Allergic to walnuts, pecans, & hazelnuts. Alternatives for recipes calling for any of these?

I am allergic to, of course, the healthiest and most-used nuts in all of cooking - walnuts, pecans, and hazelnuts. I often use almonds in place of any of these when I need to, but am wondering if there are other alternatives besides almonds that might be good. Variety is the spice of life, right?

Pumpkin seeds, pine nuts, sunflower seeds, pistachios, cashews -- basically any nut or seed that isn't one of the offending three.

Peanuts were what I thought of first when I read your question.
