Tasting attributes: Savor a soft sweetness with the powerful punch of roasted peanuts, intensifying the naturally nutty flavor of the butter
With so many brands of peanut butter on the grocery store shelf, how do you choose the best blend? Over-processed and overwhelming, you might as well make your own. In just five minutes, Above Average Peanut Butter is created with the guarantee that you are consuming solely peanuts and grapes. No added preservatives, white sugar, or artificial sweeteners! By adding Grape Nectar, ignore the irritations of the separation process that stops so many of us from buying all-natural peanut butter. Instead, find the perfect balance of sweet and salty using entirely pure ingredients.
We suggest using unsalted, dry roasted peanuts and adding a couple pinches of sea salt to enhance the rich flavors of the peanuts. Substitute with any nut of choice to satisfy your personal buttery cravings. A little Grape Nectar is all that is needed to secure the nut oils from separating, but it is up to you to determine how sweet you like your butter. Grape Nectar adds a new, subtle character to the average spread. Add as much of our sugar alternative as you see fit. Have fun and play around with it!
Nut butters are a great way to add plant-based protein and healthy fats into your diet. However, many store-bought nut butters are loaded with artificial sweeteners that not only increase artificial sugar content, but add unnecessary saturated fats. Making homemade peanut butter allows you to determine exactly what is in your favorite spread. By using Grape Nectar and only peanuts, Above Average Peanut Butter is a great way to incorporate more protein in your diet, maintaining your energy for longer throughout the day with none other than California grapes.
The high calorie count is only because nuts are naturally high in calories which is not at all a bad thing! As long as you monitor your peanut butter consumption and do not go crazy and eat the whole batch (we know this is hard, but totally believe you can do it), do not worry about the calories. A little goes a long way.
Delicious in oatmeal, yogurt, smoothies, on toast and bananas, there are endless ways to enjoy this #SecretSauce!
