You'll Go Nuts For This Nut Butter
One of my favourite things in the world is peanut butter, I can eat it right out of the jar it's so good. Unfortunately the popular name brands are terrible for you with added unhealthy oils, sugar and salt. I have taken to not purchasing it but hadn't found an alternative that filled that void until now. This Nuts & Seeds from Ecoideas is high quality and tastes great, a tasty alternative to peanut butter. Best of all it's organic, vegan, gluten free and 100% pure. I love that nothing is added so it's still considered a whole food and I can happily add it to my diet. It contains stone ground cashews, almonds, sunflower seeds, hazlenuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds and chia seeds, yum! It's a great source of iron, calcium, and fibre and find that when I get my vitamins from natural foods my body absorbs them better than needing to take supplements.
One of my favourite foods to make are Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins but I always feel like they are missing something. I found this great 1 muffin recipe where you can just make 1 muffin. I decided it would be a great way to try out my new Nut and Seed Butter and it was amazing! It added moisture and creamy nuttiness that I was missing when I make my usual recipe. I will be making a full batch of these this weekend as I know they are going to be a huge hit in our house and completely guilt free since we aren't using the store bought peanut butter. I would defiantly recommend this to anyone looking to try a healthier alternative.
