakdown of protein by mass for different nuts and legumes both raw, and as nut butter!


Peanuts: 23.6%

Peanut Butter: 25.1%

Cashews: 21.0%

Cashew Buter: 17.6%

Almonds: 21.1%

Almond Butter: 21.0%

Walnuts: 30.1%

Walnut Butter: No one’s made it yet!

As an example, cashews are 21 percent protein by mass, so one pound of cashews would contain 95 grams of pure protein! (about 3.35 ounces)
