I love, love, love peanut butter! However peanuts are not in fact a nut, they are a legume so aren’t permitted on the Whole 30 eating regime. So I recently entered the world of nut butters.
You can make nut butters yourself – always advisable – however timely! Or you can buy them from many superstores and health food stores. I’ve been loving the Pip & Nut range* recently, their Almond and Coconut Butter is the thing of dreams!
Nut Butters are perfect for healthy snacking or even for breakfasts! They are a fantastic source of healthy fats and protein which we all need to be healthy and fit.
Pip & Nut are a favourite of mine not only for their taste but because they don’t contain any sneaky ingredients. Each nut butter is made from just roasted nuts and sea salt – there’s no refined sugar, additives or nasty palm oil. They actually just launched their range in little squeezable pouches so they could be used instead of energy gels.
Some of my favourite recipes that include nut butters that I’ve tried (or want to try) are below –
– Apple Chunks with Nut Butter dip
– Peanut Butter Overnight Oats
– Grilled Banana with Cinnamon and Peanut Butter
