Plain or Flavored?

by HEAB on August 31, 2010

Still loving on my peaches and blueberries from Saturday’s farmer’s market adventure.


A Dryer Lint smoothie (remember those?) topped with Naturally Nutty Trail Mix


Yesterday’s Breakfast: 1/4 cup rolled oats with 1/4 cup oat bran cooked in water and topped with a Babygold Clingstone peach, blueberries and Naturally Nutty White Chocolate Coconut Peanut Butter. Yes, I said white chocolate coconut peanut butter.

Again, I usually prefer plain nut butters. Give me a jar of nothing but chunky roasted almonds, and I am one happy girl. However, I am loving on some flavored nut butters these days. Maybe it’s a pregnancy thing, I’m not too sure, but I’m just rolling with it and enjoying every single spoonful.

Check out the ingredients in the White Chocolate Coconut Peanut Butter: Dry-Roasted Unsalted U.S.A. Peanuts, Organic Unsweetened Coconut, Organic Cocoa Butter, Organic Powdered Dry Milk, Organic Cane Sugar, Organic Flax Seed, Organic Hemp Seed, Lecithin, Organic Palm Fruit Oil.

I love that peanuts and unsweetened coconut are the first two ingredients, and as far as sweetened peanut butters go, I think this list of ingredients is fantastic. At first bite (straight from the jar of course), I thought it tasted almost too sugary, but stir it into a big bowl of plain oats, and the peanut butter adds the perfect touch of sweetness. Thank you Naturally Nutty!

Do you prefer your nut butters plain or flavored?
