Happy Friday friends! I hope you had wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends. Grab a spoon and get ready to dig in! I’m kicking off the holiday weekend with a new nut butter review for COnutButter. The company was generous enough to send me all three of their flavors to sample and review.
Who is COnutButter?
This New Orleans Louisiana based business is run by husband and wife team Alexandra and Thomas Pericak. In addition to running her own company, Alex is also a Certified Nutrition Therapy Practitioner, which I think is pretty awesome!
COnutButter comes in 3 delicious flavors; Pure Sea Salt Almond Butter, Maple Cinnamon Almond Butter and Salted Honey Peanut. All of their nut butters are gluten free, paleo (almond varieties), vegan (almond varieties), soy free and keto friendly. With coconut oil as the base, none of their nut butters contain more than 6 ingredients. COnutButter uses only real food ingredients like; roasted almonds and peanuts, organic cold-pressed coconut oil, organic maple syrup, cinnamon and sea salt.
Let’s get started!
Pure Sea Salt Almond Butter
If you prefer your nut butters to be smooth, creamy and slightly drippy(which makes them perfect for recipes!), you’ll love the consistency of all of these nut butters. For those that enjoy a straight up almond butter with just a hint of saltiness, you’ll be sure to enjoy the Pure Sea Salt flavor. With just three ingredients, it’s simplicity allows the roasted almond flavor to shine through.
If you love banana bread, you have to try Alex’s grain-free recipe from their website. The smell coming from my oven was just heavenly! This loaf couldn’t cool down fast enough for me to slice off a generous piece!
Even though the recipe called for nut butter to be swirled inside the batter, that did not stop me from adding more on top of my slice!
Ingredients: Roasted almonds, organic cold-pressed coconut oil, sea salt
Maple Cinnamon Almond Butter
Slightly sweet, creamy and smooth, the Maple Cinnamon Almond Butter was the guest star of my first ever Toast Tuesday party! Made with slow roasted almonds, coconut oil, cinnamon and maple syrup, I’m in love with this sweet and salty combo! The consistency makes it easy to spread on toast, drizzle on yogurt or oatmeal. Or go with my preferred method, open jar, insert spoon! If you enjoy your nut butter on the thicker side like I do at times, place your jar in the fridge for about an hour. This gives it a nice, thick almost pudding-like consistency that can be eaten by the spoonful. Trust me, just do it!
Ingredients: Roasted almonds, organic cold-pressed coconut oil, organic maple syrup, organic maple extract, organic cinnamon, sea salt
Salted Honey Peanut Butter
I love the slight smokiness from the roasted peanuts, the subtle sweetness of the raw honey and the hit of saltiness from the sea salt. Such a delicious balance. There are two word to describe this flavor- absolutely delicious!
I posted this recipe a few weeks ago and thought it was worthy of sharing again, especially with those not on Instagram. These Chocolate Caramel Sea Salt cookies are going to blow your mind! So much chocolatey goodness and the addition of the salted honey peanut butter makes this the perfect combination of sweet and salty! Don’t forget to pin this recipe! It’s a keeper!
