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!
