There are few things I love more than nut butters. All of them. I have yet to meet a nut butter that I didn’t like. So obviously I was thrilled when Naturally More sent me some of their products to try. I was beyond excited when I opened up my package to find…
Almond Butter, Peanut Butter and Hazelnut butter! Only my three favorites! Not to mention they came in these adorable and convenient to-go pouches (they also have jars). They’re perfect because they’re re-sealable and the perfect size to toss in your bag. They’d be absolutely perfect for hiking, road trips, a day out or even just to take to work for when you get those mid-day cravings. You just knead them a bit to mix the oil in and they are good to go! They squeeze out super well and have a good consistency and texture. So, we know they’re convenient and easy to take on the go…but how are they taste-wise and nutrition-wise. Well, don’t you even worry. I’m here to fill you in.
One word. A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. For real. They are all fantastic. My favorite was the hazelnut butter, not surprising because I’m all about all things nutella/hazelnut flavored but the almond and peanut butter were also really great. They have a rich, creamy taste and like I said above, the consistency and texture are on point. I like that you can re-knead the packages if you need/want to keep everything mixed together just right. I love adding these nut butters to…almost everything. One of my all-time favorite go-to’s is the sample nut butter + banana. Always a win in my book and these are the perfect, delicious and healthy addition to pair with fruit, veggies or top off you waffles/pancake, toast, sweet potatoes…the possibilities are endless.
This is where I got really, really excited. Their almond and peanut butters include FLAX SEEDS. How cool is that? Flax seeds are packed with omega-3 fatty acids to help improve heart health. They also contain lignans, which have antioxidant qualities and FIBER which helps with gut heath and can help keep you satisfied longer, aiding in weight loss/maintaining a healthy weight as well as heart health benefits. Flax has also been indicated to possibly reduce the risk of certain cancers and diabetes among various other disease. So, yeah…pretty fantastic.
For those that have dietary restrictions or concerns. These nut butters are…
- Dairy free
- All natural
They also contain NO trans fat…which is awesome because, do you know what the daily recommendation for trans fat is? ZERO grams, yep…a big goose egg. Of course sometimes you’re going to get some in your diet and that’s okay (moderation) but it’s awesome that there isn’t any in these nut butters because believe me, you’re going to want to eat them on the daily.
And of course nut butters are an awesome source of protein and healthy fats. Adding them to a post-workout meal or snack, like a post-workout shake/smoothie, helps to repair and rebuild muscle. It’s important to consume protein post-workout and these nut butters are a great way to do just that!
They use great ingredients. These are natural nut butters and don’t include any artificial ingredients. They include probiotics, which again help improve gut health and support your immune system! The ingredient list is short and simple, just the way we want it! For example the almond butter ingredient list is:
Ingredients: Natural California Almonds, flax seeds, coconut sugar, sea salt, Organic Inulin and bacillus coagulans GBI-30 6086 (probiotics).
Essentially 5 ingredients. Pretty great! And the peanut and hazelnut butters are very similar – you can check them all out on their site. Calories, fat, protein, carbs and sugars are similar to what you’d find in other natural nut butters. About 180-190 calories for a 2 Tbsp. serving (WHY does the serving size of nut butters have to be so small? My eternal struggle…)
If you check out their recipes page here they have links to lots of yummy recipes for you to make that include their nut butters. I think I’m going to need to try this Grilled Strawberry, Banana & Almond Butter Sandwich ASAP. Oh. My. YUM.
They also have a coupon code there that will save you 20% on your order! You can check out where to buy Naturally More nut butters in stores here.
If you can’t tell by now. I’m a huge fan of these nut butters. They’re tasty, healthy, have added health/nutrition benefits that a lot of other nut butters (even the natural ones) don’t and they are rocking it with the pouch design! One of my favorite features. You know me, I won’t tell you I love a product unless I really do. So…try it out for yourself, you don’t want to miss out on these!
