MaraNatha Nut Butter Giveaway

I recently received a fabulous surprise from MaraNathat Nut Butters, who sent me a package of their nut butters to try…let’s just say I had a wee bit of fun recipe testing with these tasty nut butters…

Macadamia Nut Butter

Sunflower Seed Butter

Honey Almond Butter

Organic Peanut Butter

Cashew Butter

My favorite nut butter? Hmmmm…that’s a tough one; I’d have to say it’s a close tie between the Macadamia Nut Butter and the Honey Almond Butter…they ‘knocked my socks off’ and I created delicious recipes from breakfast pancakes to dinner peanut sauce to decadent desserts…

There’s something special about nut butters…they’re not just for your typical PB&J…they compliment any dish and keep your meals exciting, as well as your taste buds yearning for more!

My favorite MaraNatha creation was born last night in my tiny lil’ kitchen…

I created a Macadamia Nut Butter Cookie that’s Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free

  • Enjoy!

    Honestly, I have not tried any nut butters. I know. I should be very ashamed. I’m sort of afraid to buy any b/c I hear how fantastic and addicting they are. So, alas, no recipe. However, if I were to win a macadamia nut butter, I think your recipe would be the first one I’d make. How’s that for an answer ;-)

    I have never tried MaraNatha nut butters! My favourite recipe though is simply peanut butter and icing sugar mixed together, formed into balls and then dipped in chocolate and if you like, coated in nuts or coconuts!

    I LOVE maranatha nut butters…I recently discovered the no-stir chunky almond butter, and I seriously put it on EVERYTHING!

    My favorite (or I should say new favorite) nut butter recipe are the Oaties made by HEAB…sooo:
    toasted oatmeal, nut butter of your choice, agave nectar/maple syrup, chopped nuts/chocolate chips, mixed together and baked for 10 minutes. AMAZING.

    Ive never actually baked with nut butters….. typically I love them in a bowl of oatmeal or straight off the spoon! (Not much of a recipe I know, but so, so good)!

    I love to stir nut butter into oatmeal, which I have almost every morning! I toast rolled oats in butter, then add boiling water and let them cook. When they’re done, I add milk, a pinch of salt, and whatever nut butter I have on hand. Sometimes half of a sliced banana, too. Mmm!

    What a wonderful giveaway – yippie, I have always wanted to try this brand of nut butter. I love nut butters on warm toast so it gets all gooey and then I sprinkle on ground flax seed and top with some homemade applesauce – yummy. I also eat straight from the spoon!!!

    I love to mix equal parts nut butter (almond is my current fave, but I’d LOVE to try macadamia), milk and cream cheese and pour the resulting icing on a bowl of hot oats or use it as a dip for fruit.

    I actually make a great sauce from a vegetarian cookbook that is peanut butter, cilantro, and a little vinegar. It sounds weird, but it’s awesome!

    I just found your blog today and I’m really enjoying reading your posts!

    I love Maranantha…and the best nut butter recipe is, hands down, Averie from Love Veggies and Yoga’s pb cups! Sometimes ab cups as well, of course!

    I love eating nut butter all alone but there is nothing better than mixing some into a fresh hot bowl of steel cut oats with some cinnamon and vanilla. The oats melt the nut butter and just a little bit goes so far. It is by far my favorite combination but I’ll put nut butter on almost anything I eat!

    I LOVE MaraNatha butters! I just take a scoopful and eat it but I do enjoy a classic pbj sandwich. I’ve also made a chocolate peanut butter banana shake for my boyfriend once. He said it was really good :)

    OK, it isn’t really a recipe, but I like to eat it straight from the jar. If not, haha, then I like it on crackers – yeah, so simple, but soooooo good. I like the crunch with the rich almond butter flavor. :)
