Ever feel like regular old peanut or almond butter isn’t doing it for you? You need something more exciting? Like, say, you need your nut butter to be protein fortified, come in crazy flavours, and taste like cake frosting? (Don’t judge, I look for all of this in my treats). Nuts ‘n More is for you.
These nut butters, which for most people would last for weeks but lasted in my house for only a few days, are expensive – about $15. But if you’re looking for an indulgent treat, you’re getting what you pay for here: this stuff is rich, dense, delicious, and has extra protein for those of you who absolutely have to eat a million grams of protein a day. There are a bunch of amazing flavours but I only had room in my stomach to try two the first time around: Chocolate coconut almond butter and pumpkin spice peanut butter.
Chocolate coconut almond butter: This stuff tastes like pure frosting from heaven. It’s rich, sweet, and coats your tongue from the coconut oil. The pure chocolate and coconut flavours come through strongly; the almond taste and texture is almost an afterthought. This stuff is incredibly addictive, and definitely falls into the indulgent, sweet treat, dessert territory. I ate half the jar in a day and had to throw the rest out lest I put myself into a fat-induced coma. If you have willpower, or if you just DGAF about eating a full jar of nut butter in one sitting, you pretty much need to buy this stuff. I can’t even recommend what it would taste good with because this stuff begs to be eaten with a spoon – although on second thought, dollop this stuff on a waffle and you’ll probably lose your mind for a few minutes.
Pumpkin spice peanut butter: this stuff is also delicious, and slightly less rich. It has an almost crumbly/gritty smooth texture, and the spices came through really nicely – nutmeg, gloves, ginger. I almost couldn’t tell it was peanut butter (vs another nut butter base), probably because of the “’n more” parts: added flax and whey protein, but it doesn’t matter. This would taste delicious on anything. Waffles, again, as well as oatmeal, toast, or maybe baked into some cookies or muffins. If you’re one of those people who tweaks out for six months of the year waiting for the pumpkin spice latte to come back to Starbucks, this is a nice, rich substitute!
