Almond butter-allowed or not?

Yes, I know, it's made from nuts...but I've been making fat bombs by mixing crunchy almond butter and regular butter-there's less than a tablespoon almond butter in each one, and I only eat two a day: less than a serving.

I should probably make cream cheese clouds instead, but I have another jar of almond butter in the pantry to use up.

Here's what the atkins website says, for the induction phase :

If you have decided to stay in Induction longer than 2 weeks while following the “Fast Track”, you may swap out 3g NC of other foundation vegetables for 3g NC of nuts or seeds.

As a quick guide, 3g NC of nuts or seeds translates to 30 almonds, 3T of macadamia nuts, 2T of peanut butter, 2T pistachios, 4T shelled sunflower seeds. Transition to Phase 2 (Balancing) once you are within 15 pounds of your goal weight. If you are taking the “Slow and Steady Track”, wait to introduce Nuts and Seeds when you reach Phase 2 (Balancing).

First started Atkins April 1, 2002.
Lost 40 pounds back then and maintained for almost 8 years...then carb creep crept. I've always been low carb, but went hard core again in March 2012.
Hey! You don't have to drink all that water!
