Nut butter is probably one of my favourite things in life.
I love to swirl it through porridge, smear a thin layer on an oatcake with layers of tart sliced apple or just eat it straight from the jar with a spoon… 😉
Nuts & seeds provide numerous health benefits including wonderful nourishing fats, fibre, plant based protein & many vitamins & minerals. These all then contribute to balanced energy release when combined with carbohydrates by regulating the speed with which sugars enter the blood stream.
I always include these beauties in my breakfast & snacks which when purchasing the organic pre-made varieties can become slightly draining on the budget! However making your own in SO simple (as the recipe below shows) & you also have complete control on what goes into your blend, avoiding additional oils, salt etc.
If you aren’t such a fan of either of these nuts simply swap them out for ones you prefer.
