Today I'm sharing a guest recipe post from Sara at Carob Cherub* who dramatically lost weight on a plant-based diet. Thanks Sara for this great substitution for a high fat indulgence. Although nuts are good to eat, most of us find it difficult to resist eating more than a handful. Try this Nutless "Nut" Butter instead.
Why a nutless nut butter?
Most peanut butters have added oil and sugar. Both add empty calories that contribute to weight gain. They also contribute to the addictive taste.
I’ve created a healthy, low fat nut butter recipe that’s absolutely delicious. It’s as addicting as peanut butter. But you can eat as much of this as you want.
I found the need to create this recipe from searching through Pinterest. There are so many recipes that involve peanut butter.
Sure, they’re all delicious. I can’t deny that. But they’re also high fat. And most peanut butters have the dreaded added oil and sugar.
I knew this was a recipe I needed to create. Not just for me and my husband (he’s a peanut butter lover, too). For everybody who wants to stop feeling guilty about enjoying a heaping spoonful of something delicious, nutty and sweet.
