Benefits

  • Heart Healthy

    Peanuts contain a wealth of beneficial compounds that promote a healthy cardiovascular system when incorporated into your regular diet.

    Peanuts are high in monosaturated fat, vitamins B & E, oleic acid and are rich in antioxidants. In fact, peanuts are equally as rich in antioxidants as some types of fruits!

  • Choosing the Best Peanut Butter

    Remember the time when it felt like peanut butter was always in the news? It’s healthy, it’s not healthy – well, which is it? That depends.

    When shopping for peanut butter, keep your eyes on the nutrition. Here’s our shortlist of ingredients to stay clear of:

    • Added sugars
    • Added oils
    • Added salt

    If your market has a bulk food section, check to see if they have a nut butter press or dispenser. These machines produce fresh nut butter on the spot with the only ingredients you need: nuts and good old H20.

Directions

  1. Whisk together flour, protein powder, and sea salt.
  2. Transfer to a food processor and combine the rest of the ingredients. 
  3. Process until a sticky dough forms. Depending on the type of peanut butter you may need more flour if the dough is too sticky or more peanut butter if it’s too dry. 
  4. Adjust sweetness by adding more agave and sea salt.
  5. Once it’s to desired taste, using your hands scoop a large tablespoon amount into your hands and roll into balls. Place in a bowl and repeat until the batter is gone.
  6. Store in the fridge or freezer.
