Reviewing one of my favorite things… peanut butter!

I recently ordered a few jars of Naturally Nutty peanut butter online, and one of them that interested me was the Honey Roasted Cinnamon Peanut Butter. C’mon, how good does that sound!?!?

According to the jar, it’s “made with Flax Seed” and “Hemp Seed” and has “omega-3 (ALA): 370 mg per svg. [serving]”. So, aside from the honey, there was cinnamon, peanuts, and some great nutrition facts!

I opened the jar, and noticed very minimal oil on top (hardly any)- a good sign for me already. As much as I love the natural peanut butters, I’m not a huge fan of stirring and stirring a jar of nut butter to get it to set. I took a spoonful, and here’s what it looked like.

I LOVED the consistency of this peanut butter. Not runny, but not stiff. Very thick and almost hearty, and while it wasn’t super smooth, it wasn’t chunky either. It stated it was “smooth” on the jar, but I would say it was more of an inbetween.

As I opened the jar, it had a nice fresh cinnamon smell to it. I tasted a bit, and unfortunately wasn’t as happy as I thought I would be. It kind of had an overpowering cinnamon flavor to it, without enough sweetness to back it up. In fact, where was the honey? All I tasted was peanut butter and cinnamon. It did have a rather delicious peanut butter flavor- thick, rich, just like peanuts you’d eat out of a bowl. But it wasn’t sweet, and I was disappointed.

Overall 3 stars. A good peanut butter, but not what I was expecting. Where’s the honey!?!

Naturally Nutty nut butters

Author: Healthnuttxo

I’m sure everyone on bloggie world has heard of Naturally Nutty! I know I read favorable reviews from my fellow bloggers, so I was super excited when Katie from Naturally Nutty sent me 2 of her jars to try out!

The company was founded by  a vegetarian mother who wanted to create the “ultimate” peanut butter. She now has more than just peanut butter, and adds organic hemp and flax seeds for additional health benefits. They also have a special no stir formula, which creates a rich and creamy texture without the added messy oils. The nut butters come in a variety of flavors, ranging from chocolate cherry peanut butter to cinnamon vanilla sunflower butter! They have flavors to suit the palate of almost anyone’s taste buds. And, of course, all of her nut spreads are all natural, made with organic ingredients, and contain no artificial colors or flavors, preservatives, or trans fats. How’s that for a nut butter!?

I was fortunate enough to be sent the Butter Toffee and White Chocolate Coconut Peanut Butters, which I was super excited to try. They came in cute (but too small for a nut butter lover like myself 😉 ) jars that were 15 oz each. Obviously, upon arrival I set both my jars down on the table, took out some spoons and things to spread them on, and dug in!

Starting with the Butter Toffee Peanut Butter, it was very creamy in texture. It had a light brown color to it, and when I smelled it, I could smell just a hint of sweetness followed by the yummy peanut smell I have grown to love. There was a little bit of oil on top, but not nearly as much as other brands, so I just gave it a quick stir. The taste was out- of- thisworld. This literally is the definition of heavenly dessert in a jar. Seriously-. It had a buttery, sweet flavor, almost like buttery caramel (or toffee, I suppose), with a brown sugar flavor as well. The perfect combo of sweet & salty, it also had a teensy bit of a crunch from the flax seeds and hemp seeds. This flavor gets 5 stars for taste 😀

White Chocolate Coconut- this one was also good, but not as good as the Butter Toffee.  It wasn’t as sweet, and had a rather strong coconut flavor, leaving an especially strong coconut aftertaste. I honestly didn’t really taste the white chocolate part of the nut butter, perhaps too subtle, but it was rather just a lightly sweetened coconut peanut butter to me. I think I would have liked it better if it was  a bit sweeter, and maybe had just a hint of salt to it to bring out some of the flavors. It was still very good, however, and went especially well on a hearty piece of Whole Grain bread. This one gets  4 stars for taste.

Overall, Naturally Nutty is a brand I think is GREAT! I also like that there is more fiber in these spreads than some flavored nut butters as well.
