Nuttzo: Review & Recipe
(Above is a picture of the Goody Goody Granola Bars, made with Nuttzo. Recipe here.)
Nuttzo is my new favorite nut/seed butter, as not only is it tasty, but it is loaded with nutrients from a variety of nuts and seeds. It is a butter made with seven different organic nuts and seeds. With so many allergies to peanuts, I appreciate having an alternative nut/seed butter that is peanut free. There are a variety of choices, a few including peanut, as well as peanut free. The options do include the traditional crunchy or smooth, and now even a chocolate option is available!
It is a thick butter, similar to almond butter, but spreads easily. It is a natural nut/seed butter, so there is a bit of separation of oil and butter. The jar is labeled upside down, and I’m thinking this may be the reason – to help ease that natural separation process and make the mixing a little easier.
The flavor is not overpowering, yet there is a slight salty taste enhancing the combination of nuts and seeds. Because there is not one overpowering nut or seed flavor, Nuttzo works well in a variety of applications and well as the traditional jelly sandwich.
For me, the best part of Nuttzo is the powerhouse of nutrition packed in the jar. From selenium, iron, zinc to protein and healthy fats, this is one super butter! It is just brilliant to combine nuts and seeds in one jar, without any dominating nut, seed or flavor. Needless to say, we are big fans in our house, and can’t wait to keep finding (and eating) new ways to use Nuttzo and its nutrition packed goodness!
According the website, Nuttzo was created by a mom on a mission (right there, I’m sold!) This mom, Danielle, together with her husband, adopted their two sons from Ukraine, who were vitamin deficient. So, she worked to create healthy and nutrient dense foods for them, and out of it, Nuttzo was born!
