Raw Almond Butter Amazingness

Like most people, I want to make the better choice when possible. I eat a lot of almond butter. Should I make my own, probably. Have I? No. So I buy mine. I was thinking that all almond butters were created equal. But it seems to me that some are more equal than others. A lot of the store bought almond butters actually contain dry-roasted almonds (just look at the label). The commercial roasting of almonds actually breaks down the good fat and produces free radicals. Free radicals: Bad.

Then while shopping at Superstore, I found a ‘raw’ version. I thought, I’ll give this a try. I know it’ll be better for me but what about the taste? HOLY COW!! It’s out of this world.  Seriously, it’s so good that when my friend Pow came over last night, I gave her a spoonful (just to make sure I wasn’t the only one loving the stuff) and needless to say, I had to take the jar away from her. She claims it’s the best nut butter she’s ever had too. So there you go folks. Give it a try. Sooooo worth it.

    1. I think the words “Get IT away from me or I’ll eat the whole thing” and “I’m sorry, I’m so sorry I’m eating all your almond butter” sums it up. lol. You do know that I’ll always share my almond butter with you, my sweet, dear friend.

    Yum! I love Raw Almond Butter. I buy the “Nuts to you” brand. Soooo good! I eat it over a rice cake and a bit of maple syrup or organic fruit jam. Best snack ever!

  2. check the type of salt it contains (himalyan is the best for you) and how much per serving. i always make my own there is always something hidden in it. Plus if it was fully raw it would be in the refridgerated section not on the shelf with an clear expiration date.

    1. Oh absolutely, homemade is the better way to go, but sometimes not always possible. And the MaraNatha brand actually has no salt at all but I agree, one always has to keep an eye on that. Thanks.
