I made an amazing discovery, for me a nutbutteraholic, in Sainsburys the other day where I found that they are stocking Pip & Nut! Woohoo!
I’ve been wanting to try these nut butters for so long now. I came across the brand on instagram (@pipandnut) and have been drooling over the nutty creations for ages. I kept meaning to buy them but I was put off having to order them online and pay delivery. Fret no more because now I know exactly where to purchase from now on.
I bought 2 jars of the Honey Cinnamon Cashew Butter and 2 jars of the Coconut Almond Butter…for no other reason than I was really excited.
These both taste AMAZING and brilliantly have no palm oil. I was curious though that the texture is much smoother than the Meridian nutbutters I normally use (and also love) and this is because Pip & Nut has some coconut oil in too…genius!
The morning after the purchase I was so keen to try. I topped my bowl of almond milk porridge with a spoonful of the good stuff along with a little squirt of Choc Shot (a naughty addition but only 14 kcal per tsp.) and it was magnificent!
Would you just look at that swirl…
Now I’ve had a couple of friends say to me recently that nut butters seem interesting but what on earth do you do with them?! I did a post a while back about my love for nut butters here but here’s a little recap of my favourite ways to use it…
How Pum uses nut butter
- spread onto hot dark rye toast
- swirled into porridge
- stuffed in medjool dates
- mixed into greek yoghurt
- as a topping on overnight oats
- spread onto ryvita/buckwheat cakes with a little cinnamon
- as a dip for fruit (cut up apple, pear, persimmon and dunk)
- to add flavour and good fats to smoothies
- drizzled over protein pancakes
I seriously don’t know how people snack without nut butter…like really what do you eat?
