How to identify the natural peanut butter?
What to look for while buying PB?
- View the list. Peanut should always be the first ingredient and highest in quantity.
- The fewer the ingredients, the better the butter!!
- Avoid Sugars / sweeteners, in the form of evaporated cane juice, corn syrup solids, high fructose corn syrup, molasses, honey, etc.
- Avoid ‘Hydrogenated oils’ as they are used to improve texture but add unhealthy trans fat, even in small amounts.
1 cup (120g) dates, without stone
¾ cup (60g) almond meal
½ cup (30g) desiccated coconut
2 tbsp. chia seeds
2 tbsp. coconut oil, melted
1 tbsp. natural peanut butter
Place all ingredients in a high-speed blender or food processor and blitz until everything is well combined and chopped to small pieces.
Using your hands, form 10 balls about the size of a walnut. Place them in the fridge to chill for at least 1 hour so that they become more solid.
Store in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
