Friday Food Finds – COnutButter Review

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!

 CONUTBUTTER SEA SALT ALMOND BUTTER

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!

  1. Okay so right when I read the review post title, I cringed a little (you know me and coconut, hahahaha); but I’m VERY relieved I kept reading and found out it’s just coconut oil, not full-on coconut flesh and/or shreds – AWESOME! Love that the nut butters are drippy; and I’m Team Almond Butter for eating straight-up (but then Team Peanut Butter for ice cream… I mean, come on now). And that cookie recipe! Heavenly mix of rich chocolate & caramel (and I’m not totally mad about the salty nature of the caramel – no doubt it works perfectly in these cookies). HAPPY FRIDAY, DEAR WENDY! xo

    • Hi Liz! I have to admit, I thought of you as I was writing this up! Coconut oil is their main ingredient, not a shred of coconut to be found! I love a drippy nut butter as well especially for baking and dipping! Hope you are enjoying the holiday weekend and all the online shopping! xo

  2. Very cool that Alex is a Certified Nutrition Therapy Practitioner. I always love hearing about the companies from you. You sure do your research so thank you for sharing with us! I’ll have to check them out, you are right-these would make great gifts!

    • Thanks Jo! I always thinks it’s cool to share how people started or even some light background on the company. I’ve loved using these in recipes,the consistency is just perfect! I hope you check them out! I love supporting small business!
