Spreadin’ The Love with Maple Nut Butter

recipe by:  Laura Mierzwa, Registered Holistic Nutritionist and Culinary Nutrition Expert

 

 

Get busy in the kitchen this Valentine's Day and make a batch of this yummy nut butter that will leave your date wanting more. Healthy fats make for a delicious, nutritious, chocolatey spread! Some of the conventional chocolate-flavored nut spreads contain a whopping 55% sugar, plus a whole slew of other questionable ingredients that are best to leave aside! Did we mention that our Maple Nut Butter is gluten, dairy, soy and preservative free?

 

Ingredients

1 cup hazelnuts (soaked for 12 hours)

¼ cup hemp seeds

¼ cup raw cacao powder

¼ cup coconut oil

¼ cup maple syrup

¼ tsp Himalayan salt

¼ tsp cinnamon

 

 

Directions

  1. Place all ingredients in your food processor and process until a creamy consistency is reached.
  2. Use for spreading on your favorite gluten free bread or a dip for crunchy apples!
  3. Store in an airtight glass container in the fridge, for up to one week.
  4. Double the recipe... it won’t last long!

    Do you melt the coconut oil first?
