This is a sponsored post brought to you by “Naturally More” Probiotic Almond Butter.
If you’re a fan of almond butter, I’ve got two great things to share with you today. First is the Chocolate Almond Butter Cups I made and second is the “Naturally More” Probiotic Almond Butter I used to make them.
You may be wondering what is so special about the almond butter I used. Well, I have the answer for you in one word.
Why just eat plain almond butter when you could eat almond butter with probiotics. Yes, probiotics!
What an awesome idea and I love it!
Not only are you getting 6 grams of vegan protein in each serving, but the extra benefits of probiotics that everyone could benefit from for immune support and to maintain good gut health.
In fact, the probiotics that are used in “Naturally More” Probiotic Almond Butter are 10 x more effective than common yogurt cultures (based on an independent lab study of a simulated gastric environment with a pH of 2.0 for two hours).
When I make my own homemade almond butter, it’s good, but it’s…just almonds.
This almond butter is made with roasted almonds which really brings out the almond flavor and has just the right balance of sweet and salty.
I used about half the container to make this recipe and ate the remaining half straight out of the jar…that’s how good it is!
And the only ingredients in it are: Roasted Almonds, Flaxseed, Coconut Sugar, Sea Salt and Bacillus Coagulans GBI-30 6086 (Probiotics).
This recipe has a chocolate almond butter bottom made with raw cacao powder, an almond butter top that’s sweetened with maple syrup and then they’re topped with raw cacao nibs.
These delicious little snacks are super easy to make and they’re “almost raw”, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, no-bake, paleo-friendly and contain no refined sugar.
When using “Naturally More” Probiotic Almond Butter in a recipe, you don’t have to worry about keeping it “raw” or “no-bake” to prevent damaging the probiotics from heat, because the “GanedenBC” probiotic is a temperature-stable strain that doesn’t require refrigeration. You can learn more about it here.
And,here’s some of my other recipes that you could use the “Naturally More” Probiotic Almond Butter to make: Wild Blueberry Clusters Energy Bites, Crunchy Cacao Nib Chocolate Almond Butter or Almond Power Bars with Chocolate Topping.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
