Naturally Nutty = Crazy Delicious

Peanut butter is one of those go-to food items for runners. How many articles have you read that recommend you eat the proverbial “Elvis bagel” before a race? (PB & Banana bagel) Countless, right?

For me, the whole field of nut butters is a handy staple. I always have multiple jars of natural nut butters in my house. Almond butter, cashew butter, sunflower seed butter… they’re just a necessity.

Naturally Nutty Pepita Sun Butter
Recently I found Naturally Nutty nut butters at a Great Harvest bread store in Utah. I had seen mention of them on other blogs, but hadn’t found them in regular grocery stores near me. When I saw them I had to buy them, there was no thinking about it… it was a NEED.

And holy cow… these things are so good! They have a ton of flavors, but I only bought two. Now I need to find more! Wow!

The first one I had was a Vanilla Almond Butter. The texture of this is a little grittier than some almond butters, but the taste is incredible. In addition to the almonds and vanilla powder, it contains hemp and flax seeds for an additional nutritional boost.

The next one was so addictive and awesome; the Pepita Sun Seed Butter. It contains Organic Pepita Seeds, Organic Flax Seeds, Organic Sunflower Seeds, Organic Hemp Seeds, Organic Vanilla Powder, Organic Allspice, Organic Cinnamon, Sea Salt. The flavor of this is practically intoxicating, it’s so good and this was one of the first nut butters that I’ve ever been tempted to eat by the spoonful. I dream about this stuff… especially since it’s all gone!

I just had to share with everyone, these things are amazing. I’m on the hunt for additional flavors… like White Chocolate Coconut Peanut Butter, Butter Toffee Peanut Butter, White Chocolate Cherry Almond Butter. They all sound so good!

If you find them, I highly recommend buying some. That is all… have a great weekend!

  1. I am a freak for nut butters, too! I recently ordered from Naturally Nutty as well….I bought the Toffee Peanut Butter, the Vanilla almond butter and the cinnimon almond sunflower butter…I like the Toffee peanut butter, but not sure that I will order the vanilla almond butter again..it just seemed too sweet, too vanilla-y for my taste…I haven’t tried the sunflower butter yet. My favorite Nut butters are Nuttzo and Justin’s Cinnimon almond butter…try em, if you haven’t!

  2. Jill – that looks A.W.E.S.O.M.E. – man, I need to start the search here in Austin.

    I’ve been rocking the “Elvis” before my evening 5K races this summer to great result. Just wish the King would have taken a little better care of his body – he was on to something with the Peanut Butter/Banana combo.
